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

Answer . \nThe crank sensor is on the rear of the motor on the drivers side.It bolts to the bellhousing withe 2 bolts. It looks it has 2 wings on the sides where the bolts go through.It has a 2 wire plug going to it. Its easier to reach from the under side
I am getting very low heat in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee Could this simply a problem with the thermostat since I recently replaced the radiator If so is the thermostat easy to replace?
Answer . Yes, the thermostat would be a very good candidate. Follow the top radiator hose back to the engine block. The hose connects to a housing that is bolted to the engine. Remove the hose, remove the two bolts that hold the housing and the thermostat should be right under it.\n. \nMake sure… that you thoroughly clean the surfaces, both the housing and the engine before you try to put it all back together. Some thermostats hosings are sealed with a gasket, others are sealed with a rubber seal. Whichever yours has, make sure you replace the seal. While you're at it, inspect the hoses and replace any that are bulging, leaking or brittle. Fill the coolant reservoir with fresh coolant after you have put everything back together.\n. \nIt's a very easy fix and should help with the heat. ( Full Answer )
Answer . look just behind the downpipe of the exhaust manifold. right at the 2 oclock position of the bellhousing top on a 4.0 when looking at it from front of the car, yes its behind the lip at the hardest place to get to. or access from under the car. i prefer the tip though..
location of crank position sensor . It is bolted to the transmission bell housing, drivers side, near the top. The bolts advance toward the front of the vehicle. It is nested in a rubber boot and senses teeth on the flywheel to detect top dead center and 180 degrees off TDC.
Answer . Unlikely. The temperature is not regulated per say by anything to do with electronics other than the cooling system Senser/Fan system...\n. \nThe thermostat is most likely your problem. Possibly an air pocket in the coolant, or, maybe a pinched hose, or plugged radiator, but it will no…t be the CPS..\n. \nMax420 ( Full Answer )
crank sensor replacement on 93 Jeep Gran . \nI have found the best way to change this sensor on the 318cid model is from the top. I removed the transmission crossmember and jacked the transmission all the way up to gain more space behind the engine. You will find the sensor on the right side, fol…low the 3 wire harness and unplug it. Then using a couple of extentions and swivels you can reach behind to feel the bolts and guide the socket on to the bolts. I could not see the bolts at all it was done by feel. Remove the bolts and sensor, then reverse this procedure. ( Full Answer )
The crank sensor is located on the bell housing/drivers side from the drivers seat it is @ the 10 o'clock position. This is not an easy job but anyone can do it. Raise the vehicle, take a screw driver & carefully pop the shift linkage off. Move the cable out of the way. If you remove the front driv…e shaft it is a lot easier. But you don't have to. Work from the bottom it is a long reach. Use a 13mm socket, remove the bolt & shield. Install new sensor making sure that the magnet is clean. The general air gap for the sensor is around half way through the bolt hole that secures the sensor. Reassemble. ( Full Answer )
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nI had this problem with my 95 Jeep Wrangler. When I had to replace the starter I happened to have to replace the battery at the same time and it starts a lot faster. Of course it could be dirty injectors or something like that but that is what took care of mine. Appa…rently my starter was "tired" and finally went out. Having a good battery will deliver more juice to the starter also. Hope this helps. Apparently it is a older Jeep problem. The newer ones don't seem to have such a problem.\n. \n. \n. \n . \n Well I have a pretty new battery (Less than a year old) in the Jeep. I will try fuel injector cleaners in the next few days. \n. \nWhen I turn the key to the ON position for a few seconds, and then back to OFF, and then start, it will start almost instantly. Eventually I might get a new starter. Thank you for your response! ( Full Answer )
Answer . on the 4.0 6 cyl engine the crank position sensor is mounted to the bell housing drivers side top. so if you look from drivers side fender it will be just behind the engine where the transmission bell housing bolts to the rear of the engine.towards the top.
cps location . Its should be neer the top of the bellhousing on the drivers side of the engine. It reads off of the flywheel..
The cam sensor is inside the distributor. The crank sensor is on the top driver side of the bell housing.
driver side on the back of the motor where is crak sensor on 94 jeep 4.0 grand Cherokee
yes you will lose pulse to the fuel injectors and fuel pump activation. common part to fail. the wires fray and brake near transmission.
i recently had a diagnostic test done on my 1998 jeep Cherokee sport; 4wd;4.0 L and was told that i have 3: 1 located before the catalytic converter & 2 located after the catalytic converter: i also would like some clarification on the matter because i looked underneath the vehicle and so far have f…ound 2! ( Full Answer )
Answer . Yes. The Crank sensor monitors the position and rotational speed of the engine to determine timing for ignition. if it is not functioning you will get no spark.
On a 4.0l the crank sensor is located on the transmition. Driver side, near the top of the bellhousing at about 2 O'clock looking from the front of the truck at the engine. The wire conector is near the back of the intake (3 wire connector i have heard of a 2 wire connector instead but i have never …seen it) you can follow to the crank sensor (top of tranny). ( Full Answer )
should be behind the engine; towards the top and front of automatic transmission (what would be the bell-housing). Hard to get to, must have u-joint socket. Looks like a little "flashlight" or cylinder 2 inches long 1/2 diameter. It is magnetic.
Depends on the engine; but a 4.0l has 3. One on the exhaust manifold and another before the converter and last one in the converter.
Yes. In fact, you can expect to go through almost as many crank sensors as you do tires over the years.
