We need help QUICK!!!!!!!

We have a 1991 Jeep Wrangler. Went out to start it today and my foot slipped off the clutch. We have over a foot of snow here! Anyway now it won't start. It will turn over but not start. Is there a switch or something that may have broken that turns the clutch on? ANY ideas to help us out here would be so appreciated. Please respond ASAP we need our Jeep back!

Thank you very much.

There is no switch that turns the clutch on. The clutch is hydraulically operated. The problem lies somewhere else. You very well could have a frozen fuel line. I have 22 degrees where I'm at right now...so I would look this direction.

When was the last time the Jeep was running? When did you last put drygas in the tank? Was the Jeep running when your foot slipped off the clutch?

Re: We need help QUICK!!!!!!!

What about the clutch defeat switch? Could it be missaligned?

Look in your owners manual. It should outline how to bypass the clutch switch. It usually just pulling or inserting a fuse.

Nevermind, I misread.

Re: We need help QUICK!!!!!!!

Last winter I stalled my 91 YJ out and was stranded at the NY state line for a week. It had gas and spark, I thought it jumped time or something. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
Turns out when it stalled it it flooded and washed the oil out of the rings and wouldn't spin over fast enough to start. A little oil (about a table spoon) in each cylinder did the trick.
I hope this helps.
