    Check the distibutor cap. If you used a hi-pressure hose at a car wash you could have gotten water in it, knocked it loose, or even cracked it causing your engine to run rough.

Check your spark plugs you might have got water there and make sure that the map sensor and the maf sensor connectors are dry these two can make the car idle rough

2000 grand cherokee laredo, 4.7 engine, very rough idle. all cylinders do not seem to be firing (not positive on this). have to play with gas to keep jeep running but has very rough idle.


If your engine light is on, please get a free scan at your local parts chain and send us the trouble codes. Recommend you start by removing the idle air control valve and cleaning the valve and passages as well as the throttle body with carb cleaner. Check the operation of the valve by hooking up the connector and turning on the key (do not start the car) while it is off the engine to see if it actuates. Please let me know if you have questions.

  1. Remove air duct and air resonator box at throttle body.
  2. Disconnect electrical connector from IAC motor (#4 in picture).
  3. Remove two mounting bolts (screws).
  4. Remove IAC motor from throttle body.
  5. clean valve, passages, and throttle body (#2)

Can a motor mount going bad have anything to do with rough shifting?


I know it will give the car a vibration causing a rough running motor but as far as rough shifting, I am not real sure about that.

Rough idling sluggish acceleration


These 4.3L W motors are common for fuel leaking inside the plenum causing them to run rough and smell like raw fuel. The fuel pressure regulator leaks internally, also the injector spider leaks and the two fuel lines feeding the fuel to the spider. You have to remove the plenum and look for the clean spot. Where the fuel leaks it cleans the oil off. Before you try this check your EGR valve. The EGR valves on these get stuck open with carbon and cause a rough idle. Remove it and look for the plunger it is a small round piece that you can push in and out, make sure it closes fully. You can also clean it with carb clean and they make a replacement gasket with a screen in it to keep chunks out of it. Start with the EGR because it is easier. The parts for under the plenum are available at most any parts store. If you have any problems just ask, and if you can not find the parts I will give you part numbers. Let me know what you find I will be back tomorrow.

Rough idling,rough acceleration then runs decent when i back off


you may need to clean the injectors
what you can do is
you can buy some injector cleaner and see if this helps
make Shaw you get a decent brand as the cheep ones do not work as good
drive around with this in your gas tank
when you have in in your gas tank it helps clean them if you do some harsh acceleration but don't race the motor and don't speed
in other words get to the speed limit fast
this will apply pressure and will push through any gunk build up
there may be some smoke for a while from the exhaust but is will go back to normal when the fuel injector has finished cleaning and all the build up is gone
hopes this helps
