Check the fuel pressure if its within specs if okay-check and test the idle air control motor and EGR valve-

I will, I was also told to check the fuel lines and filter because it may be gummed up from where it has been sitting and there might be a possible leak in the lines around the TB getting more air than fuel, ive put gas straight into the TB and it will start without a problem

Has this Rig been Modified from 1980 AMC JEEP Original Specs and now has Throttle Body Injection--Or did you possibly submit your information incorrectly?

Im not entirely sure, the person I bought it from has done mods of their own to it, it came stock with a straight 6 and 4 on the floor, when I bought it, it has a 4 banger with a 5 speed, the person has taken parts from a 92 cavalier and put on it, so im sure it didnt come with a TB stock
