Has trouble in the morning

I leave for school around 7 a.m. and my 94, 2.5 has some trouble. As i let out the clutch and give some gas, the rpms bog down past 1000 idle rpm as if stalling out. I push the clutch back in and it saves it. I have to push the throttle to get it into first. After that, on the road i accelerate and the jeep kicks back and forth because the rpms drop quickly to about 1000 and then back up to where it was. It does it in second gear as well.

Im wondering if its a moisture problem because of the dew in the mornings, maybe the distributor. It does not do it later in the day. Anybody have any suggestions? Input would be greatly appreciated

Try changing your spark plugs and work your way from there

Try the spark plugs first they're easy to change and cheap after that I would be convinced it's your battery

There's a few different things it could be. I had the same issues and reside nearby.

Morning moisture will affect your distributor/rotor.

Does it start up quickly in the morning or does it crank for a while? I recently rebuilt my computer (for less than $10) and it solved a lot of the morning issues.

allow 3-5 secs after turning key on. it takes that long for relays and fuel flow to get to the engine. an old fuel filter may also be the culprit.

When your turn your key to the 'on' position - not start - the 'check engine' light should come on immediatley. That's when the CPU has power. If it takes a few seconds, the capacitors on the board are problably worn and should be replaced.

Google for the repair - I found great detailed threads on another board. Both for the diagnostics and the actual repair.

Hmm. I replaced all starting parts besides the coil. But the check engine light does come on. It could be a bad fuse.
