I have a 1996 Jeep Gr. Cherokee Laredo 6 cyl. With 275,000. For the last 6 months it dies. No real rhyme or reason both at idle and while driving. Generally it starts immediately at idle, unless the engine starts chugging and sputtering. Then it has to crank awhile. Then get an odor of gasoline. Most of the time if it dies while driving, if I leave in gear it will fire on it's own and start. Sometimes it happens a few times in a row. Repair shop has repaired a vacuum leak at brake booster; no change. Crank sensor; no change. PCM; no change. Catalytic Converter; no change. Fuel pressure reads about 53#. Lights don't seem to flicker when engine dies. I am getting ready to change the Idle Air Control Sensor and Throttle Position Sensor, but not sure if they will affect problem. Can you think of any other areas. At 275,000 it's probably mine until the auto graveyard. Have had no other real problems over the years.
have the same problem?
