2005 GC stalling after start only...

I apologize if you've seen this post in other locations. I am knew to the forum but, have been experiencing this problem for 3 months and am ready to have it resolved.. I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee Full Time 4WD with 3.7 L Engine purchased used with 116k miles. After starting the engine in driveway, parking lot, wherever, the it loses power but continues running. Tapping the gas does not help. I either put it in neutral or park and just wait it out. This problem does not happen while driving but only just after starting. The fuel system has been serviced, EGR valve replaced, and a tune up has been completed. The dealer performed the ignition recall and the problem continues. A second dealer ran a diagnostic check and could not find any problems. The check engine light does not indicate and problems. If anyone has experienced or knows of someone that has experienced this problem, please advise. Thanks.

Re: 2005 GC stalling after start only...

id look into the fuel pressure regulator and if that's not it then turn to the fuel pump. sounds like a fuel pressure/fueling issue upon start up.

does it only do it on cold starts or on every start up even when warm? the answer to that could lead do a lazy or bad front o2 sensors, however o2's would show up on a DTC report.

again, welcome to the garage and its a pleasure to see another 3.7 member here

I experience this problem at different temperature. It might not do it all day long then do it once. Some days it will do it 2-5 times. Again, it only does this right after starting. Starts fine, back out of parking spot, stalls. Starts fine, move forward to pull out of driveway, stalls. Thanks for all the feedback.
Also, another problem with shifting. Often doesn't shift until RPMs are above 3500 to 4000. Often I just use the "sport shift". Any advice. Another intermittent problem. 117,000 miles. Filter and fluid changed to try and remedy this problem already.

Sounds like a fueling problem. Now as for the higher shifts that is likely due to the power loss your experiencing as the trans is trying to keep the motor in the power band. Mine did that with bad fuel in it and went away after a few fresh tanks

Did you have all of your service done at dealer? Reason I ask is because I have same year and motor and mine does not have an egr. It has a map, but no egr. Just curious if I am mistaken.

Your correct in the egr. That didn't appear on the 3.7 until mid 2007 when they started going to electronic throttle control and a few other changes in the 3.7
