Question about 1984 Jeep Cherokee
I have a 1984 jeep cherokee it just started stalling on me after i get gas or if i drive it longer then 20-40 mins. but if i pull over for 20-30 mins it will go again.if it is the fule filter how i would replace it and where is it?
That is an easy fix. It is your choke. The choke is not getting power. I just picked up an 84 with the 4cyl, had the same problem. Did some trouble shooting and figured it out rather quickly. The person that had it before me actually put a new choke on trying to fix the problem, but didn't check to see if it was getting power. I re-wired the choke strait to the fuse box on an accessory fuse. Has been working great every since.
It is at least worth checking out.

That's a big IF, orv1979. I would go to Auto Zone and invest $20 in a Haynes repair manual so you can see where the filter is located on your vehicle. Also you will have other troubleshooting guides in the book that will help you in the future.

Tips for a great answer:
Engine stall or RPM fluctuates
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
