I have been having the same problem. 2000 Cherokee Sport. Ran fine till I decided to clean the IAC motor/valve, pretty carboned up. Since then it has been a pain. Runs OK cold, and at high RPMs. Once the engine gets warm and sits a bit, it wont idle. I am not sure what is going on. I bought a new one and it is a bit better, I have been using the new and old to try and determine if the original has gone bad.

Is there a way to test it? I hate throwing money at stuff to see if it may be the problem.
I am fighting an A/C compressor that is the same way. Starts good runs a bit and then shuts clutch disconnects. Low and High pressure switches seem to test good.. UUGGGGhhh. This Jeep is getting under my skin!!!!

#202 of 276 98 jeep cherokee low idle
Jul 05, 2010 (10:50 am)
Hey everyone im looking for some help with my 98 jeep Cherokee. i was parked and sitting and all of a sudden my Jeep went into this low idle, it had sounded like it had just got racing cams in it but clearly it didn't. So i popped my hood and listened to the motor and it just constantly sounds like it was sucking for air to stay on, what could be the problem?
#203 of 276 1996 Jeep Cherokee turns over but won't start- no spark
Aug 16, 2010 (11:35 am)
I have a 1996 Cherokee Sport with a 4.0 L engine. Car was running fine one moment then when I went to start it 20 minutes later it just turned over but wouldnít kick in. No spark. So far Iíve change the crankshaft position sensor, the Powertrain control module (or ECM) with one from a reputable junk yard, the coil checked o.k. after I took it out and had it checked; the rotor cap appears fine. I donít hear the fuel pump kick in like I believe I should when I turn the key on. Another thing I noticed that I donít recall hearing before is the electric cooling fan runs when I turn the key on, which I thought is odd, since the engineís cold. I checked the relays in the engine compartment and they all seem to be fine? Any thoughts? I think the only way I can check the PCM is to find someone with the same vehicle and swap out and see if their car runs, unless some has another idea.
#204 of 276 1996 Jeep Cherokee

I've got a 1996 Jeep Cherokee, runs alright but here lately mainly going up mountains it will just quit, had it out yesterday and it quit twice. Went out this morning to take a look at it to see if I could see anything wrong with it and now it wont start. Tried a new starter and still nothing! What should I look for?
