His problem is ESP related not starting related Hey N2 It seems to me that at times there are multiple symptoms that can be caused by an underlying problem and its worthwhile to apply the TSBs if they are related in any way to a symptom.

When a cps begins to fail it will usually give you warning signs of misfiring when the engine is warmed up. From there it will turn into complete engine stalling but should restart when engine is cold. No codes will be indicated either. I would think by now yours has been replaced but im usually wrong. There is also a cam position sensor located in the distributor that will fail also. I have seen the 4.0 be pretty hard on ignition coils also.
so maybe its the cps and not the ckp. Will the cam shaft sensor prevent spark though This whole thing has me baffled.

He isnt getting power to the distributor in the first place so the camshaft sensorstatordistributor pickup wouldnt be getting power right now. And yes the coil takes some abuse but he replaced this as well theres always the chance it came in the box bad though. OP do you have a voltmeter
when i pulled the tranny i did remove the Crank shaft position sensor. When I originally toasted my clutch the entire bellhousing filled up with debris. Then the engine stalled out and I couldnt get it running. My original thoughts were that since the bellhousing was fouled with debris it kept the sensor from working properly. I couldnt work on it today but will tomorrow. Its a cheap part worth a try.

Put the new sensor on its better but not fixed and the same error codes.. ideas
Heres a picture I had already posted. The cam sensor is within the distributor below the rotor. The plug in the diagram is what connects it to the loom. What was the code you got Could it have been a crank shaft sensor code rather than a cam shaft sensor code
What again was the CEL It sounds like you have a problem with your CKP (crankshaft positioning sensor).
P0340 is definitely the code for the cam sensor. Could it be the distributor was installed incorrectly and is out of sync If the distributor is installed correctly it could just be the quality of the sensor in the distributor. Might be best to get a sensor from a dealership as far as quality is concerned.

Camshaft position sensor or Crankshaft position sensor The timing chain wouldnt matter to the Crankshaft sensor.
Are you installing the right crankshaft position sensor There are several models & they even vary by automatic vs. manual transmission. And if youre buying your sensors from Autozone etc. try getting an OE sensor from a jeep or DodgeChrysler dealership. sensors are something I will stick with OE only.
Advance and autozone have some really crappy electric parts. I would also try some OE stuff. Also check to see if there is anything that could cause the sensor to heat up. Heat really kills these things maybe hot antifreeze or hot oil leaking on them
Quote Also check to see if there is anything that could cause the sensor to heat up. Heat really kills these things maybe hot antifreeze or hot oil leaking on them I am having a similiar issue. I have gone through 3 cps in the last 2 months. I realize that something else is killing it. Do you guys think that a leaking rear main seal could be the culprit Hot oil on the sensor
Is your Check Engine light on Getting any codes
No Check Engine light... I dont have a device to read codes. I can take it to AutoZone or something Will it give a code without having a warning light come one Thanks for your questions.
CPS and ignition coil would be 2 to look at first. Both cheapeasy. And I dont remember the CEL being on when my coil went kaput.
And now to just really pile it on. When you say you lost power does that mean it kept running but just no get up and go If so you might want to check your fuel system as well.
It goes up near the back of the intake manifold near where the O2 sensor plugs in. It follows the O2 sensor almost straight up. Its connector is between the firewall and intake manifold.
Thanks. I couldnt find anything from above. The connector was a little different from that on my sensor (one of them must have been aftermarket).
