Check your distributor cap. any type of moisture will cause it to turn over but it won't get the spark to the plugs

Why won't my jeep start after replacing the battery & the spark plugs?


Need four basics to start the engine; timing, spark, fuel and air.

Is the engine cranking? If so, have someone to spray 'starter fluid' into the immediate air induction port. If it doesn't fire and run for a few seconds, check the distributor source. If it does fire and run for a second or two, you may have a fuel pump down.

My 1996 jeep laredo wont fire up


check all the spark plugs, plug wires, the rotor, if it is getting fuel or not to the spark plugs, or if it is flooded then try pressing the gas pedal all the way to the floor when trying to start it, this will cut off the fuel supply and you will only fire off what is already in the engine, then let off the pedal when it is running, or if you were pressing this to the floor all the way when trying to start it the first time, then leave the pedal alone to get fuel in the engine so it will have something to fire off of.

Jeep Unlimited starts but then stalls immediately


The accelerator is the gas pedal...how are you cranking the gas pedal in park? and, if it only stays running when you are doing this how are you "ready to go"? Was the battery tested? if the engine turns over (cranks) when you turn the key, likely there is nothing wrong with it. If you can drive it after doing whatever you do to get it running, it's doubtful that the ignition switch is bad. If it runs well after you get it started, it has nothing to do with spark plugs.
Fuel pump may be draining back and loosing pressure but you need to have pressure tests done to verify that. If you cannot crank the engine in neutral, I'd check the neutral safety switch....it should start in either park or neutral. The pump and switch are about $200 apiece...good idea to test them before spending money not to fix the problem!!!
Hope I got this right...your post is a bit confusing.

Backfire into intake


I'ts quite possible that your distributor is installed one tooth off and is too far advanced, causing the plug to fire before the intake valves are closed completely. Turn it one tooth counter-clockwise and try it again.
