Question about 1998 Jeep Wrangler
If I drive the jeep for any amount of time, shut it down, then try to start it up, it takes about 5 seconds of cranking before it fires up. If the jeep sits overnight it will start right up. Anyone have the same problem or know the solution? It is not that big of a deal but I just don't want to shorten the life of my starter motor. I originally thought it was the fuel pump but I am uncertain.
I know that a lot of starters will not start quickly and draw a lot of power if the engine is up to temp. Try a higher CCA battery (Cold Cranking Amp) Battery, your bat may be to low of a rating. If it has a remotely mounted solenoid, not on the starter. If it does it may be mounted somewhere that it gets to hot, relocate to a cooler portion of the engine bay.
