Engine Bay caught fire - 97 TJ
Hi!! Sorry if this is in the wrong section. Lastnight, I was in my garage, and I went to start my jeep, and it made a weird clicking noise, then when it turned on, the RPM's shot up like the throttle was stuck. I immediately turned it off, and opened the hood, and inspected the throttle cable and TB. I tried to start it again - this time it just made the clicking noise, then I heard a small sound, similar to what it sounds like when a gas stove burner turns on. I get out (hood was up blocking my view) to find my engine compartment completely up in flames!!! I ran and got a fire ext. and put it out as fast as I could. Afterwards I noticed that one of my fuel injectors was burned and the cable was disconnected from it - not sure if it blew off, was loose, etc. Upon a quick inspection, none of the wiring seems to have been damaged. I am going to investigate it more thoroughly tonight and tomorrow - my question (finally!!) is - is there anything specific I should check first that will not allow my jeep to function properly. I'm not a mechanic by trade, but I do my own work, so I feel comfortable in checking things out, I just have never dealt with an engine fire before and wanted to just check with the forum to see if there is anything/anywhere I should direct my attention to first. - Sorry for the long read.
