Re: another one stalling

I appreciate the reply's,,, I believe it to be the throttle body now. I Have had the Jeep for a few months now, and the plugs that were in it were iridium plugs. I had no problems with jeep while they have been in there. As for the wiring harness, I have tried wiggling nearly every part of it that could reach while it was running with no change. When the engine stalls out the oil light and throttle light are the only lights come on and tach shows no engine speed. The vehicle has over 120k miles on it now, and i am very aware that parts wear out. So with all things considered, something has worn out. Again, I thank everyone that has helped out. Once I have tried the throttle body I will post back with results.

Re: another one stalling

Okay,,, So after a couple of hours of screwing with it,, no change. The throttle body is not the problem. I would like to know if there is a safety built into the oil pressure sensor circuit that will cut the motor off if sense's a low pressure? I am noticing that oil and engine light as well as the throttle light is coming on when it does stalling trick. Any info on that will be great. Thanks.

Re: another one stalling

Vipper, go to the "other" Jeep Forum and read up on the 07 stalling problem. The problem described there is not due to airflow or oil pressure or fuel flow. It is a case of the motor immediately dying, and the only remaining culprit is the electrical buss.

Most had no symptoms until they reach roughly 50k miles or more. Then, something triggers it, very often the wrong plugs. After that, they can stall several times a day, then go for many thousand miles without a problem--then the problem comes back on its own.

My own personal experience with my 2010 is that the electrical systems are hopelessly frail. So while I have no stalling issues I can accept that the stalling described in that forum is electrically-related.

Good luck to you. If it was me, I would focus on a labor-intensive approach that held the cost of parts down.

Re: another one stalling

Thank you John. I have read many other posts. In other places as well. I came here because there seems to be more current responses than the other places. I have done all labor myself. I do not agreed with other people doing the work I am capable of doing. As far as the electrical bus is concered, do have any direction or knoweldge of where I should start with this search? I appreciate the time you all have givin me.

Re: another one stalling

Well everyone, it has been a few weeks of fighting with the beast. I still have no answer for my problem. It is still cutting out when I drive or when idling. I can hardly get it moving. I wont drive it right now. There is a long list of things that I have done to try to fix it, the only thing I have figured out is a bunch of things that are not the problem. I am running out of sanity to continue on with this fight. So if any one has any logical possibilties I am all ears at this point. If I must write out all the things that I have done will. Thank you all for time and effort.

Re: another one stalling

Well everyone, I gave in and took it back to where I got at. The people were very kind, and done what they could to make it right. They had me bring it to them and they took it to a chrysler dealership. What really surprises me, is that it seems to be a coil pack. I have it back now and it seems to be running right. I'll give it some time and see if has taken care of my problem. I would like to thank everyone for the time, and help offered. I hope everyone has a good one.
