2002TJ Back in '77 I bought a brand new Dodge van with 318 engine and auto tranny.....10 miles from dealership the distributor shaft ate it's way upwards thru the cap..really, the whole shaft forced it's way up and destroyed the cap and rotor and yanked plug wires off.

I coasted into a parking spot in Kittery Maine right in front of a parts store. They sold my poor ass a new distributor cap and rotor and wires and lent me tools and timing light to install it back to dealer just before closing time and they blew me off cause i was young and stupid and they didn't fix it under warranty.

This Jeep is the first Chrysler product I've owned since....No complaints

crallscars had a simular problem, and was directed to replacing the "Distributor Plate" It's inside the distributor where the points use to be, very easy to replace, and a comon problem.

rigchaser Mine was the Crank Positioning sensor. No engine code? Located below your brake pedal where block and bell housing meet. Easy to replace. If thats the issue.
