2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4 Cyl 2.4L
what causes my jeep to totaly shut down during long distance driving?
my jeep runs well as long as it isnt driven for long periods of time.( around town or short trips of around 3 or 4 hour durations) when we take it to florida and drive for 8 to 10 hours straight the transmission seems like it shifts into neutral and the engine revs and then the engine stalls out and can not be started. however,after being towed to the closest jeep dealer and is taken off the tow truck the engine starts up and the jeep again runs without a problem until its time to come home to ny state. four different dealers can not find the problem. they keep reprogramming this and that but never fix the problem. have any ideas? please please help....thanks
