Takes a long time to start
My wife drives an '04 3.7L KJ and is having issues getting it started in the mornings or after letting it sit for a while. I tried to start it this morning when it was 32 degrees outside to see what the deal was. It cranks then turns over normally and the idle will go to over 1K rpm then drops and cuts out. If I kept my foot on the gas and kept idle over 1K it continued to run unless I decided to take my foot off the gas. It will only remain running with my foot off the gas once the engine temp got to half way. We had to replace the battery the other day and that's the only change that's been made recently. I was wondering if the IAC may be acting up. If so, how do I check it before coughing up cash for a new one. I also wondered about the TPS. I'm not a big fan of her KJ. I've always driven the XJ and they were easy to work on. Hers is a pain because everything is so tightly packed in and not easily accessible. Let me know what y'all think.
