    2013 JK, Stalling and not starting for 5-10 minutes

    Update, took to the dreaded dealer, they said computer needed to be updated, at no cost. Great. So they did that then drove around for an hour and could not reproduce the stall... I drove home and it seemed to be great, better throttle response, more power.

    The next night driving home from work at midnight. STALL, wait five minute started right up, only to stall again and I wait five minutes to start up. I drive home pissed.


    So today I cleaned the throttle body. Someone suggested that was a possible problem, will see.

    It sounds like a failing crank sensor. They don't always throw a code when they fail. You say it stalls after running for a while, that tells me the issue is heat related. The crank sensor lives in a harsh environment with lots of heat and vibration, so it's not uncommon for them to crap out. I recommend replacing it with a genuine Mopar sensor. The aftermarket sensors are made to fit a variety of different years and models and could cause other weird issues.

    Check the wiring coming from the crank sensor as well, to make sure the insulation around the wires are not compromised. Good luck, I know how frustrating it can be.

    Just wondering if you found anything? I have a 13 with a 6 speed trans, but knock on wood have had no issues with it. A cam sensor would also give you the same results, but just like the crank should give you a code.

    update, cleaned the throttle body about 3 weeks ago, was running great, then it stalled today (no codes) waited 5 minutes, started up and no problems


    before the stall
    while driving she did sputter once, then parked her for an hour got back in, started her up, backed out of a parking stall put in first gear when 20 yards to a stop sign (clutch in), tried to go and stalled

    this sucks

    More info. There is a common denominator that I just realized..this seems to happen when I am at a 1/4 tank of gas. Any ideas.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
