I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When I come to a complete stop. After about three minutes. The car wants to leap forward while my foot is on the break. This only happens during long idle periods.

    check your tps (throttle position sensor) this also happens to me in my 2000 4.7. does it usually happen after long driving periods? Does your rpm gauge bounce up and down?
