Idle Problem

Need some help here...

I have an eratic idle problem, sometimes my Jeep will just decide to idle up to approx. 1500 or 1600 rpm. If I shut off the engine the idle drops back to normal, but if I dont it stays there...

No engine lights or anything abnormal.

Any suggestions???

Thanks
JP

Check the self diagnostic codes. Sounds like it could be AIS (Automatic Idle Speed) controller.

Yes check the codes. That can be caused by a air idle solonoid or throttle position sensor...usually.

the IAC usually doesnt fail, its usually one of the sensors that gives input to the ECM that controls the IAC. MAP, TPS, ECT are gonna be the main ones. A vacuum leak is also a slight possibility. However, like previously stated, my money is on TPS

The common problem with the AIS is that carbon will build up on the cone and cone seat causing erratic idle problems.
