Using a scanner, check to see what the coolant sensor is reading. Also check for a fuel pressure bleed down. You may have an injector that is leaking fuel into the engine after pressure is built up.

    Hook up a noid light to the injector wire and a fuel pump pressure gauge . Crank the engine over to see if it is an electrical or fuel problem. Possible relay problem

My 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 5.2L is very difficult to start if it has not been run in the previous 6 hours. Replaced ignition coil but didn't solve the problem. After sitting overnight it

Low fuel pressure.
You need to check the fuel pressure on the first crank and watch it as it is running.
Requires a special gauge.
If it were just a starting problem I would say it could be a pump relay, but not if it runs rough for 5 min.
Might be a dirty filter or problem in the tank.

Hi
Pop into to your local garage and have a diagnostic test carried out.
Listen to the advise given. It may save you lots of money, especially if you start the "guessing" game.
It does sound like a part may be blocked or failed though, but the sytem needs to be tested thoroughly first.
Good luck

Living in New England we have some cold days. What I find helps, but not necessary your problem, is to turn the key to the "on" position for 5 seconds or so and then turn the key to actually start the engine. Its starts right up without major pull on starter or battery.

Grand cherokee wont shift out of first gear

That's called flairing and is not a good thing (indicates pressure loss inside unit) If you haven't changed the fluid in a long time sometimes a fluid and filter change with an additive such as lucas conditioner may help. Generally though, there is no real chemical fix that replaces worn parts.Depending upon where and how worn your unit is, sometimes doing this will prolong use for many months. Or, it will have no effect at all. Sealing will not happen overnight it took a long time to get this way.If you need an immediate fix, have it rebuilt.
