Check your coil, I had the same problem with a 91 XJ, the bottom of the coil was cracked.

Could be the fuel pump yes. Carburated is it? Maybe it's gummed up.

Jeep starts but stalls after that like it isnt getting gas


That could be low fuel pressure due to a clogged fuel filter, or a weak/bad fuel pump, or even clogged fuel lines. I'd suspect the filter first, though.

Starts but stalls right away


Have you checked your fuel pressure? Could be the fuel pressure regulator. Hard to say without a year and model of the jeep.

My 1999 jeep wrangler will stall as your driving. it acts like it ran out of gas. after sitting it will start right up. do you think its the cranshaft position sensor?


Could be the cps, however it also sounds a lot like a failing fuel pump. Check to see if you can hear the pump running right after it stalls and you turn the key back on. If not, the pump is beginning to bind.

I have a 1990 4 cyl jeep wrangler i just filled tank with gas, drove 1 block and jeep stalled. Jeep starts right back up but will not stay running, seems as though its not getting enough gas. Is this a...


It could be the pump but you need to verify if you can hear the pump running after it stalls and you turn the key back on to try and start it. If you don't hear it it isn't running.
The pump is inside the tank but it dosen't come inside, you need to put it in there. That requires removing the tank. On a 90, there is a filter mounted on the chassis near the left rear tire. I'd replace that first as if you replace the pump, that should be replaced as well and if it's plugged up it may in fact be the only problem.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running


since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.
