I'm just going to guess here. but your description reminded me of something that happens
fairly often.
Remove the gas cap and smell the gasoline. Does it possibly smell like diesel fuel? Oily?
Because if it IS diesel fuel, have the gas tank flushed and the fuel lines flushed out completely. Don't drive it.
Then you will be able to save your engine. That is, if there is diesel fuel in it.
Sometimes the wrong fuel in put into the tanks at a gas station. Sometimes people put diesel fuel into a gasoline engine. I hope I've helped.
Have an otherwise Happy New Year.
Best,
Mark

95 Jeep Gr. Cher, rear pass window won't roll-up.


If you inspect the harness, it really does not matter what the wire color is if the wire is damaged, repair it
Any broken wires are not a good thing. Also check the wires for the door that has the problem as well. The master switches on jeeps are poorly made and sometimes replacing it will help...I use scrapyard parts for that. A test light and decent voltmeter are very helpful in finding and verifying voltage in wires.

My jeep wont stay running.


Jeep has an anti theft system that will actuate if the battery goes dead or if the battery is replaced. You may just have to unlock the driver's side door with the key. This sounds weird but I have seen this on a couple of vehicles. My brothers 1993 jeep would start and imediatly stop after running the battery down while listening to the radio all night. While jumpstarting the jeep we ran into this problem and He solved it when he unlocked the driver's side door with the key.
I have also seen this in a 2005 Nissan pickup truck where a man at a gas station had just got his truck and for some reason his security system would not let his truck start it. It would not even fire when he was trying to start his truck' I remembered the situation with the Jeep and sure enough when he unlocked his driver's side door he was able to start his truck. I do not know what caused his truck to do that to him.
