Question about 2007 Chevrolet Aveo 5 Hatchback
When first starting in the morning , it will start and run for a minute and then shut down and has to be restarted , have to hold the pedal down to keep running sometimes
Dirty fuel injectors will cause this sort of symptom. Purchase a bottle of Chevron Techron fuel injection cleaner and put it into the fuel tank. If dirty injectors are the problem, this should clear it up in a few days. What is the mileage on this car. Above 60,000 miles, sludge will sometimes cause the idle control motor to stick, which will also cause this problem. If the injector cleaner does not work, remove the idle control motor and clean it with aerosol carburetor cleaner.

Wrong air/gas ratio of mixture. Nasty problem, can be dirty nozzles or dirty air filter, almost invisible crack in a hose, loose input manifold or similar, low coolant level, making the auto-choker to behave funny, the choker's sensor, old worn gasket on the carb. I haven't looked at Cherokee, so sorry if there are no carb engines for it.

Engine stalling and rough run
issue at low speeds
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) 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
