First off, it's been too long. I finally got back in country and my jeep back from the inlaws after 6 years. It has been sitting for 2 of those years in no start condition and I have no idea what happened or when it started last or how it ran.. So I did the obvious thing; try to get it running again.
Battery was dead(obviously after years..) So i went and got a group 34 autozone gold 1000cca's. Good to go. It turns now but doesn't start..
On to next problem preventing it from starting. I checked for fuel at the fuel rail by poking the schrader valve in the fuel rail. Dry. Damn. Ok so I dead some light reading, you-tubing, and soul searching.. It doesn't pressurize the fuel rail unless I jump the relay for the fuel pump. Awesome. Bad relay, right? Nope.. Replaced the relay with a new one from autozone.
This is my current state on this jeep. Pump works with relay jumper but not with relay. It also seems to lose pressure after less than an hr.. I pulled out my old handy dandy digital multimeter aaannnnddd its corroded and kaput so I ordered another DMM that should be here today to do some checks.
Cps? Fuel pump? Neutral safety switch? I haven't pulled the plugs to check for spark yet. One thing at a time. Anyone have ideas?
Oh, and it's great to be back!
