Engine Problem: No CEL

Since i did my MML+BL my jeep will "sometimes" want to idle around 200 it does like a pulsating between 200-500 so i was thinging this may be some type of pump? other times it does fine.... it does kind of a whistley noise sometimes too... no cel and i have no idea... it is borderline choking to death so somehting is wrong, any of you guys have any ideas? im due for an oil change now if that means anything? maybe i pinched a line or somehting? i just wanna get this fixed, i hate roll'n onto campus about to die.

thats what mine has been doing with the weird idle thing. you can just watch the rpms bounce around down low. but when i take off it doesnt affect it at all. except sometimes ive noticed coming out of first into second it will have power and then none at all and it will almost sputter, push clutch back in and im good to go after that. weird.

still got this go'n on. i cant see any lines unhooked, maybe one's cracked? they dont look like theyd be cracked, but you never know... i was thinking of running some seafoam, you think that'd show my vaccum leak if that infact is the problem? it died on me for the first time today the idle got so low. ive even considered "taking it somewhere" and paying someone look at it....

I had a problem with the engine sputtering when cold. Check here:
http://www.wranglerforum.com/tj-chat...old-11218.html

My problem was fixed with a $3 throttle and intake body cleaner. I took out the IAC, cleaned it, and sprayed the heck out of the throttle body and IAC mount. No problems since then.

FIXED. i ended up taking it to a mechanic it got so bad....my TPS(2 months old btw....) was bad. but my main problem was a bad intake gasket...you know that $300 in labor header/intake thing? yea...i probly shoulda thown a new header on with that off had i known that was the culpret. (btw i know this guy, he didnt replace it to rip me off, i saw it and it was in horrible shape.) so got that, new belts, oil change while they had it up, + other maintence crap....$551.68 i coulda spend on something else.... it sickens me, but it was something that needed to be fixed.
