Hard starting issue

Asked by Oct 28, 2015 at 03:57 PM about the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Recently our 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee began running rough.  We turned off the car and did some shopping for about 30 minutes.  When we returned the car would not start.  After some time it did start so we took it to our local Jeep dealership.  They have now replaced the fuel rail, the fuel pump and filter.  The car now starts easier but takes several attempts to start.  I'm afraid we are getting into a situation where parts are being thrown at it to "see if this will work".  Any ideas?
