I am stuck I checked to see if there might be any loose wires but everything is snug. I just bought the jeep about a month ago and hasent had any issues tell now I was wondering if you were Abel to figure out what was causing it to shut off on you any suggestions would be great.. thanks in advance.
My 98 Dakota does that. A mechanic told me that the computer has to relearn everything like idle, WOT, etc. Feather the gas, find a sweet spot so you can drive it, hold brake and keep it revved enough to stay running, etc. It takes about 30 miles to relearn all its parameters. Be sure to stop, start back off, punch it to the floor a couple times and it will start getting smoother and smoother as you go.
