The idle is controlled by the idle air control valve, an electronic valve fitted on the inlet side of the engine, they get sticky and cause the car to stall. Sometimes they can be leaned and lubricated but in most cases a replacement is required.
To prove it is this valve, with the engine idling start turning on as much as possible, lights, stereo, heater, aircon on full blast etc.. the car should pick up on revs as these things are activated but your car will probably stall due to the valve sticking.

Replace your hose going from intake to brake booster ( vacuum leak) check all other hoses also. Clean the throttle body. And a tune up probably wont hurt either.

Will stall while idling in drive and not restart right away. Jeep will seem to turn over, and RPMs rev up, then the engine dies.


no its more than likely not related to the trans,if you are having shift problems though,i would have the tps(throttle position sensor) checked out.another thing to check is the vacume lines to and from the egr valve and the valve its self for proper operation.

The idle is set too low, the alternator is not charging enough, poor battery connection, filthy throttle body, dirty air filter are some of the most common causes of stalling at lower rpms.
