Best thing to check is your fuel filter. After sitting for a little while, it will allow fuel through it but when you put a demand on the system, it cant supply enough and will sputter and die. Its easy to replace and very inexpensive. If it continues after that, you will at least know it was eliminated and can move from there.

2001 jeep grand cherokee stalls as i coast to a stop,jest had a tuneup

I would check the fuel pressure and take a look at the throttle position sensor and the idle air control valve.
Most of the time stalling on take-off is a lack of fuel, and stalling at idle is a lack of air going thru the control valve or the throttle body.

Stalls and backfires 1997 jeep grand cherokee limited replaced the map sensor, coil rotor. distributer, spark plugs, spark plugs wires. throttle body pressure sensor ,ingnition coil IAT sensor. amd still...

you need to check the fuel pressure,and did you mean you replaced the distributor or just the rotor because inside the distributor is a pickup plate that some times causes this also 02 sensor can cause your check engine light on if so go to chain auto parts store they usually read your codes for free.

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee with automatic and 4.0 six cyl engine--it drives great for a day or two then stalls out seemingly for no reason--now tonight it has no spark from the coil--so I feel it is...

Unlikely that it's a computer. Check your coil and the grounds, make sure you don't have any breaks in the wires that could cause an intermittent 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.
