Why would i have gas in my crank case

I assume you have fuel injected vehicle,so this would be one or more fuel injector staying open ,and allowing fuel in the engine more than likely.If it is a carbureted vehicle,it would be the fuel pump,or the carburetor flooding over into the intake down into the engine

I am doing a motor swap in my 95 jeep grand Cherokee, I am puttin in a 5.2 liter v8 which is what is stock. My question is on my original motor I have one fuel line coming from the rail and on the 94 motor...

to clarify, if i understand correctly your old engine has one fuel line and the replacement has a feed and return line on the fuel rail. if this is the case the usual thing to do would be to use the fuel rail and injectors from the old engine"stock engine pulled from your vehicle" Its not unusal in an engine swap to need to re-use the origianal sensors, harness and fuel system due to design changes from year to year. in your case, the engine going in is a year older than the one being pulled so i would definately use all componets off of the 95 placed on the 94 replacement engine make sure to use the factory harness for the 95 as well. please forgive spelling and grammer long day at the office Good luck let me know if you need any further help!

Wireing from fuel pump runs into car where

A small but important part of your car's engine fuel delivery assembly, the fuel pump relay is an electrical component that controls the pump. Also known as a relay switch, this car part turns your fuel pump on and off when you start your vehicle and shut it off. Everytime you turn on your ignition, the relay switch lets the electrical current flow to the fuel pump. Once both the pump and your engine are running smoothly, the fuel pump relay automatically shuts off. The fuel pump will then be controlled by the oil pressure unit. In case your pump relay stops working, it's the oil pressure switch that will serve as a back-up power relay for the pump. Because the fuel pump relay is switched on everytime you turn on your ignition, you should hear a distinct sound (it could be like a whistling kettle or a blackboard being scraped) whenever you start your car. If you don't hear that distinct sound and your engine takes longer to crank up, you may have a problem with the relay switch. Fortunately, finding a compatible replacement relay for your vehicle is just a few clicks away at Auto Parts Warehouse. When you buy from our site, you can enjoy our free shipping services, low-price guarantee, and flexible payment options. So, if you need to replace your old relay switch for the fuel pump, buy one only from Auto Parts Warehouse!

My '97 ford taurus isnt kicking over while tryn to start it up

Anything done to car, or happened recently that might affect this?
If starter fluid doesn't work, and starter is cranking normally (too fast may point to a timing belt broke, too slow may mean battery run down and not producing sufficient spark), there's still a problem in your ignition. Pull a sparkplug or two. After cranking a little they should be wet with gas. Check for compression while a plug is out: hold your finger over plug hole when cranking. You should feel pressure buildup and release over and over as long as cranking.
A properly timed engine needs spark, fuel, and compression to start. Keep reviewing your procedure. Something is not right.
You may want to have the computer scanned for possible trouble codes. Check plug wires for proper routing. Were plugs gapped right?
