Re: geting my jeep tomorrow but need help?

How many miles?

Idle issues/stalling can be any number of issues. I'd search the site on that and see what you come up with. Anything from PCV valve, transmission fluid fill level, EGR valve, and on...

Check this on the tuneup.

Re: geting my jeep tomorrow but need help?

No big deal. A $70 fuel system service will solve that. Or just do it yourself. Me…I'd pay to have it done.

Search for seafoam on here. I just take mine in to Firestone for a fuel system service. Almost 100,000 miles on my WK and I've only had to do it twice.

Re: geting my jeep tomorrow but need help?

Re: geting my jeep tomorrow but need help?

I don't think so. That's called misfire.

It's just a simple fuel system service. That's all it needs.

Change the spark plugs anyway since you don't know when they were last changed.
