Try checking for any vacuum leaks. There should be a PCV valve that runs off of the intake manifold. They cost about $15.00 new from the dealer. After many years they crack, break and leak. This fixed it in my situation. Hope it helps

Idles rough when first started and stalls


check the fuel pressure regulator by unpluging the vacume line to it you should hear the idle change, if it doesnt then its bad.If its ok then i would start checking the vacume lines to the egr ,and check the egr itself.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Keeps stalling, engine


P0505 means the whole Idle Control system, not only the IAM. Check all related sensors (i.e. crankshaft sensor). Check with a voltmeter direct at the connector of the IAM if you get any signal. Remove the IAM from the TB, connect him, let someone switch your ignition key to ON. The IAM need to drive in/out for a short time to find the right position. Hold the IAM near a hard part, that they cant drive out completely! If IAM works fine, check the fuel pressure, check and clean your TB ( if not done yet). If that doesn't work, come back again please

2005 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 liter v8. when coming to a stop, the engine stalls. Problem is happening more often now. Had the Jeep in driveway today and was revving the engine and when I let off the gas...


Check and clean the idle control solenoid and passages, check the throttle position sensor and perhaps the crank sensor. Don't buy anything without testing or you will be spending money on stuff you don't need.
If stumped, get a chiltons or haynes manual and go through the test procedures they outline. Any good shop does this and you should too!
If it tends to stall that tells me that the iac is possibly opening late (sticking) but that can also happen if it gets bad information from the control system. (where testing is important)

Jeep stalls


try doing the procedure below, should cure the problem.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
