Jeeps most common problem is with these particular vehicles are the crank sensors. May also have a bad reluctor. which is part of the flywheel. What you need to do first, Need to first remove the crank sensor which is on top of the bell housing. Remove it and inspect for cracks if you see any cracks replace it. and reset gap. You can use a small piece cardboard like the thickness of an oil filter box,tape it to the tip end of the sensor,and reinstall. After inspection or replacement of the sensor, start vehicle,Also keep an eye on your tachometer . Your tachometer should slightly come up when cranking. If not replace sensor.The crank sensor is a part of the ignition system, the pcm needs to see where top dead center is or where #1 cylinder is to determine when to spark, simply put. So the pcm knows when to fire.

1: inspect all brake linings first.
no pulling left or right braking?
the car has 100% full manual brakes. if the brake booster fails.
(its only and assist !!! for 50lb small folks)
so does it? it takes more pedal pressure but has 100% full braking.
this is no accident its by design.
make sure none of the brake shoes/pads are soaked in DoT3/4 fluid
or grease or gear oil.
and no brake fluid leaks end to end, this is really #1 on all cars.
look, then look again. even behind and in front of the master cylinder.
look at tires (inside for fluid leaks>)
2: do the booster test. did the vacuum hose to it fall off?
or got pinched, or ?

google brake booster test
if ABS system. get it all checked,
if ABS get the ABS scanned.

if you cant stop correctly,,,,???? , dont drive.
get it fixed.

exhaust pipe after cat converter

1999 Jeep... | Answered on Apr 03, 2015 | 113 views

well first is the fuse. (if all else works ok, not stated)
no shorted bulbs, they can short. like that. and blow fuse.
the free book is here, see TJ? 1999
see last line WIRING, click that?
id work brakes first, 10x more simple.
see page. ,8w-51-4 (pdf page 134)

see fuse 2? brakes
it feeds brake switch .
id bet the fuse is blown,
if blown remove 4 lamps , blow now, wirnng shorts rear. (hitch hacks)
if not blown check wire, white-tn (tan) for 12v when brakes are applied, if 0v move forward do switch, brake,
the point that has 12vdc on one side and 0v other is bad.
wire, connector or switch.
if voltage is found to be low, that is a short.

This is pretty straight forward, you need to locate the exhaust manifold and follow it down to where it connect to the exhaust pipe, there three bolts on the joint and you take those out. Then see if you can separate the pipe from the manifold. If you cannot separate them then you need to get under the jeep and loosen the holders for the exhaust pipe. When you can separate the joint, take the old doughnut out and put in the new one. Make sure that you get it tight and that you tighten the bolts evenly. Don't over tighten one side.

Hello, When you say no fire do you mean that you are not getting the engine to fire up or are you saying that there is no "fire" (slang for spark) at the plug wires? I would check for spark at the plugs. It should be a nice white blue spark. Tiny spark or no spark may indicate a faulty coil. Check the coil too. Be careful when you check all of this. Make sure your wires are in great condition as you can get electrocuted. If this checks out, check your distributer cap for cracks and scale build up. Any crusty flakes in the cap may be indicating that your cap is crakced. Check the rotor button and remember how yo took it off. Is it worn out or broken? Replace any part as needed. Are you getting gas? Listen for your fuel pump to hum as it kicks on. Check Fuel pump relay (look in fuse box under hood and in glove box) The last time it ran, was it running normally? Did you just shut it off and it would not start? Was it stalling? Did you take it out 4x4 and bend a fuel line? How many miels on it? It could be your computer as well if you have high miles but this would be my least suspect. There is also an ignition module under your distributor cap that can fail. (Two wires) Is your distributor tight on its post or is it loose? Check the simple things first and please let me know what happens or if I can be of more help. Good luck!

Only if the blower does not come on at all. Check refrigerant level too.

Sounds like a clutch pressure plate or clutch disc problem. One of them may have a broken spring. You will probably need to renew the clutch.

anon post
no engines option state (no size and cyl. counts)
is the dash toy gauge working right or fibbing.?
i never trust one, i use the nand IR pyro gun for 15 bucks.
the gun can in fact tell you if any RAD tubes are clogged
thermostat not in backwards? and bleed hole up hill?

a bad rad tube will read hot on the feed end and about 50 degrees
less on the other end, if not the tube is clogged. easy huh,
running 50% coolant
no coolant in the engine oil?
no oil in the top of rad neck, or carbon chucks.
not getting so hot it pings?
steam out tail pipe end on hot motor and stinks sweet (glycol sweet)?
rad cap works and holds 14psi.? the big rad hoses.when squeezed
will reflect that 14 pound per square inch. super easy test.
no leaks.
no leaks on passengers toes, or to ground or to engine oil pan(milky)
if all that pans out the pump is bad. or belt loose.

one thing not stated.
does it overheat parked and running fast. or both.??????
if only parked the fans are failing.
all engines over heat parked, and in FACT that is the FSM '
test, doing exactly that. you get it warm, then parked
it starts to get hot. then the fans come on,
if not , fix fan(s)
summer answer, not in winter in Alaska.... different answers there.

are the air paths from the grill to the back side of RAD
clean not all parked in dirt bugs and what not?
if the fan cant suck, the RAD will overheat. for sures.
