I have a 1994 wrangler 2.5 liter m.t...I just had the motor rebuilt and runs great. A week later it starting to quite suddenly. I would waite 20 minutes and it would retart. When it quits it has no spark,...

a fuel pressure gauge is $20
if pressures ok at fail, then it s NOT PRESSURE problem
(physics here)
you could by a scan tool (obd1) and see what happens at stalls.

one way to find stalls for sure pre 1996 is to measure voltages
on the ASD relay (the stall relay, LOL)
it if drops just before the stall that means the stall was
and if the ECU commanded it , it knows why and will tell you why.
if the stall is not due to ASD drop
then its may other causes.
when you said it had no spark, i bet $10 you did it wrong,?
takes 2 persons, one at key other testing
if not you can NOT run from key to spark plugs, in 2 seconds
the ASD drop out rules.
yah cant
rule 1: key on and see the ASD close, (voltages)
it must close for 2 seconds cranked, must
and just stay closed, cranked, or if in 2 seconds it drops out
'that means the ECU dropped ASD for CAUSES, 1 to 8 reasons
the VTSS reason is not it, your car has no Immoblizer. feature.

here is a list
engine bad, low compression on 1 or or cylinders. (ask how)
spark is bad, ever get a tuneup this decade? FULL(spark parts)
ASD dead.
ASD drops early
ASD can drop at 80mph, so, ASD is always suscpec
loss of 12vdc power to the EFI system at any time it will stall.
can you save the stall with fast right foot, this test is like magic
in the diagnosis world, can you?
is engine flooding spark tips soaked, x4?
use wide open throttle to cut fuel cranked clears all floods i jeeps
(baring injector leaks sure)

what is ASD (all jeep stalls, read this first)
what does it do, and how, and why,
are all here

Sounds like a fuel pressure problem, either the pump or the filter among other things.

96 nissan 200sx started and ran rough for 10 sec then died and wont restart. distributor is turning. no fault codes. has good fuel pressure. spark looked weak so i changed cap and rotor. still wont start....

something to ponder over here as iam not sure what could be the problem here but if its a weak spark then it could be module /coil/crank sensor in that order .These problems will not show up as fault codes i dont think as they are working but not to full efficiency

Did you put the wires back on exactly the same position you took them off ? They only go 1 way correctly.

1987 Nissan 200SX cranks but hard to start

Thats a classic sign of having your engine run too rich. That puffy layer of ash is carbon which means your engine is not burning gas properly or completely which means is misfiring thats why the car is shaking. Try having your oxygen sensors checked and make sure you are using good fuel.

1996 Nissan Sentra doesn't have sparks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to my understanding, 1995 to 1997 Sentras share the same ECU (except the '97 1.6L). Below ECU pin configuration may be of help.
Additionally, depending on the regional version that you have, the '96 Sentra may be sharing the same electronic ignition with an Altima. If so, this might interest you.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
