Ran some Sea Foam through it and swapped out the plugs for some Bosch Platinum Ir Fusions.

One day last week, I got snow tires on rims for $500. I brought them home and them put them on my wife's car which is now driveable in the snow. After a particularly treacherous drive (100 miles, round trip in the ice and snow with winds gusting to 70mph) in my ZJ, I decided to swap out the A/T's for some M+S tires. I found a set of studded tires with 80% tread on craigslist for $50 and had them put on immediately. The difference is night and day.

My ZJ has never been stuck, it was just taking a break from being so awesome!

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

He says it starts sometimes so I think he gets spark. Does it make any noises when it won't start? Have you checked the starter motor and make sure your battery terminals are clean and tight?

maybe an intermittent sensor problem keeping it from getting spark? like a bad connection or damaged wire

meaning the sensor works sometimes, but sometimes it wont. wire damaged, corrosion, loose connection.

Now it doesnt "roar" like a lion, but "purrs" like a kitten...
