At the air intake part, look for the idle speed controller, remove and if possible. If I am being too technical and would want some more specific advice then please email me before you vote for this solution.Thanks.

99 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 starts but wont stay running. no check engine light on


Many issues will not set a code so start with basic troubleshooting. Is fuel pressure correct? Is EGR dirty or sticking open? Is IAC dirty or sticking? Is compression correct? Bad coolant temp sensor, bad O2 sensor, clogged exhaust or converter all can cause this, even a bad vacuum leak!

2000 jeep grand cherokee has sluggish idle sometimes doesnt stay started


You could possibly have a bad EGR valve which would affect the vacuum which affects the idle. Check for a vacuum leak first then check the egr valve

My 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo is having trouble staying idle. It turns off. Is it time for a tune up or what? It also doesn't start right away like it used to.


Check idle air control valve, map sensor and manifold temp sensor...You are going to need to do some testing to find the problem. Test procedures are in most inexpensive manuals. Of course if ignition parts are old, it does no harm to replace them, along with air filter etc. Never "cheap out" on ignition parts.... you get what you pay for.

does your jeep run rough? idle is real low? and when you are driving and push the gas hard it doesnt want to move? if so it is most likely the mass air flow sensor. i had to replace that 2 or 3 times on my 1999 jeep cherokee

1995 Jeep Cherokee will not stay running


Did the engine run before the cap,rotor?
The butterfly is operated bya cable from the gas pedal which controls the amount of air into the intake,the fuel is controled by the throttle position sensor,and map sensor and idle is controlled by a idle air control valve which regulated idle rpm by the amount of air allowed into the intake.
I would have to say that either the iac has gone out,or the hole where the iac pintle goes has carboned up blocking air flow,or the worst case the ecm is not the right one from a 1995 to a 1987 motor but if it ran ok before I would look into the probability that your problem is the iac.

96 jeep cheerokee won't idle when cold.


its an oldervehicle and sometimes with age they have to be babied to run right.i dont think theres much you can do to make it start and stay running right off the way it used to other than what youredoing now which is probably sitting in it with your foot on the gas until it warms up if my guess is correct. i have a 1994 suburban that i haveto do the same thing to because its just gotten where it doesnt like cold weather.
