2006 Jeep TJ problems starting

My Jeep has been having problems starting most of the time it has to crank a lot to start other times it starts right away and dies and other times it just starts and keeps running. I don't know if it matters but this started to happen shortly after I had the Fuel systems cleaned by my local Jeep Dealer Anyone know what this might be? ( I am thinking it is either the fuel pump or the fuel filter)

BTW my jeep has 40000 miles on it and gets an oil change every 3500 miles I don't know if that matters either.

Thank you in advance for your help


Update....
Also I forgot to mention I am getting a check engine light for (Small Evap Leak) could that be what is causing it?

sounds like your fuel line may be clogged or a bad injector...I wanna know the method of how this local dealer cleaned out your fuel system....a can or two of seafoam is best...it cleans slowly and doesnt let big pieces of gunk and buildup to enter the pipes..... an aggressive cleansing can do more harm than good...imho

Anything is possible...but I'm leaning towards whatever that dealer did...is take it back to them and tell em what's what....you may have a leak in a vacuum hose or may just Ned a new canister..
