Yesterday I somehow managed to stall my 95 yj 2.5l 5-speed. When I went to restart it, it just kept cranking until the battery was almost dead and it finally started, does anyone have any idea what the problem may be? Any help would be great thanks
Hrm, it was warmed up a bit? That changes things a bit.. the only suggestions I can think of for now is, get the computer codes just in case, and maybe try cleaning the IAC (idle air control). This video shows you how to get any error codes from the computder, its easy and free with no special tools :
As far as the IAC goes, its ust a couple of bolts on the throttle body and clean it out good with something like a toothbrush and some carb cleaner. Chances are good that you will have to remove the throttle body to get it off tho. Hope that helps.

You may have a short in the temp sensor on the tstat housing. Its the one the ECM uses(Gauge sensor is in the back of the head) This sensor can cause no starts when it is bad. Next time it does it after a few cranks push the pedal to the floor and try starting it. It tells it there is a flood condition and shuts off the injectors to clear it. That should lean it out enough to start.
