Re: 2002 Grand Cherokee starting issue

also, the video is really hard to deturmine but I would agree as much as is possible from a video that it sounds like the starter is spinning but not engaging the flex plate. a new starter should fix your problem less some uncommon issue.

Re: 2002 Grand Cherokee starting issue

Haven't gotten to mess with it yet. I did get under the jeep and try to turn it by hand. No luck there, between work and my 11 month old I haven't had much time to get the tools. I was feeling discouraged but but you guys have kept me pretty up beat about the whole thing. I really need to get out from underneath my fj payment. Will update tomorrow, I've got the whole day to mess with it.

Re: 2002 Grand Cherokee starting issue

Im interested to hear an update. I would think any catastrophic engine failure would have been noticed much more than the jeep just stopping running, My initial guess right now would be starter... that said I am quite curious to hear what you find!

Re: 2002 Grand Cherokee starting issue

Well I removed five of the eight spark plugs,and I still couldn't turn the crank. Ive never done this before so im still a little skeptical that im doing it correctly,but how hard can it be stick a 13/16 socket on there an turn, right!?

Would it still be worth it to try a new starter?

Re: 2002 Grand Cherokee starting issue

personally i would continue to take the rest of them out. the motor should pretty much turn freely without the plugs in there creating compression. if it doesnt turn at all even after removing all the plugs there maybe internal damage to the engine.

Re: 2002 Grand Cherokee starting issue

Its hard to say, so do you actually have a socket on it and it wont turn? if so that is a BAD indication. Even with sparkplugs in it doesnt take that much muscle to get the motor to move some.

I wouldnt throw any money at anything until you have deturmined the motor can turn over.
