This has happened all of a sudden?
It is sounding like it is starving for fuel...

First we will check for bad fuel. A GOOD Gasline Antifreeze can get the impurities and water out of the Gas. Get a bottle and pour the whole thing in the gas tank, bounce the car around to mix it with the fuel. Start it and let it run for a little while so see if it smooths out. If does not help then look at replacing the fuel filter as it may be clogged.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down


Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

Cherokee will not start until i hold down on the gas as soon as i take foot off it dies immediatly


Might have to reset the codes on the computer. Take the + battery cable off the battery and reconnect it afer 5 minutes. Next try to start the engine without holding the gas petal down, it should start and run rought till the computer resets itself. If engine stops, restart the engine and hold the gas petal down and give it enought gas so it will run smooth, it may take 5 minutes or so for it to smooth out and run at idle speed. If this did not fix the problem, check for a vaccum hose that may be off some where on the engine

Aside from having a faulty fast idle valve, you may have a leaking intake manifold gasket.

1995 Jeep Cherokee will not stay running


Did the engine run before the cap,rotor?
The butterfly is operated bya cable from the gas pedal which controls the amount of air into the intake,the fuel is controled by the throttle position sensor,and map sensor and idle is controlled by a idle air control valve which regulated idle rpm by the amount of air allowed into the intake.
I would have to say that either the iac has gone out,or the hole where the iac pintle goes has carboned up blocking air flow,or the worst case the ecm is not the right one from a 1995 to a 1987 motor but if it ran ok before I would look into the probability that your problem is the iac.
