My 2006 Jeep Commander 5.7l, 4x4 limited stalls intermitently. Usually happens at low RPM. In P, R, N idles fine. Once in drive is when it happens. Usually after backing out of a parking space, or when approaching a stop sign/light. Always happens at low speed. If I see it happen and can safely accelerate it will go with slight hesitation in the begining and then smooth out. Does not happen every day, however it happens at least twice a week. It does not matter what the weather is or temp. It has been brought in numerouse times and had computer flashes and checked. Jeep can not replicate the problem. Please help me!

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.
