Engine Cooling problem
1999 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
Start the vehicle and gauges read fine. After driving for 15 minutes or so when I come to a stop the idle works fine but when I push down on the gas pedal it will stall and the temperature gauge will drop to 100 and the engine will die. I have changed out the thermostat, temperature sensor, radiator and didn't have this problem until a couple of days ago. I try to start it immediately but have to wait about 5 minutes before it starts up and for the rest of the day it does not occur again. I did start it up one time and did smell gas but not in the engine area more from the muffler once it started.
