gauges going wild

My 1998 Cherokee is having intermittent stalling and no start. While running the tach starts flipping from 0 to 3000 RPM and back again. Then it dies. Sometimes it will start right away and other times not for awhile. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to this problem. Any suggestions? thanks

TPS sensor, dirty or bad IAC valve, PCM, ect. Possibly a torn up o2 sensor wire shorting stuff. Start with the cheap and easy stuff.

most likely the crank sensor. since it's only the tach going crazy and you have a stalling problem.

do you have a GRAND CHEROKEE, which this forum is for or a CHEROKEE?

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Exactly what mine did before I replaced the crank sensor. Use only a Mopar sensor. I went through 3 BDW sensors in 2 weeks before I learned that.
