SOURCE: Jeep GCL Backfires Stalls

Aaron, I had the same problem. It is the most expensive part of course the computer. I replaced everything as well till I replaced it. They are remanufactured and have had problems with them as well. I am on my third one now at 200k miles. Oh and by the way it does not show up on the diagnostic check. Good luck

Need to check for fault codes. Possibly a faulty sensor causing the fuel system to run rich or lean.
