Yay, having the stalling issue :)

So the jeep has been stalling, mostly when I come to a complete stop, it is a random occurrence, I have replaced the TPS already. Why doesnt the dealer want to troubleshoot? if it doesnt throw a code they dont believe you. It makes me think they dont know how to troubleshoot properly.

Recommend you provide the symptoms list to them to help diagnose the intermittent problem:
Date, mileage, car status (hwy, stopped, etc), codes, abnormal readings or sounds. Keep as a logbook so they can see a trend.

This kind of problem is a chance diagnosis unless they hit it just right....or you provide some detailed input. StarScan can only diagnose parameters out-of-spec; without codes, it's a witch hunt.

This is exactly what I did until we finally got it sorted out (on their nickel because I had the ongoing documentation of an unresolved warrranty issue).

Service interval depends on how you use it and the model year.

General service here: http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_maintenance.htm#TRANS

Specific 2005 service intervals here: http://www.wkjeeps.com/Manuals/2005_...d_Cherokee.pdf

Other models years also available at same site (e.g., 2006).
