    Hi Everyone,
    My 2005 TJ 4.0 is hard to start. It has 184K miles. I just replaced the Crankshaft Position Sensor as well as the ignition coil pack and plugs. It cranks over but times a few seconds to fire up. Once it starts it runs strong. It's my daily driver. Any suggestions on where to look next would be greatly appreciated.

    Check fuel pressure and check to see if your fuel pressure bleeds off when the car is shut off. If it does you may have a bad pump or injectors bleeding off when they shouldn't.
