Update - CMP making a ticking noise

The Camshaft Position Sensor is making a considerably loud ticking (tapping) noise. with the engine running, the ticking noise subsides a little once is gets hot. Is that normal?

35,000 miles


UPDATE - The wife brought the jeep into the jeep dealer. the "Shaft W/Gear, Oil Pump Drive" was bad. They replaced it. No more tapping. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

are you sure you aren't hearing the injectors fire?

you can put a finger on an injector while the jeep is running and feel them fire...see if it relates to your clicking..

I sure wouldn't worry about it either way...

Re: CMP making a ticking noise

I agree, the injectors can tend to be pretty loud. You can also try a screwdriver to listen to it. Just hold it up against the injector, and then your ear up against the screwdriver.
