Check the carb out sounds like its pushing to much fuel in butterfly could be stuck or choke on constant any warning lights on the dash i.e. engine managment light this could be the lambor sensor in the cat if this sensor has gone then it could be telling the fuel system to push more fuel in.

Starting in the morning cold is a problem. Jeep

The problem is with the engine management system that controls the idle speed for cold starts and pretty much everything else. In the old days the problem would be the auto choke but as this is a new model its the electonics I'm afraid. You can get this sorted out at a dealer. It should still be under warrenty.

I have a 1989 jeep cherokee. Engine runs fine when in park but as soon as you put it into gear it will die. Put it back in park and it will start right back up and run fine. Any ideas?

I would suggest checking for carbon build up around the throttle plate edges and back of throttle can be cleaned with throttle plate cleaner by CRC company and a old toothbrush.

89 jeep wrangler wont start

Sounds like the drainback valve inside the pump is shot...try just turning the key on and waiting a minute and see if it starts that way.

2000 jeep wrangler stopped running

First, re-check your repair to make sure it has not come apart. Check to see if the pump is running and pump relay is working. I'm pretty sure that your filter is incorperated into the fuel pressure regulator on top of the pump assembly..If the filter is not on the frame rail near the left rear wheel, that's where you will find it.check that you have proper flow and pressure. Your problem sounds like a possible plugged filter.
Don't forget that aside from fuel, you need spark as well. Make a quick check there to make sure you're not looking for the wrong problem. An easy way to check is to squirt carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking. If engine starts, problem is on the fuel side.
