Symptoms of bad Crank Position Sensor? Thanks!

Could anyone take the time to repeat (I'm sure) the symptoms of a bad CPS. Also, where exactly is it located and how do I get to it?

Chiltons only says the flywheel and gives no general overview.

My symptons are all of a sudden poor starts (cranking good like before) and after it's turned off on occasion it will not restart but good cranking).

Anybody have experience with the CAMSHAFT Position Sensor (CMP) Dealer doesn't even list it.

Thanks, Steve

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.
