Jeep seems to drive fine but will die upon decelaration after high speeds. If I'm going down the highway, runs great. Take an exit and decelerate to stop. Upon stopping, I find the engine is dead. Restarts immediately and runs fine. No check engine light is on. EGR valve sticking, crnk sensor? Any ideas.

With 180,000 I would check the fuel pressure.

Cranking - 39psi
Idle - 31psi
When I actually drove it with the fuel pressure gauge on the vehicle, I only could make it die out once. When that happened the fuel pressure certainly did not fall substanially. Maybe to 28-29psi at most. Is that enough to make it die? I will try this process some more.

turned out it was the EGR valve. It was sticking open causing the truck to falldead upon deceleration.
