Question about 1991 Jeep Cherokee Briarwood

1 Answer

91 Cherokee often won't start then will 10 minutes later

Sometimes it starts and sometimes if you shut it off it won't start again for 10-15 minutes. Don't know if it is the crankshaft position sensor or the fuel pump. Once it starts it runs like a dream. Any ideas and what would the cost be to replace the fuel pump since it is in the tank? I priced the pump itself for $130 and the crankshaft position sensor for $50 and I think the labor on that would be about $80. But I don't quite know what it is. Once it starts it runs fine. Doesn't die that I know of.

Most likely is the crank sensor as they are very common problems on the jeeps.

2000 jeep Cherokee sometimes runs fine shut it off wont start but turns over fine later it will start


Ok. You didn't say what size engine was in the Jeep, but based on your problem, I'd bet its the 2.5L 4 cylinder. They had a classic issue with intermittent failure of the crankshaft sensor. This will cause the vehicle to just shut down without any other indications, Sometimes it will restart immediately, sometimes it can take minutes to hours to restart. The sensor is easy to replace and not very expensive. It is located on the drivers side of the transmission bell housing.

1994 Mazda PU Truck sometimes won't start if shutoff for 5-10 minutes.. Several tries later, it will start. spark seems ok, it gets enough fuel for a second, but then poops out. fuel pump shuto


Well there is no shutoff relay, but there is a fuel pump relay that powers the pump.
I would check it first. The computer grounds the relay for 3 seconds when you crank the engine to boost fuel pressure. Once the engine starts the pump is powered only if you have oil pressure.

91 Accord Car will initially start then when driving it will die sometimes starts right away sometimes 10 or 20 minutes later but has gotten more frequent about dying and taking longer to start


I have a 1991 honda accord dx that had the same problem. while driving it would just completely shut down. after about 5 minutes it start and run for a while then shut down again getting more frequently. There was a recall on the ignition control module (ignitor) which is in the distributor. call your local honda dealer with your vin # and will tell you if yours was replaced. If not I bought one from parts store for $60 or you could take a chance and buy one from a junk yard. I bought the whole distributor for $20 as a back up.

ok when the check engine light comes on that usually indicates a engine malfunction...what you can do is go to your local autozone and they can do an OBDII test for free..my bet says it is the cam or crank sensor.. DO NOT SHUT THE CAR OFF AT AUTOZONE..LOL
