Not starting!!
 
I have a 92 jeep wrangler yj and I was driving down the road and all of a sudden my jeep went dead. Pulled off to the side of the road cranked but wouldnt start. Waited about 5 minutes it started up and drove it straight home. After I shut it off it would crank but wouldnt start up again, been about 4 days and still not starting. A few months back it did the same thing after I had it parked for a couple weeks, but started up and shut off on its own after idling for about 5 minutes and wouldnt start back up again. A week later it started up and worked fine for a couple months up to recently....What the heck could it be? anyone ever go through this problem before? :confused:

Pour a little fuel/gumout/starting fluid into the throttle body and see if it fires and runs briefly. If it does, there is a problem with your fuel delivery. If it does not, you are not getting any spark. Let us know, and we can help you from there.

12 is normal (battery disconnect within the last 12 starts, even if it has been much longer than that). 17 is your issue. I recommend replacing the entire distributer as opposed to just the sensor as a rebuilt dizzy includes this sensor and does not cost that much more.

Yes do the distributor and not just the sensor. The sensor in them tend to not be bad out of the box as often also. You also need to test the temp sender on the thermostat housing to make sure it is good since your computer thinks your engine is never hitting operating temp.

Ok sorry it took so long to update my issue but anyways I went ahead and changed out the whole distributor and still no luck. I keep hearing about the crank shaft sensor, tends to be a problem. Is this the next issue I should look into?

fuel system ecu fuse in the fuse box next to my battery was found with some rust on it, cleaned it up, plugged it back in and it started right up. eventually replaced it but glad it was a quick fix

Hey Gonzo, you might want to invest in some dielectric grease and put it on all your fuses. If you had one bad it is a safe bet the others are bad too.
