#1 of 13 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee has trouble starting.
Jun 29, 2009 (2:39 pm)
My Grand Cherokee has trouble starting up from cold. The first time I try to turn the engine over, it just won't start. Then when I try the second time, it ALWAYS turns over. This has been going on for 3 months now. I never have any engine problems, it just doesn't want to start on the first try. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

this problem just started a week ago,i tryed to start it and it cranked very well but starts after i try several times and when it does start it sputters for about 15 sec's then runs well after that. i had the codes checked and no codes but with further checks found out carbon buildup!!! a mechanic friend suggested seafoam in carb. and gas tank. this did not cure the problem, could it be the fuel filter? thanks for any help with this problem,when it starts everything runs fine.

my jeep limited just started acting up since it was new! when i start the engine it takes several times 3-4 and then slowly starts up and after 15 secs starts running normal. i added some seafoam to gas and oil but it made no impact.
i was wandering if anyone with this engine type v-8 has experienced this.
its been acting like this for about a week. could it be the gas filter clogged?
thanks for any replys on this.

I actually just changed all my spark plugs and spark plug wires and the problem went away.

I have had the same problem for about a year now (starts the second or third time every time and once it is running no problems). I did my plugs, but not my ignition coils. It seemed to help, but it did not fix it completely. Did you change your ignition coils or the spark plug wires?
I have also read a lot of suggestions for replacing the crank position sensor for the same problem as well. Has anyone tried that?

Sounds like your temperature sensor. Just had mine replaced for $ 158.00. They are easy to put in if you know anybody that can do it. You can buy the part at autozone. Good LUck

a/c clutch is making noise and smells like rubber burning and air is not cold.
is it simple to replace this part and do i need to take belt off before removing bolt
