I did this procedure and my rough running problems went away, for awhile. I'm assuming it was the fact I had cleared the computer by removing battery during this procedure. A few weeks later my problems returned and I traced it down to a cam position sensor and either a short or loose connection int he wiring harness. I have been good for about 2 weeks now but I do know this procedure was long overdue and helped in my process of elimination in troubleshooting my issues.

Jeep Forum is so good, I didnt even need a responce!!!!!

Like I said, the head to the "push pin" on the IAC fell off. I took off the throttle body and it was inside the IAC housing.Cleaned the balls out of the throttle body, screwed the little bad boy back in, slapped it on and WAHLAA!!! Smooth idle below 500rpms. Im hoping that will last after I take it for a test.
Thank you jeep forum. I love You.

subscribed - and great write-up.

Can anyone tell me how many and which gaskets are needed? Can they be found at any autoparts store?

TIA

I just did mine yesterday. On my 05, the only gasket I needed to replace was the main base gasket. There were no other gaskets on my TB.

I have a spacer on my mine so I needed 2. I got them from Autozone for $1.99 a piece.

Hey thanks for the info! I hadn't quite got to this yet but hoping to this weekend. Mine has a spacer as well, I am thinking about removing it.
