Last time I drove the Cherokee was last Friday, when I drive an hour South to go on a hike. So last night I jumped in it to go to the store, it would not start. Was not getting fuel. Nothing looked out of the ordinary, so I sprayed some starting fluid in the carb. It fired right up but as soon as I let up on the has pedal it died.

 Sprayed more starting fluid in it and it fired up again. I kept the RPMs upward of 15-2000 RPMs for about a minute. It then idles just fine Confused

It was uneventful the rest of the night. 

Not sure what happened. It was almost 100 degrees here yesterday.

Jeep has been running fine so Confused.  Been driving it to my hiking destinations. Yesterday I drove about an hour South to Cape Falcon http://www.google.com/maps/place/Cape+Falcon/@45.7673341,-123.9704211,8231m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5494b6c88b5e6fb5:0xa26d5caedbd040f5!8m2!3d45.7676062!4d-123.9823604

 Since I have had the Jeep I have had this terrible annoying sound. It didn't happen all the time usually when it is cold outside. Figured out the passenger seat left rear seat mount was rusted and broken. It was the seat frame making all this noise.

 Stopped at my hardware store and bought a 3/16ths thick 18x 6 piece of metal, cut it to size and sandwiched it  to cover the hole in the floor and bolted the seat down. I have not driven the Jeep since but a hiking trail is calling out to me today, so I will find out if this took care of the noise.

Little did they know as young children that they would become  stepbrothers when Chrysler Married AMC.

Great looking FSJ, I grew up wanting a new one of those,  but had to settle for a '60 willys utility wagon with a Ford V8 and a 4spd as a high schooler back in the middle 70s.
'53 Cj3B 4 cyl D25/D44 lockrights,11" brakes, Warn 5687 ol skool winch.
'46 CJ2A Barnfind project, rear PTO drum pulley, original paint, front 11" brakes.

Texan at heart,GA by paycheck
