Question about 2001 Jeep Cherokee
I have a 2001 Jeep Cherokee, that worked FINE yesterday, got up this morning and tried to start it, and it tried, and tried to start but would not turn all the way over. You could here it was attempting to start. It was a REALLY humid night and morning I was wondering if maybe the spark plugs were too wet to start the car, or what else could it be?
Your theory is good...Ignition wires that are older become porous and will allow spark "bleed off" and cross-firing. Road dirt residue on outside of the cap and coil tower can also cause similar problems. Also check the inside of the cap for any signs of moisture or carbon tracking. When buying ignition parts, stay from cheap stuff bargain components tend to have a lower dielectric number making them more prone to failure Use blue or brown caps and rotors they tend to me made from better materials. Same concept applies to wires...Higher silicone content makes them more weather resistant. Spark plug "business ends" are inside the engine and generally unaffected by weather. If they are very old, pull a few and check the gap. If it is substantially larger than factory recommendation change them. (do not forget to check each before installing they often are not pre-gapped because specs vary from engine to engine.) I prefer gapping about 2-4 thousandths closer than factory. It's easier for an old coil to push spark across and they wear into specs instead of away.That about covers it...any problems, you know where I am!!!
