It sounds like a bad distributor. How many miles on the Jeep?


has 147,000 miles on it


with those kind of miles it very well could be the distributor.


the shaft in the dist. can sieze up and cause teeth on end of dist, shaft to peel off. then dist. wont turn. If this is the case...replace the distributor. You will have to retime it.
