My '89 XJ turns over but will not start. Replaced battery and Coil
So, my '89 XJ 4wd 4.0l turns over, but I am not getting a spark from my coil, even though I just purchased one brand new. I also replaced my battery with a new one. My dist. cap is clean and was just replaced before winter....I'm running out of ideas and can't find anything helpful when I search JF...Someone please help me!
That's not going to test it. If it is bad unplugging and plugging it back in won't do anything. It MUST be in working order to run right and will not run without it. IIRC I think you can test the voltage or amperage but I don't remember or know off hand what those numbers should be.
