Yes it makes sense. The Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve is on the intake manifold passenger side by the carburetor.

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

I am looking for the EGR valve on my 1995 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L four-cylinder. I suspect someone before me removed the factory manifold and put in one that was not controlled by EGR. If I truly don't have...

This process lowers the peak combustion temperature and helps combat the formation of Nitrous Oxide (NOx) in the exhaust.

  1. Step 1 Separate the intake ducts from the air cleaner assembly by loosening the retaining clamps and pulling the ducts away from the housing.
  2. Step 2 Disconnect the vacuum line from the air cleaner assembly.
  3. Step 3 Remove the wing nut that secures the air cleaner housing lid to the base.

92 Jeep Wrangler will not Stay running.


I had the same prblm with my 1989 Jeep, 6 cyl straight, and it was because of the EGR valve, easy to replace and not too costly. EGR valve is screwed on the motor, driver side, and there is a ±1/2" rubber hose attached. Easy to see if device comes apart, cut by rust.
