2.5 Hard Start.. Help a Girl out..

Have a 1992 Yj with a 2.5
Crank Crank Crank takes forever to start 99.9 percent of the time
Cleaned up Throttle body, new intake, seems like a fuel problem?
When she starts runs great but then does not want to start again just crank but not turnover.

Also this came off and I cant find where it goes, what is it for??

Thanks all.

Those are vacuum hoses that go to your EGR. The end with the two small elbows connects to your air intake on top of your motor. Can't remember about the other ends off hand. Just search for vacuum or EGR hose routing. Might fix your starting problem.

I would sooner say your having capacitor issues. When you first turn the key wait until your check engine light comes on and goes off.. then crank it over.. should start right up.

I would find where the hoses go for the egr though.

Try cycling the key 3-4 times,waiting 10 seconds between, then try to start. Most cold start issues are fuel related, by cycling the key it may help narrow down a fuel pump issue. please fill out your jeep profile, Ron
