Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

Won't start on first try

First thing in the morning and after it sits for a few hours it starts right up. When I'm stop and go, turning it on and off it doesn't start on the first try. I turn the key off let it sit for a couple seconds, try again and it starts right up. This problem has been ongoing and doesn't seem to be getting worse, but it isn't getting better either. Also my fuel pump is fine so that can't be it. Could it be my fuel line? Thanks.

    It's turning over, but it doesn't fire the engine up completely. Once in awhile if i don't wait long enough to start it again it screeches like it's already fired up.

    I have a car starter hooked up and when the vehicle is cold it starts fine - but if I stop and go for a bit it seems to not want to start on about the third stop - especially if the vehicle is really warmed up. It cranks but does not start - almost smells like it is flooded but I haven't even touched the gas... it also doesn't work with the starter. After I sit for a few minutes it starts up and works fine. What could it be??

Sounds like your spark plugs or plug wires might be at fault. What kind of sound does it make when it doesn't start up?

    Your not getting fuel to the injectors. Now when there was a gas shortage did you put in the cheap gas once or twice? Sometime the dirt in the bottom of the huge gas tanks at the gas stations can get in you tank and clog your fuel filter. You probably want to get that replaced.

Hi,
If it has a petrol engine,pese check the ignition coil itself the connections to this and the distributor cap and the rotor arm,i wold personally sart with replacing the distributor cap.
But it is worth checking the ignition leads as well.

Won`t start when cold


No such thing on your car.
The temp sensor tells the computer what the engine coolant temp is.
If it were faulty you would get a check engine light.
I would have the fuel pressure checked before and after you crank the engine. The pump relay provides power to the pump when you turn the key on to recover some of the lost fuel pressure after the car sits. The one way valve in the pump is supposed to prevent the pressure from dropping.
If the fuel pressure drops to zero it could take some time to crank the engine enough to get it back up.

Wont start takes hours to start again


.When the injectors leak they flood the engine and holding pedal to the floor or waiting hours for fuel to dissipate. See if you have spark and fuel when it wont run. If there is no spark check the electronic control module under the cap

Engine dies while sitting at traffic light and turning right or backing up, both at very low speed. It starts right back up. Doesn't happen often. Few weeks ago it was going 30 miles an hour without me...


I would scan for engine codes to look for any clues. Then look at fuel mix, air flow, O2 sensors. All if this will provide information to tell you where to start.
Out of the blue guess is that you have and air leak in the throttle body, plug not firing right, dirty fuel filter, etc. Something starting to fail but not totally gone yet.

My 2000 ford contour just yesterday started getting sluggish, eas having problems getting past 50 miles per hour.like when you pull something with your truck up hill.. then today we drove it to town this...


First try changing the fuel filter. It is extremely easy and costs about 12 dollars at Wal-mart. If that doesn't work than try changing the fuel pump itself. Little more costly but still pretty simple to do.
