    mine is a 97 cant seem to find any help either other then timing is crucial for the cam and crank sensors to correlate with each other heard about indexing or mating the distributor before dropping it in but havent had any luck yet let me know when you find something and ill let you know when i do

    you having any codes i have an 11 or a P1391 which is cam and crank sensor lol both replaced with new same problem

The timing is adjusted by looseing the distributer bolts and you turn the whole distributerlighty in either direction while watching your timing marks on the crank shaft till you match up the marks

1990 jeep wrangler motor has no compression

Take it back to the shop that did the engine overhaul. No compression at all? They did something very wrong. Does the distributor shaft and rotor turn when cranking the engine? Are you sure your compression tester is working and hasn't failed? Is it possible they got the timing for the crank and camshaft all wrong? Take it back to them and demand they fix it, if it truly has no compression. It will never start without compression.

I have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler and want to change the turn signal lever from "high Low' wipers to "intermittent" wipers. How do I do this?

you will also possibly require a diffrent wiper motor as well as the switch assy. Call Jeep and see if the motor too is different, also the wiring harness(might be a project), and you may need to remove the steering wheel on the jeep to access the switch.....not sure on the 1995

I start my 4.0 jeep wrangler and it has a starter problem and sum times it starts and other times it will crank over once or twice then sounds like the starter just spins and try that over and over and it...

When most parts stores check a starter they only check the motor itself. sounds like the bendix drive is failing (it's essentially a one way sprague) . When it fails the motor itself spins but the drive won't turn the engine. Most parts stores can order one for you but it's generally cheaper to get a used one from a scrapyard. Other option is a rebuilt unit.

Try adjusting your clutch as it is clearly not disengaging properly in second, you might also try adjusting your shift linkage.
