Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Recent tune-up. water pump replaced recently but was running a bit hot for a short period of time when pump went out. Ran fine for a week after w/p replaced. Now hard starting. re-checked plugs and all ok except one slightly oil fouled. No characterisitcs of blown head gasket that i can see. Can coolant temp sensor cause this and why?
The cylinder behind the water pump is the one thats fouling up no doubt.Sensor cannot cause this hard starting unless it controlling the auto start ,have one of these pieces of metal??? in for repair at the moment ,losing power steering fluid ,what a rust bucket and petrol drinker must drink more petrol than er indoors drinks tea.The one that would know for sure is emmisionwiz,a straight water temperature sensor will not cause this problem on its own but some motors like VW golf have two sensors and the second one in would cause this sort of problem as its controlling the fuel enrichment side of the ECU programming.Just dont have enough product knowledge to tell you what one to change ,sorry .Ask me about a morris minor or a ford zodiac
