Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 96 GC 5.2L V8 started acting up a few weeks ago by taking several turns of the key to start. Now the only way it will start is if I add starter fluid to the throttle body and once it starts it runs fine. I replaced the inline fuel filter and checked the injectors with a stethescope wile running and all were clicking fine. HELP!!

This sounds like a weak fuel pump, put a preasure gauge on the fuel rail and check the preasure with the engine off turn on the key and preasure should be 47psi to 51 psi.lower than 47 replace the pump, a few pounds make a big diffrence when trying to start,

Take a look inside the changer with the holder removed and clean any contacts you see. There also needs to be the proper amount of electronic lube inside.
Using a CD lens cleaner is also something to try.

I have one '98 GC 5,2L V8 and remember that the first time I put a CD in my changer it read error, even though it was loaded properly. After pulling out and replacing the holder once or twice it played fine.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

96 Firebird Formula, 5.7 LT-1, 6-speed manual starter problem


Starter Have a friend turn the key to the start position while you tap the starter with a hammer. If the starter is going bad but has not completely failed most of the time it will start when you tap on it.
Ignition switch If the key turnes easily and lights, radio, etc. come on when it is in the on position I don't think it is the switch. Plus if the starter has never been replaced I'd say the chance that is the problem is very high.

try replacing the starter switch at the base of the steering colum, they have issues with coming aprt and casuing this, also have the fuel pressure tested when it acts up, the fuel pump is also a problem if you have over 100,000 miles on the car.

I have a 2000 chevy s10, about two weeks ago I drove through a large puddle of water with no problem while off roading, about a week ago almost every other time I go to start the truck I turn the key to...


There are severat things that might cause this problem. First thing I would check is if maybe that you knocked the starter solenoid wire loose. This would be the smaller of the two wires going to the starter. The second thisn that I would check is the starter it's self. If you have gotten water in the starter you could have coroded the brushes that are in the starter motor, or coroded the contacts in the starter motor solenoid. The third and least likely possiabality is that the starter is loose and the electricity can't complete its path because of corosion and bad connection to ground.

96 accord - turn key, nothing happens. bad ignition switch? help!


Could be.

Also the jiggling thing could be a coincidence. :0)

Tell me this.... when you turn the key, do you hear a CLICK?? If so your starter is probably bad.

96 grand jeep cherokee is jammed into park


the simple fix might be the park interlock cable. this locks the shifter unless you press and hold the brake pedal while selecting gears. I've seen and replaced a few of these on several chrysler/dodge vehicles.
