have a 1996 jeep cheerokee sport 4.0 thats starting running fine then when idle it dies
yes, I'd look at the IAT sensor....does okay cold but snuffles when it comes up to temp? this goodie~ https://www.google.com/#q=1996+Jeep+Cherokee+IAT+sensor
https://www.google.com/#q=1996+jeep+cherokee+idle+air+control+valve the idle air control would be my first suspect~
right now all it does is turn over and over and wont start and smells like its choking itself with gas when cranking it
Is the check eng. light on? if you smell raw fuel, that means the is no fire. Poss. coil or coil wire. These will corrode at ends or burn internally. You can use a plug wire off another vech. to test for bad coil wire. Plugs could also be fouled due to bad IAC. When you HOLD gas pedal to the floor when cranking eng. It shuts off the fuel to give you the ability to clear out a flooded condition. You should pull a plug and insp. Sometimes when battery is disconnected, they dont want to idle. You need to keep throttle cracked untill it relearns its idle. Start off like a high idle for a couple of minutes and ever so slowly let it come down to idle. You may have to do this a couple of times. Hope this helps.....
yes....the IAT sensor would do this~
Have your ignition switch brain box under the dash on drivers side connected to steering column checked Auto Zone can check it or the main brain you, have three brains on a Jeep
Check coil censor
