It's my understanding that the Bendix systems (I have an 88 4.0) don't store codes, you just need to actually watch the readouts on a scan tool, is this right? If so, what kind of scan tool do I need to have (interface and cables)?

I have an 88XJ with Renix-1 system, not Bendix systems, and have been looking fore the same tool no luck so far. You are right no codes stored or retrievable.
My tools so far have been Contact Cleaner, Permatex Dielectric Grease, VOM meter, some knowledge and a lot of patience. Finally if you have a problem post it, people will help, many mines make solutions easier.

Does the engine turn over? If so, have you checked for spark from the ignition and fuel pressure at the rail? Since you were working on the intake manifold: Have you double checked that all electrical connectors have been properly reconnected? Vacuum hoses? Fuel lines? That the intake manifold and gasket mated properly up and sealed against the head? Just a few points to check to try and localize the problem.

I'm not familiar with the Renix system, but if wafflesxoxo is correct, it produces fault codes, but does not store them. Thus, a code reader might help in your case as the problem is persistent. The real value of stored codes is in tracing intermittent faults. I would, however, unless it is real inexpensive, be inclined to try to find the problem without it first.

OK My Jeep has a 15 plug and a 6 plug connecter that are rectanguler. It is located on the left hand side of the Engine as you Open the Hood, with yellow rubber caps covering them. Are any of you familiar with these connectors and how do i get codes from it? The OBD 1 and OBD 2 READER Does not have this connect . PLEASE Help. Thank You.
