Engine cranks over like normal but will not fire or start

I have never had a problem with this truck, a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee which I have had since new(yes 13 years) I drove it into my car garage and added some auto trans. fluid then got back in to drive out but when I turned the key I think it sounded like it was ging to run as normal but then quickly quite and has not fired since , even after a lot of cranking.Could it be fuel pump or ????

    It is a 5.7 V8 engine and is fuel injected so has no carb.I suppose I could just spray it into the air intake, or is that what you mean?

    Where is the fuel pump on these trucks, is it in the fuel tank or an external pump.

    thank-you very much I am now up and running again. I believe it was the fuel reset switch.

    What type motor,Have you tried to spray carb cleaner into it to see if it will fire up.If it does it might be in the fuel delivery,ie:relay,fuel regulator,or the fuel pump.

    Ifyou turn the car to the run position(not start) can you hear the pump run for 3 or 4 seconds?

Try using starting fluid see if it fires you may have tripped the fuel reset switch see owners manual for location of the switch, disconnect battery for 15 min reset computer this also never hurts to try and will sometimes correct comp errors

Your Jeep has what's known as the delayed start, no check engine light problem. The Jeep will not start until the check engine light comes on, on the dashboard. Next time it cranks but will not start, look at the dashboard to see if the check engine light is illuminated. If it's not lit up, then your Jeep does have that problem and your Jeep ecu is in need of repair or replacement. There are components inside the ecu that are going bad and will continue to get worse, eventually leading to a permanent no start condition. There are ecu repair services and replacement ecus on ebay.

Does it have spark while cranking the engine? Will it start while cranking and spraying starting fluid/carb cleaner into intake? If it still does not start with the spray fluid, check your crank sensor.

Check engine Light won't come on crank but no start


A common problem with this type of condition is the crank shaft position sensor. A defective sensor will not allow the engine to run.

My 1995 grand jeep cherokee won't start but It turns over an a battery jump didn't work. I believe I'ts an electical problem, maybe related to the alarm because the starter, engine and battery seem fine..?...


Alarms usually won't allow the engine to crank. If it is the alarm, arming then disarming it usually gets them to start. However, you probably aren't that lucky. Probably the most common problem for Cherokees with ignition issues is a crank sensor or a fuel pump. Listen to hear if the fuel pump runs when you turn the key to the run position (it will only run for 2 seconds, so have someone else turn the key while you listen at the gas filler neck)

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis 5.2L V8 will crank but not start.


Fuel delivery is influenced by engine temperature sensor. (sometimes a seperate unit from gauge sensor). Since you did not mention any performance problems after starting or on hot re-starts, that's where I'd look first!
