Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Vehicle won't restart after driving for a while

Example: I drive back and forth every day an hour each way on the interstate, After stopping to get a cold drink, the vehicle starts but then shuts down like it is starving for fuel. This has been going on now for several months. I noticed yesterday that after driving home, that if I allowed the vehicle to cool down for 30 mins. it started right up. Could this be the engine coolant temperature sensor? Could be the thermostat? The vehicle runs great, seems to operate just fine mechanically. Love my Jeep but she seems to be getting tempermental!

You said it's runs fine, but it just won't start after driving a while. If thermostat or temp sensor was bad you'd be overheating. It sounds like a vapor lock. Good luck

You may want to replace your crankshaft position sensor. They tend to "open" the circuit when they get heated after they have begun to wear out.

Engine cuts off


this is a hard one to fiqure out unless the vehicle does not starty at all because you have distinguish if it is gas or spark. The distributer has a module that may be breaking down. You have to remove the Dist cap and rotor to get to the module. It has two screws that hold in place using 1/4 inch nut driver to remove it. You can take it to oriellys and they can test it to see if it is good or bad. If you have a check engine light on you can take the truck to auto zone to see what codes are in the system. They will do this for no charge.
