Question about 1988 Jeep Cherokee
My son's cherokee seems to die often when coming to a stop sign, then tonight after he started driving, he almost couldn't get it to stop at the stop sign. Is it an idling problem? Also, it clunks intermittently usually after it has run for a while.
Please check the EGR valve, located on driver's side of engine below intake manifold. Inside of the EGR valve is a diaphram pushed out by a spring. The spring rusts away, leaving the diaphram in the wrong position for idling. I have stretched out the spring, or just replaced the valve and had good luck thereafter. Valve is round about the size of a pop can (diameter) and shaped like a UFO.
