troubleshooters

Ok I am officially fed up...I had my jeep down for the last 3 months and finally finished the axle swap, gears, and SOA. It is know sitting on 4 wheels but it will not run and I have no idea why, heres the story. First time starting after 3 months fired up about normal and ran around the block. The next couple of drives it missed a small amount and died occasionally on corners. Continued driving it in small amount hoping to clear it out but all that happened was it ran worse with more missing and sputtering and more stalling around corners. At the moment it is sitting in my garage and will not start at all. Things that I have checked: pulled the tank cleaned it and filled with fresh 93, checked pump, changed fuel filter, check spark and it is good all the way around. If I can get it to start a small amount it will run on carb cleaner so Im convinced its a fuel issue but have no idea how to fix it.
Oh yea its an 89 yj 2.5 tbi. I am so frustrated I want to go wheel my new suspension, lockers and gears but my danm jeep wont start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jon

It may be fuel that is keeping it from running, but that doesn't mean a fuel issue. My guess would be a sensor problem which is keeping the computer from firing the injector in the TBI?

I've never dug into the electronics on my Heap for a no-start so I'm not positive which sensors might be your culprit but that is probably where I would look next given the items you've already eliminated.

I think it is a connector problem too... I found an open plug near the throttle body. It is a 3 prong almost household plug with a rap around clasp. I cant find the other side to it. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
