2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 Cyl Engine Starting problem

After sitting over night or several hours, my 2000 JGC will never start the first time. You can let it crank for a couple of seconds, wait a few more seconds, then try cranking it again and then it will start. It may start if you let it keep cranking for a while, but I don't do that because I don't want to burn up the starter. If you have been driving it for a while and then turn it off. It will start back up. Can you help me with this.

SOURCE: 95 jeep cherokee country 6 cyl auto. wont crank all the time

Sounds like a bad starter, why did you replace the crank position sensor? If the engine will not turn over at all and it sparks with trying to jump the solenoid with a screw driver it seem as though the starter is bad. First you solve the solenoid problem when you jumped the solenoid with a screw driver sending fire to the starter. Check the cable connections to the starter if they are good replace the starter this should fix your problem.

Why it has trouble starting the first time every day, but works fine later, and runs good

If it only gives trouble after standing unused for several hours, I would suspect the gas lines, possibly. After sitting for several hours, if your gas lines are already gunked up, then it's difficult to get the fuel to the engine after sitting for several hours. Once you use it, and warm it up, then it's not as difficult getting fuel through gunked up lines. Just a possibility.

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.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 6 cyl. Runs for a long time and then shuts off while driving. We changed fuel filter but still continues to do this. What could be wrong?

Have you had it scanned for codes (free) at big autoparts store yet? That may point everyone in right direction. If that doesn't tell you the obvious problem/fix, get back to us with any codes they told you, and we'll help you out.
How long does it have to sit before re-starting?
