    Compression is way low! should be over 100. If you don't have the chain installed correctly it will lower compression. Was the chain failed? Not cranking is an electrical problem (starter, etc.) Setting ignition timing will not change engine compression.

Thundergod is correct, whoever put the timing chain on did not have the cam and crank in time. With the timing cover off, you need to make sure the mark on the crank is at 12oclock, and the mark on the cam gear is at 6oclock. Then install the timing chain. This will fix the problem.
Good luck.

Is it out of gas? Try spraying starting fluid into the throttle body and see if it starts then. If so, you have a fuel delivery problem. If not, you have an electrical problem (no spark).

We have a 1994 grand Cherokee Jeep and it will shut off when you are driving. If we wait 15 or 20 min then start it again it will crank, What could be the problem.


Without the benefit of testing, the two most common causes are either the crank position sensor has failed or the fuel pump is failing. If you can't hear the pump humming in the tank when you first turn the key to run after the engine has stalled, good bet is the pump is bad.

Did you physically go out of control and roll the vehicle? or are you only using that term instead of cranking? If you mean cranking, try locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key...That should re-set the security system. (most times) Also make sure the battery ground cable is in good conditon and properly attached.

Fuel pump is bleeding back so it isn't holding pressure in the lines. So when it sits long enough it is hard to start. Try turning the key on and then off wait 15 secs or so and turn key on and then off again do this one more time and see if starts. If so then you will need to replace the fuel pump in the tank soon.
