Engine Size?

if its a 4.7 liter I wouldn't have a problem replacing the cam sensor and the crank sensor. Very common for either to fail and cause the symptom you have described.

If its a 4.0 I would look at the crank sensor and the ignition coil. Two common problems as well.

It shouldn't be to hard for your mechanic to duplicate the problem. Sounds like the problem may be occuring with a hot engine. You mechanic can have a fuel pressure gauge and a spark tester hooked up while the engine is running. As soon as it stalls he can check fuel pressure and check for spark. This will at least get him in the right direction.

While driving it would stall suddenly, then restart, then stall, now it won't start?


Checking for spark at the plugs would be the next step.
A mechanic would also check the computer for trouble codes.

1999 Jeep cherokee will start i can drive for about 20 min


Replace, or have the fuel filter replaced. Replace the air filter as well. If it still does it, have the fusable link(s) checked, as if the connection(s) is not secure, it will cause the vehicle to start sometimes, or die while driving. Also have a diagnostics done at your local mechanic, or a local automotive store (usually a free service; stores may vary)

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.
