From your air filter follow that black intake hose to its end, there is a clamp at the end. That's where your throttle body is located, its like a trap door/flap/butterfly. Make sure you are using intake cleaner and a clean rag to spray and wipe clean Open flap can be done by pressing on gas pedal(may need help with this) keep open and spray into throttle body , when this is sticking most of the time the flap/butterfly is very very dirty fully of a black greasy gummy substance. when clean it should return to its original color of metal. Good Luck contact if you need more help

Hight idle

Bad idle solenoid. Located on throttle body. It's black. Plugs in to wiring cable. You need a torx bit to remove. It's a cheap and easy fix. Also, get some throttle body cleaner and a tooth brush. Saturate the inside of the throttle body with cleaner and scrub out the black soot. Do this with throttle body in wide open position. Be sure to clean the edges of the butterfly good. They soot up and stick preventing throttle body from closing all the way.

Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad(or in this case,has gone bad). I suggest that you change the fuel pump and use a fuel cleaner in your gas tank as dirty gas may have caused the problem to begin with.

Jeep starts and dies, if I give it gas and put it in gear and drive it will be fine. This happens if car is warmed up or cold

I would check the idle air sensor some times they get all carboned up and don't let air in during idle. It is located on the back of the throddle body.
