I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V8 5.7L Hemi and i have a muffler on it and took off the back resonator. It runs great. However sometimes on random start ups when i go to turn it on it doesnt always start smoothly. Usually its fine but sometimes i have to do the key turn 2 twice before it starts all the way. Is this normal or does something need to be done? Only sometimes usually when its hot out it doesnt always ive noticed. And also it never starts the same way everytime sometimes its louder than others and others its softer. Why is this? Please comment any advice.

Re: Help!!!
I dont know what it could be, Im sure someone more savvy than me can narrow it down, but if it were me and I knew it hadnt been done in a while, I would start by checking plugs, cleaning the throttle body, sea-foam it, check PCV, EGR etc..
