Electrical issue
'89 sahara, 4.2, weber 34. This has happened 2 times now. Jeep runs ok, but when I shut it off, and try to restart, there's no spark. Today I checked spark coming from the coil, and going to the coil, and nothing. If it sits for a short time, it starts right up. Any suggestions? I'm not the best at electrical.

coil break down
sounds to me like the coil is breaking down when it gets hot!!!
I'm not to familiar with Sahara's but i am sure you'll find either the coil it-self or if it has a module under the coil it is shot next time spray some brake cleaner on the coil ( it cools it) wait till it evaporates 10 sec then try to re-start it if it starts then like I said the coil/modual is breaking down when it's hot
hope it helps :punk:
