The computer will take care of timing in conjunction with the knock sensor. Check fuel pressure and the filter. Make sure the filter is not plugged and causing a restriction and drop in pressure. Let me know about the fuel and we can move forward.

1996 Jeep Cherokke 5.2 grand laredo, missing on acceleration found loose distributer need to set timing.


Base (initial) ignition timing is NOT adjustable. Do not attempt to adjust ignition timing by rotating the distributor. All ignition timing functions are controlled by the Powertrain Control Module.Adjusting the timing on a Jeep Grand Cherokee requires special tools and an understanding of engine mechanics. Changing the timing on a Jeep Grand Cherokee with distributor-less ignition requires professional reprogramming of the powertrain control module. This guide covers Jeep Grand Cherokee models with distributed ignition only. you can go to this site and it will explain it. www.ehow.com/how_4521340_adjust-timing-jeep have a good day !!

If the distrubutor is definatley installed correctly, as you have some one crank the engine turn the distributor sightly counert clock-wise and clock-wise until the engine fires up. Then set the timing with a light. Double check the wires are in the correct position on the dist in relation to spark plug/cylinder places.

Set timiing


You have a "locked" distributor. There is no adjustment. All timing "decisions" are made by the computer after reading the info from the sensors on the engine. Ones that influence timing most are the throttle position sensor and Manifold air pressure (MAP) sensor, though all play a part.

No fire to coil from coil on 96 model Jeep Grand Cherokee.


You need to put the harmonic balance for the 96 jeep on this motor,then put the crankshaft sensor on for the 96 jeep on the vehicle,this should fix you up.The crankshaft sensor and the harmonic balance have to go together.If I can be further help,let me know.>>roniecon@gmail.com
