Because you are doing repair at home, will not mean that the necessary tests don't need to be done. You can do many of the component tests a shop does using a digital multi-meter. You will need a chiltons, haynes, or other manual to guide you through the testing. When you find a part that you feel has failed, google the part name and you can learn how it relates to the system as well as common symptoms.
You may note I haven't told you what to replace. I won't...Only because without testing, I'd be guessing. Guessing can get very expensive very fast and will not help you unless it's a happy accident!!!
I don't guess while doing a repair and won't tell you to do that either. If you have a question about anything you find, just ask! Likely you won't give my answer a good rating...but later on you will learn why I answered this way! The systems are complex and symptoms can mimic others and only good tests can give you the correct answers!!!
Good Luck

2008 ford ranger 2.5, what could be the problem if engine starts normal but after second the engine fluctuate?


Bleeding the fuel system is typically only needed on high pressure systems like GDI and Diesel vehicles, and only to get them to start if they run dry once.
If your engine keeps running but the idle speed moves up and down there are many things that can cause that. More information is always helpful. Does it always do it whenever the car is running? Or does it only do it conditionally (IE Only when 1st started in the morning, only after warmed up or getting off the dreeway, only with AC on or at night...describe as much as you can.)
Most newer cars have computer controlled idle strategy that wants to idle the car cold around 1000-1500 rpm (After an initial higher rev called a FLARE) and then bring it down in 3 or 4 minutes to 700ish rpm. If it CANNOT bring it down by normal means, then many resort to something called FUEL CUT IDLE where it actually turns off the fuel momentarily and the RPM will drop because the car is stalling and running out of gas...then back on and it starts to rev back up and when it gets too hiugh it turns back off. Cars that do this can have annoying surges from 500-2000 back and forth at idle forever.

a vacuum leak or MAF meter problem can cause rough idle. ALmost any engine code that turns on CHECK ENGINE lamp may be suspect, does it have any current fault codes?

As well, consider Sticking manifold runners, EGR systems, and temperature sensors all can cause surging, so can a defective Oxygen sensor, slightly jumped timing, and dirty throttle plates the ECM wants to close more but they wont due to dirt. If its not something fairly obvious, it may require deeper checking.

1993 jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0


I have had this happen with the Jeep 4.0 motors because the rubber hoses going to the metal intake from the valve covers had cracks or were broken. Its been a while sine I've been under the hood of a 4.0 but that is a good place to start.

Idle Air Control valve? If you give the car a bit of accelerator can you sustain the engine running? Once warmed up the engine will probably sustain itself needing no extra help. Once in this state if you turn the steering and the revs die to the point of engine stalls then this almost certainly time for a new IAC.

Hi There, I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty 3.7L with a 5-speed manual transmisson . It was running fine and now it wont start. When I turn the key, I dont get any response. I have power to all my lights on the...


could be the battery still or it could be your battery head isnt contacting well. wen your rev the battery is good for some time and later thesame problem then i think your alternator isnt charging your battery which kills battery life span. try all this and if no charge get back to me.

Wont turn over but when i jump it it starts then


bad cell in the battery won't hold the charge, also check alternator, once the engine is running the alternator should keep it running even with a bad battery, chances are the fouled alternator caused your battery to fail also
