Re: Problems with 2000 4.7 v8 starting
My previous Jeep was a 2000 4.7 v8; At 72,000 klms it developed a starting problem - somtimes it would start good as gold - and occasionally the starter would crank around for approx 3 to 5 seconds before fireing, other times requiring two or three attempts. Problem was in the Fuel Pump - there is a small o-ring serving as a seal inside the pump between the top portion of the pump and the pump itself, which leaks. The purpose of this seal is to allow the pump to remain on the bottom of the tank (the tank is plastic and the distance between the top & bottom of the tank varies) Note: the pump assembly is supported from the top of the tank. There is a kit available that has the o-ring; Three strips of plastic - for the easy dismantle of the pump - and a new Pump to Tank Gasket. Note the tank has to be removed in order to remove the pump.
