1999 grand Cherokee limited w/ 200k miles sometimes idles…

Customer Question
1999 grand Cherokee limited...

1999 grand Cherokee limited w/ 200k miles sometimes idles too fast-may be OK one day then idles too fast the next. Idle control and several sensors have been replaced but it has gone back to doing it again and check engine light comes on

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

The light stays on until I take it to the shop a have it checked then it stays off for a couple of days then repeats- this has now repeated several times

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I'm not fixing it myself-this has been done at a non-dealer shop that has always found and fixed difficult problems in the past but this has him scrathinghis head
