Jeep dies when you let of gas


Check/replace the Idle Air Control Valve, located on the intake manifold. It is likely sticking or otherwise not operating correctly.

Also, check for vacuum leaks.

2000 jeep grande cherokee, will start if i jump it off, but when i give it gas, it idles down and stalls out


Check your charging system. Jumping will put a slight surface charge on the battery but that will only last as few minutes. If system is not charging, you will drop below operating voltage and the engine will then stall after disconnection jumpers.

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

Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
