1989 jeep grand wagoneer--no gas getting to carb.--

This GW was a recent purchase. I was in transit home when the wagoneer suddenly lost power. The car will start, but will shut off again immediately afterwords. I thought this was an electrical problem, however, my mechanic states that all the electrical factors check out The mechanic determined that no gas is getting to the carb. Is this a fuel pump problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Before replacing the fuel pump try disconnecting the gas line and turning the motor....does gas pump out consistantly??(remember this is gas and take the proper precautions) then check or change the fuel filter, you dont say if its the 4 cyl or 6 cyl ...6cyl carb can develop a problem like this, i know used to own a jeep eagle wrecking yard., if both gas flow is good, filter is good then its carb or ignition. .... easy

That may be right - no gas in the carb is likely a bad fuel pump, or a clogged fuel filter.

1989 jeep grand wagoneer 360 how do i test bad crankshaft position sensor

double posted, now with 360, 5.9L V8 fact.
and has no such sensor.
its a CARB car
with ICM , spark magic box. , NO ECU /PCM brain in car
there for no CKP sensors.. sorry?

if you dont know what is there, photo it and post it
so others can see what is missing or wrong, from factory day 1 build.

i google for you
rockauto shows no such part in 360 same
hell. even the 90s the same.
see it here.
all schematics

if engine wont start. even with test fuel, check spark
see the spark section below, under ignition.

the distributor has cam sensor. not crank.
it called today, CMP, cam sensor
this sensor sends signals to the ICM the ICM then makes spark
buy driving the coil,
the CMP is more like Points, simulation, and lasts near for ever.

the 89 4L has a CKP (crank sensor) and is know to fail on brand new cars. (you need to tune it to make work , back in 88/89) at flywheel.
ask me how in know./././??

360 spark
CMP >>>>> ICM>>>> COIL>>> Dizzy cap>>> spark plugs.
this is the chain of events.
the DIZZY does the ADVANCING with ICM. totally. on this car.

It rolls when put in park and wont start-1989 jeep grand wagoneer

Sounds to me like the shifter cable/linkage is out of adjustment. There should be an adjustment nut on the drivers side of the transmission. I'm sorry that I can't tell you which way to adjust it, either in or out.
