I have another few questions. Can the throttle positron sensor make the jeep Idle rough it's only doing it in park. Once I put it into drive it smoothes out. But when I take off its kinda sluggish. Other question is when I accelerate decent it almost smells like rotten eggs. Any clue what could cause that?

Re: Newbei needs help please!

I had the same issue with my '00 grand 4.0, and i went through what is called "the list", which is crank sensor, tps, cam sensor, coil packs, super cleaned the throttle body and idle air control module (attached to the throttle body), and mine still shakes a little at idle. Each step made it a little better, but i haven't run a scan to see the fuel/air mix ratio. Maybe the map sensor or o2 sensors?

Rotten egg smell from the exhaust could mean a bad catalytic converter, bad fuel pressure regulator, or engine running too hot
