Idle Issue on Cold Start after Carb Cleaner
My jeep has never had any issue holding an idle on a cold start. However, I had to clean up the carb with carb cleaner (big mistake). I sprayed it on the outside and shined it up (note jeep ran fine). Then a few weeks later, I decided to start it up and spray carb cleaner into the carburetor. Well, now my jeep will not idle during cold starts. I have to keep pressing the gas pedal and restart until it warms up. After the motor warms, everything is fine. HELP...
