Just started in now...I'm impressed! Hasn't run since Sunday afternoon (where I apparently left an interior light on until midnight last night when I discovered it) and has been -30c (-22f)...cranked a bit longer using the autostart...but did start!

It has been awhile, but in the process of selling the ZJ, and buying Toyota Land Cruiser to travel the U. S. of A!

So this morning I tried to start my zj. It started with no problems, however I drove it about 100 feet and it stalled. It would turn over but it would stay running. Fuel pump kicks on, I have fuel pressure, and a good spark. It seems that it wasn't getting air. I started it and held the revs to about 800-1000. I did this for a few minutes and let off, it stayed running. I don't know what the problem is. Does anyone have any idea?

Nothing, it sat for about a day, which is abnormal, I usually drive it everyday, with no issues. I drove it for about 15 mins and then parked it while at training for about 6&1/2 hours. When I came back to it, it started fine with no issues. It seems it's only when it's cold. However the weird thing is, it's been colder this season and has given no problems. Not sure if it's throttle body issues or some of the sensors on there or what...

Basically the threaded post on my t/b is closer to the front then the hole on the intake tube (air hat) was there a difference in throttle bodies, between zj years?
Junkyard...get the oem bracket/post. If unable to make a jy trip...easy to make one with flat stock/bolts/loctite lol

With that in mind, I jumped it, same thing happened. Wouldn't jumping it basically do the same thing as a new battery would?

Sometimes when jumping it, the voltage dip on cranking will cause the PCM to get confused and forget how to idle.

So, maybe I'll disconnect the battery for a little bit, try to reset the computer, maybe get the battery tested, and then go from there?

Buy a new battery, its strange but a Jeep with a bad battery will crank strong and not stay running. Hold your foot on the gas and the alternator juices it up a little and it stays running. If you want to go back and forth, test it, trust the kid behind the counter in autozone to load test it properly, do this and that, go for it. In the end though you will end up with a new battery lol.

Sadly nothing. Anxiously awaiting my IRO care package from Kolak. The Niner's currently sitting @ 3.5“, after the short arms and spacers I'm hoping to net 4-4.5" and a more stable ride. Curious to know if I can stuff some 305/70's under there after. If so my Duratracs may be for sale soon.
