SOURCE: starts and runs 3-5 seconds and shuts down

Sounds like your security system is shutting the car down. You should be able to leave the key on for 15 minutes and it will reset itself. Make sure you are using factory keys, and they are in good condition.

SOURCE: cranks for about 10 seconds then starts, then runs

I would first suspect the oxygen sensor will need to be placed. They tell the engine how much gas to give to engine. Do make sure plugs and spark and strong and can burn off the fuel. Bad timing would cause the fuel not to burn right but you would have misfire if that was the case,

SOURCE: starts runs for 2 to 3 seconds then dies

try a idle speed control module(also call a tps throttle posistion sensor) this should solve your problem. if not then something else is wrong but id start there first.

My xj8 Jaguar crank up and sets right back off what all could be wrong


Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

JEEP WJ 2000
starts and cranks are 2 different things, so i cant follow this.
my guess its the starts for 2 seconds and stalls.
which is IMMO, set. if the IMMO is set , all starts end in, cut fuel.
did you read the FSM on this?
working book free is near impossible.

Isince it cranks, means you have power, elctric system is ok! I guess.. this could be a result of gas delivery problem... either a pump or gas circuit controller....

2000 jeep cherokee starts then stalls in approx 3 sec 4.0 has new crank sensor


I am going to assume that it will not run even if you push on the accelerator pedal?
Can you install or attach an old timing light to the spark plug wires, turn it one and try to start it. The light should flash with the engine running, but if it shuts off at time of engine die, and the engine is still spinning, you are losing spark, My suggestion is the cranks shaft sensor on bell housing.
Second, install a pressure gage on the test port on the fuel rail and watch it as you start the engine, fuel pressure should not drop as the engine dies, if it does, the pump is not working correctly. There are two modes of power to that pump, one to start and timed, for only a few seconds to prime the system, and one to run continuously. Find the wires going to the pump at the tank. Connect test light to those wires and watch what happens during crank and at stall, You should not have the pump shut off and the engine dies.
If you have spark, and fuel pump working, when did you last change the filter,,but I put that LAST.
It has to be one or the other of these.
Good Luck
