What is the normal oil pressure reading for a jeep 5.2 engine?
Running at operating temperature around 40 psi.
Your 97 jeep wrangler takes for ever to start has a long turnover you were told this was normal is it?
Of course it is not normal. You have no fuel pressure at startup, and the engine is starving for fuel. Look at the fuel pressure regulator or for leaking fuel injectors that are bleeding off at shut down. This is definitely not normal and anyone who tells you it is, should not be trusted to repair this vehicle.
