2001 jeep cherokee 4.0l won't start; good crank and fuel; stopped suddenly on road; no trouble before stop. scanner codes arePO303, PO432, PO456; 106,000 miles; has been good running car.

303 is a misfire on the number 3 cylinder, 432 is a bad catalytic converter or O2 sensor, 456 is a minor evaporator leak (Most likely the gas cap wasn't screwed on tight). Do a compression check on the motor. Most likely you'll find zero compression or low compression on 1 or more of the cylinders. I suspect your timing belt broke. Unfortunately this means you be replacing the timing belt but you will also have to have the head fixed and replace all of the valves. If the vehicle has a Distributor and not a coil pack you can remove the distributor cap and crank the motor over, if the rotor doesn't turn it is you timing belt, if it does the timing belt is good. Some vehicle also have a plastic cover over the front timing belt pulley that can be removed to check the belt. You maybe able to remove this and check it that way.
