Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport
Vacuum leaks can be identified by spraying small amounts of carburetor cleaner around the vacuum lines/hoses & connections. Any area that sucks in the carb cleaner will cause the engine to idle slower for a few seconds. Spray sparingly & allow to dissipate/evaporate between spraying to prevent any possible fire danger. The problem you are describing could also be the vacuum resivoir having a crack in it, it usuall stores enough vacuum to allow acceleration without affecting the heater controls as yours are being affected. this is usually a cannister or a black plastic mounted ball shaped device that has vacuum line(s) leading to them located on the fenderwells. good luck
