Normal idle rpm for 01 TJ 4.0 6cyl??

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me if 600-700 rpm is normal idle for my TJ? Seems to want to cut out once in a while.
TIA
Rick

That's a bit low, perhaps the TPS (throttle position sensor) is going south. Erratic idle is often a result of a bad TPS.

Thanks Jerry, you da man. My TJ died yesterday while driving. Had it towed home and discovered no fuel at the rail. Found a broken wire to the fuel pump and repaired it. Starts and runs okay but seems to idle low. I'll check that.
