I have a 98 Jeep Cherokee. For awhile now it has been taking 2 attempts to start the vehicle every time I start it. If I turn the key on three times and then start it, it starts fine. Just today I started it after coming out of the store and it started revving 3000 RPM's. It revs at about 1300 while I am at a light or stop sign. My drive way is an incline and I dont even have to push the gas to get up the hill its revving so high. I thought with the initial problem it might be a leak in the fuel system causing it to loose prime. Dont even know if thats an option or not. Not sure if that is the way these fuel systems work. I am very aggravated with my Jeep right now. Although it is the most satisfying vehicle I have ever owned. I love my Jeep and My wife also has a 01 Cherokee and she has said that hers has done the same thing on attempting to start on occasion. Please someone help. Its an every day driver. I need it fixed. Confused

I would clean the IAC on both Jeeps. They get dirty and have to be cleaned occasionally!

There is a Jeep Horizons Google search at the bottom of every page, it's very useful! Wink You can search the forum or the web.

I had the same problem once and all I had to do was tap on the tps with the handle of a ratchet. HTH
