Jeep won't start after driving unless it sits for 4 hours.

Asked by Jun 18, 2017 at 01:44 AM about the 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, inline 6.  It starts just fine in the
morning on the way to work and just fine after 8 hours at work.  It drives
great, no problems. However, if I drive somewhere and turn it off, it has to sit
for hours before it will start. It will try to start, turns over and there is fuel, but
it won't fire.  I have replaced the distributor cap, spark plug wires and the
rear 02 sensor. That seemed to have fixed it. The next day, it did the same
thing. My check engine light is on, that was diagnosed as the 02 sensor was
failing (I'm assuming it's the front sensor, which is on order). What else
should I be looking at?
