rough idle then dies
so, when i start my jeep up and start to drive, it starts to idle really rough when its cold. like to the point where it cuts off. it only does this when its cold or its raining. i live near the coast but i recently moved to the Appalachian mountains. does my jeep have a altitude problem or do carburetors just not like cold wet conditions. i have use seafoam cuz i thought that the jets might be clogged but like i said before, once the engine gets warm it run fine. any tips on stuff i should do, other than let it run for 10 min. before i drive(i cant afford to waste gas)?
Bought my Jeep from a gal that moved to the Denver area from Iowa, that had serious problems with it running correctly. Timing and air/fuel mixture was off. I corrected it and have had no problems since.
