I had AAA come out and they checked everything. Battery cranking, starter, alternator, etc...and was fine.

Not being funny, its up to you.. but check and double check as they are often overlooked.. again I had this on another vehicle...the starter wires are a strong contender to be slack/loose...but its up to you..

No, I understand and will triple check. I have double checked those items and I'm trying to go through eliminating items that are cheap to fix. I'm going to get under there and look some more for cracked lines since the jeep sat for so long before getting the new engine.

ugh...I was HOPING it was simply the purge valve and that it was also what was throwing the codes. We took the purge valve off and tried blowing through it. I was hoping I could meaning it was stuck open but no. So, I've looked around a bit and found a bit of dry rotting which may or may not be the reason for the codes but to be honest, I'm more concerned with the sluggish starting. Any thoughts where to go from here on the sluggish starting???
