Re: 01 gc laredo hard starting...help please

This is indeed the o´ring i previously mentioned. I only don´t understand completely why this o´ring would make starting harder, since the filter/pressure regulator should keep the pressure in the line from the regulator to the engine.
But if the problem would be with the o´ring, you could change it yourself if you are a bit handy. You have to lower the tank for that, so its a job of several hours. I lowered the tank myself once and i think that you can count on 5 to 6 hrs job start to finish.

Re: 01 gc laredo hard starting...help please

I replaced the fuel filter on my lunch on friday...Initially it has hard to start...every subsequent start has been normal. I would just like to say thanks to everyone here for their mechanical knowledge and advice.

That the first start after changing the filter was still taking some time, was indeed due to all the air in the fuel lines, which had to be purged. But it seems that the filter/regulator was indeed your problem. Now you can be a happy jeeper again.
