#@%&%@***!$ Jeep won\'t start

Well Crap walked out to go to work and grrrrr grrrr grrrr no starty, I had a few min so I let the fuel that on the end of about the 10th gurgle settle. So more of the same.

So I could smell gas on the end so it is getting fuel. Althought all the ignotion parts I put on last year are 5 year parts, I guess I will start with new plugs, cap, rotor and maybee a coil as it is 8 years old and has never had a new coil. I put new wires on last year so I will hold off on that for now. Anything I am missing??

Heck last time it did this the coil wire fell off,,, Better check that first...

Of course my old beat to death Diesle got me to work!!

Check the big 3!
Electrical gas and air.

Spark the coil first, then the plugs. c'mon Jeff!
