Good details. Backfiring through the carb suggests a leak in the air intake manifold. Check all vacuum connections. If all OK I would check three things 1) Idle Air Control valve (IAC) on the throttle, If clogged just clean it out with carb cleaning fluid. The IAC is controlled by the ECU to bleed a constantly regulated amount of air around the closed throttle at idle, this is the other half of the TPS system 2) Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) - but you have already changed it and 3) Exhaust Gas Recovery (EGR) valve. From what you describe I put money on this last one - sounds like its jammed open. The device is usually under the air cleaner and looks like a flying saucer about 3 inches in diameter. It has a narrow diameter vacuum hose attached to an arm on the top. The purpose of the thing is to introduce a little exhaust into the air intake to cool the fuel ignition temperature in the cylinders and thereby eliminate nitrous oxide in the exhaust. Exhaust gas sits one side of the valve and when a vacuum acts, through the small diameter pipe from the inlet manifold, it draws up the EGR diaphragm to open the valve. Remove the EGR and give this a thorough clean (encrusted carbon deposits - carb. cleaning spray) until you can see that applying suction to the vacuum connection allows the valve to move freely. Whilst the EGR is off check the exhaust feed pipe and make sure it is clean. If not a bit of frayed brake cable makes for a good internal brush to remove clag. Hope that these hints do the trick

You would need to figure out if the problem is too much air or not enough fuel.
The carb has three internal circuits - - idle, cruise, and accelerate.
Fuel flows thru each circuit from the bowl to the venturi.
You could have a vac leak that is allowing too much air to enter the intake, or the idle circuit on the carb may not be adjusted correctly after the engine warms up.
Or it could be something else.

The good thing about a Holley carb is they can be custom built to just about any engine.
The bad thing about Holley carbs is you can work on it for months trying to get everything adjusted right.
You'll have to figure out if it is a lack of fuel or too much air coming in.
The accelerator pump travel can be adjusted up or down as well as the power valve.

I have a 2006 grand cherokee. Sometimes without warning when I come to a stop (after driving with no lights,warning,etc.) My truck hesitates when I accelerate. The rpm's go all the way up, and my truck...


could be a bad idle control valve. causing idle surge and rise and stick open to allow a large vacuum leak in your manifold which would cause those Symptoms of rough acceleration and loss of power similar to a missfire.
