Definitely. It's not a TPS issue is it? I'm not even sure what a TPS does but I do know its somewhat of a common issue.

Some kind of sticky throttle issue? I just drove mine thinking about this thread, when I shift between 2800 and 3200, it drops like a rock as soon as I push in the clutch. There's something wrong with yours.

well bummer

I drive a 2005 wrangler 4 liter 6 speed. And leaving work today I believe this same problem started happening to me. I was driving, and in the city I usually shift around 2-2.5 and I wasn't watching my rpm's just driving by the feel like usual, and then I got that jerk, thought it was me at first, but then I started watching my rpm's and then I shifted at 3k, and when I was about to release the clutch, and my F'ing rpm was still at 3, I of course was rather upset.

I tried trying to quickly change my shift points almost shifting randomly 3-4 and I noticed that the higher rpm's dropped faster, but the lower they were the longer it took for them to drop, I then started letting go of the gas about a second before I pushed in the clutch, and that seemed to help a lot, and there weren't any jerks really.

I also noticed that my compression braking was reduced drastically. I was hoping it was all in my head, or that it was just something stupid, until I found this forum. Well I read maybe 1 other forum with around the same problem as this.

They said to clean the electric plug near the throttle cable and to try and clean the connections, and they also said to clean the throttle body with some carb cleaner. I have also just discovered that the plug is called an IAC or an Idle Air Control, should have about four wires.

Has anyone found anything out about this? easy fix? mechanic? WHATS WRONG WITH MY JEEP?

I would say your problem is due to the fact that you are driving a 2005. Get a 2011. They are problem free.

The OP is correct, they do slow down much slower than an old carby motor, or for that matter even a lot of new fuel injected motors.

Its programmed into the computer to slow down slowly to reduce the emissions and fuel consumption. I find it annoying too, but just change gears slower. This is fine on road but off road (especially sand or mud) last thing you want to do is change slowly, so you have to just slam it in!

engine break more? lol What are you trying to say? its got about 78000 miles on it. and I noticed yesterday a small whistle started happening when I accelerate, but only at a certain point on the throttle. I'm not sure if it's related or not, I couldn't locate where it was coming from under the hood. But it was definitely a noticeable difference on my drive home from work... I've pretty much already gotten used to it, but just that in the morning it was fine and at night it was completely different bothers me because if a change like that is to happen, I feel like it would be a slow change. I'm going to disconnect the battery tonight and if I can find my carb cleaner I'll try that as well. Hopefully its a super easy fix along those lines somewhere.

Yeah, I've never jumped out of gear at an intersection... If I'm hopping out of a gear it'll either be 2nd or reverse haha but usually it never happens.
