How to clean an Idle Air Control Valve Jeep Cherokee

control valve (IAC valve, IAC sensor) on my Jeep Cherokee. If you're having
rough idle or some stalling issues, a dirty or faulty IAC valve is one
possible cause for this problem.
How To Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
Vacuum leaks are one of the biggest causes of engine performance problems.
This video is pretty straight forward in it's approach to finding a vacuum
leak. On thing I might mention is that not all vacuum leaks are at the
engine. Some HVAC systems run on engine vacuum and can cause a leak under
the dash in some cases. I've even seen vacuum operated door locks. Just be
sure to be careful spraying flammable stuff on a hot engine, you don't want
to take one problem and make it a whole lot worse. You can also use a spray
bottle with water to do this same test. It may not be as effective, but you
don't have to worry about spraying a flammable substance on a hot engine.

this article I wrote.
