Remove the throttle cable and take a look at the throttle plate...make sure it's closed all the way. Spray it down with carb cleaner. Make sure that the cable moves freely and is not binding...replace it if it dosen't. If you have cruise control check those cables as well.
That should fix it...if not get back to me.
Good luck.

My 1998 jeep won't throttle down after starting, any ideas?

First thing i'd do there is remove the large rubber hose that attaches the throttle body to the air cleaner box right at the throttle body. Then spray the inside of the tb with carb cleaner, making sure that you also open the throttle plate and get underneath it. Often you will get a crud buildup there that can hold the plate open a bit and therefore raise the idle. Check the cable(s) that attach to the tb to make sure that they are free and not frayed, then re-start the engine (cleaning will cause partial flooding so you may need to keep the pedal on the floor and then release it after it starts). After it's running and cleared, spray cleaner into the passage near the top of the tb...that goes past the idle control valve pintle and should clear any carbon deposits there. The engine may stall when you are doing that so keep the idle up by moving the throttle linkage by hand as you spray, or, just re-start it if that happens.
I would also check to make sure all vacuum lines are attached and that rubber ends aren't split. Any small vacuum leak can also cause a higher than normal idle.
Other than that, you'd need to do a code check (larger parts stores do that free) and use those results to go further in testing. Most often though, you won't need to go further than that.

Water on the floor

I've ran into this problem before with another jeep. What happens is the condensation drain line from the evaporator housing gets plugged with the material that insulates the housing and the water can't drain and seeps through the seems and drips on the passenger side floor. Chrysler did at one time sale a plug kit for this. What you would do is drill a 1/4" hole in the side of the housing on the left hand side near the bottom and put a stiff piece of wire in it to unplug the drain line and then plug the hole with the plug kit from chrysler. just when your drilling the hole make sure you don't drill into the evaporator core or your freeon will leak out as well. I'm not exactly sure how far from the bottom to drill the hole if I remember right it is 2 inches just about center. Chrysler did have a service bulletin on this you may want to ask them when you see bout the plug kit.
