Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country
Hello: I have about 148K on my country model. For the past several years(about 3 or so), after I drive in hot weather with the AC on, when I come to a stop, whether it is stop and go in heavy trafiic, or to a stop to park the car, the tachometer will start "reving" lower...below 400, and then stall out.
I have taken the car to several dealers, and they have yet to find the problem. Now the car has to be run for some time first..my last count was about ~45 miles before the symptom occurs. The dealers have said it may be this or it may be that, and my last service was a replacement of the transmission valve body core ($~2000), and carbon cleaning of throttle.
Needless to say, the very next day, the car stalled out again. Mind you, this happens every time I use the AC in really hot weather...KINDA IRONIC SINCE THAT IS WHEN I NEED THE AC THE MOST.
When this occurs, I have to turn AC off, and run the car for awhile before the stalling situation is alleviated. By this time, I have lost about 10lbs in perspiration weight.
The car has been very well maintained.
ANY SUGGESTIONS, EXPERIENCES, ETC., THAT MAKE SENSE WOULD BE A GODSEND..
