97 jgc laredo 4.0 in line 6, 4x4...ok here it is...sometimes the fuel pump will run and start. However like now the fuel pump is not running...kinda like intermit power..sometimes it runs sometimes it...

If the pump starts to jam it wills seem like it won't run. The stuttering on startup is also related to a failing fuel pump as the intank pumps in our Jeep (I have the same ZJ)

Next time it won't start, try hitting the fuel tank with a small hammer (lighty as per not to crack it)
This can sometimes jar the pump in such a way to get the fins spinning again. If this works I would reccomend replacing the fuel pump.

You should also hear the pump prime when you turn the ignition to on (before start)
Priming the pump 3-4 times can help the stuttering on startup.

You can also get a fuel line pressure tester from most auto parts stores and verify that you are holding pressure after the pump is off.

Im haveing engine problems with my 91 pathfinder and cant seem to figure it out. it runs fine when i first start it up but after i drive it more then a few miles it starts sputtering and back firing when i...

The major causes of backfires are:

1) Emission control system not fuctioning properly.
2) Ignition timing is incorrect.
3) Faulty secondary ignition system; cracked spark plug insulator, faulty plug wires, distributor cap and/or rotor.
4)Fuel injection system malfunction.
5) Vacuum leak at fuel injectors, intake manifold or vacuum hose.
6) EGR stuck open all the time.
