    suggestions are that car has to be serviced even though it had been serviced three weeks to the problem. another suggestion is that the heater plugs are faulty.

Black smoke emanating from exhaust indicates carbon and a lack of complete combustion of fuel Could be caused by too much fuel entering cylinder, weak spark, choke still on, clogged air filter, etc.

My 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 5.2L is very difficult to start if it has not been run in the previous 6 hours. Replaced ignition coil but didn't solve the problem. After sitting overnight it

Low fuel pressure.
You need to check the fuel pressure on the first crank and watch it as it is running.
Requires a special gauge.
If it were just a starting problem I would say it could be a pump relay, but not if it runs rough for 5 min.
Might be a dirty filter or problem in the tank.

2001 jeep grand cherokee exhaust smoke whitish color.runs great sounds great,smoking is not continuous ,kind of pale in color, and is using oil.

Hello. yes, you are burning oil resulting in the white smoke. Try a heavier weight oil in the crank case, or an oil additive specifically for high mileage, oil burning vehicles. There are a number of them on the shelves at any auto parts store. J.

My 1999 jeep cherokee sport will not start. Fuel is fine, filter is good, car tries to turn over but does not engage. Small amount of white smoke from the back of the engine. Replaced the battery,...

Have you looked at the crank position sensor? It's mounted on the transmission bellhousing, on the right side of the engine near the top. It's a relatively cheap part and is fairly easy to get to.

Wait a minute, when you say "small amount of white smoke from the back of the engine," do you mean under the hood, or out the exhaust pipe?

My 96' Jeep Cherokee will not turn over or start

ASE Mechanic here. check all the fuses to start, and check voltage on battery. if there was a battery draw all night the vehicle might have started but the alternator could not charge the battery because its power was too low and causing the ignition to die and then not allowing the vehicle to start. keep me posted!!!!!!!!!!!

Engine light flashing

Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem also probaly because there is something wrong. If you don't have one already, get a Haynes or Chitlens Repair manual. They break down how to fix just about anything on the specified car. This will tell you how to check the ECM, or car computer. You will watch as the system gives you a set of blinking lights that are coded. You then take the number of long and short blinks ie. 4 long and 3 short, and go to the codes in the repair manual. It will tell you what engine part is sending a problem to the ECM, seeing as there are hundreds of different components that can go bad.
also have a mechanic check your turbo.most will tell u that a turbo blows black smoke but can aslso blow white smoke when turbo is malfunctioning

94 Jeep Cherokee won't start

I believe the green wire is a pulse from the distributor and its a ground signal. I could be wrong since is been a while since i left the jeep dealer...I would take the coil out (2 bolts on most) and take it to autozone. They can test it in minutes for free. Either that or the ignition module but more common is coil.
