The engine is starving for fuel--check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of all fuel lines. If still no help, then the carburetor likely needs to be cleaned inside and out with spray carburetor cleaner. Pay attention to the condition of the lower chamber diaphragm--it should be flexible with no holes or cracks. Hope this helps!

1980 jeep shuts off at a complete stop

no jeep stated,
which engine, and is the carb setup still stock?
and never started again, or started after parked 5 hours and runs perfect other wise. (my other shoe dropped) hark ?
engine not totally dead,? what?
that is called stalling
what is your question you never formed one.
why, , it stalled.?
why did it stall , then engine is misfiring or the ISC system is dead.
how to diagnose it? (i can go 10 pages, must I? can do. ask)
who can fix this: any ASE shop in USA can.
would some one guess? sure, never tuned up this decade wins all bets. most the time...
guess 2 (most guessing is useless) the EGR stuck open.

my guess it just stalls at stop lights. but runs perfectly????
other wise?
test1 ...
can you prevent the stall with fast right foot actions
yes/ no
this answer is key to solving the riddle.
and how hard was that, if yes. key 2 , very imporant
1: easy
2: tad hard but can.
3: had to wot the sucker to keep if from stalling, WOT = wide open throttle.

there are many tests, to solve this, got tools? meters?
we cant guess any of the above. eva.

it can be bad fuel in take, or carb fueling wrong.
it can be carb messed up
it can be bad spark
or even a bad engine, and i never fail to test engines first for compression , for sure a 1980 as i dont like spending cash tuning a dead engine. (parts and labor worth more that car.... economics)

carbs are tricky,
is the chock stuck on all the time?
is the float lever holding and at spec, if not fix that now.
are the jets clean, and all nozzels and emmusion tubes in carb clean.?
got vacuum leaks?
these carbs have dash pot devices that prevent stalls when you cut the throttle in DRIVE (is it a/t or m/t box) vacuum operated it is.
is M/t box does it stall if you push in clutch or pop it to neutral?

I'd like to get step to step instructions on how to clean the throttle body in my 2010 Jeep Patriot

  1. Purchase "02 Sensor Safe" throttle body cleaner spray;
  2. Drive the vehicle a few miles, bringing it to full operating temperature, then park it in your driveway with the engine still running;
  3. Gain access to the throttle body, and hold your thumb on the butterfly linkage so that you can open the throttle butterfly when the engine begins to load;
  4. Begin by spraying throttle body cleaner spray on all linkages around the throttle body. If the engine begins to bog because it is aspirating throttle body cleaner, quickly open the throttle butterfly to keep the engine running.
  5. Once you have cleaned all around the throttle body, spray cleaner DIRECTLY INTO THE THROTTLE BODY, opening the throttle sufficiently to keep the engine running. It will run rough during this process but try not to let the engine stall.
  6. If the engine stalls, restart it, and continue cleaning the throttle throat until you see clean metal.
  7. Pour some fuel system cleaner into the gas tank and drive the car a little more before parking it. Try to find an excuse to accelerate hard, WIDE OPEN THROTTLE momentarily if safely possible (as when accelerating to merge into traffic on a highway).
  8. Drive back home.
  9. Done.

Starts but stalls right away

Have you checked your fuel pressure? Could be the fuel pressure regulator. Hard to say without a year and model of the jeep.

I have a yamaha 40etlg outboard that will run good at full throtle, but when I go back to slow speed, almost idle, it stalls, and is very hard to start. I can get it started and it will run wide open, but...

stalling at idle indicates a blockage in the idle circuits of the carby
fuel breaks down all of the rubber components ( hoses pumps etc( and e-mix fuels are worse) so it indicates that a blockage is in the small drilling or jets for the idle
take it in for a professional overhaul and adjustment

My honda activa doesnt have pick up. when i keep in choke it runs properly otherwise. i had given it for servicing they replaced airfilter but still it is not working properly

What your doing with that sissy queen bike, get a rat rod bobber or a 5150 hard knock

does your scooter makes a loud noise, then stalls when I'm riding it. What's happening?

You're flooding the engine out. Read the manual and break it in before doing full throttle runs. After the scooter has been properly broken in, you can accelerate to the speed you wish to ride, then back off of the throttle to maintain the speed. If you hold the throttle wide-open, it will flood the engine and stall the scooter which may cause damage.

1994 jeep grand cheeroke limited stalling

There is no such thing as a small fuel leak. Even if the car was running great, it is extremely dangerous. You can "section" the line using a small pipe cutter and brass compression fittings if you don't want to change the entire length (providing it's not really rusted. Most of, if not all your problems can definitely attributed to that leak.
