If no one has removed the EGR valve and inspected and cleaned it that could very well be your problem. If a pice of debris, ( chunk of carbon) has become lodged in the EGR valve that will definately cause rough idle and stalling. There are 2 bolts that mount the EGR valve to the intake manifold. center rear ov the intake manifold. You will have to disconnect 1 elecrtical plug on the EET ( Electronic EGR Transducer) to get it out and the EET has 1 vacuume supply hose to disconnect also. takes about one half hour to pull it off and reinstall it. When you take it off, you need to inspect the mounting surface and 2 exhaust gas ports. if a large build up is present you need to clean really good. a wire bore brush and carb cleaner works well for me. make sure the valve moves and seats fully. if you can apply vacuume to the top port and make sure the valve opens and closes when vacuume is released. If it does not, or you have a vacuume leak in the EGR valve you would need to replace it. they run about $80.00 to $100.00 at your local autoparts store. Also replace the EGR gasket when and if you reinstall the old EGR valve. a new valve typically comes with a new gasket.

1990 Jeep Wrangler 2.5l idles rough/ black smoke/ fuel odor


You could pay a garage to diagnose the problem cheaper than throwing more parts at it.
The problems may be connected or they may be different issues.
Yes I would change the oil and filter, but first I would make sure the fuel system is not dumping too much fuel into the cylinders.
The O2 sensor helps the computer decide on how much fuel the engine needs, along with the other sensors. And you said you have already replaced the O2 sensor.
A mechanic would take a scanner and "read" the sensors and look for something out of normal range.
The fuel pump and fuel filter are off the list as far as causing a rich mixture goes.
I would start with the rich mixture and then see if fixing that issue takes care of the no start when hot issue.
Change the oil and filter first, and see if the injector is on too much.
You can watch the spray and tell - at idle it should be very light.
Also look at the engine temp - is it warming up to normal 195 degrees? Can you tell if the fuel pressure regulator is blown and pouring fuel into the throttle body ?
Without a scanner its going to be more difficult, but not impossible to diagnose.
Let me know what you find out.

On my 1994 v8 jeep grand cherokee limiited edition there is a wine coming from fuel pump?


either your fuel filter is clogged or your fuel pump is bad. just because it hums does not necessarily mean it is working. change the filter first it is cheaper and easier.

You haven't changed everything...map sensor controls spark and fuel mixture as does the throttle position sensor, also check the idle control valve...Don't just buy stuff...do testing first.

Sounds like its time for a tune up, new plug, wires, cap, rotor, fuel/air filter. Also have the timing checked. Could also be a fuel pump starting to go as well.

Very rough idle on 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Edition V8


If you haven't changed the plugs or had the fuel system cleaned, now would be a good time to do it. The number 1 culprit for rough idles is dirty injectors or plugs. You can try an injector cleaner in a can (or bottle) for under $10 and see if it helps, and then work from there. If there isn't any improvement then if you are able to, check the plugs for any gunky buildup and if you find a bad plug, make sure you replace them all (or have them replaced) at the same time.

Cant get the jeep to fire


Unplug the injectors, and shoot starting fluid in it to see if that helps any. Pull the plugs to see if they are gas fowled if this doesn't start it up briefly.
