As i wsa driving home in my jeep two days ago it decided to break down. what had happened is i was driving doing about 50 when the car just stopped running i was crusing and slowing down naturally. I lost all power steering and when i tried to come to a stop i had to practically jump on my brakes. so now when i try to start the jeep it cranks but wont turn over. this came at the worst possible time for me and if anyone might have a clue to what it my be your help would be much appreciated
Jeep lost all power as i was driving 96 jeep cher 4.0L on 1996 Jeep Cherokee

HAVE THE OIL PRESSURE SENSOR CHECKED. THE OIL PRESSURE SENSOR IS MADE TO PROTECT THE ENGINE. IF OIL PRESSURE DROPS. THE SENSOR WILL SHUT DOWN THE VEHICLE TO PREVENT IT FROM BREAKING DOWN. CHECK THE SENSOR AND ITS CABLE.
