Ok, due to the fact that I am not as familiar as i am v the more recent jeeps, i did some research and also found some answers for you. Her 2.5 definetely has actually a crankshaft position sensor. Native what I could find out on her camshaft place sensor is the you should have one but I am just 80% certain on the one. I imagine if you have actually the crankshaft position sensor, girlfriend should have actually the camshaft one too.

Well, i posted increase on cherokeeforum.com however they have too numerous post"s there. I can write-up something and in 15 minute it will certainly be second page stuff.Any how, she is dying at short speeds offroad and requires a 15 come 20 minute rest to restart. Once she dies, ns am shedding spark. Ns was told electronic came posistion sensor, but the person who claimed that additionally told me he was sorry and also didn"t relaize I had a 2.5L and to disregard what ns was told. I had others also say that is quiet the cam posistion sensor or also the crank position sensor. How do I determine wich one it is? thanks.

To determine which one the is, you require a manual and an ohm meter or volt meter. Obtain the chilton"s hand-operated as lock are about $15 or so and have diagrams and also it tells you the correct voltage and also resistance and stuff........test every of those and also you will discover the culprit. Or just buy among each but that can acquire costly simply replacing parts at random.

where is the camshaft place sensor located? i toke turn off the distrubitor cab because I was told that is where it is at. Over there is nothing there. Ns am reasoning it is by the coil seeing just how it is likewise known together a coil pick up sensor. Is the Inginioton control Module the exact same as the CPS?

No the ignition manage module is not the very same as cps....cps stands for crank position sensor and also is usually located on the back of the engine wherein the transmission and also engine meet yet I am no sure about some things on your version only because it is a tiny older than most XJs that i am unfamiliar with. Commonly the electronic came sensor will be situated under the distributor cap and bolted come the housing right at the bottom if you space looking in ~ it indigenous the peak with the lid off. It must be a tiny plastic type thing through a pair or so little screws to organize it in........your engine may not have actually a electronic came sensor being how old the is and is a coil pickup sensor which must be located in the same location as a camer sensor need to be........if this is too confusing let me know and also Iw ill try to reword it for you ok.
