On the 4.0L SOHC engine (VIN E), the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor is a variable reluctance sensor, which is triggered by the high-point mark on the left-hand camshaft. It is mounted to the valve cover. The 4.0L and 5.0L engines use a separate CMP sensor mounted to the oil pump drive. The drive assembly is located toward the rear of the engine on the 4.0L, and towards the front on the 5.0L engine. 4.0L SOHC Engine (VIN E) Disconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnect the engine control sensor wiring from the camshaft position sensor. Remove the sensor retaining screw and the sensor from the left-hand valve cover. To install: Make sure the camshaft position sensor mounting surface is clean and the O-ring is positioned correctly. Position the sensor, then install the retaining screw and tighten it to 71-106 inch lbs. (8-12 Nm). WARNING Do not overtighten the screw; you may damage the sensor if the retaining screw is overtightened Engage the wiring harness connector to the CMP sensor. Connect the negative battery cable.
