I'd say about 1 out of every 5 times i go somewhere in my jeep, less than a quarter mile down the road my jeep just dies. When it does that it wont start easy after that. The starter has to turn the engine over like 30 times before it starts and then wen it finally does start it revs to about 2000 rpm and stays there for 5-7 seconds. Im thinking its something to do with the fuel pump but I dont really know. please help
Brand new spark plug wires (best kragen sells), brand new diamond fire E3 spark plugs, brand new distributor cap, brand new idle air control sensor on throttle body. Always do maintenece and change all fluids on time with royal purple. Jeep is very well taken care of. Sensors have been going out alot lately and its hard figuring out which one is messing up next. I'll b going to pick a part soon cuz i think my TPS is going out. Dukie564, how sure are u on the crankshaft position sensor? thanks
pretty sure - same thing happened on mine, it would randomly die - didn't matter if i was stopped at a stop light or driving 65 down the interstate. Sometimes kicked right back on, other times took 5-10 minutes to start again.
easy way to find out - if the rpm gauge IMMEDIATELY and very quickly drops to zero when it quits while driving, that's a pretty dead giveaway.
Trust me...it will get worse. It's like a $50 part, just change it
