Hello fellow Jeep owners (well, most of you).
I'm looking for some advice from someone who knows something about fuel injector problems.
But first, I'll introduce myself. I'm a 63 year old mother of 9 children, 4 step children, and 19 grandchildren. I've owned my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo since November 2002, and I love it. Has got me through many snowy and icy situations.
I used a similar forum about 6 years ago when my Jeep was having some problems, and the most likely answer was a crank position sensor problem. I mentioned that to my mechanic (we lived in a rural area in Nevada at the time), and he had never heard of that!! Unbelievable! Anyway, I finally got it to a Jeep dealership in Salt Lake City and got it fixed. Nice to meet someone who believed me, and knew what I was talking about.
In May I had a tuneup done, and they also serviced the fuel injector. My Jeep has always started with the first crank, even at 40 below. Now it just cranks and cranks if it has been sitting for more than 5 or 10 minutes. Some kind of check valve problem, I believe, but for some reason they can't find it. I took it back and they told me (after having the car for 2 days) that it was NOT the fuel pump. I already knew that as I had that replaced at the time I got the crank position sensor replaced.
Sure hope someone has some ideas for me to pass along to the mechanic
since this is getting very frustrating.
