You are correct sir and so wise Babywag!
So on Saturday I went out an found the part at NAPA and bought it, in line with "it's broke and should probably be fixed"
So for those of you curious the part number listed on the Condenser is "#3229510 648" and NAPA calls it an Alternator Capacitor and their part number is ECH M036
Well I had to get it ordered since they didn't have it in stock and I should have it tomorrow. I spent last night looking up the part and trying to learn more about what it does and from what I found it appears to control a lot of radio interference and no one seemed to to have the same problem that I did.
So I went back out to crank up the Jeep and see if I could better figure out what is wrong and the damn think fired up and ran fine! WTH!?!
So I let it idle for a while and then drove it around the neighborhood and then everything is wonderful again.
It ran great again this morning to work and I have no idea what the problem was Saturday morning.
