    I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited v8 318 engine. I charged the battery and when I started the car, it would start but shuts down if the gas is not applied. It will not idle.

    the jeep does not idle unless you play with the gas for a little then it starts to idle. cold it be the idle control valve? would there be gunk in it or something?

  • frkirk Jan 24, 2009

    Some days it works fine...others it won't idle and I have to drive with my foot on the gas (just a little). Cleaning the throttle body works for some poeple, but this has not worked for me, though it is still pretty dirty with carbon build up. I've tried the security thing too. I don't know how to check or read codes and I can't afford the shop this month (year maybe).



    Any suggestions other than taking off the gas tank to get to the fuel pump?

    Check the fuel pressure when it stalls, also check to se if it has spark. I would further recommend you run a trouble code test on the engine control computer

    2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport runs good. But when I stop it dies. It will start back up but anytime that I have to come to a stop or slow down with my foot off the gas it will die again. What could be the problem

If none of those fix the the prob of it not staying running the next option would be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. the exhaust runs right by it and when it get hot it will stop working and make the engine die. once it cools down the engine will start back up. do the door lock thing first. i had both problems but at seperat times.
