Its simple, I was driving and as I was approaching a stop sign I noticed my Jeep starting to "stall" (its an automatic) and that was the end of it. I thought my fuel pump went out, so I replaced that. It turns over but wont start. Check to make sure I have fuel and correct pressure. My spark plugs are all sparking. Distributor cap is on time. Relays all still working. It turns and turns and turns but wont start. The only possibility I can think of is that the timing chain somehow jumped teeth. I got nothing guys, any insight?
Heres my report from the dirty dozen.....
The Brain.... Its worth a shot just havent had time yet
Grounds....worth a try
PDC....checked and cleared
Battery and Cables........needs a good cleaning
Fuel quality....looks and smells good
Fuel Pressure......at spec
Secondary Ignition... Fine
Connection....It doesnt run so I cant try it. But it wasnt running poorly before it dies except for the 2 minutes prior.
Wiring.....Anything like that should set a check engine light
Throttle body....Shouldnt cause it to completly not run
Restricted Exhaust....cut exhaust before the cadalytic converter...no change
But this list gives me other things to check as well
I think you are giving your Check Engine Light too much credit ... faulty wiring will not always set a CEL. Also, I think most people on this forum who have had problems with weak/failing Crankcase Position Sensors did not have a CEL.

The last MOPAR part I received had stamped in big bold letters, "MADE IN CHINA". You cannot escape ...
