    So i changed the O2 sensor on bank 1 sensor 2 because of a misfire and a P0137 code.

    After putting in the new sensor, I went to start my jeep and it wont start.

    All the lights come on and when I turn the key, it cranks but no start. :( sounds like it isnt getting fuel or spark now.

    It's my only vehicle and I need this fixed asap. Its stuck at my job right now and I have to rely on rides to get to and from work. I have no idea what to do.

    Welcome @Bigfoot Tracker ...changed several O2 sensors in the past and never had a no start. Got any engine codes? Used a quality brand O2 sensor? Any outstanding codes?

    lets try unplugging the o2 sensor - see if it starts. ADVISE

    Do you have a scanner able to see live data??

    FYI: the code P0137-O2 SENSOR 1/2 CIRCUIT LOW,
    We need ALL the codes posted.
    Quick question with key on is the odometer displaying mileage?
    Passenger side is bank 1, SENSOR 2 is post cat or rear most sensor.

    Thank you for your replies. I totally appreciate it. I ended up tapping on the crank sensor with a ratchet extension and it fired up. I must have bumped it the wrong way when I was changing the o2 sensor.
