I have a new issue...
I have a new issue. My 96 Grand Cherokee Limited is having an intermittent stalling issue. When vehicle starts everything seems fine sitting in park and driving. After about 5-7 minutes of driving i'll come to a stop with my foot on the brake and the idle will drop to about half compared to when in park or neutral. This is when I have the intermittent stalling. I changed the Idle air control valve (very dirty), TPS, and cleaned the throttle body. I even swapped out the PCM with one from pick and pull. Same issue. Is there another sensor I should look at that would affect the idle at a stop? Crank sensor? Worked with Chris (aka-Moose) on a previous issue.

Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

Is it a 4.0? Engine light? Any codes?

It's the 8 cylinder (5.2?), no engine lights, no codes.

I'd start with the crank sensor...and if that does not fix it monitor fuel pressure with a gauge

That's where I was going before I sent the question. I think I'll change out the fuel filter while I'm at it. For the crank I will take it to a shop the end of the week to have the work done. I'll let you know how it goes next weekend.

Great best of luck with her...any follow into needed just respond here...
