I dont have much info on a cam sensor but cant hurt to just go to the dealer and show them exactly what is happening and tell them exactly what you said in your post. Whats the worst that could happen
If you are running the defrost or AC it could be the compresssor kicking on. Turn all the cabin controls off and see if it still does the same thing. My XJ does that when the AC compressor starts.
How many miles are on it When did you have the last service done Could be worn spark plugs.
Thx. Ill check what you mentioned regarding cabing climate controls.. although its winter So i only turn on the heat. The last major service was done at 35k I belive. Im now at 42 I havent taken it to the dealer yet I wasnt sure if there was a charge jsut to diagnose. With that damn dealer.. Im sure there is
To remove The Throttle position sensor (TPS) is mounted to the throttle body. (1) Disconnect TPS electrical connector. (2) Remove 2 TPS mounting screws. (3) Remove TPS. To Replace The throttle shaft end of the throttle body slides into a socket in the TPS. The TPS must be installed so that it can be rotated a few degrees. (If sensor will not rotate install sensor with throttle shaft on other side of
Thanks Bob The TPS must be installed so that it can be rotated a few degrees. Do I check this by placing the TPS onto the housing without the screws and twist to assure there is movement (If sensor will not rotate install sensor with throttle shaft on other side of socket tangs). This means to turn the TPS around
It sounds like you have the right ideas in both cases. I havent done one of these but it looks like the shaft is offset. It does sound like you either get things lined up right or 180 out.
1. could the throttle delaystalling be a throttle position sensor problem When mine went out on my tj it stalled at lights had a delayed acceleration and it did this for a while before the service engine light came on. 2. As for the sound he is hearing when putting the jeep in gear couldnt that just be the pattented Chrysler groan that all of the minivanslibertys make when putting them in gear. I have
it will not give me any codes...truck started and drove up into the driveway...i start it every day....it starts right up...but if i drive it it may not start.... I think its the Crank shaft position sensor...it idles rough....whats ur idea on that

I think its the Crank shaft position sensor...it idles rough....whats ur idea on that Could be crank sensor or camshaft sensor.....do you have a clean fuel filter Saw on another site (jeepkj.com) a similar problem that was fixed by replacing the Throttle position sensor (TPS)...may be worth a try.
My wife was getting a Cyl 3 misfire code. I changed all of the plugs with NGK G Power Platnium and replaced the 3 coil. They were all heavily carboned so I also went with new NTK O2 sensors which were also caked up with carbon. I seafoamed the engine before the plugs and cleaned the throttle body. Gas mileage is abysmal (15-17mpg) still. Now I get a random misfire code. Since it was the original battery
it apart once hooked in. I checked the tyre pressures and they are all the same and correct pressure. The tyres are the same size albeit the 2 fronts were Goodridge and the two rear were Goodyear. I swapped the tyres diagonally and got code C1027 (erratic performance) this time instead of C102A (comparative performance). Although after another reset and short drive Im back to C102A again.

My crank sensor went out and it was doing the same thing. Oh the cam shaft position sensor went out a few days later while driving with the crank sensor out and got worse. Fixed both and was good as new

thanks for the reply rich. i did a diagonistic test on the fuel injection system. basically took each wire harness that connects the the injectors and plugged an iode (light) to see if there was current being passed from the PCM. before this i actually replaced the fuel injector as i thought that would be the problem. each fuel injector had current from the PCM as indicated from the blinking light. i dont know how reliable the codes that are being thrown right now are as I have had several different codes that seem to come and go. i had a code for the crank shaft position sensor ( replaced the sensor ) which didnt lead to a fix. the only code that has been consistent through this process after several resets is the p0201. i have already checked the asd relay switched it with another that i knew was working. i have replaced the fuel injector. i pulled the injector out of the engine and tested it to see if it was actually spraying and it worked. i dont know how to test the pcm to see if that is working.. any suggestions one thing i noticed today when changing all the spark plugs is that all of them were completely black except for cylinder 2. the spark plug in cylinder 2 was coated in fuel and was clean.. no black carbon build up at all. i had tested all the coils and each had shown a spark with the plug in so this was baffling to me. also today i got a new code from which i find hard to believe but i will have to look into it. p1297 No Change in MAP From Start to Run. could these symptoms be bad gasoline we just filled up the jeep the day before this happened. any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you

Welcome to the XJ side I think you could reasonably expect to (almost) double the current reading on your odometer. Is yours an automaticmanual transmission Do you have four-wheel drive Keep an eye out for rust on the bottom though especially above the exhaust piping & beneath the rear seatsbench . . . moisture pools nicely right where the rear bench is bolted to the floor. If it ever begins to run
The Novak Guide to the New Process New Venture Gear 242 Transfer Case The jeep NP242 transfer case was introduced in the 1987 model year as a replacement for the NP228. The 242 premiered in the XJ Cherokee Wagoneer and MJ Commache as the SelecTrac option. It was used in the 1991-1998 ZJ Grand Cherokee. The 242 persisted throughout the full run of XJ Cherokees and continued on in the 2002 KJ liberty.
I was told for my swap (updating an 88 Comanche to 95 computer) to get the whole wiring harnes and that it had to be from a manual. The manual doesnt use a computer for the transmission like the autos. Plus you would need the EMC for a manual. Yeah it starts to add up. I would say 150-300 for the wiring harness(es) and 75-100 for the EMC. YOu might do better on E-Bay. I source mine from Daveys jeeps
Mine had almost the same symptoms. Turned out to be the Crank shaft position sensor. The wifes liberty Same symptoms same fix.
