My jeep is a 1999 2.5 liter 4 cylinder, 103xxx miles on it. Thanks in advance for any help!
Tonight I went outside and drove the jeep 3 minutes from work to the store. I was in the store for maybe 20 minutes and when I came back out the jeep wouldn't crank. I gave it gas to get it to crank and it cranked up, but if I let off the gas it does again. I had to keep giving it gas or it cut right back off. I drove it up the road and for a minute it kept trying to cut off without gas but dafter driving for a minute it drove fine, although idleing low. Any idea what this could be?? Thank you!
If the battery is weak or bad, the PCM will not allow the engine to run. It will stay running if you keep your foot on it but it will shut off as soon as you let off. Do the obvious first, take the cables off the terminals and clean them to make sure corrosion is not the problem, then take the battery to be tested.

I went and checked the battery and alternator and both are good. I do have a catalytic converter that's making a lot of noise, could this be due to it being clogged or is it more likely something in the engine?
