Jeep sat for two months, what to check?
 
So I'm coming back home tomorrow from a two month trip to China and my Jeep(and my wife's Acura TL) has been sitting the whole time(unless someone drove it without telling me lol). It's a 2000 4.0L auto. I just bought a new battery before I left(same for the Acura) so I'm worried it may have died? What are some other things to check? Another thing I'm worried about are the fuel lines and maybe the filter. I do have a new performance pump still waiting to go in though.

Ne need for 20 mo of sitting, I would let it idle for a couple min and call it good

I keep seeing your signature appear below the normal text with no division and if looks like you are calling a bunch of people stupid :rofl:

Lol, I noticed this as well and was quite confused.

Two months is nothing

If the battery has enough juice to turn the engine over a few time, you should be golden. Let it idle for a few minutes and you should be good to go.

If anything, put a charger on the battery for an hour or two. But I would just start it up and just let it idle a minute or two and take it out for a ride. Also check tire pressure too.

Back home and it started up just fine. =)
