Hello all,

I used to have a problem with my cherokee being sluggish (stalls, and jerks between gears) but after conferring with you fellas, I cleaned my intake and changed my TPS sensor.

The problem went away for about a year. Now the problem is back again(stalls, and jerks between gears), so I cleaned the intake manifold once more (it was surprisingly filthy). I didn't take the TPS apart, but reached in with my intake cleaner until I could not see dirt coming out anymore.

Now the car is much better, but now the car tends to stall on first shifting in to first gear. Idle is normal, but whenever I try to just start going, it would want to stall out. So I would just over-rev it on first, and that avoids stalling at every other traffic light.

I looked at my cleaner, and it says that its not for plastics, my guess is that the TPS sensor might have been damaged by the cleaner. What do you think guys? Should I replace the sensor once again (is there something else that might have been damaged by the cleaner?) ?
