Question about 2000 Jeep Cherokee
My jeep will start fine...then all of a sudden the rpm just drops and it basically shuts off. I go to start it again and it turns over but won't start. Usually after about 5 minutes it starts again and then is fine for about another day. It almost seems to be when I'm decelerating...or going down hill or a decline, not necessarily hitting the break...I've took it in to a firestone shop to get it fixed and they couldn't find anything wrong after doing all sorts of diagnostic tests. Such a pain, don't know if it's a wiring issue or what...please help!
Jack up the Jeep and take a good look at the wiring harness that goes to the crank position sensor. the crank sensor is located between the engine and trans. It's accessible from the pass. side on the bellhousing. Check the wiring going to it and you may find the wiring frayed. If the crank sensor grounds out on the oil pan or something it'll shut the car off for no apparant reason. I've seen this problem on these alot.
