Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 95 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 and it

I guess depending on the millage it is possible that it jumped time. Bring #1 cylinder up to TDC on the compression stroke. Then take the distributor cap off and see where the rotor is pointing, it should be pointing to #1 spark plug wire tower. Also what could be wrong would be that the distributor gear pin has sheered. After looking where the rotor is pointing on first test, take a hold of the rotor and see if you can turn it. If you can then the pin needs replacing for the distributor gear.

I could save you a list of things to do,my problem turned out to be the computer uder the hood,the inside contact where not touching

she was running fine til i did the tune up .. then.. it start doing this .. it wants to start but just wont do it .. i really think its something to do with the pcm or the anti theft .. im gonna do a hard reset today . will post updates in a few
