Turn the idle up on the throttle body

Do not adjust the throttle body as this will cause other issues. the most common cause is a bad battery. Although the battery may still start the engine the voltage drops too low and the power train control module loses the closed limit of the IAC motor. Also use a spray fuel system cleaner to clean the throttle body. If you are not comfortable with doing this take it to a local repair shop and have the fuel system and throttle body cleaned.

each rearend is esentially the same but the suspensions are very different. you CAN swap them out. but they will not be bolt on. you have to cut tabs and perches off of the Cherokee rear and replace them with grand Cherokee mounts and perches. you will have to grind and weld and so on. VERY big job. just find a grand Cherokee rear end with the same gear ratio and you will be fine
