1991 Renegade won't start
Have a 91 renegade, it has not been driven for a couple years... Replaced fuel filter, pump, plugs and wires... It will turn over but not start...

Ok you need to narrow down the problem. Either you don't have spark or fuel. Take a plug out ground it to the block, crank the engine see if it sparks. Don't hold the plug down, nasty shock will result. As for fuel system what engine do you have?

Check the spark. Check that your getting gas at the fuel rail. That's the easy stuff.

Worst case, your engine computer died. It's easy to swap, if expensive.

Good news is that the fact that your YJ is a Renegade means nothing for any parts difference in this area.

Without a doubt drain the old gas in the tank.

+1 to draining the old gas. You could see if it fires a little with some starting fluid shot past the throttle body.
