Engine Performance problem
1999 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 85000 miles
I live in Anchorage, where it's been bitter cold (below zero) for a few weeks now. Yesterday my Jeep started acting up. When I first start it (engine cold) it will not stay running if I take my foot off of the accelerator - at least until the water temp reaches 150 degrees.
In other words, once I start the engine, I have to stay in the car with my foot on the gas until the engine reaches almost operating temp, otherwise it dies and I have to start it again. Once it reaches that magic temp, though, it runs fine.
if somebody could just point me in the right direction for a place to start, that'd be great. Thanks.
have the same problem?
