Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
Good afternoon, Lou here in Miami, Florida. I have a '98 Jeep Cherokee/Sport 4X4, in line 6. I just had the head replaced, but now experiencing excessice idle when I start it. It automatically goes to red-line. I've repalced all the sensors, made sure all bolts have been tightened, hoses have no cracks or brakes. Please advise..
The problem may also be the automatic choke. It could be stuck in fast idle. check all choke settings and linkages clean if nessesary. There is a separate fast idle adjustment screw on the choke linkage that controls engine speed while the engine is warming up. The tip of the screw rests against a cam that slowly rotates as the choke opens during engine warm up. Turn this screw counterclockwise to decrease the fast idle speed.
