JLO Thanks for the reply Matcheen and Sevensevices. I'm trying not to resort to a manual choke, but if I must, I will. I'll check into the wiring. I just bought this Jeep a few weeks ago and I'm still trying to figure out what has been modified. I pulled the plugs, they look good and new. The cap and wire look pretty new, i have not taken off the cap to look at the rotor, but I suspect its okay too. When its warm, it runs great. Can it be an air intake issue?

sevenservices welcome!

before putting to much into 'er, be sure your battery cables are clean and tight on both ends. A loose connection can sometimes cause you to lose power to the top end and it will hesitate and/or stall.

Wondering when your last tune up was??? Distributor Cap/Rotor/Plugs/Wires?

Matcheen Is the choke opening up all the way? Maybe go with a manual choke setup. That worked for me.

Stallin problem with 89 YJ

I have a question about a...well kinda a starting issue. I had some problems starting the Jeep when it was cold, and keeping it running until it warmed up. I seems it was the auto choke, I rewired it and seems to be working ok, I think. Here is the problem that I still have. When it is cold, that is below about 200 deg. It stalls and wants to die when I press the accelerator. Once its above 200 it works great. Any ideas? I hope I explained that clearly.

Anyone have an idea what is wrong?
