This maybe a foul ess, but sometimes when an engine is very hot a vapor lock occurs, and the gasoline in the fuel lines evaporate. This is very common in high performance engines especially on very hot days. I am not saying this could be your problem, but it's a possibility. As an example I use to have a Datsun pick-up truck with a short block 350 chevy engine in it. And every time the weather got very hot in the summer. The truck would stall out, and I would have to wait for the engine to cool down and it would re-start until it got hot again. I had to wrap the fuel lines close to the engine with heat resistant tape to protect it from boiling. Does this example sound anything like your problem.

Thank you for the information, I'll tell them. Does this repair come under the extended warranty. Because I do have the warranty. Or does it fall under the 7/70K warranty. Please reply.

I see your had a rude customer service rep. Did you try calling the district manager in your area. Maybe he would of given you a better reply then that person gave you. Sometimes they are more forgiving, they are just call takers.

Check and see if the Differential center section is Aluminum - magnet should not stick to aluminum. If aluminum and someone jacked up the car on that center section - it probably bent in relation to the axles. This causes the spider gears to tumble all the time giving a Roaring sound. I did that to my 98 GC Limited, cost $750 for a rebuilt rear end plus labor.

I also have a 1994 JGC that stalls in the same way as yours, idle or 65MPH - interestingly it stopped stalling all winter [here in Michigan], and went right back to this behavior in the spring and now summer. Have you gotten any answers?

This is my experience with fuel injected 4L ... don't know if this will help but...
1. If there is an idle motor, take it out and polish it.
Remember on injected engines there is no fuel additive that will clean the
throttle body (I know this sounds stupid, but I start believing it myself every
once in a while)
On most cars stalling, bad starting, etc is broken down to
However, on my jeep there is a third...VACUUM.
Believe it or not, a cracked valve cover gasket will not only leak oil, but will
affect the way the engine runs...VACUUM.
Make sure that the vacuum system is exactly as it was designed. If you have questions, go to the dealer and buy a new set and follow them around (mine
came in two parts)

I had the same problem this last weekend. I changed the starter and it worked. I was able to get home. The next day it wouldn't start again. The mechanic suggested I buy a new battery. It worked until he left my house. He also checked all the fuses and they were fine.
I found another mechanic who found the problem. It was the ignition switch. He said it was a common problem with jeeps. My jeep is now working fine.

If it has an idle motor ... polish it!!!
Then make sure every vacuum line is correctly installed and are exactly as they
If it's leaking oil, it is also probably running badly ... VACUUM.
