Check air filter first, then replace fuel filter if it has not been done recently and adjust idle speed. check fluid levels while you are under there.

Stalls after start up, Stalls when braking, then runs fine after a few minutes


Check the ECU engine temperature sensor. If it thinks the engine is hot, it will struggle to run when cold.

Why is my 2001 Jeep Wrangler stalling when I slow down or stop at a light/stop sign?


check that the brake booster is not leaking vacuum when you have your foot on the brakes and upsetting the air /fuel mixture at idle. When coming to a stop use the hand brake to stop the car and if it keeps idling ok then it will be the booster.

It dies when I hit the brakes, unless I put it in neutral, then dies when I put it in drive (its an automatic).


Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
