1996 jeep grand cherokee wont idle?

1996 jeep grand cherokee: Won't idle: Cranked it over for and while and had to use the pedal to get it to start. Finally got it started and held it around 1000 rpm for about 5 minutes. Wouldn't hold an idle so increased the rpm to about 2000 for about 5 minutes. Won't hold idle so reaved it up a few times to around 3-3.5. Any ideas on what is wrong or what to do to achieve idle?

It really sounds like the intake is plugged up. Seafoam the motor -10 bucks- through the intake.
During the treatment, white smoke will pour out of any and all vacuum leaks.
