I don't know if this will help but I had a problem with an 85 ford ranger truck. It would consistently stall,
within 4-6 miles everytime I drove it. It would have to sit 10-15 minutes before it would start again. Then it would run fine without any more problems as long as it didn't sit for more than a couple of hours, then the process repeated. I got so used to this that I pretty much had mapped out
my way to where ever I was going so I could have a safe place to pull over when it happened.
The problem turned out to be the "pick up coil" in
the distibutor. It runs great now, seems my gas mileage is a little better as well. Another possibility
is the "map sensor". I do not know if this is your problem, but I do know both these parts aint cheap,
about $50 each. Let me know what ya do find out.
I'm having Cherokee problems of my own that I can't
figure out. My 89 is hard to start but idles fine. It runs
good until it changes into a higher gear, then it loses
power, misses and has a slight backfire. Any ideas?
