MAF sensor

Question is "where is it at"? Do they even have one on the 4.0L's? I am suffering from poor mileage and figured I'd start with the basics. Changed plugs, cleaned filter, etc. I know that they recommend cleaning the MAF sensor but I can't seem to find it on the Jeep. Any suggestions? Only thing I've come across is the Idle air control valve.

there is no MAF on any jeep, except maybe the new motors(3.7/5.7 hemi) im not sure about them. but on any jeep 05 and down there are no MAF sensors. if your getting crappy mileage, welcome to Jeeps. best thing to do is to check for codes, see if one of your O2 sensors is acting up or something.

No, but there is a MAP sensor, TPS sensor.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Is your check engine light on? If so with vehicle off and turn key to run position and then off three times in a row ending in the run position and watch your odometer for the codes stored. a bad O2 sensor will make it run extremelly rich and get around 5.2 miles per gallon!

How do you clean the IAC valve? Can you clean it with the MAF sensor cleaner? Where exactally is it located on the 4.0L?

It's on the back of the throttle body. Not positive, but I bet you have a MAP sensor, instead of MAF.... pressure rather than flow. Map is on drivers side of throttle body.
Search terms IAC and clean. Someone did a great write up with pics. That should help.

yes there is a MAP sensor on it, on the throttle body like ^ said. if you want better mileage i would change more than just the plugs, go ahead and replace the coil, and the plug wires, also the dist cap and rotor. its a good investment
