#605 of 1240 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Wont Start
Dec 18, 2009 (1:56 pm)
I have a 2000 4X4 4.0 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.I have been experiencing problems getting it to start up.It will crank but wont start.I have replaced the Cam Shaft Sensor 3 days ago along with the spark plugs.The Crank Sensor 4 months ago along with Fuel Pump, Coil Pack. This vehicle originally had 138k miles on it until i put in another engine from a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that has 67k miles on it.Last month.On the new engine i put on the new cam,crank shaft,coil pack.
Sometimes this will start up.Diagnostics came back reading multiple po305,po003 misfire detected,Lost Communication Link which is why i replaced the spark plugs.When i turn the key the check engine light appears,then disappears only for the check gauges light to come on,still no start.The battery gauge shows the battery is half full,the oil gauge moves up slightly toward the middle or around 40.
Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Replaced Map Sensor ; exact same problem on ours - 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee...
Runs perfect now. Mileage is even better too.

try replacing Map Sensor. Ours had same issue.
Problem is ; it heats up light / stopped for a few minutes... but on the road works correct - cause cooler.
Other possible cause - throttle position sensor and/or IAC - Idle Control .
But a Map sensor can cause all of above.
Almost lost my mind locating it on ours [95 Jeep Grand C]... it was Map.
On other Jeep [99 Cherokee]; same kind of problem - idle issues only - was the Idle Control.

So now that the MAP sensor was the real culprit, I am faced with an old friend who got $550. from me while finding the problem at the last. When I asked him why he charged 169.00 (his cost) for the MAP sensor on my '95 GC he said the $60 quote I got on the Internet was wrong and it really cost him $169.00. The three other sensors he swapped out looking for the problem were of similar price. What to do about the obvious overcharging? What price friendship? I got the real answer here on the Internet, the MAP sensor for about $60-70 dollars. I ended up paying the mech. $550. It's hard to take the screwing. Cut my losses and simply say goodbye or go to small claims court? What's my damage? Feelings that I got a screwing from a friend. Another experience to put into a box and move on? I tend to think so but there is this feeling of treachery that bugs me. Get over it?

He's either cheating your or cannot competently shop for replacement parts. Both are good reasons to stay away in the future.

I've had a lot of trouble with the idle solinoid ,cold weather is not this cars friend. Long story short if your battery is weak it makes the computer act up. I'm talking about when you start it up the voltage must remain above a specfic point or the computer goes crazy. Cold weather or bad battery pulls it down. You can relearn the computer by disconnecting the battery but that works because the motor is warm and doesnt need as much voltage. I put a 900 cca battery in and that gives the computer what it needs even last week at -5 and starting power. It hasn't had any idling problems since.
