Crankshaft Sensors

If a 1998 Jeep Cherokee is overheating could the crank sensor be the problem and if so where do you find it?

Hey Tony==The crank sensor is on the rear of some jeeps attached to the bell housing. It in itself won't cause overheating. If you have electric fans, make sure they are operating properly. Make sure the radiator is flowing coolant and not have a bunch of build up. Good luck Joe

Overheating the engine shouldn't effect the transmission. Overheating the transmission could.

A sensor could be the reason why a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo fails to start. The crank position sensor is often the problem. You can try unplugging the sensor for several minutes and then plugging it back in to see if that fixes the problem.

Crank position sensor could be the problem. Worth looking into.

According to my mechanic, it has something to do with the cam shaft position sensor overheating.
