I need help figuring out why my jeep cranks but
won't turn over.

3 Answers


if it cranks it turning mean it cranks but wont start !??? right???


I'm no expert but if you have spark, Fuel and air it should at least fire.. What was it doing before it crapped out??


Again I'm no expert but my wife reminded me of when her 2000 crapped out. She could get it to turn over, then run for a couple of seconds but die. The problem was that the battery in the key fob was dead.
