92 XJ Slow Crank

I've got a 1992 Cherokee that has a slow crank. It doesn't seem to be a fuel issue, because if I turn the key on to prime the system, it still takes the same amount of time to actually start. I recently did a tune up which included distributor cap and rotor. Any thoughts?

My cranked slow before, it didn't seem like a dead battery.. But then i out a new battery in and it solved all my slow cranking problems.. I'd give it a try if your battery is old.

I replaced the battery awhile back. My charging system runs beautifully, around 13.8v when running.

SuperStreetJeep - I can't remember the exact cost of the cap and rotor, but I think it was like 25 bucks for the set from NAPA.

cap and rotor are cheap like 10 for the cap and 5 for the rotor. now that you said something about the batt I remeber that did help my dads jeep it was cranking slow and a couple weeks later the batt died and needed to be replaced and then it started fine after that. for some reason batts died alot here in FL cause like once a year we have to go get a new one but it is still under warrany so we just have to pay teh disposal fee like 1.50$

When I had a accel super coil on mine it started much faster than with stock. Of course the accel coil died about 2k later and I went back to the stock one.

One of these days I will get a MSD unit, but for now I just put of with a slightly longer start time. AutoZone sells the MSD unit for around $50.

How are the battery cables? Are they corroded at the terminals?

The number one enemy of your battery is heat. Hot summer temps and the added engine heat will cook and kill a battery very quickly.

No not at all. I would of noticed that a long time ago if that was the problem. I believe even when we replaced the battery it did not help out the "cranking" issue.
