Question about Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Jeep was having trouble starting but eventually started and ran. Then just cranked but didnt turn over and run. I replaced starter, that didnt work. Then replaced crank position sensor, and that seemed to solve the problem it ran good for a week. Now, it just cranks and cranks but does'nt turn over and run. Just like before I changed the sensor.

Just wondering if the senor could be a bad one. Open your gas cap and turn your ignition on and have someone back there to listen into the filler tube. They should hear the fuel pump kick on, if not you problem is it. I had a jeep and did all the work on it, including a new fuel pump, crank sensor, water pump, radiator and everything else. GOOD LUCKKKKKK

The first thing to check is the fuelpump preasure, make sure the compressor is pumping enough preasure, these are famous for fuel pumps going bad.try sparying starting fluid into throtle and see if it starts, this will tell you its a fuel problem.

Wont start after running for a while. service lights work, radio, headlights but wont crank. just replaced starter, got new battery about a month ago. after 5-8 hours car starts with no problems.


Hot does make a difference. You say it won't start, but does it crank and not start, or not even crank? If cranks but will not start, any electrical part may fail as it heats, and when you shut it off the engine gets much hotter since coolant is no longer circulating. Thus, a marginal crank or cam sensor, or coil/ignition module may work while cold of while engine is running, but fail when you first turn car off.

Signs bad starter relay


If a jump from the other car didnt work then you probably have a bad starter/solenoid.
you used to be able to tap on a starter with a hammer a couple times but I dont know if you can with cars these days.
first thing you should do is have your battery tested, then starter/solenoid tested.

2008 Jeep Liberty Starter Issue


cant figure out your post at all !
"When my car will not start it only growls & never roars/never turns over."
it either cranks robustly nor not
then and only the can it start, run
cranks
starts
runs
or maybe stalls
the dealer can fix it , if you demo it and it works.
its not broken then.
if it cranks correctly every time ,say so
that is a failed engine start.
if engine stalls, say so.
if rpm on the engine is real low, too low, say so.

the word turns over means nothing, Im sorry
1/2 say, it means cranking
other 1/2 means its running,
the order is
cranks, starts, runs , and keeps running or stalls.
btw if it stalls, its needs a tuneup'
get one in last decade, (sparks filters)
my guess growls is starter sounds
so if it starter works try cranking with throttle wide open
this is super secret unflood mod. it cuts fuel and clears flooding.
Good engines that fail to start are
bad spark plugs
flooding
starving for fuel.
we discount them 1 by one until. bingo

I'm having the same problem w/my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lerado v8. Got a new battery & it would crank but not start, acted like it was out of gas. I had to reset the security alarm system by turning...


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. I don't think your security system is the problem? At the starter motor two voltage circuits, one is fuse protected and is hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and relay is energized. Any testing at relay or starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

1991 jeep wont start


Did you replace the coil because it wouldn't start before? If it ran before, there must be a mis-connection somewhere. I assume by your stating that 'it turns but will not crank', to mean that the engine will crank over with the starter but won't start and run. True?

'03 Jeep Liberty starts weakly and needs gas pedal to idle


Turning over is what the starter does to the engine ...you can turn an engine over with no spark plugs in it...but you can't start it. Turning over is cranking .....the starter turns (cranks) the engine over (comes from when you had to put a crank in the front of the engine and crank it.)
Does it crank normally but has trouble starting???????

Trouble starting 1990 jeep cherokee


IF THE VEHICLES STARTER TURNS, BUT DOES NOT ENGAGE THE STARTER BENDIX IS THE PROBLEM. YOU CAN REPLACE THE BENDIX OR YOU CAN JUST GET ANOTHER STARTER. IF IT IS GRINDING AWAY AND NOT ENGAGING CORRECTLY IT WILL DAMAGE THE RING GEAR ON YOUR FLYWHEEL EVENTUALLY. REPLACEMENT OF THE FLYWHEEL WILL BE COSTLY IF YOU DON'T DO YOUR OWN WORK. ALSO TO REPLACE THE FLYWHEEL IS A LITTLE LABOR INTENSIVE AND REQUIRES SOME TIME TO COMPLETE.

1991 Jeep Cherokee wont start after being ran for a bit


Sounds like the starter decided to quit on you. Replace it and things will be better.
