Ok so here is an update. First off I would like to just say im sorta a DUMBA$$. got the new computer and was like hey, that don't look like the one I have. Turns out I took out the "TCM" instead of the "PCM". Now I know the difference.
So put all the new parts in and hooked the battery up and she purred like a kitten, almost....... Only had time to let it run for about half hour and nothing went wrong at all. I renewed my AAA so I have towing before I take any nice long joyrides but I'm hopeful that this did the trick. Now before I said it "ALMOST" purred like a kitten here is what I mean. It started fine, but then started to idle a bit funny. I'm not good at explaining so I made a vid for those that want to look. It revs fromm 1G to about 500 and just keeps doing it. It does it sitting in gear, or in park. Drives just fine but the idle is funny and it never did that before the new computer. As you watch it seems like im pushing the gas but im not doing nothing but filming.
I'll test drive it more and update once more if the problem is truly solved. Next is the blend doors, that will be fun..........LMAO 12 pack and power tools, what could go wrong?
So any suggestions on the idle thing please let me know.
OK so took a joy ride tonight and no stalls...... YEAAAHHHHHHH
But now the idling is an issue. I was stopped and it was idling fine then ramped up to 2G (almost hit the person in front of me), pushed the brakes as hard as I could and then it just went back to normal. Came home and it idled weird off and on but never died. The 2G idle thing scared the poop outta me though.
yea I took a lot of stuff off so I'll look around tomorrow. So it sounds like a vacuum leak and not the new PCM? And I have starting fluid, where would I start spraying? I assume the vac lines are under the thing that says "4.7 L blaa blaa" around were I put the new idle sensor thing, right?
OK I need to go to bed.
Thanks again guys, I'm going to kick this problems a$$...... ;-)

Yeah, they connect to your throttle body, and one or two run all the way around and under your battery to the T-connector and connect to the vacuum thingy behind the passenger side headlight.
OK so I sprayed almost every hose and nothing happened. Also no codes thrown. I have been driving around town all day in it and it still idles funny but drives great, no more stalling. Looks like the computer did the trick. Maybe it just needs to relearn something????? Took it down to the 4x4 shop and they said drive it till next week and see if it gets better because with a code its gonna cost me.....lol
I'll keep this updated but not sure what to do know except put some more miles on it. Got the new stereo in so I don't mind crusin around the town...:-)
No I put a new one in. New tcm (if that is the part above the starter), IAC, map, and pcm. It's running good except the idle issue. Yesterday after driving on the interstate (and it was hot out) I exited and came to a light, it idled really rough like it wanted to die (so I put it in "N" so it didn't) and then came home. When I got home I sat in the garage in gear and it idled fine so I'm totally confused at this point.
I was working on the blend doors yesterday and the only thing I did was unhook the battery a few times and went I went to drive it guess what, no more idle issues. Runs like a top. But I did get some trouble codes (finally) and they are a P1195/1196 but I just replaced the 02 sensors not to long ago. Good thing they are under warranty so Ill just get some new ones but it looks like the jeep might be finally fixed, until the next issue.............LMFAO..............
