jeep wont start. what to do?
i was driving down the interstate a week ago and my jeep lost all the fuel pressure and just stopped. i replaced the fuel pump and filters and it still wont start. when i turn the key on the fuel pump doesnt turn on for the 3 seconds. and now i figured out it is not getting fire to the plugs. i changed the coil and it still wont start. i have to straight wire the fuel pump when i want to try to start it. where do i need to start. i need help!!!

Coil wire


Distributor cap

Rotor button

Bad plugs

Vacuum leaks

Fuel lines

Check all of these things, and if everything is okay, and isn't the problem, might have to take it to a shop and get it looked at. Those are usual the main problems for a Jeep not to start. Hope this helps.

Just seen that there was no fuel pressure. That confuses me, I wouldn't know anything with that. But try my last post and see if anything works. Hope your jeep gets fixed man!!

Does it have spark. If so it's the crank pos sensor. Look it up for info. Cps
