2001 jeep cherokee 4.0 won't start

Asked by Jan 09, 2016 at 07:22 PM about the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Parked the jeep in the drive, turned it off, went inside, came back outside
minutes later and it would not start.  Smell fuel when attempting to start.  
Took the hose from the air cleaner off. Still not starting.  Pulled the coil pack.  
Have power at the plug to the coil pack when attempting to start.  Replaced
the coil pack.  Still doesn't start.  Returned the new coil pack and purchased
another one from another vendor.  Same result. Tested the coil pack.  No
spark.  Yet still have power at the plug that connects to the coil pack.
What am I missing?  Power to the coil pack, but no spark when testing the
coil pack.

Not going through the coil...smell like eggs? Next is check wires making sure right place. It's being stopped. No spark at plugs. I can't get google to work my phones screwed... Is there a igniter on it? Trace wires back. Sounds like its not getting enough juice. Sorry I'm not much help on this one
