I have a 87 cherokee with a 4.0L S6. It is Taking way to long to turn over, It only does this when the engine is cold after it gets warmed up it starts up fine every time, but when it is cold it takes for ever and it doesn't stay on till it warms up I have to keep giving it gas so it will stay on long enough to warm up. Any ideas would be greatly appriciated.

Thank you,

If it takes to long to turn over ????do you mean "Start" or just getting the engine to turn over with the starter...If it is starter related check for voltage at the starter..If it goes below 10.5 you have electrical problems that will affect the starting of the engine.
If you mean starting, check for fuel supply - choking --spark, etc. If it is stalling a lot after it fires the first time it most likely is fuel supply/choke, if it is carbed choke assembly is bad...if it is FI, test the CPS TPS, or more is going bad.
