    Default 96 xj

    I was driving home today and my jeep just quit. No warning . what do u think it could possibly be ? I dont think its a fuel pump, becase it didnt act up right before it cut off

    Does it turn over, and just not start?? It almost sounds like a crank position sensor (CPS) to me..

    Well I very well could be wrong... but since that is what mine did when the CPS went out, I was just driving and it died on me... I am almost willing to be that is what it is causing your issue

    Check for spark at the coil and then check fuel pressure with a gauge, I bet its the cps too!

    This is such a wide question its best to start at the basics. Check for fuel pressure and spark. That will get ya started. We'll go from those results.
