So i get a call from my grandfather back in charleston sc, where my jeep has been sitting in the driveway not being driven for 4 months, been the hardest 4 months of my life. anyways he has been starting the jeep occasionally to keep the motor running good and the batt. alive, he said he tried to start it the other day and got nothing from it. he said all it would do is turn over. he says he thinks it is not getting any fuel. i told him to do a fuel pressure check on the fuel rail but he is 75 years old and doesnt want to mess with it. anyways i think that it is either the fuel pump relay or the pump itself. i plan on doing a voltage check at the pump when i get back down there, but what else might it be if it is not the relay or the pump? i think it might also have somthing to do with the computer becasue if some of you guys remember back in feburary when i was trying to drive it back to seattle is was having problems with it stalling out at highway speeds ( 70 + ) mph every 30 miles or so. how hard it is to replace a fuel pump on a 97 tj sport 4.0. i heard it is kinda a PITA. what i am really trippin on is the fact that it has a full tank of gas and i am either gonna have to siphon it all out or drop a full tank.
