That looks way better than the MJ does at this point!


Update:  I've put ~100 miles on the YJ since my last go-through.  Oil looks great.  Smells like oil should, no condensation in the top end and dipstick oil looks like a honey color.

Does the engine typically fire up when you turn the key or does it take some cranking? Was there a recent time when it wouldn't start and you had to crank extensively? Are all cylinders firing?

Not trying to hijack but my 4.0zj has these symptoms.  Fires rigjt up after i turn it off, but if it sits for an hour or more it does it again.  Its actually really bad if i let it sit for 10 minutes then try to start it.  Any idea whats causing it?
