If starter doesn't spin everytime. Clean battery terminals and a connection. Check connection at starter. Try putting into neutral to start. If starter still doesn't turn car over everytime. Probably starter solenoid. If starter spins every time and doesn't start check temperature sensor. My car once started only when sitting for a couple of hours. Because sensor was saying it was really cold and it would flood it. Had to push gas peddle to floor and hold it there until started. If that is the case change temperature sensor. If car is after mid 90s take and get it scanned.
faulty solenoid contacts get dirty when not in use u need to remove to sort out But first get some one to help whilst.... u or them turn key hit starter hard a jolt some times release it and start other wise remove it.....and need replacing and may be brushes of course u have checked al connections are tight.
It sounds like a bad starter solenoid/starter, because a starter sits so close to a engine and exhaust that over the years the heat starts breaking down the components and when you drive your Jeep the starter solenoid gets "heat soaked" so when you've been driving your Jeep around for awhile and then turn it off the solenoid is "heat soaked", it needs to cool off before it will engage the starter again. Sometimes it can take up to a few hours to work again. Some people hit the starter w(the engine off) with a hammer to try to free it up.
The solution is to replace the starter with a new one and your Jeep will start up every time. Most starters come with a new solenoid already attached so it's best to replace them both.
if when you jump it starts its your batt if if keeps dying it your alternator the clicking sound is your statrer which means thats good try the batt when you buy a new one it will have a warranty soo if it dies because the alt you will get a new one batt for free (the alt charges the batt)
1. disconnect battey negative cable.
2. locate starter and remove any wires from the starter, making sure to note their locations.
3. remove the two bolts that hold the starter in.
4. pull statrer out of vehicle.
5. reverse to install new starter
You are quite welcome. That is what FixYa is all about. Helping poeple such as youself. Now that you have told me that tapping on the starter makes a difference, It is my opinion that you do indeed have a starter issue. You have 2 options: First, you could take the starter off, and replace the solenoid and replace the worn internal contacts. This is the lesser cost option. The contact wear issue is a very common failure; I change contacts in starters 2-3 times a week. The second option is to replace the starter. If you want to go the contacts route, post back to me for detailed information.
