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.

V6 doesn't have egr. Could be plugs coils. Seafoam it!

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.

3.7*

500 or 600 I think.

ya sorry 3.7... well 600 sounds right because when it gets to 500 it starts shaking. idk when the last time plugs have been put in to the jeep would that 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.
