start or turn over........?/>?

It turns over. Not the starter.. after running in a store, then getting back in it you have to wait about 30 to 60 minutes, then it starts. I have a new battery and the starter was changed last year


-------we never get enough info...did you change the fuel filter/check fuel pressure?

Hello I changed the fuel filter, plugs. Then the water pump went out. Changed that. It's been sitting overnight. If I go right now it will start, but if I go get milk, kill it, for 10 minutes, it will just turn over without starting. I wait 30 to 45 minutes, it will stRt.


this is hard to advise...you need to find out how much fuel volume/pressure you have...if it was mine i would take the line off and check flow and pressure.....als > .......Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump relay with one external to the TIPM. The recall is expected to begin April 24, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800- 853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R09. Note: This recall is an expansion of recall 14V-530. Read more at https://www.cars.com/recalls/jeep- grand_cherokee/#foquiTR1T0fiqJPl.99
