Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler

'99 Wrangler idles funny

My '99 Wrangler shakes and almost sputters when in neutral (say sitting at a light or something).
It doesn't sound or feel like its idling right.

What can cause this?
how do I fix it?

    I'm obviously no expert either.

    Any help on how to do that exactly? How to adjust?

    Yes, I have the same problem. Also, when i try to start i have to press the gas pedal in order for it to start. And if i don't keep applying the gas it will die. It goes back to normal if I keep running it for a few minutes.

Engine shakes when Idling/ Check Engine Light started blinking

i just fixed a similar problem on my van there is a rubber elbow on the end of the pvc hose that connects to the valve cover you can only buy the elbow with the hose and it costs about 100 bucks but i guess they have had to replace a lot of these because the new one looks twice has strong you just have to check and see if its collapsed in on itself preventing air movement or leaking the shop will charge you 175 dollars to fix it plus the part but it only takes 20 minutes good luck

Car is shaking, idles funny, feel like its running on 4cyl not 8

Hello lovnmymustang,

Thank you for choosing So, you're getting bad gas mileage, and getting a deep sound when you push the gas. Try these suggestions first:

1. Replace O2 sensors; have code cleared at auto parts store if it has come on (service engine light will come on)
2. Replace the fuel filter and the air filter
3. Change the spark plugs/wires/coil pack(s)(carborator if equipped and not coil pack(s) )
a. If coil pack is replaced, check the modular as well (sits under coil pack)
b. If carborated, replace cap and rotor
4. c. Regardless of a or b - change spark plugs and wires

In the main title above (my current page) it says 'car is shaking' - if this feels like it's in the steering, have a front end alignment checked (and performed) if needed. If it feels like the engine, do the above suggestions.

I hope this information aides in the successful repair of your Mustang. Please, let me know if there is anything more I can be of assistance to. Thank you again for choosing
