Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
Starts fine but sometime wont idle , as long as you hold a little pressure on pedal it runs fine , but when pressure on pedal is relesed it will die , will start right back up and seems when pressure on pedal is slowly released it will idle , and once warm it idles fine . could this be the iac and are they hard to replace , 20 years body work experience so i am handy with tools . thanks for any help.
The iac would be my first guess but this troubles me as the when the engine is cold all the sensors are ignored until the fuel system goes into "open mode" but to change the iac is simple 2 screws and unplug the module and instructions come with a new one to tell you how far the air pintle is supposed to be set at,
If you can change your own oil than this is easy.
I did rebuild wrecked vehicles for about 15 yrs and gave it up as back in the day we never wore mask's and hacked up to much hardner so now I just fix them,in a chrysler,jeep dealership of course.
