Sounds like a bad ignition coil. Have it tested.

Motor starts then dies several times when cold


Sounds like the cold start solenoid. It is designed to keep the engine running at a set RPM until it reaches a specific engine temp.

Is it normal for my 2005 1.4 utility to take so long to reach normal working temperature? I drive 30km to work every day and the gauge only lifts up an inch


The answer could be one of many. You may have a thermostat that opens at relatively low temps. Or the temperature sender is getting ready to fail (this was my problem). So long as there is no indication of coolant loss or signs the engine is running hot, I wouldn't worry. My temperature gauge has been sitting rock bottom without movement for some time (a couple years). Parts store keeps giving me the wrong one. My truck still runs fine. And since the idiot light is on a different conduit, I'll wait till I can leave my truck sitting for a bit, remove the offending sending unit, and take it to the parts shop to show them just what it is I need.

Holding the gas pedal to the floor stops fuel entering the injectors.

model with coil fitted check this as when they over heat they stop sparking. also the spark plugs and leads, up graded model with electronic timing check the dis pack and then the spark plugs and the leads, leads can check with meter, if hard or stiff leads replace them as this can mean they will crack with engine movement. check spark plug gap to your recommended speck for your engine code. coil should be replaced every 5 years or depending on your driving times these can very depending on coil fitted. dispak type if it has any cracks in the casing replace as water could of damage the internal coil.

1993 jeep grand cherokee loses power at operating temp.


ever do a real tuneup this decade
spark parts, and filters. that be first
and make sure the hot engine (sized not stated) is really hot.
180F or more, and holds, it must reach normal spec, temp.
or the ECU brain will not do its job right.
the only clue I have here is skips
skips must mean misfire.
there are over 50 causes of misfire.
bad spark plugs tops the list.
and all spark parts there, cap/rotor,wires set this OLD.
car is old , needs a major tuneup

they to forget all that other stuff, and elaborage
what skips means.
i guess never cold does it skip.

taCH DROPS TO ZERO BUT engine not heard to stall?
if yes, electrical problems or CKP failing?
what does engine do when TACH does that, matters big time.

I don't think it's your ECM. Your problem has a pattern which is based on time or temperature. You might try looking at the IAC or "idle air control". It regulates air intake and adjust idle speed. They can get dirty and need cleaning.
