Check your air intake hose. The hose may be cracked and letting to much air into the throttle body. The smaller the crack, you will have some issues....the larger the crack, the more air and then the car wont start...

My car jerks, cuts when iddling and switches off when running


To fix the jerking rotate your tires and what do u mean by cuts when idling if it cuts off then there is a chance there is water in your gas tank due to precipitation just go to the gas station and put about a full tank but u need to keep a full tank in it when your not using for a while when I was locked up I couldn't let it idle without turning off so I would just sit in it and barley press the gas until it thought it was ok to let go and it ran good till my starter went out and the switching off you probably need to get a new gas pump line or whatever it's called I forget.

As far as I know the only thing you are doing by holding the gas pedal down is bypassing the idle air control valve. The computer controls idle speed by that valve.
Most times the valve is faulty or there is dirt in the throttle body that blocks air flow to the valve.
If the check engine light comes on there should be a trouble code for the valve or the problem.

2002 Jeep Liberty - 3.7 Liter - Engine has begun to die when rpm is at or near idle. Such as pulling into a parking place or stopped at traffic light. More frequent after engine has warmed. Once engine...


I would start with cleaning the throttle bore and plate. Then clean the Idle Air Control valve, IAC, as this is the device that controls idle speed. Use a can of spray carb cleaner and an old toothbrush. Trouble with the IAC would make sense if you can keep the engine going by holding down the gas pedal a bit.
Use the carb cleaner to check for vacuum leaks at hose connections and elbows. run engine and spray short bursts at hoses and listen for idle speed changes.
And lastly if problem is still there check MAP sensor.

Jeep 2002 grand cherokee dies unless i keep foot on the gas...


The idle relearn needs reset. Keep your foot on the gas at about 900 rpm. Make it idle for about 5-6 minutes. Slowly ease up on the gas until it will idle on it's own, it might take a while. After you get it to idle, it might be idling real low, but on its own, Let it sit and idle until for 20 minutes. After that it should be back to normal. You will have to do this every time you have the battery unhooked for a while.
