Question about 1991 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

1988 Jeep Wrangler wont start. I dont have any spark? I recently replaced the gas tank and may have possibly ran the fuel pump out of gas. But I can hear the fuel pump running it just seems to be making a lot of noise. The jeep ran fine then one morning i came out to start it and it just wouldnt fire. took a plug out a found no spark

Try your camshaft possition sensor. If it is the same as my problem I just had to replace that and it started right up. Oh and mine was built into the distributer assembly. Take off cap and pin it's the plastic thing at the bottom. Should just pop out and you have to go to the dealer to get the part. Hopefully this helps!

    Just to add on to this... If your camshaft possition sensor is not functioning properly it will only allow one spark to get through then shuts down ignition system at PCM. So if you are getting one spark this is most likely the cause. Hope it helps!

1988 Jeep Wrangler starting problems. I replaced the ignition module, spark plug wires, coil, distributor module, and my jeep will not start. It gets fuel, turns over, but still not starting. It is a 1988...


you are saying it is getting spark, and fuel, right? If it is getting spark, and fuel in to the throttle body, check compression-make sure the Mass Air Flow sensor is plugged in, and double check your spark-you say you replaced all those ignition items, but do not say that you have spark.

Having a issue with my 1988 Jeep Wrangler starting. At times it will start right up but at other times it will not start at all. It will sputter in when trying to start it but wont turn over. All wires are...


Those 88's run a 2 barrel carb that is notorious for causing minor issues like this. Sounds like your carb and/or fuel filter is clogged...this is common due to the age and rust accumulating inside of the gas tank (normal for older vehicles). When is the last time you have had the carb thoroughly cleaned and/or rebuilt? I'd look there for the problem. If not there, then perhaps your fuel pump is dying and just not able to force enough down the line for idling and driving.

88 wrangler stalling 5 speed 4 cyl


Was there any water in the tank? Has anyone changed the fuel filter? Has anyone checked the ceramic ballast resistor on the drivers fender near the master cylinder?
Has anyone checked the crank sensor output? Did anyone see if it will run if you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body after starting? Are there pulses present at injector? You need to verify these things to get some idea what is going on there.

1991 Jeep Fuel Control Issue


Hey Mudkicker,

Who ever thought of putting an electric fuel pump inside a tank of gas........

Check your other gauges for accuracy. They do that when a ground is loose.

Check the wiring from the fuel tank along the longitudinal frame for frays and shorts. Plugs are secured.

Under the hood, passenger side, check the fuel pump relay. Switch it with one of the others to test it.

Bring the vehicle to an auto parts store. Ask them to break out he code reader. Check for diag codes

Comment me back
Mike.

96 Jeep cherokee ran out of gas, re-fuel, won't start. No spark.


You may have to prime the fuel pump. Or replace the fuel pump if that does not work. Why do you let it run out of gas? This is definately not good for an injected motor. It will continue to cause more and more problems. Fuel injectors should never run dry.

1995 Jeep Wrangler 2.5 4cyl spits and sputters while driving


if you have an electric fuel pump that would explain the hum. unhook your incoming fuel line and blow the line clear, sounds like you've got some junk in your tank.it'll build up on the screen in the tank then fall off (at least partially) when your making turns or hitting bumps or holes. next time it's only got a gallon or so of fuel i'd drop the tank and check the pickup tube inside. sux but that's the only way to get to it. while you've got the tank off and out from under the jeep, might as well clean it out real good and replace anything inside (usually the screen) that doesn't look right, dirty etc. wouldn't hurt to run a bottle of fuel system cleaner in the next full tank of fuel either. preferably as soon as you put your tank back. good luck

1989 Jeep Wrangler Standard wont start


You have to check if this is fuel or spark related. You HAVE to put a filter in the system or the fuel injectors will get clogged. Check for spark first. If you have a good spark at the plugs, then your problem may be fuel related. If uou don't have any spark, then the problem could be a bad crank sensor.

check to see if you can hear the fuel pump running.just cycle the key to the on position but dont turn over the motor you should hear a humming sound come from the fuel tank.if no sound check your fuses if all ok could be a bad fuel pump
or check to see if you have spark if no spak then it could be the module inside your distributor cap.it also controls the fuel pump.
