Check your spark plugs to make sure the electrodes aren't all wet with fuel. If they are, dry them off or just replace them. If the plugs are dry you'll have to look in some other direction. If it's firing kind of crazy like it almost wants to backfire or like it's stiff you may have jumped timing chain or belt.

If it has known good spark and fuel pressure try spraying carb cleaner in the throttle body while cranking engine to see if it will crank.

89 jeep wrangler 2.5 4 cylinder wont start. It turns over strong but wont catch even with starting fluid it just goes whir, whur, whir, etc. I have spark. thought it might be injector but it seems like it...


Check the ignition timing as it appears that the firing order is wrong. Make sure that the cam shaft is turning as it could be the belt broken

Have you checked fuel pressure at the injectors ?
Has the fuel filter been replaced in the past 12 months ?
Can you spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the throttle body and make it start ?

I have a 2002 blazer that wont start. I sprayed starting fluid into throttle body and it tried to start. Would this be related to passlock system?


is very well could be, if i were you i would check the relay, and fuse for the throttle body injector, if thats good, i would change the fuel filter, if no luck there, i would say you are needing a new throttle body injector. See if you can get somebody to turn it over, and see if the injector is shooting fluid down the throttle body, if not you know its fuel related....This week I had a family member that parked his vehicle, went out the next morning to get in it, wouldnt start, 3 days he went without a vehicle, so i went down and looked at it, he was trying to start it with a key he had made.. i noticed the theft light flashing, i had him get his original key given to him by the manufacturer, put it in the switch, and it started right up.. dont know if that is the case with yours, but hey its a thought.
hope this helps
