    Default Idle sputtering

    How you doing, I have an 05 wrangler x 6cyl 6 speed the other day I fixed a vacuum line the one from under battery tray and other end plugs into intake manifold. Now after driving a couple minutes in between gears and when stopped at a light the idle sits around 500-600 and goes all the way down to 100 then sputters back up then repeats itself, any ideas whats up.

    My 03 tj does that if/when the battery terminals get just a little corroded. Could be a lot of different things, I guess; but that's an easy one to fix.
    Keep it slow. I can't afford spare parts.

    Could be the vacuum hose isn't quite fixed, or a different one went bad. Or the ports got something in them during the process.
