Hi my name is shawn, I recently within the past month, purchased a 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo, quadra-trac V8 5.2. I have had this jeep approximately 3 weeks, last week I went to the laundry mat, I was in there maybe 20 minutes I came back out, went to start the jeep it cranked normally turned over and idled around 300rpm, so I immediately turn the ignition off. Tried to start again and it cranked fine and started and ran normally. I figured it was just a fluke thing and thought nothing of it. I came out this morning to go to work around 530 in the morning, I tried to start the jeep, got a very slow crank with the battery was dying, after trying to start it several times it would, start up and die
right away, after attempting to start at 5 to 7 times I put my foot on the gas pedal. It finally started and ran until I took my foot of the pedal and then stalls out again. The next attempt I started it kept my foot on the pedal and put it in drive, I drove it around the block when I came to a stop sign to let it idle it didn't stall, it has only been running for maybe 3 minutes. I took a chance and went to the wall of my morning coffee, I turned it off when inside what a bout my business and then came back out to the jeep and it fired right up with no problem, ran fine all day and started several times after that just fine, it did rain a little bit last night but the jeep has never had any problems before. Can anyone suggest wgat the problem may be? Thanks in advance! Shawn
