Hi,

It could be a number of thing causing this problem, so the best way to approach it is to get the mechanics to check the ignition system first when it's not going and if that system is working ok then it can only be the fuel system causing it.

But to give you a definite fault is very difficult unless you can give me fault codes etc.

But go with what I said and that way you can keep an eye on what is actually wrong with it.

Thanks

Jason

Try replacing the fuel filter first and the primary fuel filter screen in the fuel pump may be dirty also. As for the the one in the gas tank which is a part of the fuel pump, your just going to have to keep the gas tank half full and add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank for the next feet fill ups. As for the fuel filter along the frame rail on the drivers side, they have a life of 30,000 miles or 1 year and needs to be replaced within those recommended intervals. Good luck and hope this helps, Note: the gas is what keeps the fuel pump cool, so low fuel in the gad tank will have the fuel pump run hotter causing it to fail prematurely

The first thing I would do is replace the fuel filter. This is fairly easy and inexpensive and will eliminate that as your problem. It also is most likely over due to be changed anyway. After that I would of course check for any codes and then check the fuel system pressure. This will diagnose any problems with the fuel pump.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied


My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
