1988 yj

I can drive my jeep for about 10 minutes turn it off go into store and come out and it either wont start and I have to let it sit for 20 minutes or it will start very hard. Any ideas would be helpful.

Is it carbureted or fuel injected?

Also, welcome to the WF!

Mine does the same thing but it will stall out when stopping at traffic lights and stop signs then I have to start it up again and keep going. Everybody tells me it's because it's a carb.

It's probably that POS carter bbd carb. I had tons of issues with rough running and stalling at stop signs and red lights before I installed a block heater now I unplug the jeep and start it it'll run great all the time.

It's a convection type it splices into the lower radiator hose , when plugged in it keeps the coolant circulating by heat. When I start it up I have instant heat and the carb acts like it is when it runs at normal running temp no stumbling or anything
