Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country

1997 Jeep Cherokee suddenly runs hot and dies.

This used to be an awesome vehicle until 2 weeks ago.

1997 Jeep Cherokee suddenly runs hot and dies. While driving intermittently sputters and miss fires. Check Engine light on. Replaced: thermostat, relay switch for secondary electric fan. ( I originally thought I had an overheating/fan problem, turns out its a symptom of a bigger problem).
So, thermostat, relay switch, temp sender, now I have 2 oxygen sensors. I just lost my job and I really need my truck. What is wrong with it? Any ideas?
Should I replace the 2 oxygen sensors? I also have throttle body cleaner.
What else have you ever fixed or have you seen a great vehicle suddenly run bad, heat up, cruise down the road to cough and die, what could you tell me?
Thanks for any of your time :)

The first thing you need to do is find out what that check engine light is, you local auto parts store will probably pull the codes for you for free. Other than that, maybe the head gasket is blown?

You named the three items I'd look at first. get a manual (chilton or haynes are fine for this) and a digital multimeter. Run the tests on those and likely you will find the problem. You can also remove and clean the IAC valve and passages but do not turn the valve while cleaning or it may not seat correctly.

1997 Jeep Cherokee was an excellent runner until 2 weeks ago. Now it suddenly runs hot and dies. While driving intermittently sputters and miss fires. Check Engine light on. Replaced a few things. Should...


Well the water pump sounds bad....it is a cheap fix at $34.00 and will fix the overheating problem. The O2 sensors start at $63.00...but if you have a "check engine light" on, get it read at the parts store for free and see if the code is for the O2 sensor.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied


My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
