Help me! Spit and sputter!

Ok so when I kill my jeep (driving a stick like a noob), an go to start it again, it's a bitch to start again. When it finally fires up it sputters really bad for a minute, has anybody ever had this issue or no how to fix it? My only consumption is that it's loading up with fuel but ive never seen anybody else's jeep do this. Help please!

Sounds like it could be the distributer/or coil. Timing sounds off.

Could be water in your gas. Pour a bottle of rubbing alcohol in your gas tank. It won't hurt a thing if it ain't water, but if it is, it will cure your problem.

Really. The alcohol grabs the water and allows it to burn. On my way back to Texas from a big run in Hot Springs, Arkansas, I stopped in Texarkana and got gas. I hadn't gone 5 miles when the sputtering started. I stopped at a 7-11 and bought 2 bottles. Since I was getting 12 miles per gallon, I used it on 2 fill-ups and the water was burned. Problem solved.

I don't think I need practice my last 4 vehicles have been stick shifts and drove them for 9 years
