Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I had the same problem. It was getting to where the car stalled every time I stopped. I took it to the dealer and they told me that I needed a new Idle Air Control Motor and a complete fuel injection service (including spark plugs and wires). The price tag...only $750.00. I went online to a few different forums and consulted a trusted technician in my hometown and was able to fix it myself. The problem was carbon buildup on the throttle body. It sounds difficult to fix, but it is right at the top of the engine and easily accessible. Click here for directions to clean the throttle body. I suggest the one where you remove teh throttle body first, you can get it much cleaner that way. I know the link is for a 2004 and older, but it is the same process for 2005 and up. For the cost of a can of throttle body cleaner and some shop towels, it is worth it. Total cost to do it myself was $6.50 (yes, six dollars and fifty cents) and about an hour. It has not stalled since and that was about 6 weeks ago.
