Question about 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Idling My car was idling for about 10 mins. As it was idling my vehicle was a little above 1 in RPM area. The longer I sat there it revved up to about 2 or 2.5 and the car started shaking as if it was going to cut off. It did it about 3 times but there were in 1 minute intervals. I need to know whats going on ASAP!

Sounds like your car is misfiring..when was the last time you did a tune up in it?i suggest that you might do a compression check on your vehicle check for variation in each cylinder also if you get it done and its all normal then make a major tune up and you will be fine..

Truck dies when idling


HI
first I would like to tell you, do this procedure only if the 5th digit of your VIN is C or K.

Description

The engine control module (ECM) learns the idle position of the throttle plate to ensure the correct idle. Anytime the throttle body is cleaned or replaced, the ECM must learn the new throttle position. The idle may be unstable or a DTC may set if the throttle position is not learned.

Conditions for Running the Throttle Learn Procedure

• DTCs P0101, P0102, P0103, P0107, P0108, P0111, P0112, P0113, P0506, and P0507 are not set.

• The engine speed is between 450-4,000 RPM.

• The manifold absolute pressure (MAP) is greater than 5 kPa.

• The mass air flow (MAF) is greater than 2 g/s.

• The ignition 1 voltage is greater than 10 volts.

Throttle Learn

Important: Do NOT perform this procedure if DTCs are set. Refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code

(DTC) List - Vehicle.

1. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.

2. With a scan tool, monitor desired and actual RPM.

3. The ECM will start to learn the new idle cells and Desired RPM should start to decrease.

4. Ignition OFF for 60 seconds.

5. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.

6. After the 3 minute run time the engine should be idling normal.

Important: During the drive cycle the check engine light may come on with idle speed DTCs. If idle speed codes are set, clear codes so the ECM can continue to learn.

* If the engine idle speed has not been learned the vehicle will need to be driven at

speeds above 70 km/h (44 mph) with several decelerations and extended idles.

7. After the drive cycle, the engine should be idling normally.

* If the engine idle speed has not been learned, turn OFF the ignition for 60 seconds

and repeat step 6.
8. Once the engine speed has returned to normal, clear DTCs.
Good Luck

Over revving


Check for a vacuum leak. This can cause a higher than normal idle. It can also cause a surge since the idle air control tries to adjust the amount of air required to idle.

Poor idling


Coils,fuel filter,dirty throttle body.

After cleaning the throttle body it looks to be stuck and RPM remain above 2000 when idling. Engine accelerates and decelerates going back to idling at about or above 2000 RPM.


When you cleaned the throttle body, did you remove the Idle Air Control valve/motor (IAC)? A dirty or defective IAC can be the result of your problems. The IOAC regulates your vehicles idling under various condictions. Try cleaning it first then replace if needed.

Please remeber to rate this solution. Thanks!

My engine is revving upon start of vehicle and the battery light goes on--- it will drive but it seems like the engine is idling too high


if your hearing a high pitched sound,it is probably your alternator working overtime to charge your battery,if it idles at a higher rpm,then someone tweeked ur idle speed,check under the hood,u can easily release using a wrench,
