Hello and thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will do all I can to help.

Ask Your Own Car Question

It's likely an engine sensor failing, however, we need to get the codes out to be able to diagnose the vehicle properly. Do you have a scan tool we could check the codes with by chance?

What scan tool do you mean .
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I already changed the crankshaft sensor

An OBD II scan tool.

Ask Your Own Car Question

96 should be obd II compatible.

Does it still run ok? or does it stall and isn't driveable?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Still run but sudenly just off like no fuel

Alright, is it the 4.0 straight 6 cyl. engine?

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Correct

Alright, I've seen the MAP sensor cause this, I've also seen the TPS sensor cause an issue with stalling, so the first thing we need to do is get a scan tool on it to see what codes are stored. If you can stop by a local auto parts store, they will scan it for free usually, an Advance or Auto Zone or Oreilly, if you can let me know what codes are in it, I can help a lot more.

Ask Your Own Car Question

Or you can go by a harbor freight tool store and get a cheap scan tool for 30$ or so.
