Question about 1997 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Just changed the clutch on my 98 wrangler now the starter is killing the battery trying to turn it over. Is there a easy fix for this? Changed clutch, throwout, pilot bearing and rear seal.

    Disengages fine, was able to drive (after I got it started) but It is very hard to start (as if the starter is dragging). Could the starter have gone bad? or maybe somethuinge else?

Did you get your slave cylinder blead? does the tranny disengage when you push in the clutch?

    i dont think that it had shims, maybe you just need to clean contacts. other than that, if it was fine before the clutch install, make sure your mating sufraces are clean. meaning, your starter isnt wedged against something.

I havent been having any problems but when I try to start my jeep,it's not turning over at all.I have lights..I had the battery checked at a Parts store and it's good.It won't boost off but I can push it...

You should have a switch on the clutch pedal under the dash. easy to test,,,just jump across it and see if it starts (only with trans in neutral and your foot on the clutch because it can start in gear when jumped) You also have a relay in the power distribution center and a fuse as well. Relay test is simple...most of the relays are the same so just swap positions. You should also check to make sure power is getting to the starter...12v at main connection and 12v at the small connection with the key turned to the start position (again in neutral and at least have the brake on) If you have power at the starter, likely it has failed. Don't forget...ignition switch needs to be working as well.

Have a1997 jeep wrangler that wont start changed ignition could it be my starter

Yes it could be the starter, it could be the battery if the engine doesn't turn over, it could be a grounded power line to the starter. Even if the battery is showing proper volts it may not have the amperage to turn the motor over, it could be the solenoid itself. I recommend you 1. try jumping the vehicle. If the engine cranks when jumped but not without a jump then replace your battery. If not I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle for all of the troubleshooting and isolating steps.

1993 jeep wrangler turns over but will not crank. does clutch have to be pushed down to crank?

a faulty neutral sw on the clutch keeps the engine from turning over .... your car probably has starter a relay/solenoid somewhere close to the battery, from which the intial engine electricity comes, and goes to starter and firing system. if the is faulty then no spark.....good luck

Engine will not turnover

If there is no power coming IN to the starter relay - the ignition module has failed.
Replace the Ignition.

I have a 4 cylinder 93 Jeep Wrangler. I recently

There should be a bleeder screw on your slave cylinder for your clutch. Loosen it. Cut a piece of vacuum line hose off your old motor (unless you have some) and stick it on the bleeder screw, and the other end in a clear glass bottle, with a few inches of brake fluid in it. Then, pump your clutch until there are no more bubbles coming out of the hose. Hold the clutch down, and tighten the bleeder screw. You should have clutch.
As for your starter, i'm not sure how the safety switch works on those, but maybe it's because your clutch isn't working. The switch isn't working because of the clutch situation.
If not that, then you must have a wire on wrong, or the starter on wrong, or something is loose.

98 jeepwrangler won't start

This is basic, but first off, try to shift it into neutral, and try to start it. It is easy for the linkage to get out of adjustment, where it thinks the jeep is in gear. If that does not work, make sure you have battery power to the ignition and starter.
