    I've been having the same problems with my 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. At a light or stop it starts to idle rough and studders like it was to take off and then die. Almost as if it wants to die. I'm very confused on what's going on..could it really be something as simple as the throttle body or is there something else that might be wrong??

    I've been having the same problem with my 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It stalls every time I got to take off from a complete stop, or it studders if I make a slow turn...

    I have a 98 Jeep Cherokee, sometimes while it's idling it starts to run rough or when I stop and go to take off it acts like it's missing out, but if I rev up the motor it seems to quit. Also sometimes when I start it it will be running fine and idling but out of nowhere it start missing out and idling rough. Then I can rev it up a couple times around 2000 rpm and it stops. But it never does this while I'm driving 45-50 mph. What might be wrong

Jeep grand cherokee choking problem after a few minutes.


Check your idle air control valve. Sounds as though it may be the problem. The other item could be the TPS, but I doubt it because it would idle poorly all the time even after warming up.

Car stalls


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Die's


This happened to me recently on my 2004 Grand Cherokee. It stalled out three times in a month. No one came up with any codes except that my throttle sensor needed to be replaced ($80). After it was replaced, it stalled two more times, but this time the check engine light never came back on. My local Jeep mechanic looked it over for around six hours and could not find anything. However, my amps on my battery was half of what it should be. He stated that the computer may not have enough juice to control the throttle idle that activates when the vehicle is in low idle speeds. He also stated that once you remove the old battery to touch the battery cable terminals together (you can use a wrench if terminals won't touch) for around ten seconds. This is supposed to drain any remaning juice from the jeep and is supposed to reset the idle memory and computer for the vehicle. After replacing the battery, crank the Jeep up and let it run for at least five minutes without ever touching the gas pedal. Leave it to idle and I repeat, do not touch the gas during this time. The mechanic stated that letting the vehicle run for at least five minutes without touching the gas pedal will set the computer for the Jeep to run efficiently with the new battery and will also set the idle memory for the jeep. I did so and you could actually see the RPM's going up and down until the Jeep found an efficient idle setting. Try that, I know it sounds simple, but I tried every else before this, and it has not stalled out since a couple of weeks ago. I'll write back if it does before the end of next month. Hope this helps.
