Could need a tune up, bad catalytic convertor, oxygen sensors, cam or crank sensors, etc. Is the check engine light on? If so, the code will help. If you want to diagnose the issue, I am happy to further assist you.

1996 jeep wont stay started and oil pressure gauge goes up and down


hot or cold engine , or both.?
the oil pressure will be in direct ratio to engine rpm. slow low, fast high
due to the oil pump connection to engine crankshaft.

stalls.: can be caused by 50 things, or just 4 in physics.
the EGR valve (if you have one, no engine stated)
can stick open and stall any engine, and in fact LOVES to. clean it.
1: list 12vdc to EFI. (spark and fuel brain) dash lights dim?
2: lost compression hot, ? compression tests.
3: lost spark, do spark tests. and timing, checks.
4: bad fueling, too much if floods, and misfires and stalls.
too little fuel, it starves and dies.

the 1 free test, is can you save the stall with a fast right foot.

we do the tests. avoiding those 50 guesses....
each tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap .

Check for fuel and fire to narrow down the possibilities.

Next time you replace your battery you need to find one with more cold cranking amps. It is much harder for the battery to produce the voltage needed in the cold. Batteries produce their peak amperage when new which may explain why you have no problems for a year.

1996 Jeep GC stalling with no warning when driving


my 96 grand cherokee had the same problem with stalling minus the clock reseting part. what fixed mine was an idle air control motor it sits at the back of the throttle body on top of the motor. the part cost about 60 bucks and it hasn't stalled out on me since. i hope this helps you out.

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.

1995 Dodge Ram 1500 stalled after it was running. Now wont start


Did you do any turn up lately. Was it rain or just cold outside. If yes you might need to check/replace spark plugs/wires, distributor cap. Simple solution for cheking that just worm up with hair dryer for 5-10 minutes.If helps look the problem where.
If wont help check the fuel pump, fuel filter.
Hope that helps.
