The 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

You can not. The crankshaft position sensor is required to run the engine.

The cam sensor is inside the distributor. The crank sensor is on the top driver side of the bell housing.

It should fit but, the crank position sensor produces a signal by referring to the flex plate. In 1991 Jeep went to a Chrysler fuel injection system and the windows that the crank sensor reads are different. So in other words it should bolt up but then it will not start.

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.

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.

The cps could be a cam or crank sensor. The cam sensor is inside the distributor. The crank sensor mounts through the top of the bell housing, pointing at the flywheel.

A 1990 Jeep Cherokee does not have a reset switch. The fuel system is computer controlled. If not functioning properly there could be a fuse or sensor malfunction.

It cost me $243, that included a charge for diagnostic.
