    I will know more tommorrow, at the moment the jeep is in the driveway and stalled after a short time (10 min) after a 1 hr period. There is definitely a problem, not the starter, not the fuel pump, and maybe spark plugs, crankshaft posn sensor, carb, or idle air control valve.

Hi there,

Well Normally, the car/jeep engine stall varies depending on the operating temperature of the engine. When the engine is cold, the stall is higher to facilitate engine warm-up; when warm, the stall drops. A car/jeep that has an stall that gets stuck at one speed (normally on high stall) and fails to change is usually a sign of a carburetion problem, generally a problem with the carburetor stall solenoid. A malfunctioning carburetor can negatively impact a car/jeep engine stall. By interfering with engine air/ fuel mixture, engine stall speed, and fuel flow, a carburetor problem can cause a car/jeep engine stall to become choppy and irregular and, in many instances, cause a car/jeep to shut off. So first we suggest to check the carb. then we go on fuel pump..........
Please post comments if you need more help or information........

Good Luck!!

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stalls and engine lite comes on

that is called engine stalling
all car when the engine stalled, the braking assest (helper) goes
dead. (loss of engine vacuum is cause, and is normal in all stalls)
we had to learn this in driving school in 1960, due to stalls then
are COMMON as nails, but the brakes still work. and ONLY takes more pressure with your foot ,
top cause of all stalls (and in 1960) is not getting a tuneup
ALL cars do this if you IGNORED basic SERVICE.
The ENGINE light came on
that means "get the car serviced," if you have tools it means
to a real shop SCAN it.
way ask blind web bunnies, this, we can diagnose your car,
or force you go get it serviced,
stalls have over 50 causes, a tuneup is top of list since 1884.
That old car in France sill runs and is serviced,proper.

try not to assume things, like pump or anything on car
can not be intermittent, (in fact assume it can and win)
get the car serviced
the operators guide, open it ? see the CHECK engine lamp page
see what it
