Unhappy My Jeep turns over but won't start....

The trouble shooting I have done is check sparkplugs for a good spark, which they are, so the next thing i noticed was that the oil pressure is low when trying to start. Am I not getting enough compression for it to start? if so how do i fix it. Thanks.

If you are getting fire to the plugs the next thing to check is the fuel.

I can tell you the oil pressure will be low until the engine starts. Pull a couple spark plugs and then put a few drops of gas in the spark plug hole. Reinstall the plugs and try to start. If the engine sputters like it wants to start, you have a fuel issue.
