Why is it that your 1999 Sahara will not start on the first try you took off the intake and it started fine any cheap fix's?

Clean the filter, check the hoses for any obstructions, and clean the throttle body with mildly diluted engine degreaser. If that doesnt work, then it means your compression ratio might be off, which isn't a cheap fix. New cool air intakes and throttle bodies can be found under $100, and they are a great upgrade! Also, check your starter.
