Hey folks,

Does anyone have a pic of the throtle body with their air cleaner off. I've had hard starting and other issues for a long time now and like a true jeeper, I drove through it.

I think it might be my map sensor.

I used to wheel in alot of mud and water. For a while when ever it rained the night before or if it was raining hard and the Squirrel cage known as a 2.5L was cold it wounldn't start. A couple years ago I changed the coil and that seem to work for a while. I change the O2 sensor last night and the hard stating continued, But anything that will help save on gas is my friend now!!!
I've read some posts that said some related things so I wanted to see what you folks thought?

Oh a price would be great!

This is just one thing to check. Have you cleaned out the throttle body lately? If not, get some Barryman's carb cleaner, and spray the heck out of your throttle body, with the engine running. You can even dump a can of it, in your fuel tank, as it will clean out everything. It will also increase your octane, and is very good to do. Also your sensors can be cleaned as well.

Maybe this will help. Essentially when the engine is cold I have to crank it for 10-15 secs stop for one second and start cranking again, It usually stars the second time with only about 3-4 turn overs. Before I change the coil I had to do this process three times. And of course forget about it when it rained...I would Kill the battery trying to start it.

Sahara is right, sound more like a fuel pump. If you were having problems running after you got it started, then I'd look at the IAC or MAP sensor. But to me its sounding like the fuel pump. Get ready for price shock.

On my 2.5L the MAP Sensor is located on the drivers side of the throttle body. Black plug, Its closest to the fender when you take the air box off and are looking directly at the tb.
