Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have a 94 JGC, had it about 5 years now. It has ALWAYS had a problem with stalling at stops, but has always started right back up, or if I placed the AT in Neutal in time, it would pick up adequate RPM's again and idle. No one was ever able to find out where that problem came from. I had to have the fuel pump replaced almost 3 years ago and we have done several other things to it for the stalling problem, that I read about online. (seems lots of ppl have stalling problems with these cars)
Now, it stalls every time it reaches 160 degrees F; and will not restart until hours later. Luckily, we have gotten the vehicle home now. We changed the fuel filter, before realizing that it was engine temp related, but now are at a loss as to what to do. Have been told that the cpu could be the problem and to 'hit it with a hammer'; lol. Done that, the test was a failure. The Jeep stills stalls at 160 degrees when sitting in the drive idling. Does anyone have any ideas? Call Price at 4097871583 or respond here. Thank you!
Here are my theories
Idle Air Control valve (IAC) - allows a small amount of air to pass though throttle body at idle since the butterfly in the throttle body is closed at this time - if this doesn't open the vehicle will stall
Air Intake Temp Sensor - Helps correct air fuel ratio by measuring the temp of the air coming through the intake
Oxygen Sensor - Largest determinate of air/fuel ratio after the vehicle almost reaches operating temp which is approx 160 degrees
Coolant temp sensor - Largest determinate of the air/fuel ratio from cold up to the point when the oxygen sensor takes over
EGR Valve - 5.2 Liters are known for these failing, they redirect a small amount of exhaust gases back into the intake manifold for re-burning (emissions thing). Sometimes they get stuck closed and allow for too much exhaust gas back into the manifold. But usually this would cause very poor performance as well as shuddering and stalling
Use what you know about your condition and what these common fail items are and see if any of them sound like the problem

My 1990 pontiac bonneville sse would usually stay started (IF it would start), but if we drove more than a few miles and shut it off, it was a gamble if it would start again-usually we would have to wait 8-10 hours or more and then it would start right up like nothing was wrong. For a few months this went on, sometimes it would start every time for a week, then we'd be stranded and have to leave it and come back several hours later- turns out it was the starter all along, replaced it and haven't had any problems since. I just didn't realize that a bad starter could be bad but still work some of the time over a course of months!
