Question about 2003 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Rolled my 03 Jeep TJ, I'm ok but after waiting, the engine won't start.

I rolled my Jeep, it was off it's tires for about 10 minutes mostly on its side. After 10 minutes enough people were present to help roll it back on it's tires. After waiting about 30 to 40 minutes for the oil to drain back out of the combustion chamber I tried to start the engine. It will crank, but not start. I have disconnected and then reconnected the negative lead of my battery. My engine compartment did not seem to be damaged during the roll. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    Thanks, I understand that many vehicles have such a switch under the front seat, or behind the glove box, or even under the vehicle near the fuel pump.
    However I have been told by a local jeep mechanic that the TJ has no such switch.  Also I have searched the user's manual and service manual without finding any reference to the switch.

    Today I bought a OBD II reader to see if the Jeep's computer was had or was sending any codes,
    there were no codes at all!  Just - - - - - which the manual said meant no codes.
    I am going to listen to a friend's jeep and try to find out if I can hear his fuel pump work when the key is turned to on.

Some vehicles come equipped with a roll-over valve that prevents fuel from spilling uncontrollably in the event of an accident. In many cases there will be a reset switch to enable the fuel pump to operate normally.

Check all battery cable connections, including where (negative) attached to frame or engine block. Won't hurt to check wire connector to alternator as well and use voltmeter to check charging system out-put.

1996 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 L has trouble accelerating

often times the engine needs to warm up to normal operating temperature. this varies from makes and models. if you cant wait that long, having it idle for approximately 5 - 10 minutes should at least lessen the acceleration problem, but the longer you wait the better it will be on the engine.
