The carburettor(s) needs adjusting, there is a screw on it to adjust it, don't ask me the specifics of it as I'm no mechanic. (a grey metal thing attached under a plastic air box!)

My Jeep Grand Cheroke Limited 2000 did the same thing and the dealer replaced the O2 sensor and problem was solved. It about drove me crazy until it was figured out.

99 Jeep Grand...Idle up and down and now a check engine light


Sounds like an air leak somewhere after the air filter chamber.With engine idling spray some carb cleaner at different areas along the intake hose and the intake manifold,any place air can get in.If rpms change you have found leak.

I had the exact same problem on my 04 GC. I put some Techron Concentrate Plus Fuel System Cleaner in from Wal-Mart and it seemed to fix the problems right away. Let me know.

97 Jeep grand cherokee 6 cyl. idles down to 0 and dies.


any leaks in intake or exhaust upstream of the sensors, sparkplug condition and engine controls/sensors for out of range operation (including fuel pressure and condition of regulator)
IAC should be cleaned and checked as this can cause poor idle and shut down. I'm not saying not to change O2 sensors, but unless everything else if OK, it probably won't help.

Did you get a warranty of some kind? Hopefully you did and it didn't run out yet, if that's the case, definitely bring it back to the dealer to have them fix the problem. Most dealers give at least a 30 day warranty. You should not have this problem with a 3 year old vehicle that you recently purchased.
