Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you! This can be caused by 1 a vacuum leak (split line/hose, etc. 2 a sluggish Idle air control motor, or 3 a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) that is failing and telling the PCM (engine computer) that the throttle is open more than it really is. Which engine do you have in your Comanche?

Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 3 years ago
Ok, thanks. I do see issues with the TPS on these engines, and if you find no vacuum leaks, I recommend replacing it first. If the problem continues, then replace the Idle Air Control motor. Both are mounted on the throttle body. If you need the procedure on how to replace the TPS, let me know and I will send it to you.
