It can be low fuel pressure issue,get the fuel pressure tested.If its low then fuel pump needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a rough idle at first

You do have a filter and it's mounted right on top of the pump on outside of tank...it is also the pressure regulator. You really should put a pressure gauge on the fuel system and check it out though. you may find there is a problem elsewhere. Good and proper testing is the only way to get answers about problems especially now that systems are all electronically controlled.

SOURCE: Having trouble keeping my 98 jeep grand cherokee running

i recommend cleaning the throttle plates. they are located unter the intake hose form the engine to the air filter housing. if you open them with the engine not runniong you will see they will be covered in carbon. use a good carb cleaner and a rag to wipe them clean

At least take the time to remove your computer connector & check & clean all contacts with battery disconnected, negative first.. Clean good with an electrical cleaner spray can. re-connect then re-connect battery, with negative last.

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
