    Try replacing the exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR) valve. My '88 Comanche wouldn't run until I changed it.

Check out your cold start choke. It is designed to cause your fuel mixture to run "rich" until it warms up. It is basically a heat sensitive coil that reacts to heat from the exhaust manifold.

i have worked on many of jeeps in my time lol. wow i sound old now. this has happened to a couple of them. the only way to make sure the trans is in "fit" condition. is to rifill the trans with fluid, doing so with the engine hot. allow to idle for about 30 min to help heat the trans up and fill. if the prob still cont, then you will have to have the trans serviced. an electrical problem would not cause it to blow fluid, only a mech prob would. if you have further questions email me at

In my 1996 jeep cherokee sprot i have a problem with starting my car after i have been driving it i dont know what it could be the cam positioning sensor? getting to hot and sometime it will just die

The crankshaft position sensor located @ 11:00 on the rim of the bell housing from the driver position. seems to be a very common problem on the Cherokee. They cost between $70 and $80. or $250 installed.

Car dies at random moments

But, you did not change the crank sensor (on the drivers side of the bellhousing, just where it's a real pain to get to)
