2002 jeep cherokee wont start after it runs and then shuts off

It will start, then i drive it and it will drive long distances fine. Once it shuts off past five minutes it wont start again. It will turn over but not start. If it sits for more than a hour then it will start normal. Also sometimes when i starts it spits and sputters it hesitates to stay running, so it did this to me today, and i opened the gas cap and it stalled right away, and would turn over but not start. Could someone please help, i dont have the money for a mechanic, i would like to try and fix it myself. Please if you know, help me. I am at my wits end. Thank you so very much.

SOURCE: 94 Jeep Wrangler intermittently stalls when put in reverse, drive

Take the air inlet hose off where it enters the throttle body and take a look at the throttle plates. It is likely that they’re dirty and have a build-up of carbon deposits. That is the most common cause for stalling that we see in the shop for your vehicle. Sometimes all it takes is a good cleaning to cure the stalling problem. There is an idle speed setting on your Jeep, but to check and/or perform this service step requires the use of a computer scan tool for your vehicle. If the cleaning doesn’t help ask a repair facility to check and reset, if needed, the minimum idle speed on your Jeep.


Thnx.

You might want to start by replacing the crank sensor first.

Quite possible you have a bad ignition coil. As coil heats up it breaks down and will not return to normal till it cools down. Check for spark the next time this happens. If spark is weak or not there, it warrants testing or replacement.

Definite symptoms of a bad catalytic converter. A smelly exhaust and loss of power are early signs of catalytic converter problems. You may notice increased heat on the floor boards as well, When the converter goes bad, it heats up. Hope this answers your question. All the best!

Have a 2000 jeep Cherokee starts up runs fine shut of wont start then starts up runs fine


check the basics, air, fuel, spark one at a time, check fuel pressure and spark, you are losing one of the three for it to shut down, one thing to also look at is the crank sensor signal if you loose the signal it will shut down

My jeep Cherokee 2002 automatic wont idle. when I apply breaks it dies, now it wont idle at all so I cant drive it. starts fine. I had to free run in neutral to move it now Im scared I did more damage.


The problem I would say is in the brake booster diaphragm or booster valves in that there is a hole that is allowing air directly into the manifold when you apply the brakes. Check the vacuum line for tightness at the clamps as well. Normally a new booster will fix the problem

My 2003 jeep grand cherokee will crank and run fine. drive a couple miles stop at light will shut off want crank back up .let it set a while will start right up.


Check the crank position sensor. If this goes out, when it gets hot, the sensor will think the crank/timing is in the wrong position. They did this to prevent engine damage in the event that your timing is off. However, when the sensor gets old, as it gets hot, it malfunctions shutting off the engine. Then, when it cools down a bit, all is well.
IF IT IS THE CRANK SENSOR, REPLACE IT IMMEDIATELY. Repeatedly trying to start an engine w/the CPS out can throw the timing off. This happened to a friend's Kia Sepphia once and it locked up her engine.

My 2002 jeep stalls while driving and sometimes wont start. is this the fuel filter?


More likely the fuel pump

Had similar problem with 96 Jeep 4.0L engine. Tracked it down to the connector for the distributor pickup. Spliced in another connector and hasn't stalled since. Also, have you had any codes? Easy way to check on Chrysler products: turn key on, off, on, off, on (not starting) and watch the 'engine light' on the dash. It will flash off/on. Count the flashes with short pauses between and longer pauses between code. When you get a 5 count and 5 count, that is the end. This may also help

sounds like coil problem, coils will start cold then get hot and stop. when coil cools will crank up and run till it gets hot, try to replace the ignition coil,dont think it would be a crank sensor, try a coil,thanks robert b.
