Engine Performance problem
2000 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 97000 miles
My son and I replaced the 4.0 engine in his 2000 Wrangler Sport . It was running when we parked it to swap the engine with a rebuilt. With the new engine it turns over but does not start. There is fuel. There is no fire from the No. 1 plug wire. It was showing No bus on the odometer, fuel gauge, and volt gauge were inoperable. I switched a couple of the relays (ASD and something else) and the no bus went away, gauges started working. I switched the relays back and the "no bus did not return, gauges continued to function. However the engine still turns over, but will not start. It has a new coil pack. There is small relay that is grounded to the block just above the oil filter. The wire kept coming out of the relay plug so I put a new terminal on it and cleaned the ground connection.
I feel like we have not put a wire or connection, something, back like it belongs. Any ideas? Thank you.
