My jeep Grand Cherokkee cannot start after i have changed the engine

Asked by Jul 23, 2012 at 10:59 AM about the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have put in a new Engine using my old distributor from my old engine and my old flywheel. The car is
backfiring when cranking but it is not starting, it just cranks and the distributor shows that its supplying
power to the plugs.

Doesn't sound like you set /lined up the distributor correctly, and your timing if off.
