Question Rough to start

Good Morning,

I would like to start out by saying it is great to read all of these threads from Jeep nuts. You see Wranglers everywhere in "Wild and Wonderful" West Virginia.

My own piece of fun is a 93' 4cyl. Which does not like to start without stepping on the fuel pedal. I have cleaned the throttel body out, but I did not take ot off to clean it. After the vehicle runs for a while it will start back up without the assistance. And it idles at roughly 300 to 400 rpm during operation. Is this normal?

I welcome all comments, suggestions.

If you have cleaned the throttle body and still have a problem then its most likely the IAC = idle air control module. Try checking the connections as well. If you still have problems it could also be the caused by the TPS.
