Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
It acts like it will start but will not turn over.
Happy new year, and see gift at end.
which engine? in this WJ?
cranks robustly, (250RPM spec) but will not start.
turns over, can mean starter spins or crankshaft spins or actually starts. 3 states of being. (and meaningless to any mech)
there are only 4 ways to not start
1: lost 12vdc to the EFI system , see lamps dead or dim?
2: lost engine compression, no engine option stated. we do compression test. this includs EGR stuck open and the melted CAT test.
3: lost spark or timed wrong, 2 simple tests. ask.
4: bad fueling.
the operators guide covers this and the bad ISC.
in the opr. guide it tells of, 3 ways start the engine.
A: the normal way, foot off gas, (good engines)
B: 10% throttle. to add air, incase ISC is stuck close,
C:.W.O.T cranking, this cuts fuel to clear a flood.
this covers most failures. there are simple tests for each.
ask and we can do each , 1,by.1.
PS: now the give, a free FSM.

Tips for a great answer:
the starter dims the lights noticeably when activated the starter is the culprit.
If it got stuck and ran with the engine the bearing will cease and the starter
will not turn. Dry bendix and or bearings will prevent starter to swing. If the
rotor is touching the field coils it will short and will not turn.
