Generally stalling out while cruising could be a crank sensor, fuel pump, or ignition module. Being it only happens intermittantly I would suggest getting it checked out by a pro before you get stranded.

This could be a timing chain or belt. This also could be clogged fule injectors, clogged fuel filter, manifold leak, plugs and wires need replaced.

Sounds like the computer is putting the car in limp home mode you need to have a scanner hooked up to the computer and see if a code is set and then go from there to repair the problem.

If it is running bad enough to be backfiring, the Check Engine light should be on. I would start with scanning the engine computer for fault codes.

2003 Jeep stalls at highway speeds?


You didn't replace the PUMP!!! but you were on the right track (-:

there is a high pressure pump in the tank with a strainer sock, also replace the VC (vacuum canister) while doing all that work, it is near the tank at the left rear of the vehicle and replace ANY hose that looks slightly suspect! This IS a lot of COSTLY work.

good luck
