2.5 cranks but wont start...Cold start
88 YJ with TBI 2.5 ax5. Ok first a bit of history...went out wheeling 2 weeks ago and ingested enough mud and water to clog up the air filter and stall out the motor in mud and water up to the side steps. A buddy pulled me out after she wouldn't start but turned over fine. A bit of remove the air filter and pull the plugs ect ect I was back down the trail and good. Two days later the starter crapped out due to the fact it was packed with mud and silt. I replaced that and it turned over fine but no start...after a bit of investigating I cut the muffler off and she started up. Put on a Cherry Bomb muffler and she ran a bit rough for a few days but was great after that for about 3 days. Now she idles much better than she did before and is smoother running but...
First thing in the morning she will crank and crank but don't want to start. If I give it a quick shot of either she will start right up and continue to run fine. When it has been doing this I've had a friend look in the TB as I was cranking it and it's getting fuel and I can hear the pump run when I first turn the key on. It's had a new fuel pump and filter installed within the past 7 months. This is only a first start of the morning thing. after sitting for 8 hours at work she will start right up but every morning she complains and don't want to start without a shot of juice. The battery cable was disconnected for a day or so while i got a new starter and installed it so the computer has been reset from that. In fact that's when the whole issue started...after I put the new starter in. Any ideas on what might be the issue? I would think if it's the CPS giving it a shot of juice would make no difference at all in the starting.
l We're here for a good time. Not a long time. So have a good time the sun can't shine every day.
