I read alot of problems that sound like mine, but not exactly. I have three and I don't know if they are related or not. If anyone has some advice, I could sure use it. When driving my truck down the road, all of a sudden I realize it isn't running. I turn the key and it starts right up. Secondly it has started knocking quite loudly when I give it gas. I let it sit for awhile because when it would warm up it would stall and not start until it seemed to cool down. Now it is sqealing loudly on top of all the other problems. If you have any suggestions on any of the problems, please let me know.

Drain your oil and look for glitter. It sounds to me like your oil pump pooped the bed or your filter is plugged, or for whatever reason your not getting enough oil, especially at higher RPMs. Maybe someone else has an idea, but that's what it sounds like to me, and definitely don't start it again until you check the oil!

Question

What yrr Jeep do ya have? If it is '79 or older the problem when driving and it quits running is the igniton modual under the hood mounted on the driverside fender well.It has one lead w/ 4 wires and another lead w/ 2 wires. Its ford ignition modual that will cost around $15-20 from AutoZone.
The next problem I would check would be your timming.('79 its 8deg btc)It maybe to far advanced. I would have to say thats why your having the hard starting problem when warm.
the last sounds like a belt,powersteering, alt, you might replace them all. If you do, take some sand paper and go over the pullies to get rid of any glazing the old belts may have left.
Hope this helped.

It's an '84 Jeep J10. I was wondering if may be something electronic? Do you think that the knocking is something to do with egr or connected to bad firing?

Would installing a MSD 6A solve this problem?

Yeah - the MSD replaces the ignition module

mostly yes. you can run the msd inline with your stock ignition box. but if it is bad you will have to replace it. or you can run directly off of the msd.

Id do a full tune up, cap, rotor, plugs, wires, oil, filter, and new belts. The belts sound like that squeaking.
