Wj dies when ideling in trafic

I just got a new problem. Two times today I was in heavy traffic and when the traffic stopped completely and the wj was ideling it stoped. After putting it in park I turned it off and on and the problem was gone. It also happend one more time when ideling. I scanned it with an ultra gauge, but did not get any fault codes. It does not happen all the time. Its very windy today and about -3 C så the cold should not be a problem

Crankcase position sensor & or camshaft position sensor. Both are a pain to replace but fairly cheap. Should cure your woes

Is it hard to locate them or is it labour intensive to do the job ?
When it gets worse, will it also die when driving ?

Not hard to locate just a pain to get at, & yes it WILl start to die while driving. I fixed my 4.7 for about $55 plus about 2 hours of knuckle busting.

Try cleaning your throttle body and IAC before you start throwing money around. My WJ had this problem and in about 10 minutes my WJ was idling perfectly again. Very simple job

Also, please post your year and engine size. Some may not be able to see it on mobile.

Read the TSB on heat soak as well (if it's a 4.0)

Anybody knows what happens when it dies at highway speeds ? Does the power steering still works ? Does the brakes work like normal ?

Update. The TPS and IAC arrived first. Changed them, but the problem was still there. Have now changed the crank and camshaft position sensors and the problems seems to have gone away

Yes, no, no. It will be easy to steer due to the wheels are spinning, but braking will be difficult.
