jeep cranks but won't turn over.

Asked by May 26, 2014 at 09:45 AM about the 1996 Jeep Cherokee 4 Dr Sport 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 96 jeep was running great the day before.I went to start it the next day and it just cranked.I thought it might be a fuel pump or fuel filter so i sprayed starting fluid down the air intake but nothing.So I ruled them out.Next i pulled a plug to see if i was getting a spark.I was not.I replaced the plugs(they were due anyway) and the ignition coil but it still won't start.Wires are original and on tight Anybody know what it might be?
