    have you checked for spark out of the coil?

    Have you removed the distributor cap and checked for water in the distributor?

    The new coil I had bought from OReileys turned out to be bad. Turned it back and got another one and it was running like a top. Thank you for your suggestions. I was sure it was the coil, but didn't expect the replacement to be defective.

    Its possible that some sensor or harnesses stay wash and make some short or damage with this last job. Initially, I could think that your engine turns over but won't start, with one additional no fire condition from coil.

    In other same conditions, scanning the PCM (computer) the code 54 was showed, then just already replaced Crank Position Sensor and coil for damaged with water.

    I suggest check and dry all engine, sensor and harnesses, scanned the PCM and work according with this results.

    Keep us updated.

My 1991 jeep wrangler will not start. Engine turns over fine. The engine is getting fuel and has fire to the spark plugs. I have already changed the distributor (cap and pop up coil), plugs, plug wires,...


Check the timing to ensure it is correct.
Check each cylinder for the proper compression.
Try starting the jeep with some starting fluid. If it starts with the starting fluid, you may have a few bad injectors, or faulty injector wiring harness.

I got a1989 jeep wrangler its go a new coil and a new pick up in the distrubitor will still not get fire to plugs


Has the coil wire been replaced? Is the rotor turning in the distributor when the engine is cranked? I'm assuming you have a 2.5 L engine.

1990 jeep wrangler has no spark


I think what you have is an in-between model for which I have no good information. Do a coil test using an ohmeter...(regardless of what it's on a coil is a coil) If it fails, replace it. Also check to see what is used to trigger the coil. there is likely a trigger in the distributor and a control module (possibly mounted next to the coil). sorry I dont't have better info...it happens sometimes.

1991 JEEP WRANGLER WONT START


Take the distributor cap have someone crank the car and look if rotor turns, look at rotor conditions, I am sure that you have replaced it, hot wire from positive on the battery to positive on the coil, if car starts after you have a problem on the key, Is it fuel getting to the injectors? after You replaced so many things,if your rotor is not turning when You crank the engine, your timing chain must be defective or timing gear,

Intermitent starting


sometimes the ais(automatic idle speed) valve gets loaded with
carbon. its an easy fix. you have to remove the throttle body
invert it and you will see the ais chamber and look in and see if it is
built up with soot. carb cleaner should work.if you can remove
the valve for better cleaning. peterjai
