It would have to be running lean to damage the muffler. Lean is an indication of lack of fuel. I would suspect plugged fuel filter or worn out fuel pump

What engine ? 3.1 , 3.4 , 3.8 L When it dies check for spark at coil pack . Pull the two plug wires off of the same coil and crank it over , is there spark ? If not , could be the ignition control module , or crankshaft position sensor . Videos on youtube !

Every time i put a new muffler on my 1997 jeep grand cherokee the motor bakfires and blows the muffler compleatly apart it dosent do it right away it runs fine for a few miles then boom then it starts to...

What a funny set of events.Of course the tail pipe is clear(you would have checked that)The only other thing it might be is the cat/converter is blocked.New muffler is allowing a heap of air through and it suddenly clears and the bang.They do block up so it may be worth getting it checked.Hope this helps

First check all wires for any thing loose.
The muffler blowing up leads me to think the engine is so far out of time the PCM cant correct it.

REally you need to get it to a good mechanic.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running

since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.

Jeep GCL Backfires Stalls

Aaron, I had the same problem. It is the most expensive part of course the computer. I replaced everything as well till I replaced it. They are remanufactured and have had problems with them as well. I am on my third one now at 200k miles. Oh and by the way it does not show up on the diagnostic check. Good luck
