If you are getting a good stream of fuel then you need to see if there is spark. Simple enough, pull one spark plug wire and insert a screw driver into it, make for sure you are only touching the plastic or rubber handle hold part of the metal on the screw drivers shaft near something metal on the car. If it is producing a white spark you are good. If not then check the alternator, it could have a short.
Then I check the plugs. If they are bad it would make it run rough, but they would have to be really bad to keep it from starting at all.
If you have fuel and fire the only problem left is timing. For this you need a timing light. Find the timing mark on the front of the crankshaft. (lower pulley) then hook up the light and clamp to number one cylinder. If it is in time, has fuel and fire then the only answer left is that you have some major problems with the top end.
TO REPLACE SPARK PLUGS YOU REMOVE COIL PACK MOUNTING BOLTS THEN REMOVE THE COIL PACK WITH BOOT OVER THE SPARK PLUG.YOU HAVE 6 INDIVIDUAL COIL PACK TO EACH CYLINDER. YOU NEED A 3/8 RATCHET WRENCH - LONG 3/8 EXTENSION -SPARK PLUG SOCKET - SPARK PLUG GAUGE.AND TORQUE WRENCH.THE 2000 MODEL JEEPS FUEL FILTER INSIDE THE TANK.1993 - 1996 MODEL JEEPS FUEL FILTER LOCATED LEFT SIDE OF THE VECHICLE NEAR THE FUEL TANK.
First of all, the fuel pump is generally located in the fuel tank, not always though. Yours probably is, in did not research it. The fuel electric fuel pump turns on only when the ignition key switch is turned to the start position and then left on. A series of one or two relays along with a pressure monitor in the fuel rail delivery system may or not cycle it on and off depending on design. Enough of that. I suggest that you remove the spark plugs to see if they are oil/heavy cabon deposits.If so, professional attention is reguired. One more thing you could try is replacing the spark plug wires. the may be old/worn out/damage. This would give the engine spark a stronger spark,if worn and also replace the spark plugs.
did you give them the vin when you bought the ignition,it has to be the one for your car,also might have to relearn the key to the computer,turn key on try to start let go and leave in on position for 10 minuites turn off for 5 seconds,turn back on try to start let go leave for 10 minuites,turn off for 5 seconds ,repeat one last time,takes a little over 30 minuites,to complete,the car thinks your trying to steal it and is disableing the fuel pump
Spark to plugs is great?.....but if they are black (carbon coated) it may not start. Crank her over and use that choke for 30 seconds. Pull the plugs ...are they wet with gas?Smell it....is it water or gas. They should be wet with something. Are they dry.........No fuel.
If they are wet with gas and NOT black carbon coated and you are SURE you have spark..........time to tow it to start. You want to turn the engine fast enough to have the crank throw oil onto the cyl walls. Engines need a oil coated cyl wall to run....to seal the rings.The gas from flooding the engine washes the oil away.Put it back and it should fire up.After the first start...it should be OK. I've started many a engine that others could not start (flooded or sitting for years) with a little oil in each cyl to seal it.....but towing is the better choice if possible.
We have a 1996 Grand am SE 6 cyl with similar problem. If yours is a 6 cyl check your crank sensors. There are 2 of them, one behind the Vibration damper and one on the back of the block that has a yellow / purple wire to the Ignition Control Module. Haynes manual electrical diagram call this one an Ignition Timing Sensor, but it is a Crank Sensor at the parts stores. I would check this one first. You should also check your coils and Ignition Switch and Knock Sensor. You can get a Haynes repair manual from Advanced auto that will explain how to test these items. Good Luck.
