99 jeep cherokee 4.0, has been just quitting on me w/ out notice. I'd be driving along and the motor just quits. pretty much stops sending spark to distributor. or i would leave it parked for a while and it won't start. open the hood wiggle a few wires near the coil and it sometimes start, sometimes doesn't. Sometimes i just have to park it and wait it out. i recently replaced the cap, rotor, and plug wires.

any suggestions?\

coil, distributor, crank position sensor????

Both my 92 Cherokee 4.0 and my wife's 94 Explorer 4.0 have done this too. Maddening isn't it?

Damn computer cars....

took suggestions from other similar symptoms and came up with the Crank Position Sensor. Sure enough $107 at autozone and $72 at O'rileys. Solved the problem completely. Runs like a champ. Well as good as a jeep is going to run.
