Question about Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

While idleing the jeep doesn't want to stay running. And at intersectons or pushing on brake and clutch it stalls. Seems like the carbuator is getting too much air. Runs fine when valve is held down manually. Jeep smells like fresh gas.

Gas smell indicates rich operation. perhaps your fuel pressure regulator diaphram has torn.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r7427423-fix_poor_idle_high_idle_stalling_fuel . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Why does my jeep turn off if I don't toggle the overdrive switch enough?


it stalls with foot in the throttle...... really.? try to say what you and car are doing at the od switch flips.. sure moving fast.
but doing what, up hill down, flat, acceleration, decel, or coasting?

ok, this can be real easy.
engine tuned up is 99%
ever heard of scan tool.
connect it, and log data (or person 2 watches) and log DTC and streaming data?
if the Magic relay called ASD drops the the engine stalls (this is its purpose) and if it did the SCAN TOOL tells you why it did.
every time...
asd class 101.:
http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html

is transmission stuck in 3rd gear, limphome.??
the trans mission will not stall a car. 99%
that is because the clutch has a stall speed.
and slips greatly at idle, say 800rpm is hot idle , so if say the trans solid locked into top gear. and you came NEAR a stop sign, coasting... and braking.. say.....
and as rpm dropped, the clutch will slip and no trans ever stalls the engine.99% unless the engine is super weak and misfiring hard.
or ASD DROPs !
that is why we scan to see ALL ERRORS> engine and trans.
see?

Car goes into gear when idling but will not move


sounds like total lost of engine power, or the brakes are frozen in ice.
if you can push car by and with brakes off , is the engine bad.
the clutch is not bad, if you stall any engine.
so what engine,, they use many on Acura's
cant fix the engine or know EFI with out that fact.
Generic.
lost compression on any or all cylinders.
bad fueling. (lost fuel pressure)
its most likely not spark if it idles nice, but doing the 60k tuneup
is real good idea now that it dont run ,now.

old sparks can work with lose speed then under load misfire.

thrust bearings are bad and the flywheel is moving out of range of the crankshaft sensor, or the crankshaft sensor is sitting too close to the flywheel.

1996 jeep grand cherokee stalls when i put it in gear the RPM's drop down and it stalls it also acts up when i push on the brakes like its running out of gas. After it stalls it wont start unless i leave...


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.

Jeep stalls



I had the same problem... frustrating.

I picked up a repair manual at the parts store. I took off the throttle body and cleaned it with throttle body cleaner spray. I changed the Idle Air Control Valve (idle speed motor) which was very clogged. While I had the throttle body off I also changed the Map Sensor and Throttle Position Sensor. The manual will walk you through the steps. I had never done anything like this before. If I can do you so can you.
My Jeep has never run better. Good Luck
