What causes the CPS to go bad repeatedly in a 2001
USA car or the Export?
tell me what CPS means. we dont use that name since 1990
no engine stated, so how would we answer such a questions.
4.0L or 4.7L or 5.7L ?engine.
my guess is the cam sensor? or the crank sensor?
CKP or CMP?
how often once a week, decade, ?
all parts on care fail repeatably say in 100 years
but my guess i means, inside 5 years, but what, do say.
clear facts make answers very easy.
my wild guess.
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 4.0L 6 cylinder engine is bolted to the top of the oil pump drive shaft assembly. The sensor and drive shaft assembly is located on the right side of the engine near the oil filter.
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 3.7L V6 engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head.
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 4.7L V-8 engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head.
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 5.7L V8 engine is located on right side of timing chain cover below alternator.
The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) on the 4.0L 6 cylinder engine is mounted to the transmission bellhousing at the left/rear side of the engine block The CKP on the 3.7L, 4.7L and 5.7L engines is located at the left rear of the engine just above the starter motor.
now may guess based on those 2 sensors above.
the CAM SENSOR (in pure english) fails for heat.
all have a tendancy to fail for too much heat,
and for overheating the engine.
the closer it fits the the engine, the more likely it will fail. (heat)
some that fit to cam ends love to fail soon., heat.
failure mode 2 is overvoltage.
if the Alternator goes bad and overvoltage , in fact over 15v
any electronic part can fail, even light bulbs.
using a pressure washer can wreck just about anything made.
dropping it to the concrete,
you, others, or the shipper,
a dumb ,mechanci , hot wired it and burned it up, or injured it. (called the walking wounded)
that pretty much covers it.
but what sensor exactly and what engine.
and how long did it last in months
