need some info on 2.5L TJ from Canada

looking to purchase this friends TJ but as my knowledge of jeeps suffers mildly from a lack of use i want to ask some ?'s

is there a difference between a canadian and a us manufactured 97 TJ 2.5L 5spd???????
what is the big issue w/ this truck not idling properly?? only 82k on it!
i have seen and read a few posts regarding multiple sensors that fail, but send no check light when they fail??? weird!!!

any common repairs that get neglected on these 2.5's??
looks like a radiator has been upgraded, block style lift, and larger tires, but engine is my main concern. considering it doesn't start on first crank sometimes and fails to start at others i'm thinking:
-a timing chain and gears, plus a tensioner
-fuel filter/ pump assembly, but it only idles rough!
-multiple sensors may need replacing: if it has them IAC, TPS, CrPS and CamPS, maybe some EGR sensors too??

Mine is originally from Canada, it's 4.0, but to my knowledge there is no dif. in any manufacturing......other than the speedo and running lights, that is. I've had it for almost six years repaired and replaced a ton of stuff and have never come across any conflicts as far as manufacturing. I'll be interested to see what turns up from your questions. Sorry I can't any further, good luck.

hoping that an IAC is all it is, or a simple sensor, but just like my land rover it is prolly something weird and hard to find or hard to get to. thanx for the reply!
