jeep trouble

Jeep wrangler starts up and has a normal idle, about 30 to 45 seconds later the idle becomes irregular and then shuts down, when I restart the jeep it turns on then then shuts off right away. I had a new starter and a new crank position sensor installed last winter and the jeep was running great no problems until now. HELP!!!

Without more details, it's hard to fill your profile in or provide more information about your Jeep. Any codes showing? Check engine light?

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

jeep trouble

4.0 V6 2001 Jeep Sahara 44088 miles. No codes showing, and no check engine light. I turn on the jeep and it idles normally and then shuts off the minute you apply pressure to the gas pedal, afterwards the jeep turns over then shuts off. I've been told that it could be the remote start alarm, the CPS or the fuel pump. I put gas in two days ago and drove home fine the next morning I start the jeep up again and all this starts happening.

I am looking to buy a 2004 jeep Cherokee Laredo 4.0 and the radiator hose blow up and the guy fixed it and now you have to smash the gas to start it and feather the gas to keep it started any insight?
