Question Shuttering

Hello to all!
If someone could please help me with a question.. When I start my "01" Wrangler after it sat for 8-12 hours it shutteres for about 20 seconds. The RPM donít bounce and then it goes right back to normal. I called a close friend and he said his is new and does the something.He said "gas whent back down into the tank and wasn't in the line." I checked all fluids and air filter. Please help, is that normal and ok? Not that I'm second quessing him!

I don't know about shuttering but mine sometimes takes a few seconds to start because of the fuel lines that do not stay pressureized on the Jeeps and yes that is normal for a Jeep and a few others.The fuel return system or the regulator one lets the fuel pressure leak off over a period of time.Sometimes mine does it after sitting all night and sometimes after just a few hours but if you just bump the starter and let off and then hit it again the second time they normally fire right up.It just take the fuel pump a few second to repressurize the line.I would say if you have shuttering after it starts then I would check the spark plugs.

I like for it to shine even thought it is muddy most of the time!

Might want to try some fuel injection cleaner. Or, you can spray some carb. cleaner into the throttle body.

It ain't no fun unless you get some of it on you.

Why not use throttle body cleaner instead

Some Carb Cleaners can damage the rubber stuff on a throttle body so i'd use the right stuff.
