Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

1994 Jeep Grnd Cherokee starts ok, runs fine but will not restart

When I start my car for the first time in the morning every thing is fine, runs, ok with no problem.  If I turn it off, (for example, I step out for a couple of minutes or turn it off while I refuel) it will not restart.  I have to wait a half an hour or so.  Then it will turn and start up again.  This is a bit frustrating, since I have never had a starting problem with this car before and I know if I turn it off I will have to wait to turn it back on. I would like to know what I should have checked out before I take it to a mechanic (I just moved to this area and don't know any reliable mechanics) because I absolutely have no clue. I had my power control module replaced a year ago.  That is the only major thing that I have replaced on this car.  Please help, I can no longer spend a fortune on an automobile.  Thank you.

Ask your mechanic to clean up the motor starter, or you can add extra relay on motor stater. Because your car is 18 years old now and your wire hardness on your car is weak now.

Fuel pump is bleeding back so it isn't holding pressure in the lines. So when it sits long enough it is hard to start. Try turning the key on and then off wait 15 secs or so and turn key on and then off again do this one more time and see if starts. If so then you will need to replace the fuel pump in the tank soon.

You changed the ignition coil from distributor right?
secondly make sure distributor is not internally shattered (which is a common problem). Normally the current comes from Crank sensor or cam shaft sensor !
