Jeep Going Dead and Backfiring

Have a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4x4, 4.0 liter. It hesitates occasionally while driving down the road. It also occasionally goes dead and backfires while taking off from stoplights. I have replaced the distributor, crank sensor, wires and plugs, coil, and battery. Any ideas? I am extremely frustrated!

Have someone get behind you and see if they can smell rotten eggs. It could be the 02 sensor going bad. Is the check engine light coming on? Also try to change the fuel filters. There should be two. One by the fuel tank and one on the firewall. They are very inexpensive and could be the cause of all the trouble. If that doesn't work, I would suggest hauling it off to the car crusher.

When was the last time you tuned up your Jeep? Spark plugs, cap and rotor can certainly attribute to if not cause the problem you are describing. Definitely sounds like a fuel problem (too much fuel being dumped in the cylinders.)

Check your throtle postition sensor. It monitors what postion the throtle is at and sends that info to the ecm. It will go bad and cause that problem.

IT DEPENDS ON HOW YOU DRIVE AND HOW WELL YOU MAINTAIN THE CAR. BUT 12 MPG IN TOWN AND 17 MPG ON OPEN ROAD WOULD BE AVERAGE FUEL ECONOMY, THIS IS A VERY HEAVY TRUCK, OVER 2 TONS.
