I recently purchased a 94 cherokee that needed a little love but was mechanically sound, or at least appeared to be - according to 2 mechanics I took it to before purchasing. After nearly 2 weeks of performing perfectly, the engine cut off while driving. For no apparent reason, I immediately lost the engine, power steering, and brakes. I threw the car in neutral and was able to start it again. Being 2 hours deep into the mountains without cell phone coverage, I kept driving, trying to get cell coverage and call a tow. It cut out every 30 minutes or so, at different speeds. Each time it took a few minutes longer to start the engine. I should also mention, when it stalled, the radio, lights and battery were still functioning. Each time it felt like something was firing and missing, if that makes any sense. At first, I thought it might be a fuse or sensor misfiring, but it felt like fuel wasn't getting to the engine when I attempted to restart it. Maybe the fuel filter or a collasped fuel line? Please help!
have the same problem?
