CHECK THE FUSES FIRST. YOU MAY HAVE A BAD ONE. IF THEY CHECK OUT OKAY THEN MAKE SURE YOUR KEY SWITCH IS SENDING POWER TO ALL POINTS. IF YOU DON'T HEAR THE FUEL PUMP THEN PERHAPS THE KEY SWITCH HAS FAILED. YOU MAY STILL BE ABLE TO CRANK THE MOTOR EVEN IF IT HAS FAILED. IF YOUR ENGINE HAS A CRANK POSITION SENSOR, THEN SEE IF YOU ARE GETTING POWER IN AND OUT OF THE SENSOR. I HOPE I HAVE HELPED WITH YOUR CAR'S ISSUE. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT AND TO KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK

1988 4 cylinder will crank but not fire


with 126,000 mi if the timing belt has not been changed it is broken.
This is not an interference engine (the valves don't get bent when the belt fails) Fairly easy fix.

My 1988 jeep grand cherokee stalls after running for a short while then wont restart for at least 15 minutes


I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing?
The basics, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

Car started and ran fine, quit while driving and now there is no spark and turns over.


Hello first of all

In reading your issue at hand not having no spark there is only a few things that can cause this being that its a 1988 car i will list below what you need to go over and check.

1.spark plug wires
2. distributor cap
3. ignition rotor
4. coil pick up
5. faulty distributor

That being said most are a easy and cheap fix plug wires run about 20-35 bucks autozones duralast brand , distributor cap runs between 7-18 bucks , ignition rotor 3-8 bucks , coil pick up about 15-30 bucks all at autozone.

Now there is no real way to tell if there bad but a good examination of the distributor cap and rotor should tell you corroded inside cracked worn down.

i would start with distributor cap , ignition rotor, coil pick up if the car starts after this replace spark plugs wires. If that does not fix it most likely you distributor is faulty itself.

i hope it helps if so could you leave me so 4 thumbs up feedback thanks so much

88 f 15- wont start have change coil, rotor, cap, plugs, fuel pumps, computer been working to get truck going 4 days no luck.


You need to see if you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Do you have any spark at coil and if you do is there spark at plug wire? If no spark at either check the ignition module and pickup coil.
