1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo starting problems

Asked by Aug 26, 2017 at 10:39 PM about the 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 JGC 4.0L about 2 weeks ago it would
start fine but every time I pulled out the driveway
and got half way in the street it would cut off and
not start back without assistance like starting fluid.
Then it wouldn't start with starting fluid. I've
changed the fuel filter, the harnest to the fuel
pump, all the relays and the crank position sensor.
It will now start with the help of some starting fluid
but I have to keep my foot on the gas and rev it up
for a while till it will stay cranked on it's own. Once
it gets hot after running a while it will recrank every
time I cut it off and restart it immediately. But if I
let it sit for a few minutes it doesn't want to restart
on it's own. If anyone has a solution for this
problem please help I'm at my wit's end.
