do i follow the numbers up top or inside the figure
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

Inside the figure. The big rectangle is the engine. The circle is the distributor. Set 1-to-1, 2-to-2, 3-to-3, etc

Its connected right but not firing up
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

Check you spark plug gap: 0.035 in

Check that the cap and rotor are set correctly.

Make sure your plug wires are tight.

Is a certain wire suppose to go to a number
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

No. As long as the wire reaches from distributor to spark plug, it's good. No specific wire needs to be in any specific spot.

nothing working and it was working before this
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

If it just happened after spark plug replacement, like I say, double-check the gaps on the plugs. Has to be somewhere in the plugs or wires if it was fine before the replacement.

Did you plug the center wire to the ignition coil?

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
because i couldnt get that piece off
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

While cranking the engine, remove the spark plug wire from spark plug #1 and hold it near the plug. Is there good, strong spark jumping from the wire to plug?

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
take the wired off of #1 spark plug bt leave the wire close to it and then crank it
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

Correct. There should be a visible spark coming from the plug wire jumping to the plug.

I don't understand. No cranking at all now? Won't even turn over?

When i rehooked it yes
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
No spark
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

Ok. If you have no spark, the ignition coil has failed and will need to be replaced. Carefully inspect the electrical connector and wire harness to the coil for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If no problems are found, replace the ignition coil.

Is you talking bout the thing thats inside the distibor
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
All the wires are connected
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

No. The ignition coil is the box-type unit on the side of the distributor. The center wire on the distributor cap goes to it. Here's an image view: https://goo.gl/LXt42f

thats the piece i couldnt get off
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

Ok. If you have no spark, that's the reason. As long as the electrical connector and wire harness are good, the coil has failed and will need to be replaced.

Would it be alright to just hook the new one up to see if it starts but i cant secure it
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

No. It needs to be mounted.

Im saying to to see if it works
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 21 days ago

I believe for the coil to work correctly, it needs to be mounted to the engine.

I was able to change to ignition coil bt its stil not starting
Jeep Mechanic: Ron Z., - Jeep Tech - replied 19 days ago

You'll need to re-check for spark with the new coil in place like you did above- remove #1 plug wire and crank engine. If still no spark, there is a problem in the wiring to the coil. If spark is now good, check fuel pressure.
