Yup they did. After installing a new PCM, harness, new coils and some other stuff. They tried everything and the foil is what did it! Craziness

I thought they did the coils and foil at the same time and it was not known what one fixed it?

Re: Just shuts off?

Dealer thinks I should start with OEM plugs ( we just put Champion 570;s in) and then if it stalls again buy new coil and start swapping it around to find a faulty one. So basically cant diagnose the problem.

Re: Just shuts off?

The coils and foil was done at the same time. They did the coils first and it stalled, then they added the foil and no more stall.

I forgot to mention I got new plugs too and that wasn't the problem either! Most of this stuff is covered under emissions act cuz it has to deal with the whole PCM

I highly suggest you tell them about the foil thing! Im serious as funny as it sounds!

Re: Just shuts off?

Hey I am new here and am having the same issue, Jeep Coop I think you might be on to something I hope. Please post some more detailed pics of where to place the foil, Thanks.

Re: Just shuts off?

I ended up making some foil 'tape' by folding sheets of aluminum foil into about a 2" width, then wrapped my wiring harness near the rearmost coil packs on the passenger side. Secured with a few wraps of mechanics wire. Has been two weeks almost without a stall- knock on wood...
