Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee
What you just replaced was the cam sensor (also called a stator). Either it's not indexed properly in the distributor or you have the distributor in a tooth off. As the distributor isn't adjustable, you can't turn it to compensate. The item you intended to replace is the crank sensor which is located on the drivers side of the bellhousing at about 11 o'clock looking from the rear. I can't remember the exact indexing procedure for the sensor you changed but likely you already have a manual that shows the way it's installed. I do remember something about using an alignment pin while installing to keep the part where it belongs. Shutting down while driving is a symptom common to both those sensors as well as the fuel pump. However, other sensors need to be tested as well just to be sure. Have the system scanned and see if any codes are stored. Manuals also outline individual component tests that can be done using a digital ohmeter.
