ZJ dies for no apparent reason

Excuse me since I'm a newbie to the Jeep world. I do alot of work on Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbos but none so far on my Jeep. I have a 94 Grand Cherokee 4liter with 115,000 miles in really good shape. My problem is that my ZJ will die repeatedly while driving and then start a few minutes later. The problem is no spark. I've replaced the cap, rotor, wires, plugs and coil. Still dies and then starts minutes later. Any ideas?

-Steve

Shill,

Good guess is crank angle sensor, not uncommon for that age and mileage. Check before replaceing to ensure that that is the problem. A very good place to start.

Clyde,

Thanks. That affirms one of the causes I had come up with after reading my Chiltons. I'll start with that sensor. Thanks
