I have a '99 a started having the exact same problems in the last month -- trans not disengaging at stops and coming out of gear and stalling on the highway, only to start back up again when I pump the gas. No idea what is going on. I'm going to contact my dealer and see if they know what it could be. If you figure it out before I do, I appreciate you sharing the diagnosis...I'll do the same.

Hello. I'm having the same problem. Do you suggest changing the relay first. If so where is it located.

Front/Rear Oxygen Sensors
Checked Fuel pressure on the rail
changed fuel filter
changed water pump
cleaned out throttle body
checked idle control motor relay it's still in decent working order.
I've heard someting about MAP sensors which have shaken loose of thier contacts and need to be soldered back.
Could the Idle Control Motor be bad and stall the car out only sometimes, and only when coming to a stop, idling, or in park, and twice while driving and letting go of the accelerator.
I've also heard the Vehicle-speed sensor could be the cause of the problem... guys I LOVE MY JEEP, and I've put a lot of money into it, but I never could have imagined it was going to bring me such heartache. Anyone who's fixed this problem please help me. Please let me know, I'm 19, a restaurant manager, Just getting used to adult life, and now this has been the month from H*ll. Please help guys, I need this car for work, everyday. I can't fail, and Miami public transportation has to be the worst in the WORLD.....
PLEASEEEE my mechanic watched my car stalll out on him right in front of him, while in park, and he told me theres nothing wrong with the car, because there is no code on the computer......

Well let me add to the 2005 LGC Tranny problems. I had the shuddering problem 3 days after I leased the truck, took it in for the TSB that stated to flush out the tranny to remove the moisture from inside. PIcked it up the next day, drove it home, had to take it back for the same problem once again. So I have less than 700 miles on it, and already I have gone in twice for the same issue. Completely unacceptable. Now the Service Manager told me they are going to drop the transmission and do a full overhaul on it to ensure all moisture is removed and to perform a thorough eval to make sure nothing else was damaged inside. I already called Chrysler Jeep and reported my issue so that there is a history. I am patiently waiting the outcome, the deal has been great though. They provided a FREE rental car which is the least they can do in my eyes.

I have a 1997 JGC Laredo 4.0, optional 4x4, inline 6, automatic with 120,000 miles and I am having trouble with stalling also.
This is what happens:
1. Put key into ignition and turn to start...starts fine
2. I check the dashboard monitor, no lights, and all gauges are normal (temp just under 210)
3. Apply foot to brake and shift from Park to either Drive or Reverse.
4. Car stalls
Car will remain remain running in Park without problems, but IMMEDIATELY shuts off when I attempt to shift from Park to another gear. I live in Wisconsin and it is 88 degrees today and the vehicle was sitting in the sun. There is a slight coolant leak but the overflow still has coolant. I tried 4 or 5 times with the same result. I then waited 30 minutes and the car started and ran fine. Does anyone know what the problem may be? I called my mechanic and he told me it could just be very overheated from my errands but the temperature gauge was showing normal. Thanks much in advance.

I took my GCL with the Hemi to the dealer with the TSB in hand and they told me that it does not apply to my transmission. They said it was for the 300C not Jeep. I am still having the same problems of the shuddering but it seems to be getting worse. I now have 1700 miles. This vehicle is the worst piece of junk I've ever driven.
#1364 of 5143 What's a JEEP lover to do???!!!!
Jun 10, 2005 (10:10 pm)
I posted a couple times on my jeep stalling for no reason, it stalls in park, it stalls in neutral, it stalls at idle, it stalls while driving on the highway. And it's whenever it wants to. totally random.....i thought it was an idle problem, but twice it's stalled while driving...
should I just take the bus?? and give up my jeep for good...I love it to death and I know there's a definite reason for it....something small and loose, some sensor not working correctly, a malfunctioning something or other, but I've spent $400 in the last week to not have it fixed......
Miami busses suck....
What's a Jeep lover to do?

I have posted about my Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Hemi bucking and stumbling many times. Has Chrysler Jeep fixed any of the others that posted the same problem? I've read many complaints, but never see anyone say they fixed it. If you have success please post so we can get ours fixed!!!! Anyone at all!!!!

When I start our Jeep it rev's up really fast and idle's fast until we put it in gear. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Also, when we are traveling down the road with our cruise control on at 60 mph, the engine RPM will be at 1800 and then it will surge up to 2000 and then back down to 1800. It does this quite often. Does anyone know what would be causing this?
