Hey its me again...my jeep has been giving me shit all week long...starting with high idle...I ended up cleaning the IAC valve with mass airflow sensor cleaner....then I lubed the shaft with wd40 put it back in...fixed the problem for about 2 days.....but now when I start the engine everything is normal untill I drive about 5 miles...then when I push the clutch in\put it in neutral it idles almost to the point of stalling.....just a hair above the 0 mark on the RPM

And sometimes it does stall

Heres the catch, if I shut off and quickly restart the engine it goes away for another 5 miles give or take a few...


Im thinking just completley replacing the IAC and see what happens...but id like to get some feedback from you guys incase some of you have encountered this before.

Have you checked for codes?

then next day it changes to low idle and next day its fine....then back to high idle

im thinking the IAC may be sticky...

I've been chasing an idle issue since my engine swap. I replaced every sensor related to idle control. I just adjusted my screw on the throttle body so it stays open a little bit more.
Now you say that putting some wd-40 on the shaft of the iac resolved this for a while. And it only does it when idling? Right? A new one may fix this. You also need to check your temp sensor. It's the one on the thermostat housing. This sensor will directly affect your engine. Check all the connectors as well. Maybe try lubing the shaft with something that will last longer than wd-40 before buying a new iac.

Does the 95 wrangler even have a idle screw? I thought the IAC did that

Indeed. It's an Allen head screw. If you look where the throttle lever sits when in idle. You will see a small screw sticking up. The head is located at the underside of the throttle body. Turning this screw in presses against the lever and opens the butterfly valve a little bit. It's a very small screw.

Sounds like just bandaiding the problem instead of fixing it...because its doing both low and high idle....depends on day

Mine was only ever low. Never high. I just threw out an option that fixed it for me. After replacing all the sensors I could see, nothing fixed it. So that was my fix. Good luck.
