Take off your gas cap and have someone stand there with thier ear at the hole, (no smoking), turn the key to on just before start and they should hear the fuel pump humming. if they dont then try to start. if it doesnt start turn key off and at that instant the pump should be heard again. What i think is happening is your pump is only energizing when you turn the key to off instead of energizing when you turn key on. Its supposed to energize when turning your key on and off. This would explain your second start working and not your first. This can be caused by a bad fuel pump relay switch. Hope this helps. please rate me

My car doesnt want to start intermittently


well in that case please look at the fuse for your starter , if there is no loose connection , consider checking ur starter brushes, it might be the time you change them with its selenoid, if its not the starter problem , but the engine doesnt start 1st time you start it, well i got bad news, there is something called the pick-up sensor on ur crank shaft that u need to further investigate and change it

I just replaced a starter in a 1999 jeep grand cherokee and it doesn't start?could I have done something wrong,? and if so what could be wrong ?


What you likely did wrong was to assume the starter was bad without doing any testing. So, do you have power at the main lead of the starter? When the key is turned to "start" is there power at the small terminal next to the main one there? Have you checked the relay in the power distribution center (and fuses)? Is the neutral safety switch good? Is the ignition switch and wiring good? Is the battery fully charged and was it load tested? are the terminals clean and secure? (both ends of each). Unless you can verify these items, it is easy to mis-diagnose a starter problem. Also: Can you turn the engine by hand? Chances are it's good, but the new starter could also be defective!

My car wont work once it has run 4 a while but will start 1st time when its cold


could be the starter or clogged fuel filter. If the starter is turning over then my first check would be the fuel filter.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalling and not starting


Since you've replaced many of the usual suspects (fuel pump etc.) you might want to look into testing or simply replacing the crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor. If you intermittently lose one the these signals it would cause the problem you describe.

I have a 1990 Jeep Cherokee 5 speed. To start it you have to turn the engine over and it engages but doesnt quite catch. You have to turn the key all the way off then over about 10 times before the engine...


I THINK I ALREADY SENT YOU AN ANSWER, BUT IF NOT HERE GOES AGAIN. YOUR STARTER BENDIX SOUNDS BAD. IT IS LOCATED IN THE STARTER. YOU CAN REPLACE IT, OR JUST GET ANOTHER STARTER AND PLACE THAT IN YOUR VEHICLE. PERFORM THE REPAIR SOON SO YOU DON'T DAMAGE THE RING GEAR ON YOUR FLYWHEEL. THAT WILL BE A VERY EXPENSIVE PROCESS FOR YOU IF YOU HAVE IT DONE AT A GARAGE.

Grand cherokee 1999


1. is the engine turning over. If it is then you probably have a timing/fuel problem.

2. If all you get is a click sound and no engine turn over then flat battery could be a starting point.

3.if it starts and runs rough plugs and or plug leads may need looking at. Or maybe fuel injection system.

4.Not enough information to get more specific.
