Question:

I was just cleaning this on my 2000XJ and broke the gasket on the IAC body. I made a new one from gasket material, but where can I buy an actual one??
Thanks

I would assume the dealer would be able to at least order one for you. It shouldn't be but about a few bucks... theoretically.

Rough Idle

Thanks for the great detail. I have an 88 XJ with rough idle in gear and it likes to stall at stop lights, going to do a good cleaning this weekend.

Is it carb or FI? My old carbed YJ had the same stop light problem, google search found a good write up on how to do a quick clean by pulling the venturi cluster and that solved the problem.

88 XJ has a 4.0 and is fuel injected. 1987+ was injected.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I guess my YJ was just a little behind the curve w/ the old carbed 4.2.

I know you can use rtv for the IAC housing, but do you need to use rtv when you re-mount the TB?
ps. great write up thanx

Yea the YJ was a little behind but the 4.2 was a great motor either way. You dont use RTV between the TB and manifold. Get the TB gasket from your local parts store. Costs only 3-4 bucks.

My 2.4 started stalling occasionally when coming to a stop a few months ago, and this past week has started stumbling when I take off from a stop... I'm going to be optimistic and hope this is all it needs...

When did it get its last tune up? This is not a fix for everything but doesnt hurt to do.
