I have the same issue with my jeep. It runs fine for about two minutes when driving it first thing in the morning then once I get onto the freeway I feel the jeep starting to run crappy and then it begins to sputter cutting the motor in and out for exactly 6-7minutes then it is back to normal. I can drive it around all day after that with no issues unless I don't start the car and drive it for 8 hours like when at work. I replaced the fuel pump in mine and am now going to try to see if its the crankshaft position sensor. I recently replaced the motor mount because the sputters caused it to bust...AWESOME I know...

Sounds like a timing problem, check timing and if off could be timing chain worn out especially if there is excessive miles(200,000 miles or more)

1995 Jeep grand cherokee is missing while running. When it is under a heavy load (driving fast) it runs fine. When idleing and slow driving it spits and sputters.


I have the same problem on my 95 grand cherokee laredo. Sometimes it starts out fine and after about 10 miles it starts spitting and sputtering. Then after a while it seems to clean out and run fine again for a little while. Then other times it starts out spitting and sputtering at the begining. I changed the fuel filter and that was not it. It is a 4.0L 6cyc. Any Ideas?

Thanks,
