Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I've got a '97 jeep grand cherokee that has begun to start, idle and accelerate poorly. When starting, sometimes i will turn the key, it starts and then almost immediately the revs drop and it dies. It wont idle at a stop in drive, the revs will start to drop and ill have to hit the gas to keep it going. (ive just been putting it in neutral at red lights to avoid stalling out and a trip to the mechanics sooner than i can afford. and while im accelerating, the revs seem to almost stick and not increase, they will then drop and i have to push the gas all the way to the floor and hold it for a second to get out it. if i drive too slowly backing out of the driveway or a parking space, the same thing happens and it dies. sometimes it starts right up and sometimes it doesnt. i dont know a whole lot about cars but some of my friends do and they've mentioned fuel pump failure as a possibility. just thought id ask here before walking into a auto shop with just a problem and no possible idea or questions to ask about it. anybody got any clue?
Richard seems to be on the right trak.That where i would start first.And for installation just ask the internet,pretty easy changeout.GOOD LUCK!!! CJQUALL

Get a code test done and see what you find...sounds like a bat throttle position sensor but without proper testing, I would not run out and buy one,
