I have a jeep wrangler 04 4.0 when i start it in the mornings to move it right after i started it then when i get back in it doesn't want to start right i have to h old the gas peddle down to start it i wonder if someone has had this problem its just another thing they couldn't fix at the dealership. Its almost like its flooded or somethin.

Sounds like an electrical problem. Safety interlock (neutral safety or park selector). Perhaps the ignition switch?

You should never have to apply the gas pedal to start a car that has electronic will actually flood it.

Is it cranking at all when you turn the key or is it dead?

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