|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.|

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!
