Car not wanting to start
I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Laredo. On Monday after having sat at work all day, I
went to start my car to leave and it felt like my entire engine tilted when I turned the
key to start and it struggled for a second or two to start. It ended up starting and the
engine went back to normal position. I turned the car off and turned on again to see if it
would do it again or if I was just imgaining the whole thing. It didn't do it again so I just
forgot about it. Well now it is Friday, and it has done it every time I start the engine
after it has sat for enough time for the engine to cool it seems like. I just had the Crank
Position Sensor changed the beginning of last month. Any suggestions? There is
something leaking under my front bumper, I have checked all fluids and everything
seems fine....not sure if that has anything to do with it. PLEASE HELP ME!
From what you have described it sounds like a motor or transmission mount.
check filters oil fuel air is it carbd or fi
BoholMark, that's what I thought it may be. But being ignorant in the car world, I wanted another opinion to make sure it wasn't anything else also. Are those typically expensive to repair?
is it fuel injeacted or carberated
i believe it is fuel injected, but i'm not completely positive. like i said, i am pretty clueless in this department.
Not to expense. I am guessing $50~$65 for the part. And a little more for the labor. It's not a hard job or technical. You can get someone from Craigslist and the part from any auto parts store. If you have a Advanced Auto Parts Store near you Google Advanced Auto Parts coupons and save a lot of money.
Perfect, thank you so much.
What color is the fluid your leaking?
It is clearish, but also oily too. So I know it isn't condensation. But it looks like it is coming from under the radiator area.
ir it oily your head gasket might be blown or your cylinder head might be warped
What may have happened was when the engine lifted it stretched and then broke something like a hose. It's important to get that fixed.
Ok, I know the head gasket is going to be extremely expensive for my price range. But what would the hose cost, if you have a ballpark figure.
$20 to $25 tops! On till you do keep an eye on the fluid. Only open the radiator when it is COLD.
You have been extremely helpful, I greatly appreciate you taking time to answer my questions. God Bless
