Idle problem

Well after my woman folk dropped me off at the airport the jeep died on her. she coasted into a gas station and her dad came down and decided to check the bat. and alt. I guess bout were bad so he replaced them. Now for some reason its idleing under 500 rps which I think is a little low. Can anyone help me.
Thanks
Greg

This has been covered a lot, so there are tons of threads. Check your air idle control. It's located at the back of your intake. Had been having the same trouble for a couple of years, then all the sudden it wouldn't run at all. I replaced the IAC & works perfect now.

Thanks. Sounds like I should just take off the hole TB and clean it. Plus I think cleaning things in 10 degree weather is best done inside.

Once again I am amazed that no one found time to reply to my honest tech question, but some how there are 40 responses to "should i tint my tail lights?" I am, to say the least, disappointed. Due to the lack of response, I just put the throttle body back on with a new gasket and it seems to be running very well, with the exception of a ticking sound from the passenger side. I am not sure if it was there before the operation and it isnt loud so I am not too concerned. Just wondering if this is normal.
