By hard starts do you mean long crank times?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
First try in morning, engine will crank, but not fire, I have tried to cycle key 3-4 times and it will not fire. If I use starting fluid, it will fire first time. Without starting fluid will only crank. After get started and engine warms up, it will fire again with little trouble.
You could continue cranking until battery runs down, but no fire.

Ok, well, before you spent any more money, I wanted to make sure you knew that the AMC 4.0 liters have long crank times.

But this sounds like it may be a different problem, I would let someone else give it a try.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
We have been in the auto repair business for 30 years, letting someone else "give it a try" is not an option. We are not back yard mechanics who have just thrown parts at it to try and get it to work. If you are an ASE certified tech, we were hoping you had heard of a similar situation with this vehicle. Instead we will seek help and let them "give it a try".
