Cold Start Problem Returns

After the weather here in Arizona started to cool below 110 my cold start problem has returned. During the summer it went away. She started up and ran fine all day. The 1st start up in the morning and 1st start after setting at work all day. I took it to a shop but they could'nt find a vac. leak or bad sensor. No codes in the computer. He said he though the engine had gotted hot at some point and it had a slight crack in the block or head gasket. I did change the plugs, fuel filter cap,and rotor. No help. Has anyony had this or a similar problem?? Thanks for any advise.

I would get her to a shop that knows jeeps. A cracked block would leak coolant. A bad head gasket would puff white smoke or leak as well. Neither would cause your issues. Could be fuel filter, fuel pump, bad plugs, clogged fuel injectors etc. most likely a small issue that needs proper diagnosis. Good luck.
