99 GJ 4.7 will not stay running and pings when try to accelerate slow

Put all new sensors and rebuild motor but won't stay running when idles drops below 1000 rpm. When I shift in gear it will stay runing but up and down at idles, when tries to accelerate it backfires and pings hard like a bad flow meter. Disconnected the Cat.Con. and no change. Vacuum is good and all new parts but still doesn't want to run right, my mechanic told me he crossed the battery cable when he put the battery in, would that cause any damage to the PCM or other controll units. Anybody out there that can help, I don't know what to do next. Thanks

Re: 99 GJ 4.7 will not stay running and pings when try to accelerate slow

the codes keeps coming up that 3and4 cyl.are mis firing. When accelerates to about 1500-2000 rpm you can feel the misfire, but when you let off the throttle the engine comes down to idle mode and runs pretty good for about 10 seconds the shuts off. But when I put it gear the engine will stay idle and diesels up and down.

I was just thinking that. Have you already replaced these sensors?

Re: 99 GJ 4.7 will not stay running and pings when try to accelerate slow

Idling problems many times are caused by the IAC stepper motor pintle or air passage, which gets dirty with oil and dust particles.
If the mechanic who installed the battery, also did the engine rebuild, i would cross my fingers...........................and first of all change to an other one
Is the engine completely rebuild and do you know why this was done?
A misfire is detected by the PCM by a small deceleration. This can be caused by ignition problem, fuel supply problem (fuel injector) or low compression in related cylinder(s).

If it's in those 2 cylinders (3 &4) make sure the coils and/or fuel injectors wires haven't been swapped during install. Pull and check your spark plugs in those cylinders if wires are correct.

Isn't coil 3 on the left bank and coil 4 on the right bank?

I decided to check the voltage on the crankshaft and it only shows .50 volts not even close to what it supposed to be at 5.0 volts. So I send the PCM out to be check and repair, hopefully this will solve the problem, I will let you know what happens.
