Almost certainly a faulty cam sensor. This sensor suffers over time with the repetitive effect of getting hot and then cold along with the engine. The cam sensor determines when cylinder 1 is at compression TDC and this timing dictates the fuel injection cycle on the engine. If the cam sensor fails to report signals then the ECU fails to inject fuel appropriately and the engine stalls. Many times as the cam sensor gets hot it expands and any discontinuity becomes apparent. As soon as it cools down the cam becomes functional again.

    The 22RE does not have a cam sensor, fuel injectors are timed from the TDC pickup in the distributor.

    The location of this device depends on the design and age of engine. On many modern overhead cam shaft engines the cam shaft sensor is located either on the end, or to the side of the end, of the cam shaft housing. On older design pushrod engines the cam sensor is found where the distributor is located. This type sensor assembly makes use of the distributor shaft that meshes, at its bottom end, with a gear on the cam within the engine block. In this respect the distributor shaft is an extension to the cam shaft. On the top end of this shaft is a magnetic armature. The cam shaft sensor, that measures the movement of this armature, is located in the cover and uses either magnetic or ‘Hall effect’ pickup modules. Wherever the cam sensor's location it suffers from temperature related failure effects such as a marked reduction in voltage output leading to hot engine cutout.

    The 22RE is an overhead cam engine with a single timing chain and NO CAM SENSOR or crankshaft sensor for that matter, it is a rather primitive engine.

    Please quit posting misleading content, thanks.

i would look at the temp sensor. i believe when they fail, they peg out all the way cold or all the way hot. so your truck thinks it is still cold when you have reached operating temps, causeing your misfire.

1991 pickup 22re motor starts for 2seconds and then stalls or turns over and no start. Once in a great while will start and stay running but doesnt run smooth. Acts like its running on two or three...

hav you check your plugs after it happens? a black plug will tell it has too much fuel, a wite plug no fuel at all, leads tours a faulty cold start injector, you can also try to keep it alive with carb or throtle cleaner if idles you not getting enougth fuel. keep in mind compresion test, and valve adjust, this engines require it has a regular service.
good luck

the one thing in your statment is the knockes/knocking this what is known as the big ends and indicates the engine is under pressure and needs a lot of repair.If when you start the engine when cold if you stand at the back of the car and if the smoke coming out of the exhaust has a blue tint/ie like a old ladys hair tint ,as im sure you will see.[bottom line] the engine needs replaced.adrian,,,,

Jeep grand cherokee stalls after warming up

You need to check components again when the engine is hot and in no-start condition, otherwise, you will get bad info...obviously whichever part is doing this works fine cold. ones that react most to heat are crank pickup, ignition coil and the fuel pump.(bad ones get hot and bind up)
