Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

1997 jeep cherokee cranks and runs fine but after it warms up when you let off of the gas it shuts off. then when you try to crank it back up it acts like it is starving for gas then it will rev up and stay running as long as you dont let all the way off the gas. it only does this after it gets warm.

I am 99% that is what is wrong.

I can give you something to try. Since the Jeep is a chrysler product, chrysler vehicle computers run off of the battery and in most cases at idle the alternater is not pushing a ramped charge. Try cleaning the battery terminals and see how it goes. I have found that it works in most cases and is the easiest to do. Let me know how it goes.

i know on the 99 mountaineers with the 5.0 the way the fuel lines were routed from the factory, heat from the motor would vaporize the fuel in the lines when engine was cut off warm. It would turn quite a few times before starting after that happened. try turning your key on and off a couple of times before you actually try starting it and it should start quicker. I know this from experience.

if it shuts off after running for a while and will not restart for about 10 min,a bad crank sensor will cause this. abad crank sensor will make car shut off and not restart for about 10 min. put a scanner on to make sure. a check engine light does not allways come on. if you do not have a scanner, any auto parts store will scan it for free.

Engine stops immediatly after starting


Sounds like faulty Crank position sensor. These tend to go out alot on Jeeps. Most of the time it will be running fine and then it will shut off like someone shut the key off. Hope this helps.
