This may not be the case, but I have heard of them using procelain coolant tempature sensors in the early to mid 90's models. These can crack and will give incorrect readings to the ECU with can cause these issues. The temp sensor is cheap, about 10 bucks if I remember correctly, and is easy to replace. You may want to replace this first. I can't say its a 100% fix, but from the symptoms it sure sounds like it.


If that doesn't work let us know and we will move on to the next step. :)

You might have to change the heat sensor or change the fan motor. i had the same problem happen to my Corvette and the fan motor was bad.

My 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport acts like its running out of gas all the time stalls when it gets hot it starts back up again when you let it cool for 10 minutes


If it has the 6 cyl engine, a very common problem on higher mileage engines is the crank sensor located in the top of the transmission at the back of the engine on the drivers side

Where is the ignition module in a 94 jeep cherokee


Change your ignition coil. Mine wouldn't start in the cold. I had to give it gas & it would backfire until it warmed up.

My 94 jeep grand cherokee limited acted as though it was running out of gas then it died however it had plenty. now it starts some of the time and only stay running for a short while.


Sounds like a classic bad fuel pump...When the pump begins to fail, it overheats and binds. After a short wait, it cools off and runs again. However, a bad filter can often do the same thing. Replace the filter (good maintenence) and if the problem continues, change the pump.

Runs fine for approx 15 mins,then stalls out and wont start again


sounds like coil problem, coils will start cold then get hot and stop. when coil cools will crank up and run till it gets hot, try to replace the ignition coil,dont think it would be a crank sensor, try a coil,thanks robert b.

Jeep grand cherokee stalls after warming up


You need to check components again when the engine is hot and in no-start condition, otherwise, you will get bad info...obviously whichever part is doing this works fine cold. ones that react most to heat are crank pickup, ignition coil and the fuel pump.(bad ones get hot and bind up)

94 Jeep Cherokee won't start


I believe the green wire is a pulse from the distributor and its a ground signal. I could be wrong since is been a while since i left the jeep dealer...I would take the coil out (2 bolts on most) and take it to autozone. They can test it in minutes for free. Either that or the ignition module but more common is coil.
