Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler
Follow-up to Thursday's problems
I purchased this Jeep at an auction where the Jeep was left running because the battery was dead. I drove it 40 miles home with no problem. I filled up on fuel before getting home. Immediately after arriving home I restarted the Jeep. The crank was slow confirming dead battery but it did start. One day later I replaced the battery and cables. Jeep cranks great but just keeps turning over without starting as though there is either no spark or no fuel or both. Carfacts on the car looked good including confirmation of the 39,680 miles on the odometer. The tubing between the air filter and fuel injection system looked as though it had recently been removed possible for starting fluid at the auction (although I'm not sure of this).
I sprayed starting fluid in injection system but still will not start. I next checked for spark and found that I had no spark from the coil high tension wire (Which looks fairly new). I checked resistance on the primary and secondary circuits of the coil which turned out within specs.
What should I do next.
COULD BE A COUPLE OF THINGS. NO SPARK COULD BE A BAD COIL. I DON;T KNOW IF YOU HAVE THE OLD OR NEW TYPE OF COIL. YOUR NO FUEL PROBLEM COULD BE THE FUEL PUMP IN THE FUEL TANK. JEEPS WERE NOTED FOR THIS PROBLEM. THERE IS A CAP YOU CAN TAKE OFF THE FUEL RAIL IF IT IS FUEL INJECTED AND TURN THE KEY ON TO SEE IF THE PUMP IS WORKING. BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU DO THIS AS FUEL WILL SPRAY EVERYWHERE IF THE PUMP IS WORKING. THAT WILL BE A FIRE HAZARD IF CONTACT IS MADE WITH AN ELECTRICAL SPARK. USE CAUTION WHEN PERFORMING THIS ITEM.
