Rough Idle

I started the Jeep the other morning and all was fine and then after approx two min. The idle dropped to approx 200 rpm and the jeep started to skake and the CEL came on> I shut the jeep down and restarted it al was ok except that the CEL was still on. After approx 8 starts the CEL whent out on its own. I had just filled up with gas before this started. Any Ideas??

if it happens again, do the on-off, on-off, on-off thing and check which codes were thrown. that will be a good hint as to what it "might" be. other than that, there are way too many things that it could be. try a search for the subject. there is a huge amount of stuff on this site about it, since that is a common occurence.
