How come my 1996 Cherokee stalls when I let off the gas?

    My 96 Jeep does the thing, also at times it will lose power completely, the rpm's will drop below zero and the engine will just shut down, I've had two two different techs inspect and can not find problem.

I'd take a look at the throttle body first. Just pop off the hose that goes from air cleaner to throttle body, have a can of throttle plate cleaner handy (and wear safety glasses please), then knock off all the dirt buildup on your throttle plate with the cleaner. Pay close attention to the edge of the plate, where it contacts the inside of the throttle body, and the inside walls of the throttle body where they contact the plate. I bet this will fix you up, and it only takes about five minutes. ;)

Turn up your ile (rpm's) or your fuel filter is going bad, and it is not getting fuel which causes it to stall.

Most likely problem is dirt in the idle jets. If so, your carb needs a bit
of a cleaning.

As a temporary workaround, crack the gas open just a bit with your foot (so
it idles at 1,000 rpm or so) as you brake to a stop, then hold your foot on
the gas to keep it alive. This is an iffy proposition though, since you'd
have to brake with your untrained LEFT foot.

Try looking at your air filter. You could have a vacuum leak, like you already said. Also, check your coolant sensor and intake air temp sensor, if equipped.

1996 jeep cherokee intermittin stalling


U have to check you injectors, if this is not the problem check your fuel filter it not getting gas and then check your gas lines, Get a compressor and blow the lines out, Look for rust and dirt.

If this don't work try checking you injectors again then check to see if your getting enough gas? Pump the gas peddle then go to the hood and see if you smell gas? if not? it your fuel pump orFuel Filter, and or lines clogged up. If your getting gas up to the front of the motor then it in your injectors? it one or all.
