Two ways to deal with that. You can get a long screwdriver and turn the oil pump drive in the engine or, get the distributor in as far as it will go, then while holding light pressure on it, turn the engine by hand 'till it drops down the rest of the way. Then, re-check to make sure you have the rotor aligned correctly. (pulley back to "0" and rotor pointing to #1 on the cap...may take two turns of the crank to get there)

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 !!
