starts up but dies seconds later!

I have a 97' grand Cherokee Laredo with the 4.0l

My issue is that it drives fine but occasional driving it around for a day since I turn it off go in a store etc, I come back try to start it- it starts every time, but immediately shakes and shuts off! And will keep doing it every try! Now if I leave it for a while and come back it starts up with no problem, doesn't shake and drives around just fine like nothing ever happened! Please help!

Next time it happens check your fuel pressure. Could be the fuel pump.

Could be the security system
Reliability is relative
