I go to start the engine and it acts like it wants to start but it just won't turn over, even when I press on the gas it won't start, I can smell gas under the hood and I have very low fuel pressure, I've changed the battery and did a basic tune up and replaced the thermostat, but I can not figure why it won't start, it was running a week ago. Please help me out, I need this jeep because its what gets me to and from work
I have an old 85 Cherokee, and if not started every day, I have to remove the air filter assembly and tap the fuel filter and top of carburetor where the fuel line comes in. Once that is done, I drop a little gas right into the carb and it typically starts up. Once it is running, it is fine. I tried to find a new fuel filter but no one seems to have one in this town! I managed to find a dodge fuel filter that looks similar, so I will install that today and see if it helps my problem.
