TJ Idling Bad

I have a 97 Se with the 2.5. It has 131,000 miles. This morning while driving to work when coming to a stop sign the tach will drop below 1,000 Rpm's and bounces alittle bit and dash lights dim not real bad but alittle bit. Any ideas?

check the vacume lines it's a fairly common problem. One may have come loose of a crack in one.

A buddy came over to help and we looked into where throttle body is and it was caked in carbon. Bought some carb cleaner and ran engine spraying cleaner in and got all the carbon cleaned off. Took for a ride and is idling perfect
