Running great. . .now. . CJ won't start!!
 
Jeep has been running fine, yesterday dad filled it up. This morning it was (choking), if i gave it gas it it would want to start but couldn't:banghead:, so i was thinking it could be the fuel filter. anybody have any advice on what it could be. Any advice would be helpful!!

Well I don't like doing this a lot but you may shoot a quick shot of starting fluid on the breather and see if it starts. If it does start then it is a fuel problem.

Possible issues could be "bad" gas from either the station or stirred up crap in the tank. This could be a fuel filter. You may want to put a fuel gage on and check your fuel pressure. Should be around 5 I guess.

You may want to check your plugs. From trying to start a lot you may have got them dirty.

I'm sure there are smarter guys on here than can add to this.
