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.
