No spark coming out of new distributor


Check for spark coming out of the coil...Check for 12volts with the key on at the primary side (small wires) at the coil. Also, buy a manual...you will save a lot of money in not replacing parts that aren't bad if you do some testing first.

Where is ignition coil located on 1998 jeep cherokee and how to replace


It could be heating up but there are some tests you can do to rule this out. When the vehicle doesn't start, do you know if you are NOT getting spark to your spark plugs or are you NOT geting fuel. You need these 2 things to at least start the engine. If you do not it will not start. Basically you would be best to find out what is missing and then start diagnosing before you replace any parts. Feel free to email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with any questions or needing testing procedures. I went on below and gave you instructions as far as replacing the coil but I still stress the fact that you need to diagnose your problem first. Also this is for the 4.0 liter engine. Wasn't sure if you had the 4 cylinder engine so I went with the most common engine for your vehicle. I hope this helps.

I have a 1998 jeep grand cherokee with a 4.0 engine. As I was driving, the engine died. I have replaced the spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor, crank sensor, cam sensor and coil. It will turn over, but...


You really should be using a good manual as a guide fro testing. For wiring diagrams chiltons is better than haynes. Have you checked power flow through the ASD relay??

I have a 1998 jeep grand cherokee limited 5.2 v8 and I'm not getting any spark. I changed the coil, plugs. wires, cap, button, and crank sencer. Still no spark any ideas.


NEXT YOU WILL NEED TO FIND OUT IF ECM ..MAIN COMPUTER IS POWERING UP,,,,FIRST THING IS TO TURN KEY TO THE RUN POSITION....DOES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON IF NOT CHECK FUSES... IF SO NEXT STEP IS TO MAKE SURE THE SYSTEM IS NOT IN AUTO SHUTDOWN MODE.. YOU CAN CHECK THIS BY USING A TEST LIGHT AND CONFIRMING THERE IS VOLTAGE ON COIL DURING CRANKIN...LOOKS LIKE COULD BE BAD ECM MAIN COMPUTER.. GIVE ME THE ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS FIRST AND I WILL TELL YOU NEXT STEP

Try resetting the asd "auto shut down fuse had a similar problem the jeep would crank but did not get spark or gas also check your fuel pump? and the asd relay may be bad it will prevent the jeep from getting no spark and will not fire some jeeps have security problems

Jeep gets gas but wont start


Check fuses in power distribution center and any labeled pcm, ecm etc under dash. Make sure any relays are functioning (power in power out) Check crank sensor and cam sensor as well as ignition control module (if you have one, it's next to the coil). Most of this stuff can be tested with a decent volt/ohm meter (instructions for testing can be found in most half decent manuals). I'm assuming a 4.0 engine but suggestions apply to just about any system. Make sure battery is fully charged and engine and body have good clean ground connections.If you have a scan tool available, do scan before other testing. (i'd swear I answered this one already!!!)

WHEN MY JEEP GETS WARM AND I TURN IF OFF IT WONT START BACK UP


When this happens, have someone listen under the car and see if the fuel pump is coming on. Either the pump or relay may be going bad.
An easy check for the relay is to see if there are any non-essential relays with the same # on them (like a fan relay) when your'e having the problem, temporarily switch the two relays. If this helps, then replace the relay. Before condemming the pump, replace the fuel filter (often neglected), and do pressure tests at fuel rail to see what you are dealing with. Note: it does not have to be fuel... A bad coil or crank sensor can do essentially the same stuff so, don't jump to conclusions before making tests!
good luck
