ya i'm pretty stumped as to why mines not starting. Just installed a new pump and filter cause I was under the impression that was why it wasn't starting, but it still hasn't solved my problem. Pulled the fuel lines off at the rail and cranked it and nothing was coming out. It's a 4.0 and hopefully whatever is causing this doesnt involve dropping the tank again....big pain. Any advice will do, just wanna get this damn thing running.
Could be a computer problem, try this to check: turn on the key and listen do you hear the fuel pump prime? if not leave the key on and keep listening if you hear relays starting to click then the fuel pump primes, it is two capacitors on your computer board that cost less than 5 bucks and if you can solder you can replace them yourself. It may take a couple minutes before the relays start to click so grab a beer turn the key on and just sit there and listen. If this is the problem do a search on some forums for ecm problems and there are some detailed instructions out there on how to fix this. It is a very common problem.
I just replaced the fuel pump and filter. When you take off the air handler and look at the injector, it is not dropping any fuel out of the injector, but I can hear a small gurgling sound coming from within the throttle body.
I the Jeep has been sitting it will crank right up, but if you turn it off it won't start. It seems to be flooding out.
Might be a fuel regulator? Anyone have any thoughts.
I seem to have this same problem on my 1993 Wrangler. Last night I was really low on gas and then seemed to have run out of gas. Had to pay $10 for a stupid 1 gallon can. Put that in and still no start. Put a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in. It turned over for a second, it seemed, then died. Got another gallon of gas, put it in, still no luck. Put another bottle of fuel injector cleaner in, and for a second thought it was starting, but no. Checked all the fuses under the dash and also the ones in the box by the battery. All test ok for continuity. Then I realized I wasn't hearing the "buzz" sound of the fuel pump? when turning the key to On. Bled the test port valve on the fuel rail, VERY tiny bit of air came out. Tried to start, sound same as when i had put the bottles of injector cleaner in, no luck. I then noticed a small plastic air? hose, near the fuel rail, completely severed. One end goes into the top, rear of the cylinder head, 6 inches behind the oil cap. And the other end goes to a sensor. Looking in the book, it seems to be the sensor next to the Manifold Air Temperature Sensor. Taped it up best I could, but still no start. After 6 hours in the parking lot, exhausted, I left it on the street and trekked home.
Read another thread that said to check the fuel pump ground by the emergency brake. But where is that? By the brake pedal? or where the emergency brake goes into the rear drum?? I can't seem to find the fuel pump either? On my old (87) YJ, it was in the engine compartment. Where is it on my 93? Also can't see to see where the book tells me the name of the sensor that severed air hose goes to?
So my Jeep still won't start. I've tried replacing the fuses under the dash. I tested all the fuses (except the square block type) in the box by the battery for continuity and they are good. I noticed the block fuse labeled "horn" and the one next to it labeled "fuel pump" were identical. So I swapped them. The horn still worked, but still no buzz/prime sound from the fuel pump when I turn the key to On. And it still does not start. I put about 5 more gallons of gas in and turned the key to On, leaving it there for like 1 or 2 mins, hoping maybe the fuel pump would pull the fuel. But nothing. I am at a loss. I did take down the error code message numbers(after doing the thing where you turn the key to On, then Off, then back on..about 7 times). And the series of numbers for the code is: 1 2 3 3 5 5. How do I find out what error this code represents? And any other ideas for things for me to try? Help? =o/
Thanks, the page doesn't load. But I found the codes elsewhere. Mine is code 33. And i DO have an AC. So apparently the code is for the 02 sensor. But talking to a Jeep dealer, they said the 02 sensor error code is totally separate and not the cause of my issue. To review, I turn the key to On and NO familiar hum from the fuel pump. But instead, 1 single click(I presume from the relay in the box by the battery). No fuel reaching the injectors. Is this a candidate for the 3 capacitors in the ECU?
Other possible thoughts: Crank sensor(on bell housing?), Air flow sensor(dunno where?), Ignition control module(dunno where?), wire harness to the ECU? Recheck the fuel pump ground strap where it is connected to the frame(rear driver wheel?)
hey guys im havin a simalar problem i have a 92 wrangler 2.5l and i was driving it around the yard when it kinda spit and spuder then quit so i thought gas! put gas in still nothing i can hear my pump prime and im geting fuel at the rail so my next guess was ignition! pulled a plug and wasnt getin spark so i checked cap and rotor seemed fine! so i left it 4 the day! came back next day and it fired rite up ran 4 about 10 min then quit. so i asked a buddy and he said coils sometimes get hot the screw up so i put a coil on the next day then same thing ran 4 a few min then quit???????? im kinda lost. i went and got a haines manuel and they say something about a crankshaft position sensor so i went and priced 1 and they want like a 150 bucks 4 it and thats at cost so was wondering if anyone could help me thanks gord
I keep a crank sensor, cam sensor and coil in my box for spares. Those are really the only things that can go wrong with the ignition, unless the ECM goes out. My cam sensor gave me the same symptoms as you have. It is in the distributor and easy to swap out. That would be my guess as my coil and crank sensor both killed the Jeep permanently, the cam sensor was intermittent.
The cam sensor is located under the distributor cap. Remove the cap, then the rotor, and there will be a black plastic piece which covers the innards of the rest of the distributor. That is the cam sensor, it will have a wire or two coming off of it. Call your local parts stores for prices, the price you saw for the crank sensor seemed quite high.
Edit: Sometimes I throw parts at my Jeep instead of properly diagnosing it. If I guess wrong, then the good old parts go in the bag. I also save plugs, wires, cap and rotor. The plugs got a 3.0 Toyota off the hill one night, even though it ran like poop.
try taking the gas cap off i have a 93 yj with the 2.5 in it and im having problems as well i have replaced many a sensors and i have extremely high fuel pressure at the rail and it will randomly stall on me as well i have found if i take the gas cap off and relive the pressure in the tank it will start right up im going to check my fuel regulator and see if that fixes the problem and the return line
