Cherokee stalling in warm weather
My Cherokee has started stalling. It is at its worse during the first 10 minutes of driving but can also happen after 30+ minutes of highway driving. It stalls when I take my foot off the accelerator or take hard turns. It seems to stall more frequently the hotter the temperature and humidity are outside. My normal mechanic consulted with a master mechanic and he gave three possibilities: 1. vacuum leak 2. Electrical problem 3. Problem somewhere in the fuel system. He suggested these three possibilities before I realized the correlation to the outside temperature. I do have some other electrical problems with the gauge cluster. The oil and fuel gauges have minds of their own and are constantly jumping around.
