    2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Occasionally Dies

    From time to time my 2000 Jeep GC will die. This normally occurs while its idling at a light or I'm slowing down to stop. It will start right back up and run fine after that. Its been occuring about once a week or so

    Has anyone had this happen and what was the fix?

    I had a torque converter clutch solenoid that would cause the the converter to lock up at idle stalling the engine. More commonly i have seen a dirty throttle body with carbon causeing the iac to stick.
