Customer Question
Second opinion] I have...

Second opinion] I have a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Hemi 5.7L. Anytime I accelerate the engine cuts out. Additionally, anytime when I'm just traveling down the road, I'll hear a big clug sound and lose power or the engine will shut off. Problem? Thank you.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

It's a 2007!! No, I haven't checked those yet.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

Maybe. Nothing. The problem just started.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that could cause the engine to die and it's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. It sounds as if you're losing spark for whatever reason, whether its a bad crank sensor, a wiring problem, the ASD relay, or the powertrain control module itself.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool to see what fault codes have set. Have you read the codes?
