I've got a 96 Cherokee with a 4.0. Mornings, I start the jeep, and if I only go a short distance, say around the block, and shut it off, it won't re-engage the starter for 7 or 8 minutes, but if I go 5 or moe miles, and get the engine warm, I can shut it off, and jump right back in and it'll fire up on the turn of the key. I just had to put a new starter on it, this past week-end, and I had hoped it wouldn't do that anymore, but this am, I had it happen again. it's really annoying me since I can't just leave it idle at the gas pumps in my new neighborhood. Any thoughts?
