If the only evidence of trying to start was when u used starter fluid, it's probably a fuel issue. After attempting to start several times, pull a plug and check for gas/wet plug. If there is no evidence of gas reaching the plug, it's probably the fuel pump. Change the fuel filter too.

Car won't start when cold . . . i need to use starter fluid to start it . . . any suggetions?


1. Do not use starter fluid on a glow plug diesel engine. (explosive)
2. Most likely 1 or more of your glow plugs is out. They are not too expensive and are fairly easy to change. Facing the engine, look on the right side. There is a set of "plugs" with hoses, and a set of "plugs" with wires. You want to change the set of plugs with wires.

I have a 94 cherokee coutry w/inline 6. When I


First place to look is in the wires from the battery to the starter and the battery to the ground... got corrosion? this can really choke off the flow of electricity to the vehicle... check both ends of the starter cable and the ground from battery to frame (or block or trans) any kind of green or white deposits indicate it's time for new ones... this can be tricky because the corrosion can be inside the insulation on the wires... if corrosion is bad enough even a jump won't start the vehicle as not enough voltage will reach the coil... if the wires are good then it's time to check the coil and it's wiring... if you aren't real savvy at testing components with a meter then replace the coil (assuming good wiring) and test for spark by holding coil wire about 1/4inch from the block or any good ground while turning engine... you should see a nice blue spark... hope this helps...;-)
