I am confused a little..
I was kind of wondering if you had mixed up a valet key with the chipped key.. I did that and it took a while to realize it.. cranked but did not start.

mickeygriffin I ordered the one from AM auto parts online for right under 90 (with gasket). With all the troubleshooting I had to do afterwards, I do believe Im qualify enough to say that Ima TJ manifold expert! lol

mickeygriffin Bro(s) I give.... It's going to the shop!!
09-02-2012 02:31 PM
steveo8x8 Ya the battery is probably ur best bet!
09-02-2012 12:54 PM
jasongreene43 Always disconnect your battery before working on or around electronic components.
Try to disconnect the bat and see if it resets.
09-02-2012 12:36 PM
mickeygriffin Wait... would the alarm be factory? I see no signs of one. It cranks but wont start. I feel like im not getting fuel or spark.
09-02-2012 12:32 PM
mickeygriffin I dont have an alarm. Ive jumped to too btw. Im bout to roll this beesh next!
09-02-2012 12:21 PM
steveo8x8 Try jumping it. It cant hurt to give it a shot. Do u have an alarm system?
08-30-2012 05:18 PM
mickeygriffin So I know now that Im not getting fuel. Also... (Im gonna fell very dumb if this is the problem) I wondering if I have enough power on my batt to start up. I had my radio going the entire install which was 2hrs maybe.

It cranks (turn over) but wont start. I was extra careful to pay atten to detail of where everything went. Im looking into fuel related issues now. I dont get it. BTW... If i spray started fluid into the TB it tries to crank.

steveo8x8 Does ur jeep have an alarm system?? Mine has one and u have to push a button hidden under the dash to allow it to start if u ever disconnect the battery

mickeygriffin So i finally got around to installed the mani this morning. Pretty simple process with the exception of now my jeep wont start. And suggestions? My dad said that timing for the old mani may have been adjusted so the engine would run so bad... Go figure..
08-24-2012 02:37 AM
VickyInmano I read very good reviews about it on another sight.
08-24-2012 02:37 AM
steveo8x8 no problem.. good luck with it. pm me if u have any questions

The ones I got from the parts store either wouldnt seal around the exhaust ports, or some of the extra holes/ports would leak....generally just a bad casting. the one from the dealer didnt have extra/universal hole/fittings and fit like new. Some Jeeps dont seem to like aftermarket parts..

But im no expert, and if that did work im sure everyone would be doing it.
