Spin the spark plug wire on the sprark plug, a few times left to right, and then firmly pull on the wire boot straight out from the plug and it should come out. If the wire gets damaged when removing it from the plug, you will have to replace that plug wire.

I have a 1997 grand jeep Cherokee can u please tell me why the injectors will pulse and the coil not I have replaced the coil, cam sensor and crank sensor please help me thanks


I have no idea what you are asking. Start with are you getting fuel . Can you here the pump in the tank for about 5 seconds after you turn key on? Look down where carburetor would be is gas squirting in there when you turn the key and crank. Take off a spark plug wire off plug put an old plug in the wire brake of the bottom electrode and hold it 1/4 inch away from an engine bolt or ground and have some one crank engine should have blue spark.

Spark plug wire position on distributor cap


1-5-3-6-2-4
ALL Jeep 4.0 motors use this firing order. Any year, any model, high output or not.

Also, the spark plug wire placement on the cap, in a clockwise direction from the post nearest the engine block is: 6-2-4-1-5-3.(to the left side of the number 6 post, there should be a hold downscrew or strap for fastening the distributor cap to the distributor.

1997 jeep cherokee 4l will not start on petrol or lpg


Here are a couple of things that could be causing your problem. 1. Bad ignition coil or ignition module 2. Clogged fuel filter 3. Clogged air filter 4. Clogged fuel injectors 5. Bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and /or rotor. 6. Broken timing chain/belt. Here are a few things you can try to verify that you have a good spark. 1. Remove the distributor cap and crank the car. If the rotor turned you're ok. If it doesn't turn then that's you're problem and you will probably need to change a timing belt/chain. 2. Check the spark from the ignition coil by pulling the coil wire from the center of the distributor. Use an alligator clip to attach a short wire to the coil wire contact. Bare the other end of this short wire and set it up so it's sitting very close to the engine block. Turn off the lights and try to start the car. You should see a spark jump from this wire to the block. If you don't see a spark it's likely your ignition module or ignition coil is bad. 3. If you have a spark maybe it's not getting to the plugs. You may need to replace the distributor cap and rotor. You can test if the plugs are sparking by pulling one, re-attaching the spark plug wire and seeing if you get a spark when you try to start the engine in the dark. Please note, the metal threads of the spark plug need to be shorted to the engine block to complete the circuit during this test.
