The engine would not start.I replaced the crank sensor.Now it would try to start but sounded like timing problum. Checked timing :# 1 cyl ,comp stroke,3/16 pin in dist. to aline ,used 4.0 hole in pick up.everything ok no start. removed cap and turned while cranking engine started.put cap on and moved wires counterclockwise one hole . engine runs good .drive about 1 hour on highway at 65mph no trouble.next day start up and backup to garage and mil on p0720. replace speed sensor on trans output shaft clear code. drive jeep mil on at about 15 mph. ?? drive back home , engine missing .check codes p1391 , p0720 ?? new plugs & wires.

Engine replacements can cause a variety of problems depending n the age and condition of the vehicle and wiring harnesses. Old wiring can have insulation breaking off inside the loom, brittle or broken wire, bad connectors etc. You will have to spend some time carefully inspecting the entire engine compartment wiring as a start.
