TRY THIS PROCEDURE:
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, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) 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

Take a look inside the changer with the holder removed and clean any contacts you see. There also needs to be the proper amount of electronic lube inside.
Using a CD lens cleaner is also something to try.

I have one '98 GC 5,2L V8 and remember that the first time I put a CD in my changer it read error, even though it was loaded properly. After pulling out and replacing the holder once or twice it played fine.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Idle problems 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V8


There are several possibilites.
When it dies does the Engine Light come-on and stay-on? If so there are codes which are present that can isolate/point you to a more specific problem.
Based soley on your description: I would first check your Spark Plugs, Wires, and Coil. When were they last replaced? If these are fine: When was the Fuel Filter replaced? Air Filter? Check the fuel pressure at the port located on the fuel rail in the engine compartment.
If those check out okay: I would check and/or replace the Idle Sensor and/or the Throttle Position Sensor.
Basic rules on bad idling:
1. Fuel - is there enough getting to the cylinders?
2. Spark - Is there consistent spark getting to all the cyclinders?
3. Air - Is there a air shortage = clogged air filter?
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additinal information or questions. Feel free to contact me a FixYa.com!

Sounds like your idle air control valve is going bad.  It is located on your throttle body and is held in with two screws.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
