2000 grand cherokee V-8 stalls out


Start the engine cold and as it warms up, pull the vacuum hose off the EGR valve and see if it keeps running. If it does, replace the EGR valve. The reason the lights are all coming on and the gauges go to zero is because the engine dies and when it starts they return to normal. The EGR valve can stay stuck closed from carbon deposits which is fine for the warm up mode but it needs to open when the engine is warm or it will choke it out. This is not unusual and you will need to replace it. Look on the internet for your make and model an image of your EGR valve it will be easier than explaining it to you. They are in most cases on or connected to the intake manifold or intake plenum.*** Please rate me on this answer.***

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalling and not starting


Since you've replaced many of the usual suspects (fuel pump etc.) you might want to look into testing or simply replacing the crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor. If you intermittently lose one the these signals it would cause the problem you describe.
