Idle problem How do I change the automatic idle speed motor in a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee v8?

    I picked up a repair manual at the parts store. I took off the throttle body and cleaned it. I changed the Idle Air Control Valve (idle speed motor) which was very clogged. I also changed the Map Sensor and Throttle Position Sensor. My Jeep has never run better. Thanks.

Its not real bad. it is located on the back side of the throttle body and is held in by 2 torx head screws. they are t 25 screws. remove them and slide the ais motor out and install the new one. when you start the vehicle up it may idle high for a while til the computer actually gains control

I have a '93 jeep grand cherokee limited 5.2 v8.


Disconnecting your battery, as you must've done when changing the starter, will cause the ecu to revert to factory settings and the computer will have to relearn the proper idle for your jeep.

What would cause my jeep when you turn the corner to cut out? It has been doing it for a couple of days....we were stopped at a stop sign and it just cut out....yesterday we changed the fuel pump and it...


I cannot think of anything solid state that would malfunction when just turning a corner. However, the automatic idle speed motor may be malfunctioning. But, for your interest, here are the various engine controls that exist on the Jeep Grand Cherokee: COMPONENT LOCATIONS Fig. 1: Electronic engine control component locations - 2.5L engine shown 91074g07.gif
Fig. 2: Overhead view of the (A) automatic idle speed motor, (B) MAP sensor, (C) crankshaft position sensor wiring harness, (D) air temperature sensor, and (E) throttle position sensor - 1992 Cherokee with the 4.0L engine shown 91074p15.jpg
