    Hello all... We recently bought a 1993 4x4 Jeep Cherokee from someone. It had a busted flex plate and bad head gasket. We took the engine completely out, replaced the flex plate, and all of the gaskets ( just to be safe). We put the engine back in, and now we have no fire to the distributor. It was starting before but ran crappy. We have replaced the CPS, and now we are lost. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Unplug the 02 sensor and see what it does . I also own a 93 Cherokee (it is a police/ mail package) anyway mine shut down on me for no reason , no spark and no fuel . I found the wiring to the 02 sensor was burnt , due to the factory routing of it ( it was to close to the exhaust) but JMO on what i found . let us know back on ur problem

    Just a couple thoughts in case you have not checked them yet:

    1. Is your timing right? Putting the distributor in wrong is not uncommon.
    2. Check all vacuum, fuel, and electrical connections. (every single one)
    3. Find out if you are getting fuel. (crank it a few times and pull a plug...is it wet with fuel?)
    4. Find out if it has spark. (you have a plug out for #3 anyway...)

    just my 2 cents.
