Question about 1985 Jeep Cherokee
The jeep has a little bit of a high idle. when it kicks down it will stall. or when you drive it when you stop you have to do one foot on the brake and one on the gas can someone help me
Has there been any recent work done? That mioght help, and wehn was the last time it had a major tune up.
Anyways, things to check.
1. Do you have any air leaks?, when you step on the brake (power brakes) the engine takes a big gulp of air, if you already have some sort of air leak, the engine is nopt going to able to balance the air fuel mixture. With the whole engine buttoned up tight, so that everything in where it is supposed to be, try spraying some carb cleaner on places where their is a possible leak. The headers (intake and exhaust) can be one of those places. Try doing this when the engine is cold to avoid any possible ingnitions from the heat of the header. If you hear the engine rev up when you spray the cleaner, then you have an air leak of some kind.
2. Check your timing, rotor cap and points for wear or just your timing being off.
3. Check the plugs for gap and wear as well as being wet or showing any kind of improper wear. You can find plenty of pictures and examples of improper wear online or in any haynes or chiltons manual.
4. Misture. There is a lot to explain here, but with more information we could rule this out, try the other things first unless your fermiliar with your carb and then we can talk more about it.
Please try to provide as much info about your vehicel as possible whne posting. Recent work done, engine, carb/injection, modifications, is it a Cali version.
Hope some of this leads you to your problem. Please post more info or let us know how it went if you get it fixed.
