Agreed. If the CEL light is in place and has been tested for continuity (they take way more than 12 volts to 'blow' trust me) and the socket has been tested for voltage so you knowe that this circuit has not been cut before the dash, if you get no CEL light at startup then the ECM has probably got bad capacitors.

At this point you have nothing to lose by replacing the capacitors do you? Can't do it get a buddy who can solder, but with a little bit of practice you can do this job.

Soldering is easy. All you have to do is count seconds in your head when soldering something. Say two 14AWG wires that have been twisted together.. Get the soldering iron hot, clean the tip with a damp sponge, tin it with some solder...not too much. Make contact with wires, now once you see some movement (3 seconds at the most) add some solder..not too much get off of wire after two seconds. Admire your beautiful soldering job! You should see the outline of the twisted wires like they were two lovers under a wet sheet!

To de-solder joint using an ear bulb syringe. Compress the syringe before you melt the joint. Once the joint solder is liquid suck out the excess solder with the compressed syringe by letting the air out of it.

Another method for de-soldering joints is with some small metal braided material. Again you get the solder liquid and lay down the braided material. It will wick up excess solder.

There are several very good posts here in JF concerning this whole capacitor replacement process.
Again I ask you if the ECM is NG what have you got to lose by 'operating' on yours?

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

I am having the same or similar problem, However, my CEL does not come on when my 95/2.5L Wrangler stalls but it does work when I start the ignition.
It originally started when driving and would stall out, then start after letting it sit for a minute or two.
Then it wouldn't start at all and I replaced the crank shaft sensor and had the coil replaced, but not the cap or rotor (It had a tune up just last year and isn't driven too often)
I tried starting it in the garage earlier and it stalled twice before it started to run continuously.
I took it for a test drive after that and at low RPM it ran OK, but when I made a U-Turn and hit the gas to speed up, it started to buck. I backed it into the garage and at that point it cut out several times, and knocked before bucking to a stall. The exhaust smelled terrible with no smoke, (I'm guessing from burning too much fuel) but it definitely wasn't a burning oil smell.
I'm mostly curious about the CEL working fine except when it initially stalls. Any help would be appreciated.
