cruiser54 Go to and do tips 1 through 5 thoroughly. Tip 27 is strongly suggested also.

biffgnar Check the main harness run behind the block. It can get impaled on one of the mounting bolts back by the fire wall and the bolt starts rubbing wires creating all sorts of random issues.

1988 Jeep Cherokee XJ randomly cuts off,

I have an 1988 XJ automatic transmission. It randomly shuts off on me almost as if it is stalling out. I figure it is an electrical issue, but I can't narrow down what is is exactly. I have replaced the TPS, ignition coil, battery, plugs, and Crank sensor. It cranks right back up almost every time though.I don't know what else it could be. Please help me out! Thanks!
