did you clock the distributor properley. sounds like it is a tooth off

busemans 03-01-2012 06:21 PM

its cause you have a 4.0 liter v6. the jeep engine is an I6.

are your spark plug wires on properly? not opposite? maybe you are sparking but when the engine is on the second stroke that is clearing the exhaust out of the chamber?

i tried uploading pics of the rotor and stuff but it wouldnt, i put flywheel on 2nd tooth from bottom and rotor at about 4 oclock right on the number one.

Rusty jeep 03-01-2012 06:27 PM

the timing marks need to be at top dead center on the compreshion stroke. i think the dist needs to be at 5 oclock

mikeaju 03-01-2012 06:29 PM

so it wont even try to start if its a tooth off

Rusty jeep 03-01-2012 06:31 PM

nope mine was a tooth off did the exact same thing. had fuel, fire, no start

mikeaju 03-01-2012 06:33 PM

really this sucks, is there any pics or videos that can help me dude im really dieing here my wife has a job lined up for next mon and we nned that jeep to start.

the haynes manuel, or google this is what i found.holding the centerline of the base slot in the 1 o'clock position Distributor Pre-position - All Engines Continue to engage the distributor into the engine. The rotor and distributor will rotate clockwise during installation. This is due to the helical cut gears on the distributor and camshaft. When the distributor is fully seated to the engine block, the centerline of the base slot should be aligned to the clamp bolt mounting hole on the engine Distributor Engaged Position - 4.0L 6-Cylinder Engine The rotor should also be pointed at the 5 o'clock position.
It may be necessary to rotate the rotor and distributor shaft (very slightly) to engage the distributor shaft with the slot in the oil pump gear. The same may have to be done to engage the distributor gear with the camshaft gear.
The distributor is correctly installed when:
  • the rotor is pointed at the 3 o'clock position (2.5L engine), or at the 5 o'clock position (4.0L engine)
  • the plastic alignment pin (or pin punch tool) is still installed to distributor.
  • the number 1 cylinder piston is set at top dead center (TDC) (compression stroke)
  • the centerline of the slot at the base of the distributor is aligned to the centerline of the distributor holddown bolt hole on the engine. In this position, the holddown bolt should easily pass through the slot and into the engine.

ok i was holding it in the 11 oclock position and the rotor around the 5oclock position but i might be off it jus doesnt make sense that it wont fire at all. thanks for the advice could my problem be anything else?

Rusty jeep 03-01-2012 06:49 PM

not that i can think of did you remove the dist or did it just stop running?

mikeaju 03-01-2012 06:50 PM

it just stopped one morning i my driveway

Rusty jeep 03-01-2012 06:54 PM

did you check the roter ive seen them woller out

mikeaju 03-01-2012 06:57 PM

ya i thought about that but i had spark so i wasnt worried i think i might still be off time like u said now should i be just ahaead or just behind or right on the number one post.

Rusty jeep 03-01-2012 06:59 PM

just a smig ahead

mikeaju 03-01-2012 07:06 PM

ok ill try that its gotta be it idk what else it can be is so irritating.

Rusty jeep 03-01-2012 07:09 PM

it was prob the cam sensor and the timing just got fuged ive done it my jeep sat in the back yard for almost a year i was so fed up with it

mikeaju 03-01-2012 07:24 PM

im hoping i didnt put the cam sensor in wrong but it had a ratainer screw so it can only go one of teo ways is there any pics of that i havent found any of those.

mikeaju 03-01-2012 07:25 PM

and where on the flywheel do i need to have the knoch at i have it on the 2nd to last knoch on the right if your looking at the motor.

mikeaju 03-01-2012 09:11 PM

i need a pic of a cam ensor inside a dist to know if i did it right or if it matters really it can only go one of two ways but it might matter idk

Rusty jeep 03-01-2012 11:15 PM

mikeaju 03-02-2012 06:07 AM
