I have a 1992 jeep Cherokee limited 4.0 auto.
My jeep will crank over but it wont start.
It has a new coil pack newer plugs.
Fuel pump runs 1 psi more than it should i don't think that effects anything.
It has a brand new crank sensor.
Newer 136 amp alternator.
newer distributor .
1 yr old fuel filter .
i have also been putting 94 octane fuel from shell so it is not bad gas
The check engine light does come on once in a while and it says that my relays for the ac and cruise control need to be replaced that should not affect anything ??????
It is getting spark and it getting fuel but it is not running.
Now what it does from time to time it runs perfectly fine no problem starting or running for a little bit. Then as i am driving and the engine warms up it tries to stall between 1 & 2 thousand rpm and also at about 3500 rpm and also it runs at 1000 rpm idling usually when it is not acting up it is about 800 rpm. These problems usually seem to happen on warm days or when the engine gets warm. usually when it is cold it runs better at the beginning it might want to stall but then after you drive it a bit it is fine and doesn't do any thing. And when it is warm and it does start it runs really ruff and the exhaust smells like gas . I am stumped
The only things i can think of it being is the map sensor ,cps that is in the distributor or computer is going out once in a while????????????????
It could be thermal failure of the cam position sensor, I would test the throttle position sensor, and remove and clean the Idle air control and clean the throttle body also while your in there. If you have fuel and spark and it wont run then timing is the only other thing I could think of and the cam position sensor tells the injectors when to fire.

Crank position sensor, Throttle position sensor, Neutral Safety switch, bad fuel pump, idle air control valve. It could be many things...
I would also check the ignition control module, they usually don't come with a new distributor. These tend to fail when the engine gets hot, which would explain the fact that it runs for a while, then when it gets hot, it dies... Those can be tested too, if you have a ICM tester.
