Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

93 Jeep GC turns over , will not start

Sometimes my jeep will not start. Usually if I use starting fluid it will eventually start. And when it does start, it runs fine. No smoking or sputtering.Until the next time it decides not to start. There is no rhyme or reason as to when the problem occurs except I have noticed it happens more on hot days, or (dont laugh) whenever I put gas in it. I have to leave the motor running while Im refueling. ANy ideas?.

Chasnge the fuel filter and have the fuel pressure tested. likely it's a pump beginning to fail or an obstruction (like plugged filter) in the system. (hope it's the filter...far cheaper)
Good luck! PS: filter is on the frame rail near the l/r tire.

Ignition Coil

Look into the crank sensor or an ecu that needs repairing. Those two, being bad, will cause a no spark condition in your jeep.

My 97 Jeep TJ will sometimes start and other times not.Doesn't enen turn over. at first theres no power to anything and the more I crank the ignition it slowly gets power back and will eventually turn over...

Had similar problem on 98 Jeep TJ, sometimes go sometimes turn over but would not start, turned out to be a corroded wire the the pcm deep down beside the battery, once wire was repaired it was fixed. The week wire gave some volatage but not enough to start it every time. Good luck!

Weak Spark to coil

My dad had a 93 GC and he had to replace somekind of crankshaft sensor then it was fine ever since. I guess those inline 6's are known for that.
