Re: Symptoms of bad Crank Position Sensor? Thanks!
The symptom I experienced was, I would cruising down the highway at 55 mph and suddenly the RPMs would drop to zero for a second or two and then go right back to normal. Happen twice about two weeks apart and then the third time it was dead for good.
Chiltons (I assume you have the 84-98 cherokee manual) shows you the locations of all the drivability/emission components on a separate page, 4-31 or 4-32 in that manual.
camshaft position sensor is located in the distributor. never had a problem with that.
It's been two years, but i don't even think the engine will crank if it doesn't receive a crankshaft position sensor input.
