2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

Car stalled. Jumped off, ran 15 miles and stalled again. Won't even try to start. When trying, makes a whirring sound. The engine fan turns. Starter is good.

Cranks but no start condition-do below to determine whether it's fuel or spark issue: Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/COP/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