There should be 2 oxygen sensors on your jeep one before the catylic converter and one after, inside of the exhaust pipe. be sure to have your mechanic check both. They normally don't go out at the same time but it does happen.
Jeep Cherokee crd2002 keeps cutting out whilst drivingbeen in repairs 4 months nownot crank sensor what else could it be?
My 97 Grand Cherokee was doing the same thing. Replacing the computer was the answer after being at 2 different dealers, two times each, I figured it out myself when they couldn't. Also called ECU (engine control unit) or PCM (powertrain control module)
It is at the top very front of the transmission just to the left of centerline. You can reach up to it from under the truck but may need to disconnect transmission shifter linkage to do so.
The crank sensor is located on the back of the engine passenger side it bolts to the flywheel backing plate
The governer pressur esensor is the black sensor on the passenger side of the valve body inside the transmission pan.
no coolant leak. no smoke or steam. no water in oil. overheats about every 125 miles. auto trans. cold air.
You need to take it in for service, the airbag computer has detected a malfunction and set a code.
I have a 95 Jeep Cherokee sport and it won't stay crunk when you crank it but if you hold the ignition it will stay running. What could the problem be?
possibly the ignition switch electrical part , but you will want to pull the key cylinder and make sure the little piece on the back of the cylinder is not cracked off nomal indicated by a key that seems to turn to far
The crank sensor mounts to the top of the transmission bell housing on a 1996 Jeep Cherokee.
It is on the back of the engine, where it connects to the transmission. Driver side, looking down from the firewall.
On the back of the engine, under the firewall, driver side. You can barely see it from above. You have to change it from underneath.
It is something that does happen from time to time. Replace the o-rings on the sensor and the plastic adapter housing it sits in.
The crank sensor is located on the rear side of trans bell housing on the upper drivers side where the engine and trans meet. You can follow the sen wires from the 3 prong connector that is mounted to a metal bracket by a plastic ribbed pull connector located on the back pass side intake manifold cl…osest to the fire wall rite on the top. Unplug and follow the 3 wires they go down back behind the engine to the mounting location of the crank sensor on the back of the bell housing. ( Full Answer )
i don't know if it is the same but on my 96 Cherokee 4.0 i6 4x4 go to fire wall toward driver side reach down on top of bellhousing it takes 2 people 1 reaching down on bellhousing and 1 laying under jeep with ratchet.person on the ground cannot see it person on top has to line the tool up on the bo…lt and help hold socket on while ground man turns slowly.when u find that follow 5 inch wire to disconnect unhook. i believe the part is about $60 . be patient it is time consuming and sort of a pain in butt! i hope this could help u good luck ( Full Answer )
No. The crankshaft position sensor is required for the engine to start and run. The engine computer uses it for fuel and ignition timing.
Could be a number of reasons. Thermostat, water pump, blown fan relay, bad fan motor.
From memory: My 1990 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L with a manual transmission has the sensor through the top of the transmission bell housing. Two bolts hold it in, and the 3-wire cable runs to a recepticle mounted on the firewall, near where the intake manifold meets the head.
I'm not sure if it's the same on the 2004 but I have a 1989 and it's on the top left side of the transmission bell housing.
CPS is located on bell housing drivers side. Hard to get to! Common problem for 90's Cherokee not to start.
there could be many different factors in the problem could be that your cooling fan does not come on or your radiator is plugged or maybe your thermostat does not open or it could even be low on anti-freeze.
the crankshaft sensor is behind the cylinder head on the top of the bell-housing (where the motor and transmission bolt together)
On the transmission. Left side at the motor on top. It's bolted to the motor, but it's in the transmission. The plug is on the back side of the intake by the O2 harness.
The crankshaft position sensor is mounted in the top driver side of the transmission bell housing.
I have a 1988 Cherokee and I had to replace the crank sensor a few weeks ago. It's not the easiest thing to get too. One end fastens to a wire toward the back of the motor on the driver's side. It's pretty much in plain sight and easy to get to. It looks kind of like an alternator wire. The other en…d has a plate that bolts onto the top of the transmission on the driver's side. It's extremely hard to get to because it's in between the transmission and the fender well. When I changed mine, I got to one bolt from under the hood, not very easily I might add, but I had to crawl up in under it and almost break my arm to even touch the other bolt. Good luck! ;) ( Full Answer )
I have a tendency to cite other online sources for questions. Repair Pal is a great site to get a lot of information on things like "common problems" for vehicles. Go to this link, which is for your year, make and model, it will hopefully provide you with the information you need.
Check that there is power to the radiator fan(s) if so change the radiator fan motor, if not then check the fuse to the fan. If the fuse is good then go to the fan relay. It is going to be fan related since it happens right away after starting the truck or else there is a blown head gasket.
You're probably talking about the input speed sensor and/or the output speed sensor (if your model has one). They are about $20-$30 a piece, it's a cheap fix.
It does not have a mass airflow sensor. It does not have a mass airflow sensor.
Jeep Cherokee didn't come with a V8. It must be a Grand Cherokee? Top pass side of the bell housing.
If it is the same as my Cherokee it will be on the top of the transmission on the driver side right behind where the engine and transmission join.
Why is it impossible to find a camshaft position sensor for a 1998 Jeep Cherokee that goes into the distributor?
This part is called several other names. 1) A camshaft positionsensor. 2) Stator 3) Sync-Pulse Generator. 4) Auto Zone had it butcalled it a Pick-Up Coil (Part Number CR149).
