Hello - glad to be on-board !

Hi everyone. I'm also glad to be a new member of this site. I have a 2000 Grand Cherokee Limited, 4.7. Had a rebuilt engine installed in Feb. and added a K&N intake. Lately I have been having problems with it and I am wondering if the intake is the cause. The check engine light comes on sporadically, and sometimes the engine RPM's will fluctuate when I come to a dead stop, then stall out. Also, when I pull out from a dead stop, I get something like a carberator flooding out kind of deal. I've had it to 2 different garages, and they both claim no codes are showing up. Has anyone else had this problem? And if so, did they rectify the problem? I am wondering if it may be a MAPS problem.
Hope someone can help me out on this. I do love my Jeep.

Hello mate and welcome!

Re: Hello - glad to be on-board !

clean your tb...be careful of the sensors. Check the tps sensor and pull any of the codes and let us know

Re: Hello - glad to be on-board !

Thanks for the welcome, especially from "down under".......Now to move on, what is a tb? Sorry guys, I am basically a "backyard" mechanic just trying to figure this out and like I said, 2 garages are claiming that no codes are showing up. I had a new tps installed last year, before the rebuilt engine was installed.

Re: Hello - glad to be on-board !

Does this year model 4.7 have an AFM (Air Flow Meter)?

Re: Hello - glad to be on-board !

Reason I ask if they have an AFM is its common for air filter oil to contaminate the sensing wire on "hot wire" type AF Meters.
9 times out of 10 it is a simple matter of cleaning the wire by just spraying the wire with carby cleaner or other solvent.
