I have a 1996 Grand Jeep Cherokee. Great condition (body wise) with only 51,000 miles on it. Boy was I surprised to all of a sudden have this stalling problem happen. Go out in Jeep once engine gets warm stalling. If you wait hour between starting again will take you on a very short trip before stalling again. I to took it to Jeep they can't find anything wrong with it! Everything has been cleaned or replaced. Jeep has some explaining to do. To many people are experiencing this problem. Extremely dangerous to shut down in the middle of the road. Has been 1 year now ! Bad news for people who think it is a short problem. Strongly suggest you buy parts off of ebay. Was $200.00 savings on a fuel pump which by the way didn't fix the problem either.

Jeep couldn't get problem to happen while in the shop. Took it in twice but they charged nothing due to the fact they couldn't find anything wrong with it! Still stalls. Still have to wait a good hour for car to start again then I quickly get it home.

Hello all, I am a college student at wits end trying to fix my jeep. I have the similar stalling issue that happens very randomly and erratically. Happens a lot when i first start my jeep up it will just cut out as I am leaving the parking lot. Sometimes on highway, sometimes at stoplights, sometimes in traffic, its very random. I have replaced the Idle Air Control, Ignition Coil, Plugs, Wires, Battery, Rotor, Distributor, Crank Position Sensor, and exhaust from the cat back. It acts almost like its not getting spark or gas but I am not sure how to test this because it shows no codes and never happens at the dealership of course. I don't have any more money to keep blowing, if anyone has a good idea I am open to anything. Thanks.
#190 of 1068 My 93 JGC suddenly wont start?
Oct 23, 2007 (5:31 pm)
Yesterday I drove my '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee home, parked it, and everything was fine. I got in the car 30 minutes later, turned the key, and nothing. The lights came on and I heard the ding ding ding, but the engine didn't even crank and nothing happened.
At first I figured it must be the battery is dead, so today I tried jump starting it. However, even then I would turn the key and nothing.
Now my question is: what could be the problem here? I was low on gas when I was driving it and the gas light was on. If I'm out of gas, would it behave like this? If not the gas, what could be other reasons?

Hello all, new here. I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2 v8. I had this problem and was able to fix it in 5 minutes (once I found that it was a T20 screw which took me an hour due to the location). I was having bad shaking and idleing problems. I went to Autozone to buy spark plugs and I mentioned what was happening. He suggested I try an IAC Valve (Idle Air Control). I was able to take the old one out (it was fried) and put the new one in easilly. Shouldn't cost more than $50 or so. Worth a shot, I'm now idleing at 750 RPMs with no ups or downs. Another shot is to check out your vacuum hoses and ensure they are all in good. Hope this helps some of you out there.

THANK YOU! Have no idea if this will work but it isn't anything we have tried. Right now Jeep just sits out front. Will look and hopefully this will be the cure. Beautiful Jeep just won't stay running. Will try your suggestion. Please keep me informed if your problem wasn't solved.

THANK YOU! It fixed my problem to. It did cost 50.00 and trust me if you hadn't brought this up no one was able to find the problem. Not even the Jeep dealer. I have my Jeep back thanks to this excellent advice. Thank you sooooooo much!
