Won't start. changed fuelpump & cam sensor - 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    Have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that has had a slow start for 2 years. Took it to the dealer and they put in a new ignition and checked the starter. Picked it up from dealer and it still had a slow start. Took it back in to them and they checked it over again and said that they could not find anything wrong with it .They said that I would have to wait for it to completely go out before they can find it and fix it. Recently it turned over but no start. It finally started after 2 weeks and I drove it for a day with just a slow start, (back to the beginning) I put gas in it before I parked it for the night. The next morning it would turn over again but no start again and has remained that way for 3 weeks. HELP!

    When posting a request for help, it is a good idea to mention what else you have looked at.

    For example; do you have any spark?

How so does it crank over? If it just starts and dies a bit after the security system is enabled
Lock all the doors and unlock them with the key this tells the security computer you have the correct key.
you need to check for spark and fuel pressure MUST be at least 45 PSI and you need to know if you have fuel injector control

Check Inertia sensor. This cuts off power to fuelpump. It has a reset button and is usually behind the front floor kickpanels.

well if ur not getting spark and u changed all of the ignition components lets think about the computer in order for the ignition to work you have crankshaft position sensor that fires the fuel injectors and the spark change that and if still nothing then change the camshaft postion sensor that sensor tells the computer that the 1 piston has came all the way up and it tells the crankshaft sensor to do its thing

Car wont start

being 94' im sure it has high miles, cam and crank sensor common to fail over time do to wear and heat exposure. check the basic, make sure you getting fuel and sparks. fuel pump only work as long the engine is turning over due to the crank sensor sense the flywheel turning. crank sensor may be faulty. no sparks, check coil make sure is good and putting out 12v, auto zone can test it for free. good coil, than check cam sensor, cam sensor senses the cam turning and tell the ecu to tell the coil to disperse the sparks to the plugs. cam and crank sensors, there no way of testing it but replacing the unit unless you have the special equipment to test it; both is fairly cheap to replace, check ebay.
