05 jeep grand cherokee 5.7 liter stalls while driving why ?


Does it stall going down the highway or idle, maybe both? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Does it stall cold or hot? Once it stalls does it restart quickly, I just wondered if it gives you enough time to do some testing? Some of the national brand auto stores will check p0 codes for free, if there are any.

learn to DIAGNOSE. (?)

i cant help you all, i have only above is parts lists.
we need SYMPTOMS and tests.
all i have is "Stalls while driving."
I assume nothing, I let testing facts dictate all my actions.

ok (50 to 100 causes) so..... what.?
now my 20 questions,sorry , engines and EFI are complex.
hint join toyotanation? not here?

  1. starts ok hot and cold engine?.
  2. idle at 800 rpm and regulates there hot.?
  3. stalls hot and engine,?
  4. stalls coming to stop signs? or foot pedal hard, or?

I have a 2006 dodge magnum it will start sometime fine but then it will start then about 3 seconds it would cut off to it to dodge twice they cant find out anything changed the battery got i new key...


can i buy a comma., says Vanna White>?
one rule of dealers, (avoid them use independent ASE shops)
or go broke. ($25 spark plugs there... i warned yah)
rule 2,
never take a car to any dealer unless you can DEMONSTRATE the failure. most shops can NOT fix cars that work,
they will try, and charge you CASH for trying, and no blush.

my impression is, the cars issues are INTERMITTENT.
if you dont know cars and electrics, then it may be impossible for you.
but some nicer independant shops might drive it for a day for you
to get it to fail. that WORKS, see WHY?

your engine stalls. that is the key word, random STALLS.
now lets work that IDEA.
there are 3 paths (one of them works out to 50 causes)
here they are..
1 bad DC power, 2 bad engine , or 3 vbad ISC controls.
all my answers ASSUME the car is 100% tunedup using the 60k miles column ! or up to 100k on some. cars. did you?
when it stalls can YOUR right foot (fast moving) save the stall.
??????????????????
does the stalled engine easily restart?????????????????????


The engine brain, PCM/ECU does all it can to stop stalls.
it does, if it stalls, its a very serious failure !
Now the full list ,( expanded)
1: lost of 12vdc electrical power to the EFI system. (voltmeter 101)
use a voltmeter to catch it. seen even at the cig lighter port.!!!!
2: lost spark? wont restart? (do the classic spark test)
3: lost fueling ? more tests (no start, try test fuel)
3A; flooding,? spark tips soaking wet. use WIDE open throttle to start engine and cut fuel , cranking, this help , try starting with 10% throttle ti see if ISC is stuck closed.
4: bad engine, the 50 ways and engine can fail. lost compression , on any or all cylinders , will do that. hot or cold or both .???????
one way to solve problems is by elimination.
say some head valves stick, only hot and only randomly. (nasty issues)

you find that (not saying it is, i never guess)
you prove that this way, examples
good 12vdc, power, checked.
good spark, checked. on all cylinders, not just 1.
injectors test pass, no leak down test failures and the injector balance test passes. (the FSM covers these 6 tests for fuel pressure)
conclusion"
so must be engine bad, it stalls, and runs bad , restarted or not at all.
so you find compression on 2 cylinders are low , 25psi, hot.
all else was tested good so i attack the engine'.
on old engines, i do that first.

so do tell what engine does and does not fully,
your post leaves out most facts.
stalls, and can you save the stall.
and does it restart.
and do you have 12VDC power at stall.

Car stalls and will not restart while hot


Try a used computer from a salvage yard. They are cheap. Crank sensor or cam sensor may also be bad. Not sure which one that model has.

1997 Geo Metro Stalling


After driving for a while and the engine becomes hot, when you park the car for a while, does this "for a while" mean enough time for the engine to cool down or not?

The reason why this is important is because an engine can stall for a number of reasons, and finding out the conditions of its stalling obviously helps narrow down the cause of the stall.

If it stalls, you say, when the engine cools down after being parked for a while, this handy diagnostic article will help assess the cause of your problem:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Engine_System_Engine_Stalls_When_Cold.htm

If it stalls again, like you said, after warming up and driving for a bit, the ambient temperature may be too as well as the engine itself, which then you should be inclinde to read this diagnostic article:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Engine_System_Engine_Stalls_When_Hot.htm

You may very well be right its due to fuel starvation, particularly as to the malfunctioning of the EGR, as noted in the article.

I'm sure these articles will provide you with great insight.
Good luck!
