does it crank back up after you turn it off?

It turns off on its own and it wont turn on right away and sometimes it wont even turn on till a day later or so

check the voltage to the coil and the coil itself, it might work for a few minutes or all day and then when it gets hot it stops working, and then after it cools off(a few minutes or a day) it might work for awhile again. giving you the on/off symptom. if thats not it check the computer also

It did that at first and they checked the coil and said it was bad so I replaced it and still did the same... So that's when I moved to the distributor and replaced the whole thing... Computer isnt bad

did you check your fuel pump pressure?

Yes and fuel pump works and also put a new filter

bad connection somewhere? you already said you replaced pretty much everything fuel/spark related the only thing left is either one of the previous parts was of poor quality and went bad or wire harness/computer. ive had over 15 cherokees and gc and i had 2 that did the same thing one was the computer and the other one had a bad distributor

Yea I have replaced just about everything. But my brother in law checked it yesterday and said it might be the crank position sensor that gives out or senda a bad signal

how long do you drive before it craps out?

have you changed the fuel filter, some times when you have a plugged filter they will run for awhile or all day, by looking at the other answeres that you got that nobody asked about fuel pressure.

I see this is 2 years ago! Did you ever figure out what the problem was??? I'm having the same thing happen! 1994 Jeep Cherokee, 255,??? miles on it! few days ago sat in a -drive through- idling, (It got up to about 210) Jeep shut off. It started back up -got food- & headed home. It shut off 4 more times on my way home! I made it home! Changed out the fuel filter! It was clogged big time! Well today I drove about 20mins from home, I sat in a drive-through and headed to moms house and it shut off. Thank god it started up so I could get outta the street & pull into a parking lot then shut off again! Would NOT start back up this time! (Sounded like it wanted to start but wouldn't) I left it there for a few hours so it could cool off then went back. Started right up and made it home on the freeway. So sitting and idling is not good! and 210 temp not good! Any ideas?? Please help!!!
