1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Repair Question
Idle air control motor?
1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
I have been having this problem for a while now. When I am accelerating at a low speed (no faster than 40 MPH) or coming to a stop, the engine wants to shut off. I was thinking fuel pump but I was told that when they go out, it happens all at once, not gradually. The only other option I can think of is the idle air motor. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.
You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try cleaning the
throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold
the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the
throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and
some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes
next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If
it still has a problem, replace the IAC.
