#4945 of 5136 HELP HELP CHEROKEE WONT FIRE!!!
Oct 15, 2011 (10:03 am)
I have a 95 cherokee limited straight 6 all wheel drive. The other day I was driving down the hwy and it just died. It would turn over but not fire up. So I got it towed back home. I thought it was the fuel pump but when i spray starter fluid into the air intake it dosent fire and if it was the pump it should. So i moved on and so far I replaced the ignition coil still no fire. Then i thought maybe the pick up in the distributor and replaced that. Still no fire. Then i thought must be the engine control module computer so I replaced that and thought for sure it would start but again no fire up. Im not getting a spark at the distributor and dont know what else it could be. this is my only car and i need it fixed bad. If any one can help please do so. HELP NO SPARK!!!!

Try checking the Crankshaft / Flywheel Sensor, and the Cam Sensor
Shame you already replaced the ECM, may have not needed that ?

I agree with offroadpep. Is the engine cranking freely? Is it getting air & fuel?

You will need a digital voltmeter and wiring diagram. You may have blown a fusible link or have a bad ground. When checking continuity on a ground wire make sure one clip lead goes all the way back to the (-) terminal of the battery. Unfortunately, this will all take time and as you have already seen, experimenting with solutions is not cost effective. I once replaced a rear wiper motor and the problem was the switch that turns the wiper on. I replaced a power window motor and the problem was the track. I'm an electrical engineer and it has taken me days to track down electrical problems. I hope you kept your old engine computer so you will have a spare. There was probably nothing wrong with it. Basically, if you need it fixed right away you will have to go to a mechanic $$$.

I was lucky when the same thing happened to me going up a 13% grade. The coil burned out...150k miles on a 93 gc 6 cyc. Was getting fuel but no spark. Pulled the coil wire and there was nothing. Replaced and all OK...but was told if that did not fix it check the crank sensor. Pulling a hard grade like that in an old jeep is common to put such a load on the coil that it frys. In that area the Napa guy said they have seen coils that actually looked hot!!

#4952 of 5136 Checked E-Bay 4 you-valve guide 4.7
Oct 25, 2011 (3:57 pm)
I checked e-bay motors for you, nothing there.
Otherwise, you will have to buy at a USA shop that is willing to ship overseas. I bought my Jeep and deal with Safford motors (I have a 99 4.7)
