2001 XJ has been running great, new battery replaced last year
Monday wife goes to start it to head off to work I hear it cranking but won't catch.
To keep her from being late I drive her to work and our son to school. When I get home I try it again. I figured out that if I give it gas it will start, but it will die as soon as I let off. I also found that if I keep the rpm's up to about 1k for about 2 minutes it will idle and run fine on its own.
It will also run fine for the rest of the day. After it sat overnight she had to repeat the process. Last night I went out at midnight and got it to idle 9(same process ) and it started ok this morning.....



Any ideas on what to look at for a fix? I'd like to fix this as I start back on nights this weekend
