Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I am assuming you mean the engine cranks but does not start.
Someone will need to find out if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors, and normal compression to proceed with testing.

Two items that fail most frequently are the fuel pump (which you replaced) and the crank position sensor (11 o'clock on the bellhousing looking from the rear) That can also give you similar symptoms. Problem is it may give you good readings if you test it while it's working correctly. It's a pain to install and isn't very cheap so, I suggest you get a haynes or chilton manual and a digital multi-meter and follow test procedures before buying anything further. Could be that or just a loose wire somewhere. You can also get a code test done free at most major parts outlets. Won't hurt to have that checked as well!!
Good luck...any questions about specific parts etc, just ask!!

Testimonial: "Thanks for the two that answered my question. I had the crank position sensor checked and it showed up bad. I changed it and now it runs great. Thanks"
there is only two things left. the crank sensor that is located at the top of the transmission bellhousing or the pick up inside of the dist. it is that black plate that sits between the cap and the dist housing. hope that helps.
