Turn the engine to TDC, so the line on the crankshaft balancer lines up with the zero. (Number one cylinder all the way up, and it should be blowing air with your finger in the spark plug hole on it's way up. This is TDC) Note, make sure you turn it the same direction as when it is running!!!! (Turn it with a socket on the end of the crankshaft, clockwise facing the front of the vehicle) Now with the distributor cap off, the rotor should be pointed at where the number one spark plug wire goes into the cap.

if that distributor has ever been out, it may not line up on #1. check to make sure the coil wire is connected tight on both the coil and the cap.

96 jeep cherokee, inline 6 4.0... runs fine... after shut off (5-10 mins) acts like its chokeing out, wont start acts like its missing, no combustion (fuel injected) let sit for 20 mins, fires up fine......


Try the pick-up coil that is under the distributer cap.Remove the cap and rotor button then remove the plate that is under the rotor button.Next you need to take off the relucter wheel that is in the way so you can take out the bolts and remove the pick-up coil.

Engine dies during drive and wont start up


Check the in line fuel filters. Dirt and debris can clog the filter under vacuum pressure from fuel pump and starve the engine. After the car sits and the vacuum is released, the debris falls away from the filter allowing the fuel to pass thru the filter until it clogs up once again. There are also in tank filters but more than likely the culprit is the inline. They are pretty inexpensive and easy to fix.

Causes for no spark on 94 jeep cherokee please


Well it could be many things, But have you relpaced the dist. cap and rotor, within the last 15,000 miles or wires and plugs??? next step is the coil ? then it gets fun. like timing. but I think most jeeps with a Inline 6 have a bullet proof engine for the most part. As we all know there is plenty of semi's on the road. well the same set up is there. as an Inline Jeep. I would have to say 90% of semi's on the road are inline 6 cyl. engines. and may of them go to 1million miles.
so plugs,wires, cap, rotor and ignition coil. that is a good starting point.

We have replaced all the spark plugs in our 1991 jeep cherokee but dont have the diagram of what plug wire goes where. Can you help me?


Which motor i-6 or v8?
look on the intake for firing order if it's the inline 6 from front to back they are numbers in order 1-6,using the timing marks set the engine at 0degrees on compression stroke and number 1 plug wire will be directly above where the rotor button is at I think the firing order is 135624 from number 1 on cap and going clockwise put the plug wires on the cap to the plugs in that order.
