1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo inline 6 cyl. After driving approx. 1km it sputters and then stalls. It won''t restart right away but after waiting about 30 mins it will drive again for 1km and repeat. I was told the fuel pump is not working and after the engine is off, the pressure builds in the fuel system which allows it to drive a short distance. We let it idle as well for a short time to see if it would sputter and die and it did as well. I purchased a fuel pump but have not yet installed because of a couple reasons. I was told to pull the fuse for the fuel pump and let it consume whatever was in the line to release pressure, but it stalls as soon as I pull it out. I thought that was odd because if the pump wasn't working, why would it die as soon as I pulled the fuse for it. I then put the fuse back in and let it idle to see if it would die like before but it was still running after 1 1/2 hours. Any suggestions?
