Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler
I've been in this situation, frustrating as it gets. You have all of the makings of a engine that should run, compression, spark and fuel. If compression is good that's a constant and you can rest that it is ok. You have good gas and spark with that is has to be within the timing of all. You mentioned being number one cylinder on TDC, it is possible to have this and be 180 deg. off (rather then the top of the compression stroke you may be at the top of exhaust stroke) I'd reinvestigate this be certain No. cylinder is on its compresson stroke. If need be remove the valve cover and look at the valves to be certain they are both closed with the piston fully up. I have not worked on this engine so I am uncertain of the lifter type manual or automatic, I raise this fact because I have worked on an engine where as the lifters did not fully fill with oil (had to maunally do this) because the lifters did not fully open the engine would hardly run if at all) something else to look at. Please let me know the results; again I have been in this situation and it seems she should fire right-up but instead your given grey hairs.
Best of luck,
