2000 4.7 Won't start !!
I bought a 2000 Grand Cherokee 4.7 that sat in a garage in Phoenix for 2 years, Ran fine prior. I can't get it to start. Put in new plugs, new fuel filter and new fuel. There is fuel at the test port with pressure. Will fire with a shot of starting fluid at intake. But not getting fuel to fire , Any ideas ?

Did you check for any fault codes set using the key dance ( ignition switch off/on 3 times and leave it in on at the third time. odometer will show fault(s) or done.)
When no codes set, i would try a new crank sensor.

If it runs with the starting fluid then you know your getting spark, and if your getting spark then you know your crankshaft positions sensor is working. did you by chance flush out the fuel lines and rail of the old fuel?
