It would be one of two things most of the time... and they are cheap
IF engine cranks ... fuel at the rail ...no spark ... no fuel at the plugs ... than it is crank positioning sensor BUT if the gas gauge shows empty and not the correct fuel in tank then it is the 20 amp fuse located in the engine compartment fuse clusters

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo I6 and it died out on me one day driving down the road. I tried starting it back up but it would turn over but not fire up. I replaced the starter because i had problems with it before and still did the same thing. I tested for fuel, and compression they are all good. It just isnt getting any spark. I dont know wut to try know it is getting really frustrating. I make my money with my jeep and its the only car i have some one please help

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 128,000 miles. I recently started seeing some type of oil leak coming from under the back left rear side of my vehicle and it smells like gear oil. I got under there and it appears to be coming from some rubber lines. Any ideas what this could be ?
can u tell the color of the oil.?

If its coming from rt rear and its a blk rubber line then it sounds like a brake line and it would be a clearish yellowish color.
