Check for a loose wire around the coil area push them all on tight, and look for dirty or rusty wire conectors

Why does my jeep turn off if I don't toggle the overdrive switch enough?


it stalls with foot in the throttle...... really.? try to say what you and car are doing at the od switch flips.. sure moving fast.
but doing what, up hill down, flat, acceleration, decel, or coasting?

ok, this can be real easy.
engine tuned up is 99%
ever heard of scan tool.
connect it, and log data (or person 2 watches) and log DTC and streaming data?
if the Magic relay called ASD drops the the engine stalls (this is its purpose) and if it did the SCAN TOOL tells you why it did.
every time...
asd class 101.:
http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html

is transmission stuck in 3rd gear, limphome.??
the trans mission will not stall a car. 99%
that is because the clutch has a stall speed.
and slips greatly at idle, say 800rpm is hot idle , so if say the trans solid locked into top gear. and you came NEAR a stop sign, coasting... and braking.. say.....
and as rpm dropped, the clutch will slip and no trans ever stalls the engine.99% unless the engine is super weak and misfiring hard.
or ASD DROPs !
that is why we scan to see ALL ERRORS> engine and trans.
see?

You most likely just need the tach repaired, they do fail. There is a company called Speedotach that repairs these as well as others, just google it

1999 Durango: while driving down the road my rpm gage drops to z...


this sounds like a bad connection or a bad VSS sensor... either way it needs replacement/repair.. if the tach sends 0 info to the ECM the car will quit or run in an open loop causing it to run real poor... have someone like Auto Zone??? scan it for free and give you the computer code results.... this will help you unravel the mystery of the stalling.

Engine will rev. No drop in speed, no increase in


likely what you are seeing is the first signs of slipping. If permitted to continue, likely it will get worse and you will then lose a bit of speed when it happens. In warmer weather the trans runs a bit hotter and will react to that. If you cannot hear the revs increasing but the tach says they are, it's also possible that for some reason the tach isn't reading correctly. Any good tech should be able to tell the difference. Problem I have is that I'm here and can't drive it to give you a "definite" on either.The only way to verify this yourself would be to attach an external tach to the engine and compare the rpms of the one in your dash to that one.
