Hey all,
I've got a 1999 wrangler, 5 speed manual 4cyl. I got in today to turn it on and it wouldn't turn over. It would act like it wanted to but then all I would hear was a combination clicky/grinding sound. I went ahead and (in neutral) tried to feed it some gas as I started it and it would turn right over, and stay on as long as I fed it gas. The second I let off the gas it wouldn't idle and stalled right out ( neutral).

Maybe the fuel pump...alternator? The fact that it will turn on (if even just moment) makes me think that it isn't the fuel pump or the alternator....any thoughts?
