I started up my jeep and drove it fine. parked over night. Next day, it turns over but will not run. I replaced plugs, disttributer cap and rotor. Still will not run just turns over and over.

I'm going to assume you are pressing the brake pedal, right :-) ? If so, it's the switch that normally would indicate that the brake pedal is pressed that's bad. You need to replace that switch (or could be a relay or fuse too, check your fuse box)

have diagnostic codes checked to see if you have a cam or crank sensor fault. make sure fuel pressure is at the required pressure, just testing to see if you have fuel at the valve is not enough. replace all spark plug wires. if you replaced two then all are just as old and even when they "look good" does not qualify as "they are good". Replace coil pack. start up drive away happy

have you replaced the oil sending unit. and check the wire to it, and also i would give the engine a oil pressure test while the sending unit is out, if you have good oil pressure then, i wouldn't worry about oil pump, i would still consider replacing the oil sending unit.

I think you should check your battery and alternator.If they both check good you may have a battery draw,something draining the battery over night.Check your doors make sure they are closing like they should.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start


Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.
