Put an ODB-II meter on it and look at fuel trims, air flow, and O2 sensors. Also follow any codes it might have. I would guess maybe intake plenum gasket as these crack often on the 4.0L.

Overheats while Idling.


there are 3 cooling fan reays in a 98 aurora and they are computer controlled. the low speed fan relay should turn on when the ecu detects a temp of 229 degrees and should turn off when the temp has dropped to 216 degrees. it is best to check the temp with a computer monitor so you can see what the computer is reading. If you turn the a/c on you can see if the fans are operating. If they don't come on with the a/c you may have a problem with the high side a/c switch. A bad thermostat can cause the fans to come on late.

My 97 CAmry was stalling at idle. Sometimes at stoplights or even when comming to a stop. Ran fine most of the time except at idle. It would shut off like i turned off the key. Found out the coolant sensor was shorting out intermitinly..Disconnect the sensor and sending unit if not sure which is which. The check enginr light will come on but that could be the stalling problem.

My 94 Sedan DeVille had the same problem. The car ran great but would stall whenever I stopped at a stop sign or traffic light. Turned out to the the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). It monitors and controls the idle. What happens is the secondary idle (idle when the car is warm) is too low. Since all the controls for fuel mixture, idle etc are done electronically, they can't be manually adjusted. The TPS is the most likely cause of your issue. A diagnostic test (performed free at most chain auto parts stores) will be able to confirm this or lead you to another component. Best of luck to you!

97 plymouth voyager 237900 kms stalls stop lights runs fine at higher rpm it seems to rich at idle


Try pulling idle air control motor off & cleaning it with carb cleaner or throttlebody spray cleaner & port it came out of and see if that helps. If it cures it for a while, then starts doing it again, replace the IAC motor.
