RUNS ROUGH AFTER START

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee • V8 4WD Automatic • 130,000 miles

After you fire the motor up it runs good then after a few min. It starts to run rough at idle. You can run it uo then it smooths out and runs down the freeway good but when you let it idle it stalls. It has a new CAT a press. Reg. New, and was suposed to have just been tuned up and the shop said it needed a new CAT was needed an that was why it ran rough. After changing the CAT an still haven this issue would the EGR cause this issue. Thanks Ron

A partially plugged or eger or passage can cause rough running. Or the egr staying open. Scan for codes and check fuel pressure and clean throttle plate and iac hole with choke cleaner.
