I will try to figure it out, after reading it sounds like the EGR valve is stuck open, this would cause the IAC to go full open in an attempt to keep the engine idle speed up.. have seen it on 5.0 TBI Fords

Reported codes: P1509, P0113, P0118, and P1298 simultaneously. Just replaced throttle body assembly. Any help? Also, why doesn't this Jeep read OBDII codes on odometer when turning the key 3x's?

The key on off method doesn't work on this model.
P0113 Intake Air Temperature Circuit High Input, most likely cause the IAT sensor was left unplugged in the air intake to engine.
P0118 Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit High Input . Likely cause the ECT sensor is disconnected or the wiring is damaged.
P1298 Lean operation at wide open throttle. Possible causes are vacuum leaks and low fuel pressure at wide open throttle.

P1509 Idle Air Control (IAC) System High RPM. Possible vacuum leaks or defective IAC valve.

1997 mystique auto transmission jerks and motor stalls especially after hill?

According to MFR Technical Service Bulletins, the most likely case of the Transmission jerk is a faulty MAF sensor, i.e. entire vacuum system as well as the MAF.
A MAF fault may or may not be strong enough to trigger a DTC but If you do have a check engine light present, run down to the nearest Auto Parts store and ask for an associate to read and print out your trouble codes. Again, according to the MFR, harsh shifting may also be a symptom of:
Torque Converter Clutch (DTC 628 or P0741)
Transmission over temp (DTC 657 or P1783)
Trans Turbine Shaft Speed Sensor (check ohmic values)

Catalytic Issue?
A sulfur smell along with a stall issue is caused by Electronic engine control V, or the Powertrain control module and/or the HEGO sensors. For stall - reprogram PCM.
For stall and smell - replace both HEGO sensors.

No Trouble codes/No check engine light?
In my experience, cleaning the throttle body (especially the small hole near the butterfly valve's resting edge) with carb cleaner, and securing all vacuum leaks is a good first step, Next checkout the EGR system, the EGR valve may be sticking open for a few seconds. Use an inkjet refill syringe connected to the EGR valve via vacuum hose. Pull a quick vacuum. Engine should stumble and then recover quickly when vacuum is relieved. Delayed reactions indicate carbon buildup.

Another quick and cheap check --
Idle air control valve:

turn off engine, disconnect IAC, restart. If no change in rpm at idle, IAC is likely to be faulty

Use an ohm meter to check the solenoid by attaching the positive lead to the VPWR (vehicle power pin) and the negative lead to the IAC pin.
Your resistance reading should be between 7.0 ohms and 13.0 ohms. If your reading is off, your IAC solenoid is bad.

Hope this helps,

Where is the iac valve

Up on the throttle body. Has one 2 prong plug going to it and is held on with 2-8mm bolts. Hope that's enough. If I've helped, please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial. Happy Holidays!

I have A 1993 gmc jimmy,It has A rough idle,idels low,& the rpm seems to pulsate.The service light cam on I ran it & came up with code # 32.what would cause this.

this is related to the egr system and makes sense when you describe a rough idle. the egr is probably stck open slightly. remove and attempt to clean with carburretor cleaner. it also helps to have a vacuum pump so you can work the diaphragm up and down. happy holidays
