Why is my jeep shutting off without warning?

Asked by Jul 30, 2012 at 08:12 PM about the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My jeep keeps shutting off on me with no warning. I'll be driving and out of nowhere, say at a red light it will die???
Sometimes it starts right back up and other times it takes like 10 min. I've heard it can be the computer ? Any
suggestions? I already took it to 3 shops, including jeep  Chrysler dodge of Tracy ca and all they did was charge me
a lot for changing parts that didn't need to be changed.

I would check when the truck dies using a timing light if you're getting spark through all the plug wires. If not, I would change the ignition module under the distributor cap. This might fix the problem.

I had the same problem with my 2001 jeep I found out it was the crank sensor. Jim
