Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
I was driving and truck just shut off will not start i have replaced the dist.and the enig.switch fuel filter and checked the coil i have no spark or fire i am going crazy trying to fix this problem so any advice will be greatly apprecated it is a 94 jeep cherekee 6 cyl. Thanks allen
While you was replacing the distributor did you look at the pick-up coil and module inside the distributor?? If not then either one of those two things will keep an engine from starting. The crankshaft position sensor mounted on the bellhousing will also cause the problem. To check the pick-up coil in the distributor with an ohm meter;remove the dist.cap and hook up one side of ohm meter to a good ground, and the other lead to the pick-up coil terminals Flex the leads by hand to check for intermittrnt openings. The ohm metershould indicate infinitr resistance. If it does not the the pick-up coil is bad and needs to be replaced. Connect both leads from the ohm meter to both terminals of the pick-up coil and flex the leads> the ohm meater should hold a steady value between 500-1500 ohms. If not then replace it. If it does replace the module under the coil in the dist. base. Hope this will help you.
