Sounds like brake booster is shot Clamp the brake booster rubber vacuum hose and see if that has any affect if it does the booster needs to be replaced.use a g clamp or similar.if you drive to test be aware that you will have to push very hard on the brake pedal to make them work.Also check for an engine vaccum leak

Eng. icon came on idle and runs rough no power


First, have codes read to narrow possible causes. clean Idle air control valve or replace. TPS failure or "dead spots" send wrong signals to ECM. A blocked cat., low fuel or pressure, O2 sensor bad, sparkplug and wires faulty are some of many reasons.

My 1996 dakota ran hot blew the top off the radiator. i replaced it now when it starts it will not idle and runs rough


you may want to have a block check done on the cooling system to see if the head gaskets are any good as this can cause the top of the rad to blow off and the rough running and poor idle.

Rough idle


Jeep has been having a problem with this. i take it u have a 4.7L or a 3.7L. when the when to fix this problem they should of replaced all the valves (intake and exhaust). theres a tsb on this and the dealer can look it up. even if you paid for the service they will fix it for free cuz it wasn't fixed the first time. take it back to the them and tell the to read the tsb and fix it right.
