Did you check the dwell angle after you installed the points? You need to remember that dwell (point gap) effects timing, but timing doesn't effect dwell. You should also replace your condenser and make sure to clean (wire brush) where it mounts to the dist.

SOURCE: 2002 jeep cheroke misfires on cylinder #4

Check intake gasket and vecuum hoses near intake runner #4. To do this spray carb cleaner at parting line between manifold and block while engine is running. If leaking rpm will dramatically change. A leak will lean out that cyl and cause misfire

You should have a fuse & a relay. Check # 11 fuse it should be 15 amp.& may be for your fuel pump. Do you have owners manual by chance, or does cover of fuses have label?

SOURCE: car only running on 2 cylinders

Cyl 2 and 4 are probably run off the same ignition coil. I would start by checking for spart on those cylinders.

It is not likely a fuel problem if it is only effecting 2 cylinders.

SOURCE: the jeep still misfire on #2 cylinder after

Hello regenald_135: My name is Roger and I will help. It appears you have replaced most of the parts related to a misfire. Have you checked the compression in number two cylinder? Without the proper compression the cylinder will not fire. The compression should be (120 to 150)psi. But any thing less than (100)psi. and the cylinder will not fire. The cause of low compression could be valve or piston related.Having replaced all the parts that already I would strongly recommend the compression test as this will likely show the problem. One other place you might also check. Remove the distributor cap. Try to move the rotor side to side.If the rotor wobbles side to side the distributor shaft bushings are worn. Be movement I mean more then a few thousands of a inch. I have ran across this a couple of times. This usually presents as a out of time engine. But could be the early stage of distributor failure. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This is my way of knowing the answer helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

My 92 jeep cherokee sport won't start getting fire and gas and has a slight back fire when turning over changed cranking sensor but still will not start what else could cause this?

old old jeeps..... which engine, the 4.0L inline 6? why not say ?
well here are the proper linear steps.
1: fuses good battery charged, and cranks robustly.
2: compression over 150psi, WOT. if not fix that. ?
3: spark strong to all cylinders not just 1.?
4: spark timing check show its still firing near 0 TDC.
5: at the point in time, it will run on test fuel for at least 3 seconds.
does it, feel better now? that you can see it run?
if not the CAT may be melted and blocking engine exhaust 100%
6; and last is fueling (the ECU cuts fuel or 3 reasons, )
dead cam/crank sensors, or dead tacho line.
7: ok check fuel pressure next.

i skipped the all important scantool because we dont have one
1988 to 92.. (not until 1993 do they work OTC tools)

did you do the magic key on off test>/
keyon 3 times, might work on latter 92s.....

the crank sensor is tricky to replace.
its not just jammed in a hole.
did you read the FSM Book first. before touching it.
some have a paper sticky tape on the end (jeeps do)
and when you start car first time, the tape flies off getting that critical gap correct. (pure magic no?)
if not done right, you now have 2 problems.... not good that.

Engine firing order

First generation (ZJ) (1993-1998) what engine?
you dont know what engine is under the hood>?
well there are 3+ engines. or more , if exported out of USA. more.
for the inline engines, all are #1 front (RWD cars)
if you look close,. one cylinder is more forward that the other in front
that farther forward is called #1 on all V engines. (ASE class day 1 rule)
now the firing orders of most.
1,3,4,2 I4.
153624 v , I6 <<<<<< my guess. INLINE SIX Four Liters?
5.9l started in 1998 , USA Export models produced at the plant in Graz, Austria, were given the vehicle designation of "ZG". (have diffr. engines)

3.7L 6 cylinder

4.7L 8 Cylinder

5.7L 8 Cylinder

even the 5.9L fits. some jeeps had the engine changed.
so not looking and seeing what you have its a wild card.
mine has 3.8L V6
but fires in pairs, due to wasted spark coils ,(3 coils) tricky , no?

now I have answered for just about all engines. there.

Starter turns but does not start

what year car, what model and sub model and what engine.
lots of honda's from 1969(70'market) which one.?

no start, can be one of 3 basic things (generic answer ASE)
lost electric power to fuel or spark systems (Blown fuse?)
1: lost of compression 1 more more cylinders
2: lost spark 1 or more spark plugs.
3: bad fueling , too lean or too rich.

if you have spark times number of cylinders
then try test fuel, if test fuel runs car for 3 seconds.
then jump on why the fueling is dead.

Need a wiring diagram for spark plugs for a 1995 jeep Cherokee sport

V6 engine: firing order: 1 2 3 4 5 6, distributor rotates clockwise. Left bank of engine (driver's side), cylinders 2, 4, 6 (#2 at front of engine). Right bank: 1, 3, 5 (#1 at front of engine).
Inline 6 engine: firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4. Distributor rotates clockwise.
The number one tower on the dist. cap should have a mark or numeral 1 on it. If not, turn crankshaft to top dead center of compression stroke on number one cylinder, the 0 degrees or "T" mark on the crank pulley pointer. If you are on the compression stroke (not the exhaust stroke), the rotor under the dist. cap will be pointing to the number one cylinder spark plug wire tower.

1996 ford full size bronco, 302 engine, starts and runs fine, under power it bucks and misses and has no power. let off gas and is ok again. A test shows a misfire on the #4 cylinder. The plugs, wires and...

Is this a 4.9L engine? An inline 6? My database doesn't show a 4.9L in that model year. It does show that engine in 95.
Did you visually check for spark at number 4 cylinder?
For 95-- 4.9L--fuel pressure--50--60 psi. Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, see if fuel pressure will hold for a bit with everything off.
Fuel--spark--compression. Some ford makes and models, ford can disable the fuel injector, if misfire is detected. I only mention this because, swapping injectors may not be conclusive? You can check for fuel injector pulse, anyway.
How long since over-all tune-up? You did get a new fuel filter, if inline filter, correct?

I have had a Check Engine Light on my dash for a good 3 weeks. I noticed the Van running really ruff. I took the van to autozone and got the codes ran. The code of P0303 (cylinder 3 misfire) came back...

well the first thing you should do is check the compression in cyl number four the compression should be within 5-8 of the nearest cyl if you see a significant diffrence in pressure you have a week cylinder...also is there any discoloration on the number 4 spark plug a coolant soaked or fuel soaked spark plug can lead u in the right direction..lastly i would take a look at the exact fuel pressure you will need a gauge and take a look low or high fuel pressure can cause a misfire....keep in mind that a clogged catylitic convertor can also cause a misfire do to accesive back pressure give your convertor a tap and see if its rattling ....hopefully this can lead u in the right direction ...good luck

Jeep turns over but won't fire

Nice to see someone can post in real words without gibberish!!!
OK... Likely will sound crazy, but remove all the sparkplugs and put them on the stove. Heat them really well to get any residual fuel to burn off. What I believe is that the engine has flooded. According to the laws of physics, a cold engine should never start! What we do is to put more than the needed amt of fuel in, hoping that enough vapor will ignite before it floods. In "warmer" weather it works fairly well. At the temps you are working at, it won't.
Put the warm plugs back in as quickly as possible and give a very small squirt of starting fluid into the intake. before (not during )cranking.
It should light. If it tries, play with part throttle to find where it wants to run, 'till it idles by itself.
To aid in preventing this, add 3oz of acetone to 10gal of fuel in tank. Acetone vaporizes faster than gasoline. It may also give you a few more mpg. I heard a few bad things about this but have been doing the same for over three yrs and have had no problems!!!
good luck and try to stay warm!!!
