Commander Stalling Issue
I seem to have the Commander stalling issue and i'm getting pretty aggravated with it. When first starting the Jeep and coming to the first stop sign or light, it will idle real low and stall. It always starts right back up and 99% of the time it won't stall again. Below is a list of items that i either replaced or checked. Again, this issue only seems to happen when i first start the Jeep in the morning and it seems to be only when it's cold out in the morning (40F or below). I always wait, at least 2 or more minutes before driving. I was wondering if the Jeep was running lean however, i believe that effects the gas mileage and i'm currently getting 12.4 in the city (i think that is pretty good?) . Currently i do have one code showing on the DTC , which is P0113 (intake air temp sensor high). this code came on when i replaced the alternator. I made sure that it was plugged in correctly so now i am waiting to see if enough "good start cycles" will eventually clear the codes.
If anyone has ideas on what specific items i should check to address the stalling, i would greatly appreciate the help and the support. Thanks in advance.
