Jeep Wont Start
First off, I am so glad I finally found a forum for jeeps. I have been looking all over, but I was not fortunate enough until now to stumble upon this great website.
I am having some problems with my 1983 CJ7. I was driving down the road and came to a stop light, all was well until I started to go; as I let off the clutch, it just died on me in the middle of the intersection. I was unable to restart it and had to tow it home.
The motor will turn over, but it will not start. Sometimes when I let off the ignition the engine will cough once right before it stops. I have replaced the Ignition module, Starter Solenoid, Fuel Lines(they needed it anyway), Coil, Ignition Module, and the Spark Plugs. I have also taken apart the carburetor and checked to make sure it was not clogged up or anything, and it looks fine. I also took off the distributor cap and looked at the rotor and the cap, they both looked fine, I cleaned them out and put them back on.
The engine is getting gas, and I am not so sure about the spark, before the battery started going dead, it seemed to be getting a spark every time, but now, it only seems to get a spark when I let off the ignition, but I think that is due to battery dying.
Does anyone have any idea what I should due next? I have been told to check the timing on it, but I do not know how to do that without the jeep running.
Thanks in advance,
