First Post NEED HELP! '99 WJ Crankshaft Position Sensor

Hey guys I am having problems. I am in the middle of changing out my Crankshaft Position Sensor.

Taking out the starter---no problem.
Taking out the mounting bolt for the CKS ---No problem.
Taking out the CKS ---PROBLEM

The damn thing will spin freely but I can't get it to actually come out. Do you guys have any hints or tips on what I can do to unlodge the damn thing?

Thanks for any help.

John

Re: First Post NEED HELP! '99 WJ Crankshaft Position Sensor

OK new issue. The CKS is in and it still wont start. I am getting an P0340 now.

Will the CKS going out kill my CPS?

Check which code it is first! I don't have a code chart. Sorry.

Re: First Post NEED HELP! '99 WJ Crankshaft Position Sensor

I am pulling a P0340 which is the Camshaft Sensor now. I have changed it out but I am still getting the code. Could it be that it's not a OEM sensor? I am about to blow this thing up.

Re: First Post NEED HELP! '99 WJ Crankshaft Position Sensor

Did you get this figured out? Sometimes you need to reset the computer by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.

You may also want to follow the harness for the sensor up and check the wires. Make sure nothing is chewed up, fried, melted. I burnt some wires once because the zip tie holding them broke and the wires got too close to the manifold. It may not have ever been the sensor from the beginning...it could be the wiring associated with it.
