2008 Grand Cherokee 4.7 resting idol concern
 
I have a 2008 grand cherokee with 77000. The idol has started to become a concern. At times the idol drops below 500 and almost seens to stall than kicka up. Otherwise it idols around 600 - 800 rpm. And when im braking and very close to a complete stop I get a hesitational jitter feel. Almost feels like the brakes catch and release slightly but I kniw thats not thw problem. Its just the beat way to explain the experience. Anyone with knowledge or experiencs with this please give me some insight. Thank you

The throttle position sensor is VERY common on the 4.7l motor causing many symptoms, one of which is a surging, or searching idle.

IIRC there is also a pcm update for some of the wk's, I think it bumps the idle speed up a bit too. You would ultimately have to go to the dealer to have that checked though.

I had the PCM update done on my jeep. when I first bought it I had a random idle stalling problem but it went away when I had the update done. that was over 4 years ago and it has been perfect since then

Im at the dealership now. I discussed this with the advisor. I will give an update soon. Thanks again for the insight. Any other ideas. What is the usual cost of these sort of inpsectuins/repairs so I dont get surprised.
