    88 Jeep Cherokee Won’t start with the key.

    I have a 88 Jeep Cherokee that will not start unless pushed around 10 feet, or jumped started but even the jump takes forever. (Yes the battery is fine). It used to start fine, no issues, all of a sudden she won’t crank over. We have checked everything that could possibly been a problem but clearly we are missing something. We have replaced parts and even sealed cracks and no luck. The fuel pump is good as well. Any idea what could be causing the issue?

    Hmm. We will have to try that, we are going to look at the Crank positioning center next. She starts every now and then but not often.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
