750-950 is whats called for,, (RPM) if it runs fine while holding the idle at a higher rate,, adjust the rate a bit higher ( changing of the filter is always a good idea )

It appears you may have a bad ignition coil that cuts out after it gets hot. Not uncommon.

2006 4.7 engine runs rough stalls out


If there is a check engine light, take it to a place like autozone or napa, they will scan it for free. However if its doggy and stalling without a check engine light, check your fuel pressure. Newer vehicles are very finiky about requirig the proper ammount of fuel pressure to operate. If its low check your fuel filter, dirty filters restrict flow. if you replace your filter and still low pressure, then I hate to say it but you have a faulty fuel pump (EXPEN$IVE)

Why is my grand 2004 grand cherochee idoling rough


The idle air control valve (IAC) may be stuck or failing. This solenoid-type device controls the airflow into the engine at idle. It is fed control input signals from the engine's computer. Over time, the IAC valve may become dirty from EGR gases and carbon, etc. It may have a worn pintle (valve head) or the return spring may be weak or broken, causing a rough idle or even stalling from an over-rich fuel/air mixture. The second thing to have checked is the throttle position sensor.TPS. These devices will "flag" a fault on your vehicle's onboard OBD-II computer, which a decent code reader/scanner can display and clear. Third, a dirty throttle body housing/venturi can cause rough idling and poor response. A special cleaner is needed to remove oil and carbon residues from the specially-coated inner surfaces of the throttle body. Fourth; you may have a Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) that might be failing/malfunctioning. Some vehicles use these instead of the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor, which you may have. These sensors need to be checked and verified that they are functioning properly. Fifth; check/change your vehicle's fuel filter, and verify proper/adequate fuel pump pressure and flow performance. Don't run your vehicle below 1/4 tank of fuel...doing this sharply reduces the life and cooling of the in-tank electric fuel pump. These are not cheap, or easy to replace!

Stalling


It sounds like all it needs is a good tune-up. I would check the spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter and fuel filter.

Where is the fuel filter on a Saturn Vue 2004?


It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.
