Question about 2004 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

If my vehicle has been running for a while and I have to turn it off to go to the store or whatever, once I get back in and try to restart it idles very low and dies. I try to restart several times with same results and eventually it will run enough for me to get moving. After that it's fine, this only happens when the vehicle has been warm from running. I've changed the spark plugs but nothing new...what can I do?

Car runs while driving volts light comes on and speedometor jumps back and forth car will die try to restart car acts like battery is about dead then it starts go a little ways and does it again


Sounds like the alternator is not charging the battery-not working at all. Have your alternator tested. When running, the alternator should be supplying all power to run the cars' electricals and charging up the battery for when it is needed again to start the car. If the car is running on battery power only, it will quickly run the battery down.

Engine just shuts off still have electric power but then wont turn over


Sounds like the alternator is discharging your battery as it is running, then when you try to restart there is not enough juice to turn the motor over...then as the vehicle sits the battery tries to re-energize somewhat and may eventually have enough juice to once again turn the starter motor (which by the way is a high torque motor and takes alot of amps to operate) . Have your alternator checked at your nearest parts store, they have a portable device that can check it.

Jeep stalls


try doing the procedure below, should cure the problem.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Colt idle problem.


Most likely you have a bad Idle motor which is a small motor mounted on the intake manifold. If the motor can run better with your foot on the gas but dies if removed then it is probably this. This motor is controlled by the OBDII computer which gets it's control signal from the temp sensor which is located either on the radiator or engine block (which could also be bad), if the electric fan (if equipped) turns on then this is not the problem part, but the idle motor is. Another possibility is that you have some bad /cracked vacuum hoses which should be checked for first, before replacing the idle motor.

1991 dodge colt won't idle when engine is cold.


probably oil, it may be too thick when it's cold but once it warms up it liquefies and your engine runs smoothly. you could try changing oil, I'm guessing if you have a high performance oil the chances this is the problem may be greater since high performance things are usually geared towards working well when everything is hot
