2 questions.

So I was having some trouble with my jeep starting when the engine was cold. It took a long crank or maybe 2 to start. I started to think it was the fuel pressure regulator. If I do the on off on thing is works fine, but now I'm noticing that if i just wait a few seconds after turning the key it starts fine. I was thinking the leak just wasn't that bad.

The only thing that seems to not match up is if I turn the jeep on completely then have to turn the jeep off to say open the glove box, i try to start it again and it takes a second to turn over even though it was fine the first time.

I can't find a situation that has both those things.

Also, how do you get the transfer case plastic handle off of a 2003 wrangler. It's automatic so I know the t handle you just pull straight up but I can't figure out the transfer case.

I have experienced the second part of your problem as well...the "jeep taking a couple of extra cranks to start if I turned the car off for just a few seconds" thing. I'm not sure what causes that, but mine has never NOT started.

I'm not sure what to tell you about the first part of your equation, though - I've never had that happen.

Maybe residual check valve in the fuel lines to maintain fuel pressure when jeeps off

Maybe I just need to give the fuel pump some starting time, and the whole turning the jeep on after being off for a second thing is a jeep thing? Still newer to jeeps and learning what is "normal" for them.

How about the transfer case anyone?
