    My JGC has 80k miles on it. I was driivng down the road about 60 and it just died.Radio, lights, air still worked, power steering cut off, engine cut off, rpms cut off....It would crank 3/4 then die not fully turn over...10 minutes later it cut on magically...drove about 40 miles, then going up a hill, again this happened...then 10 minutes later turned on...then this cycle started going much quicker, until im at a stop sign and it completely i was pushed to a parking lot. any ideas?

    I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee, The problem is that the vehicle has a tendency for the engine to completely shut down while driving. At first I thought it was the battery, which I replaced. The electrical system still functions as do the lights and radio. I have to put the vehicle in neutral before it will start. Once again I'm thinking it could be the alternator or fuel pump but I don't know for sure.

    Depending on what year it is, this may or may not work - try turning the key to the "on" position (not cranking just the "accessory on" position), then "off" three times in rapid succession (on/off, on/off, on/off, on) - if you have a digital odometer, it should display any error codes that might point you in the right direction. I recently had a 2001 Jeep GC with a similar sounding problem - it turned out to be the Crankshaft Position Sensor (it would lose the signal and the computer would shut the engine off).

Also could be crank sensor

Does your car stall ( engine doesn't idle?)? It may be the Idle Air Control Valve.

I recently had the same problem on a 2000 Grand Cherokee I was about to buy - I suspected a possible charging system problem, so the owner rebuilt the alternator for me and it has worked fine so far (going on 3 weeks now with no repeats of the problem)

2000 Grand Vitara breaksdown, backfires and dies while driving after about 30 minutes. Starts again in about an hour. Changed fuel pressure regulator. Made no difference.

The check engine will be on if the key is on but engine not running . This is normal. If the check engine goes out when the engine starts there are no codes present . Did you check the fuel filter . Sometimes when a filter is dirty there is sedement laying in the filter canister . When the pump starts working the flow picks up the sedement and plugs any remaining open screen and stops the fuel completely . The engine stops . When the flow stops the sedement falls back allowing flow again. and the engine will run for another while . If the filter is old it should be changed anyway . Also when the engine stops check to see if there is spark at the spark plugs while cranking the engine .

You put it in drive and it starts ??
You'll have to figure out if you have lost spark or fuel when it stops running. Each system has its own set of tests to perform to find the problem.

What causes a 1995 chevy blazer 4x4 4.3 die when u come to a dead stop ?

Try doing the following.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Were you able to fix your problem? I'm having the same issue with my car, where the Odometer intermittently jumps from 0-48. At times when I start driving the engine stalls and the Odometer starts to act up. The Egine Light is always on. I would appreciate any help.

Coolant sensor may be the problem. It is located near the thermostat housing. It may be sticking between modes & not operating properly.Also make sure coolant is circulating in system.
