    My car was stalling while being driven. Also, it became very difficult to start. Both crankshaft sensors ended up being bad. I have the 4.0 V8 engine and this problem is common on this engine.

    Car does not stall but it has a tough time starting when it it slightly warm. I'm going to replace sensor. It all started after getting my cars intake gaskets fixed

    Stall at idle, replaced both crankshaft sensors. The car runs normally and I still love it. It is the only car that I have had that I like this much; I will not trade it.

    It would turn off while driving. I went to a mechanic, and he said he fixed it. I don't know if he did. I sold it.
