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.
Thank you for the helpful images my unit was way overdue at 144k, it took a toothbrush and a lot of cleaning fluid to remove all of the gummy oily residue it now looks like new and idles great your help is appreciated..
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.
Can anyone tell me how many and which gaskets are needed? Can they be found at any autoparts store?
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.
