HeepoJeep I hit ice last January and it flipped 2.5 times. It landed on the passenger side then sat there for about two hours. I tried starting it the day after the accident and got the same results I have now. The battery was drained about a week later. I put a new battery in but it died in the same amount of time, so there's a short somewhere. It's been sitting in the driveway ever since. Apart from the body damage the front track bar/axle brackets got bent pretty bad. Today I'm going to test the fuel pump relay and see if the spark plugs are even doing anything.

Jerry Bransford If it was upside down long enough for oil to leak into the combustion chambers, it's entirely possible the cranking the engine bent a connecting rod. Like water, oil doesn't compress.

Wondertwin1 Well. Please explain how you flipped it first.


Next, how long did it sit on it's side/upside down
Next, how long did you let it sit right side up before starting?
Next, any significant damage anywhere to electronics or anything?

can't start the rock

I flipped my Jeep a little while ago and haven't been able to get it running since. It cranks and knocks a couple times but never fully turns over. All I've done is change the spark plugs. I checked the bleeder valve on the fuel rail and fuel comes out but it's not under any pressure. I'm clueless when it comes to motor work, so uh.... HELP!
