Having problems with your 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country ?
We have a 1996 jeep cherokee country. it runs for 15-20 minutes then it dies. It will start right back up and go for another 15-20 minutes and die again. 4 people have looked at it, Not One knows what it is? New spark plug wires, new plugs and we paid for a sensor. want to keep it best car we've ever had. Any ideas. Has anyone had this problem before. Oh the anti theft key did fall out but was put right back in. The last person disconnected it. Hard to find good service people.
Without being able to do any testing, I can tell you that the two primary causes of that problem are either a bad fuel pump or failing crank sensor (also sometimes cam sensor). You mentioned a sensor but not which one. When it stalls, turn the key on and listen at the tank to hear the pump.(best if someone else listens, as it shuts off when operating pressure is attained) If you cannot hear it likely it's binding when it gets hot. Another cruder method is to bang on the center of the tank and then see if it starts.
