98 jeep grand cherokee limited

I just got this jeep. When I rev it up and let off the gas the rpms will drop to 0 and cut off. I don't believe the battery is right so could it be I need a bigger battery or is it some thing else?

Re: 98 jeep grand cherokee limited

You are posting in the WK section, your jeep is a ZJ i believe.
Does it start normally and idle right? A bad battery or bad alternator can cause idle problems, but also a dirty IAC stepper motor (idle air control) or air canal.
