2011 GC 3.6 starting issue

We have a 2011 GC Overland, 70,000 miles, no issues since bought new. Just recently when starting it, it will what I call diesel, not every time but now and then. shut it off and restart an most of the time it will start right up, other times it will diesel, then finally it will start right up. Has never stalled while running, battery replaced 9 months ago...

Hi Dafish,

I know you said in your post the issue is intermittent, but have you been able to pinpoint any factors at all that are consistently present when the issue occurs? That would be the most helpful for your dealership so they can try to replicate and diagnose.

Re: 2011 GC 3.6 starting issue

Sorry about the delay. Last friday wife took it to the library and gym, had trouble staring it at the library, whene she left the gym ( I was there) it would not start, just turn over. She came in to get me and as we were walking out I hit the remote start and it started right up. She drove it home and parked it. Today when we went to take it to the dealer, it would not start. Turned over and after several attempts it fired a couple times and that was all. Wife walked into the street and hit the remote start and it started right up. Drove it to the dealership and they got it to do the same thing.
