Interesting and cleaning this will help smooth the idle? Mine sounds like it's got a jumpy idle but the tac doesn't move much. Also the 4.0s do not have a mass flow air sensor does it?

Nope, it has a MAP sensor: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/ma...ensor-1063614/

I'm still waiting for the call that my gasket came in. They said it would only take a couple of hours to get.

Well I finally got the time. I didn't notice a huge difference in the idle but it wasn't to bad either.

Good evening all. I've been having light throttle jerkiness on my 98 manual 4.0 TJ (170,000 km), no problem with full throttle.

This jerking was driving me nuts. Noticed slight crack in dizzy cap, so changed that + rotor arm, HT leads, plugs, coil.
Still the problem remained..

I went to the dealer (not to get my pockets picked LOL..) to see if they could check the diagnostics as had been having intermittent 'check engine' light. No codes. Mechanic says maybe the IACV needs replacing but no stock & not really sure without fault codes.., so start with changing that & if no better do the same with the TPS. (pocket emptying dealer mode..).
Didn't change anything, just parked it up as only use it in the desert once or twice a month. Next drive (a week later), no jerkiness, problem 'solved', but as I didn't know what had been wrong before.., was concerned if it happened again how to diagnose..

Now that moment has come again..., I've read all of this excellent thread & plan to attack the TB, TPS, IACV etc with TB cleaner as it seems the problem is rooted there..

I also wondered if a dirty injector or two had somehow 'coughed' & cleared their throats, but this thread seems to point to the TB & associated sensors..

I removed the TB the other day but hadn't read this thread at that point & the inside of the TB didn't seem dirty. However I did note the inside of the intake manifold below the TB was heavily carboned..., what is best to clean that & should it make much difference?

When cleaning the TB, does it help to use any metal polish on the TB throat after/before using TB cleaner?

Is everyone using WD40 or similar on the sensor electrical connections?

Any other advice appreciated as driving on soft sand with a needed light right foot at times is damn tricky with jerky power delivery!!

Thanks in advance! :-)

Update.

I have changed the TB with a used one & all now is good! Havn't found any TB cleaner so that seemed worth trying!

On my 2006 tj 4.0, can I just unscrew the 1 screw on the map sensor and then remove the rubber hose? I also see throttle position sensor has 2 screws which is on the back side facing the firewall on the tb. Can i also just remove those screws and pop it off. thanks
