I'm not sure what we're dealing with here, a 97 buick, or a jeep, but in either case it's either a vacuum leak, or your idle control sensor, or idle air contol valve. I suppose it could also be a clogged fuel filter. That's probably the best place to start... cheapest anyway.

Having trouble starting my 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country. It started fine this morning switched it to 4 wheel drive full time and it only read it was in part time on my dash. Waited for it to respond and...

is this car in USA< on this USA forum or elsewhere?
tossing coin now, lands..
USA 96 XJ jeeps. guess 4Liters. inline 6.
what engine is there we cant GUESS engine yet,we dumbbbbb
its not 4wd caused. !!! or transmission caused !!!
cranks but does not start.
has many causes, fuses tops list on all cars made and 10x with EFI.
what matters in now , all cars ran before, now matters, only.
USA answers for GAS engines not diesel.

1: got spark, my guess is no, but this is next.
2: the dashcluster , key on does CEL glow? if not, fuses are blown.
CEL means check engine lamp. it must glow, key on.

3: then SKIM lamp if car has security, feature it must glow then go out and not flash, nor stay one while cranking, if it does key secuity.
i think only Europe had this in 1996 , not USA>
aka: VTA,VTSS,SKIM and SKIL (or in English IMMO LAMP)
as in immobilized, if in uSA its not there. best guess..
the 2second rules applies to all jeeps.
on usa cars, the ASD relay
It may fail to energize if yes, fails, then spark is ended.
the ASD relay pulls in (energizes) and you crank
then the ASD drops before engine starts or runs for 2seconds and stop, if YES< that means the PCM (ecu) did that on purpose
and only SCANNING the PCM with any scan tool ever made
1996 to now, USA, works.
all do. scan it. see DTC errors, bingo why ASD drops
there are 7 reasons for the DROP and all show a DTC error.

Friday it sputtered and shut off 2 times the thrid time I started it I gave it some gas and it drove for a few feet then started sputtering and smoking from the right side of the engine. I pulled over...

Have the water pump checked. The bearing maybe seizing up causing the pulley to jam and smoke up the belt. Also as the motor got hot from pump not spinning, may have caused the motor to shut down as an overheating precatuion.

Car shuts off while driving

if car shuts off while driving it could be a bad crank sensor. a bad crank sensor will shut car off while driving, then it will not start for about 10 minutes, when it starts it runs fine until it goofs up again. the popping could be the sensor for it controls timing along with the cam sensor.

Shuts off will driving, especially if I hit a bumpy road.

check the wires to the fuel pump if they have rubbed against something and the insulation wore through hitting bumps or rain could cause it to short and kick the relay and resets again and will start
