96 Jeep Cherokee won't start

Asked by Xjkrawler Mar 18, 2019 at 07:00 PM about the 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4-Door 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 96 Cherokee with the 4.0l. Was running and randomly
won't start back up. It's getting 50psi of fuel pressure, and
has good spark. Replaced cam sensor and crank sensor. No
check engine light so no codes. Engine cranks but won't fire.
Any ideas?

1 Answer


My jeep did the same thing, found out that the distributor shaft wabbled and rotor was broken under the distributor cap.
