Engine has trouble starting
 
Alright guys so here it is and I've searched for it but can't find what I need. I have got a 89 yj with the 2.5l so it does have a carb. And yes the battery is good. Sometimes when I try to start my jeep it won't start but if you wait for maybe 5-10 min it will all the sudden come to life when you try it again. It will also sometimes do it if you stall then try to start back up but other times it will be fine. Any help would be appreciated! Don't wanna get stranded somewhere!

Do you guys think it would be a starter/selinoid problem?

89 YJ 2.5 with carb? Sure about that?

bmx, try the crank position sensor. all jeeps seem to have this problem. when it fails it'll either a) not start or b) run for maybe 20 minutes then stall out. I had this problem on my straight 6. It usually sits on top of the bell housing by the firewall

Well after I get it started it runs fine, most of the time the jeep with start the first try but sometimes she just won't turn over so I wait for about 5 minutes and she will start right up! It's very random in my opinion. That's why I thinks it's the starter/selinoid

If it's carbureted, it has no CPS.
