1999 cherokee, 4.0lhard to start, cranks a long time before it will start.

I would like you to try turning the key to run (not start, just to run, one click before start position) four times then on the fifth try go to start to actually start the engine and let me know if it starts on the fifth turn of the key.  Do this several times with allowing the vehicle to sit for several hours without running in between each attempt.

it will start every time i do this procedure, what is going on?

Ok, then the problem is the fuel pump, it is not holding fuel presure when the vehicle is turned off like it is suppose to do.  You will need to replace the fuel pump.


ok thanks
