Re: Camshaft Position Sensor 99 Jeep JGC Limited
I just finished fixing a 2000 jeep cherokee 4.0L. Symptoms, car would die after hot, car wouldn't start, turned over no ignition. Also p1391 code, misfire codes etc. After doing the research..common issue is crankshaft position sensor. Replaced it after some difficulty, went underneath, it actually isn't that difficult but you must have the tools. 3/8 ratchet, about 20" of extentions plus a universal joint to be able to get on the 2 bolts. Also I found it easy to removing the bracket holding the wire and the shift rod(i dont know the tech name". To get to this, you need a creeper or crawl feet first underneath the driver door in a diagonal towards the front passenger headlight. Have a bright flashlight i rammed mine along the tranny pointed right at the sensor, remove the bracket with a 13 mm ratchet and move it out of the way. You will see the cps on about the 10-1030 position on the transmission/engine interface, actually on the transmission side. Have some patience, remove the 2 bolts and it is off. At this point if you haven't bought a new sensor, go get a good one either at the dealer or one that has a good guarantee min 3yr to lifetime...I spent 80 bucks at autozone for a duralast..but would have preferred a mopar. Anyway, make sure to use dielectric grease on the new connector. One of those flexible pick-ups is handy for putting the bolts back in the hole. You will get dirty, arms up a little past the elbow so dress accordingly! PS I am not a mechanic but I guess I could be. This should take about 2 hrs, maybe less. Work on it cold, because you are near the engine/exhaust.
