2016 Jeep Patriot - Stalls

2016 Jeep Patriot with 15K miles has had a couple of slow speed stalls. Most recent was on a local street while slowing down to make a turn. Once it happened while backing up in the drive way. Always slow speeds. Oil level is fine and replaced on schedule. Never shows a code which makes the matter worse since it’s not easy to duplicate.

Typical Jeep problems :joy: my throttle position sensor was the culprit, also did not get a code, cheap part easy to do I’d try that first

Have someone clean the electronic throttle body to see if that stops the stalling.
