4.0 engine stalling

I have a 1997 JGC 4.0 4x4 laredo. The engine keeps stalling during normal drive and sometimes right after start. I took it to my dealer and they cleaned thorttle body and the car was running just fine for a couple of days. I also changed distributer cap and sparkplugs and wires. Could it still be dirty or do you have any other ideas?

Thanks a million,

Search in this forum, there are several good articles on stalling. Check your air filter, and air intake for any cracks or holes.

Try replacing the crankshaft sensor and the timing sensor. This worked for me.
