Question type: Maintenance & Repair

97 jeep Grand cherokee limited 5.2 litre V8
on most first attempts for starting the vehicle the engine just cranks but does not fire but when i turn the key back and then attempt to start again it fires immediately. Anyone experiencing this problem guessing it has something to do with the fuel system.

it sounds like it could be the fuel lines, or maybe the injector...have u cleaned them out??? U mite have to clean the spark plug as well...
