Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

88 cherokee stalling

I have a 1988 cherokkee 4.0 litre when throttle is applied such as backing out of driveway, leaving from a red light it wants to stumble. If you do not play with accelerator it will stall. Already replaced crankshaft position sensor and it did not help. It also has a fresh tune-up, fuel filter, correct amount of fuel pressure and has had the throttle body cleaned. My next assumption would be either the throttle positioning sensor or the idle air control valve. Would really value your opinion so maybe I won't have to buy another uneccessary part.

If I had to guess, I 'd say that between the two, the tps is the most likely item to replace...If I remember correctly you can make some adjustments on yours by loosening the fasteners and turning it. If doing that changes the place where the "dead spot" happens then change it. You can also do an electrical test to determine if it's output is within range.

Hi there I have a 1988 delta 88 the problem is that when I start it up and drive it wants to stall out but when the temperature rises it runs alot better not to sure if this is the problem I have replaced...


Could be several issues that are common with GM cars :
  1. Bad MAP sensor
  2. Bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)
These are the most common areas that would cause the problem you have.

My 88 dodge mini van stalls out when i stop moving


Varnish and corrosion are the likely culprits. Fresh gas, some Heet in the tank, remove the air cleaner and spray the throttle body with carb cleaner for the cheap fix. There may be more and then it's time to take it to your local shop because what's next will require more than your old Swiss Army knife.

98 jeep grand cherokee limited 4.0 litre. starts up, during warm up process engine will idle irradically and stall out. starts back up and does the same thing. no check engine light on. cleanrd throttle...


Does this thing have a throttle body that looks like a computer-controlled carburetor?

If so, start motor and verify that it behaves irratically and then stalls.

then, spray WD-40 liberally around base of throttle body where tb meets intake manifold.

Start motor...

Does the problem go away, at least whilst for a little while?

Yes?

You gotta vacuum leak. Replace gasket under TB and tighten bolts to factory spec.

1988 oldsmobile cutlass ciera check engine light on then stalled.


Wow! thats verry low miles for an 88. Check the fuel pressure at the injector. If the pressure is low the filter could be clogged or the pump is not putting out enough pressure. Replace both if the pressure is not up to par. also check the fuel relays.
