1996 Jeep Cherokee. Bad starting from cold

I've had a completely new fuel filter, new battery and a set of new glow plugs replaced and still the problem is there. The problem is when I start from cold it takes along time to catch and fire, however, once engine is warm the starting is ok. Can anyone please help me or give me some advice. Thanks again John

I have 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee CRDi with diesel engine which hesitates during the idle condition. And I can see dark smoke comes out from the back. I've replaced the EGR valve since it was broken....

Check your glow plug controller. It is located between the battery and the brake fluid reservoir - attached to the battery tray by a x-mas tree type push pin. Easy to see if you look at that spot. There have been reports of a few glow plug wiring harnesses failing, between the controller and the glow plugs themselves...Check your fuel and air filters...I hope this helps.

1996 jeep grand cherokee w/ new rings,rod bear.,valve job,rad. & water pump and transmission. now just shut down in middle of highway when accelerating or slowing down. engine light now on. whats up?

There are several things that few people know about starting cars in cold weather. 1. Check your battery to make sure it is not rusted, leaking, and has a charge 2. Jump start your battery with another car, even if you believe the battery is good, this often times will still start your car. 3. If your engine is cold, and you have an older car, ensure to get your fuel lines to the engine flushed or have fuel injection service performed 4. The engine tends to warp the same way wood does during the extreme cold, do not be afraid to continue trying to warm up the engine by constant cranks with it is cold out. Your not going to hurt the car, the worse that could happen is too much fuel will enter the carborator and cause flooding in the system to occur. Wait 20 minutes if this happens and start to crank again 5. Bad spark plugs are a major reason why many cars take a very long time to start 6. Please have your spark plugs removed and exchanged for new ones. Over time, spark plugs become fowled and prevent the car from starting even thou you hear cranking!!!

My 1999 jeep cherokee sport TD doesn't start in cold weather. battery seems fine, engine turns but doesn't fire. fuel filter? pump? At first pressing the button on the filter/pump a few times worked, but...

fit non return valves in both the feed and return pipes to hold the diesel pressure up ,then check and renew the glow plugs as necessary ,also fit a manula overide onto the heater circuit with a push button type switch inside the cab so heaters can be held on whilst cranking the engine this will cure it for sure

Wont start 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo inline six4.0 fuel inj

The first thing I would do since you think it was flooded is to replace the sparkplugs, sometimes if a spark plug has been washed out with gas you cannot get it completely dried out. After you replace sparkplugs try to start the engine. If the engine starts I would still recommend that you change your oil because of fuel saturation. If your engine fails to start I would suspect that you have a bad crankshaft position sensor as it is known to give problems. The crankshaft position sensor is located on the top of the transmission bell housing on the drivers side.
