the only problem that vehicle has is with cooling fans is relay/module or electrical harness to module that burns up located behind and under right front headlamp assy must remove headlamp to access relay/module that is what powers up fan motor module assy.

SOURCE: wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

SOURCE: 1999 Jeep grand cherokee limited - irregular idle

I don 't know if I can solve it, but I had a very similar problem on a 2002 Grd Cherokee Laredo. It ended up being the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS). Unfortunately the part alone is about $125 and and total installed cost was about $250. It would idle high at first, then gradually work it self down to a normal idle. Once it was warmed up it it would have an up and down RPM during idling, and several times it stalled out at intersections. There was also a lot of transmission clunking going on when you put it in reverse or drive.
Runs like a dream now. Clunking is gone and idle speed is just right.

SOURCE: Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to

Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.

Jeep grand cherokee 1995 4.0 engine laredo. The transmission does not shift to high until I get to 50mph instead of 40mph. Also when I release gas pedal the rpm does not drop to 750 immediately, it lingers...


I'd check the throttle position sensor, map sensor and all linkage and cables that control the transmission. Could be a problem with one of those items or, you may have a problem either with the converter in the trans, the solenoid that operates trans converter lockup or possibly even the switch on the brake pedal. Do not just change anything I mentioned because I mentioned them, test each item for proper operation and if "stuck" with trans testing, have a good trans shop do a diagnostics on it for you.
