  1. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I am at a loss because I cannot seem to find the right info. Alternator correct and good. Battery charged and good. Starter correct and good. Every single time I try to start this 1996 ZJ 5.2, it clicks once, sometimes twice, and then all power is cut. I let it rest for sometimes 2 minutes, and...
  2. Engines & Drivetrain
    Hi so my WJ 4.0 is converted to a tractor with a electronic box that just shuts the power to my fuel rail when it detects speeds over 18mph and rev limits it while still to about 3k rpm so that might help with diagnosing the issue so when I start it it instantly dies sometimes and it’s about...
  3. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Hi Everyone! A little background here: I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 with about 170k Miles on it that has been sitting for a year. I had bought a brand new Wrangler and wasn't around much this past year, so now I am trying to figure out why I can't get it to start. Before buying the new...
  4. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi! I appreciate any suggestions on where to begin troubleshooting. Yesterday drove the Jeep about 10 miles then when I went to leave right after I pulled out it started acting like it was running out of gas so I turned around and parked it. Gas gauge doesn't work but I had just filled up a week...

    I've been rebuilding a 1976 Cj5, I6 4.2L for the past year. I've finally reached the monumental moment of starting the engine. Of course, it simply won't start. I'll list what it does/doesn't do below. If anybody has any experience with similar conditions, please chime in. Engine -turns over...
  6. Engines & Drivetrain
    Drove the jeep to a park. Tried to leave and it cranks, but won't start. Smell gas. Had it towed back to my place and started ruling things out (I'm a novice) . . . I've got spark. I determined this by inserting a screw driver into plug from cylinder 1 (screw driver inserted to plug, and...
  7. Engines & Drivetrain
    Hey everyone I have a 1995 yj with a 2.5l engine thats having a problem. I have searched around the forums and found people with kind of similar problems but not quite the same. So in the morning or after my jeep has been sitting for awhile when I go to start it the fuel pump doesn't kick right...
  8. Jeep CJ Forum
    I put a new gas tank on my 86 CJ. I put around 6 gallons in the new tank. When I turn the key it cranks fine. This has a mechanical fuel pump. I'm not getting fuel to the carburetor. I used a pump to load the lines with fuel (sucked gas from the tank to the fuel pump). That didn't work so I...
  9. Jeep CJ Forum
    Any body else having this issue?? The little gear that drives the rack/push rod to the start switch keeps jumping a tooth on me. First time I replaced the rack and gear as both were worn. But it has happened a few more times and its getting old. Is groove where this runs just worn out to far...
  10. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So, over the course of the last 2 days I pulled and disassembled my steering column all to change the ignition switch. (Long story, yes I now know you don't really need to pull the whole column to replace the switch on top of the column). Everything else went back in and back on. Only the switch...
  11. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hey everyone!! Need some advice with my jeep. This has been an ongoing project for a while and I'm getting so close to having her running but it just seems to be one thing after another. I have a 96 XJ Ltd that i have converted to LPG and i was taking her to be certified and she broke down half...

    Hi, I need some help troubleshooting this issue. At random times, my car doesn't start. It will attempt to turn over but not fire up. I'll attach a video of the issue. https://streamable.com/gnf2f Thanks, Christian
  13. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    (This post is an update to my previous post.) I recently noticed that the AC fan noise has become louder. When I drive on the highway, the AC pushes out cold air. However, when the car is at normal city speed, the air is warm (passenger's side warmer), and the dashboard eventually gives the...
  14. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    To start this off I was going on a trip and leaving the jeep behind, I was looking under the hood for some reason and left it open. It rained that night and it was shut the next day. Apparently the light bar was on for quite awhile, I traced it to the relay getting waterlogged and shorting out...
  15. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hey everyone, Its been about 7+ years since I last had my Jeep TJ and I have visited this message board but now I am back! I loved my blue 1999 TJ to death but compounded circumstances of college, having it as a daily driver, and gas prices being over $4.00 forced me to get rid of it. I've had...
  16. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hey guys, I need a little diagnostic assistance. My YJ has been running flawlessly since my 2.5L rebuild about a year ago. However, this afternoon, I experienced a slight hesitation on the highway during an 18 mile long, 45 minute trip, but nothing else. I then stopped at the grocery store...

    This 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee was my moms vehicle, she is currently living in a nursing home but I own the Jeep now, had't run since 11/2015. I replaced the battery back in 11/2015. I turned key and it just cranks and cranks but never starts so it sat in moms driveway until 2/5/2016. Friend...

  19. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    Jeep has 56,000 km in it. Has worked great, never had issues with it. Outside temperature dropped recently (not sure if related but worth a mention), when I started her up yesterday she makes a nasty screeching sound. I found it odd, tried a few more times and stopped. Then, I pumped the gas...
  20. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Here Goes Driving down the road and my 1988 jeep dies. Nothing at the ignition switch. Seemed like the battery was dead but lights were bright. I can bump the starter at the starter relay and it turns over perfectly. Found a burnt wire on the starter relay ( centre top ). Fixed the...
