Why is the idle too high after taking off the plenum?


Sounds like there's a leak between the plenum and lower intake. Try spraying starting fluid around the base of the plenum while it's running. If the idle changes you have a leak.

2003 4cyl Santa Fe has intermitent jerking that sometimes results in stalling. Increasing in frequency. Recently had tune up, new belts and fuel line clean out. This jerking was happening before tune up...


Scan for codes. Discribe when it jerks! Under a load,going up hill,pulling away from a stop? Does it shift okey? Possibilities--Bad ignition coils, Bad Throttle Position Sensor, Bad EGR Valve,Dirty Throttle Body ETC.

When in park idle runs high, also sounds loud when shifting


Sounds like you have a major vacuum leak someplace under the hood.Look for any hoses that are broken or came off. You should be able to hear aloud hissing noise if you have a vacuum leak,also could have a intake plenum gasket sucked in or a stuck open EGR valve.

Intermitant jerking & radiator fluid boiling


My jeep has had the same jerking problem for about 3 months. And last week it started boiling in the over flow jug. But never went over 220 on the temp gauge. 3 days latter it just died driving down the road and started smoking under the hood. It was way over heated . And would not start back up after cooled off. Come to find out it blew the head gasket.
