Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee
My jeep is a 1997. The problem is that sometimes when I try to start it, it won't start. Then when I finally get it to start, I'll be driving down the street and it will just die. It does this while the vehicle is moving sometimes but mostly it dies when I come to redlights or stop signs. Once it dies, sometimes it will start right back up while sometimes it won't start for 15 minutes. The longest it ever did this was about 45 minutes. We put it in the garage and they told us it was a bad fuel pump which we replaced and that has not solved the problem. The owner's that had it before had the computer replaced and we had another guy tell us that it may be that when they had the computer replaced they didn't reset it. We've also been told that the only way to have this reset done is by taking it to the dealership. I don't want to keep paying money for it to go in the garage if it's not going to actually fix the problem. Any suggestions would be very much appricated!
Needs a crank sensor.

I used to have a jeep cherokee that had the same problem, replaced a LOT of parts. I finally replaced the crankshaft positioning sensor (about $50 part that is by the exhaust downpipe) and problem was fixed and never shut off again
