It won't start


You need to find out if you have fuel pressure to the fuel injectors, and if not you may have a bad fuel pump. If you do have fuel pressure, then check if the spark plugs are firing. If they are not there could be a bad sensor, like a crankshaft position sensor.

If the smell of fuel is there,check the plugs.Are they all firing.Look at the plugs and see if any look different to the others in color.If so check that cylinder.Check the lead to that plug.Is it ok.At idle,pull the lead on and off and see if the revs drop.If you get a zap,all is good:) Or use a heavy rag.Check all this first.You may have an 8 that is running on 6.Basics 1st.Hope this helps

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis 5.2L V8 will crank but not start.


Fuel delivery is influenced by engine temperature sensor. (sometimes a seperate unit from gauge sensor). Since you did not mention any performance problems after starting or on hot re-starts, that's where I'd look first!
