I just got a 97 tj sport, and everything seems to be working fine except one thing: it takes a few more seconds than I would like for it to start, and when the engine is coming down from a rev, it sounds a bit uneven/throaty. Was thinking it might be a dirty O2 sensor or something... any suggestions?

Could be. Or spark plugs, wires, etc. Is it throwing any codes?

I would also try resetting the epu. Disconect the battery hot side for a few minutes, then reconnect.

Other than that, probably something spark/plug/cap/rotor related. If its a sensor it would be throwing a code or at least the check engine light would be on.
