Check condition of ring gear teeth as if they are burred that will cause a sound. If you have an automatic Check the flexi-plate for cracks especially around the crank bolts.

My Jeep cherokee not starting after removal of flywheel. Is there a specific way to install the flywheel?

The teeth on the flywheel need to be close enough for the starter motor to catch them when it engages. If you removed it and now the starter just free-spins when starting then you may have installed the flywheel backwards and the starter motor cannot reach the teeth on the flywheel. If its making a loud grinding or pinging sound you may need to manually turn the engine a bit to align the flywheel.

Doesn't want to keep running and some grinding noise when startin

From what you describe I would suspect that the starter is not fully engaging. I'm assuming that the grinding noise you hear when you try to engage the starter is INSTEAD of the engine cranking. If I assumed wrong, ignore the following:
Pull the starter, check the flywheel for excessively worn areas. Most of the time the flywheel is ok, it's just the starter. Any time you disassemble a starter you should replace the bushings and brushes. Never remove the starter with the battery still connected. Remove the negative terminal from the battery before you attempt to remove the starter.

Starter problem on jeep

your flywheel is probally missing teeth. Take a socket and put on the crankshaft pulley and turn it about half a turn. Then try to start it,it should start. If it does or tries you will need another flywheel.

Starter doesn't engage with flywheel

the solonoid isnt pulling right under load or the pivot bush has worn so its not coming right out ,hence the pinion is touching the flywheel but hasnt enough power to pull its self into contack

Crankshaft position sensor issues

Likely the sensor is too close to the flywheel. Most sensors will work with a clearance up to 1/4". It can easily be shimmed back a bit by using a few spacers made from an aluminum can etc. Hope the converter is installed correctly and that the flywheel isn't damaged!
Good Luck!

have you given the jeep a jump start....? push while in second gear? If it then starts it can only be your starter.....If it is not catching then there would be a prob with the flywheel as the teeth can wear...? you can give the 1st part a go...see if that works
