Question about 1991 Jeep Grand eer

Open Question

I have a 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that sometimes won't start

Have replaced the batterey but this didn't fix the problem. For instance today it was used all day but tonight went to start it and wouldn't turn over. Batterey was okay.(Battery 2-wks old) It has done this on several occassions. Usually after sitting for two or three days it starts up again. Drive it for a few weeks and then it does same thing. Is there anyone that knows whats going on?

Unit has a draw somewhere that needs to be addressed. I have found the auto starts sometimes can cause this. But if the draw is through the negative side it could be tough. You should take it to the dealer and have them perform a draw test on the entire vehicle.

SOURCE: My 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer will start after about four tries....

Pumping the pedal on an injected vehicle does pretty much nothing to aid in starting. Try either moving the pedal to one particular spot (experiment) where it starts or put the pedal on the floor and back off quickly when the engine fires up.(if it starts this way, likely you have an injector that is leaking.) What you are doing while pumping is actually giving the fuel system time to re-prime. You may have a bad regulator or pump check valve or as I mentioned, a bad injector. Aside from guessing, there are specific tests that need to be done with a high pressure fuel gauge.

SOURCE: Jeep Cherokee starting issue

On an intermittent start problem like this you may be having a starter solenoid issue or your wire on the starter from the key switch may be loose. Or you may have a corroded battery cable or the safety neutral switch may be going bad. Is it a automatic? If it were it would be the clutch safety switch going out. So do the simple things first. Clean cables like the first guy said if that does not fix it locate the starter and if you have jumper cables the next time it does it put the positive lead of the jumper cable on the Positive battery terminal and the other touch to the starter wire with the key in the run position where the big wire on the starter is, if you here it spin it means the starter motor is ok if it don't it is bad or the connection on the starter is loose. Also a bad battery cable could cause this from the battery to the starter next put a small wire into the end of the positive jumper cable and touch the S terminal on the starter if you here a solid clung it means the solenoid is good. So check the connections on the starter and tighten the starter bolts as they may have worked loose and don't have a good ground. So if you want more as stance just post on my question and I will hell p more and if this is more informative please rate

Check the fuel pressure.It sounds like you may have a weak fuel pump.If its not within the specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.

I have a 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that seems to be losing oil pressure then dying. I just changed the oil and the levels are fine. Not sure where to start... any ideas?

if this just started when you changed the oil and filter,then it might be the filter,it did it in my 89 jeep so i changed the filter to another brand and my oil pressure came back to i would recomend and stp or k&n or wix filter.if that doesnt then start looking at the oil pressure sensor and wire could also use a mechanical oil pressure guage and check it that way to.

The hood release latch to my 1988 wagoneer is broke how can i open it?

Take a long flat screw driver and you reach the hood latch under the hood. You might need a flash light to see the latch under there. You have to push a little for it to releese. Thats how I got mine open.
