Unhappy 2004 inline 6cyl runs for 5 min then dies.

HI,

It died while driving the other night at a traffic light and wouldnt jump start. Checked old battery it cant hold a charge. So i replaced the battery and checked the volts while running was 13.8v and 12.5v when off. Everything seemed fine. Then after 5 min of idling it died for no reason. Would not start back up right away. I had to wait 30min before it would start. Then it ran again for 5 mins and died. Restarted the first time and i held idle at 2000rpm in park and the engine still cut off, just like someone turns the key off....very weird. Doesnt really stumble either just turns off. No codes on dash when i turn the key either.

Hope someone can help!

Thanks
Mike

Crankshaft position sensor (CKP) is the predominant culprit. Camshaft position sensor, another potential culprit.

If you replace the CKP sensor I would recommend the dealer as the only source of the part. On my ZJ I had replaced it with an aftermarket and it solved the running problem but I got a lot of misfire codes. All went away when I replace the CKP with one from the dealer ($138).

I had the same issue with two of my jeeps and it turned out to be those sensors for the crank/cam....I would replace both the crankshaft sensor, and the camshaft sensor just to get it done and over with, and so you wont have to worry about it shutting down on you again in the near future!!

Re: 2004 inline 6cyl runs for 5 min then dies.

If it IS the Crankshaft Position Sensor (trouble code p0320), here is the EASY way to replace it...
EASY!!! After cutting the crap out of my hands and inventing new curse words removing the old Crankshaft Position Sensor from my 2003 Grand Cherokee 4.0, I could not get the bolt back in with multiple extensions and swivels.
I figured there MUST be an easier way, something the stealership is not letting on about.
Fact is, if you go through the firewall under the dash it is EASY!!
Here's how to do it:
1) Remove the plastic bottom panel directly under the gauges. It simply snaps up and out.
2) Locate the 4 10mm bolts that hold the lower plastic panel under the steering column and remove them along with a few phillips head screws as well to free up the panel. Remove.
3) Look behind the console and you will see a small plastic "L" shaped duct that blows air to your feet. Snap it out of its position and remove the phillips screw holding it from under/behind (or cut the plastic flange with a razorknife halfway if the screw is hard to get at - takes a shorty phillips screwdriver. This way you can still snap it back on.)
4) Pull the carpet back and tuck it under the gas pedal.
5) You will see an oval metal plate that the shifter cable runs through as it passes through the firewall. Remove the 2 10mm nuts and pull the plate back.
6) VIOLA! There is the crankshaft position sensor staring you right in the face through the hole in the firewall you have exposed!
7) Insert 11mm socket with extension and remove/replace bolt with ease.

You guys are welcome to buy me a beer when we cross trails
