Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country
My car starts up O.K.. But as soon as I release the gas peddle, the engine cuts. If I restart the care and keep my foot on the gas, I can drive forever! If I stop for a second, the car dies again and I have to restart again.
This happened before about a week ago. But then the problem corrected itself. This all started after I had a tune-up. But I do not know if this is at all related.
It sounds like that when they tuned up the vehicle they may have broken a vaccum line on the motor. What you need to do is check all the vaccum lines on the motor and look for one that is off or is still on and has a crack running down the side on it. This happens quite frequently on older vehicled where the lines have dried out from age and you move them and they crack without you even knowing. The other option is that when they tuned the car up they lowered the idle too much and it worked ok while there but in a few days the ports for the idle start to clog back up and then the car stalls at low idle. My bet would be that you have a vaccum line that is either off or cracked. Good Luck, RAC
