'05 LJ engine died today while driving...

hey all...was taking my daughter to her softball tourney and we were cruising bout 65mph on the frontage road when the engine just died...rolled to a stop and pulled off the road....couldnt get her to start again, cranks but doesnt run...unfort i disconnected the battery to see of i could reset 'something' but all i did was clear any cel codes, dang it...

i did have distributor chirp/squeal when i started it before we left (hadnt had that in like 6mos)

i let it rest for an hour and i pulled the dist cover but didnt see anything odd...it cranks and tries to catch but just dies...i do smell fuel so i guess i just flooding it?

any ideas???

You're camshaft positioning sensor/synchronizer went bad. Do a search on it and there's a big thread talking about it.

What I can't fathom is why you thought it was okay to drive it with that squeal. When mine did it, I was scared to even start it.

If you have less than 70K miles, it's covered under warranty... Take it in!
