1999 jeep cherokee laredo camshaft sensor location on engine
Hi, my daughter has a 1999 laredo and all of a sudden it started dying out for no reason and very little warning. All the gauges drop, there are no warning lights. Sometimes it will start back up and others it takes awhile. It seems to happen when the car gets warm like after driving for awhile. I have talked t a few people and they said it could be the camshaft sensor or crankshaft sensor. I have the parts, only problem is don't know the location on the engine for these parts. Please Help!
Does it quit all of a sudden? I have a 99 Cherokee that developed a stall problem... totally random and unpredictable... difference being I discovered I could at least get it restarted by replacing a fuse it was blowing.... eventually was discovered to be an exposed wire making contact with the firewall.
Your problem could very well be a crank sesor. The location of this is
on the bell housing drivers side on top. I don't remember there being a
camshaft sensor, unless your refering to the sensor in the distributor.

Hi there: Check Grand Cherokee Jeep Limited 1999/2000, the CKP sensor is located on the
right side (driver side) at the end of the engine block when you open
the hood and facing the engine block..the sensor sits on the bell
housing..It has its cable connector end pulled all the way to the left
side of the engine block and connected there, so you may have to first
locate and grab that connector cable end, near the oil filter at that
left side at the end of the engine block , and then you feel and trace
the connector cable all the way through the back of the engine block
back to the CKP sensor on the right end side of the engine block in
order to easily locate the sensor.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important
and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some
testimonial comment about this answer.
P0340 JEEP - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit engine cylinder Bank 1 Sensor 1
Possible causes- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted - Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor - Faulty starter motor - Starting system circuit - Dead (Weak) battery
Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can can trigger a Camshaft Position Sensor code.
I'm assuming the engine is still running and no engine noise has occured due to loss of oil pressure, and it is just the gauge that is not reading? If so, the oil pressure switch that is located on the camshaft sensor, could have a bad connection or the oil sensor will need to be replaced. The oil sensor is located on the left side of the engine and is mounting horizontally on the camshaft sensor housing.
The camshaft position sensor is located inside the distributor. It is a hall effect swich, simply remove the distributor cap and the rotor and you can lift it out, unplug and replace.
Have fun but beware a bad crankshaft position sensor can cause a false cam sensor code to be set sometimes.
