How can i minimize the fuel consumption of my jeep 2000 cherouki laredo 6 cylinders ?

There are several things you can do. Make sure the engine is in good tune, replace the air filter, Air the tires up to 34 pounds air pressure to lessen the rolling resistance, How you drive is most important. Take off from traffic light and stop signs slowly. accelerate steady, don't be in a hurry to reach cruising speed, unless, of course, you are merging with fast traffic. Anticipate stops. Start slowing down sooner when coming to a stop sign or traffic signal. Coast on the downhill streets, and use the cruise control as much as possible. Don't waste gas warming up your vehicle in cold weather. It will warm up quickly while you are driving. Any time spent idling is zero miles per gallon.

Stalls out at stop signs and red lights. Couple of time while coasting. Hard to restart. Eventually does. Prior to stalling, RPM is low and oscillating slightly. Once, after restart, had no control on...

I would take it to your local shop and have them test the idle air control motor which is mounted on the top of the motor and also check the mass air flow meter located in the air intake system. If you can keep slight pressure on the gas pedal and the motor continues running, then I would first suspect the IAC as being the problem.

1993 ford escort with manual transmission. When the gas pedal is released the engine does not automatically slow down. It does slow down after a minute or two. Is there a spring that needs to be replaced?

There are usually return springs but it could just be that your car coast a long time when in high gear before it starts to slow down. My Jeep is the same way, if I'm running at 55 I can coast for a few miles before I slow down very much.

Car starts to stop by itself when foot is not on pedal.

Time to see your dealer's service department unless this a feature of the car. Has it always been this way since new? It is shifting itself to first gear which would certainly slow the car down.
