Why does my jeep not stay running? I had the throttle body replaced about 4 months ago. I start the jeep up but it wount stay running unless I keep my foot on the gas. When driving I have to use the brake and the gas at the same time. I filled up the gas tank and tried a can of sea foam figuring maybe I had a blockage in the fuel system but it still wont stay running!

It may be the IAC, You might try removing and cleaning it. Before you just, "UP and REPLACE IT"

It's an EZ item to remove, it controls the Air, not the Fuel, needed to idle.

I do have some Pics of my Wife's Ford Escape IAC, it is similar to yours. Would get the idea across anyway. Let me know if you want to see them.

Let me hear some good news!
