Hello All,
Thank you for your time. 1998 Grand Cherokee will not start unless I depress the gas. Will start, but will not stay running unless I hold the accelerator. Any Ideas??

Idle air passage blocked / idle air motor/valve broken?

I removed the air intake hose and sprayed Carb cleaner in throttle valve, also added fuel system cleaner in Fuel Tank and the problem seems to have been corrected. Would this have cleared that passage? Thank you very much for your response? Very Happy

Yes, the carb cleaner probably cleared the blockage (the idle air passage is basically a "bypass" past the throttle valve).

Regards,
