Jeep Grand Cherokee engine sounds like it's missing

I just had my crankshaft position sensor replaced, now the mechanic says it runs like **** and the engine sounds like it's missing. Any thoughts on what the problem could be?

    The engine light had come on and off a few times and then the car stalled out. I was able to restart it and make it into a repair shop across the street (lucky me). They changed the crank sensor and the jeep was running just fine. When i came to pick it up he said that when he moved it to the front from around back it was running like s*** (to quote him). And said that it sounded like the engine was missing. i have no idea what that means.

    What was the original problem? I suggest that mechanic run a new code check and also look at the plugs, and make sure no one crossed any ignition wires while testing.

Stuff like this really aggravates me... I ran a shop for over 30yrs and ALWAYS test drove everything. From a shop owners perspective, sending a vehicle out the door running like garbage is the best way of making sure the customer will never come back! (and that person WILL tell their friends!) I maintained a less than 2% comeback rate, and NEVER had to advertise, though business continually grew.What I said in my last post still holds true... if you have a shop that regularly does your work, have them go over it if you are not confident the first shop can fix it without "ripping you off"

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee cuts off while driving


Sounds a whole lot like a dirty or malfuncitionig idle air control valve. A coil would generally show up as a miss under load or high rpm, crank sensors generally work or they dont, only sometimes giving you a miss, but that would be all the time at any rpm. Computer, I doubt for too many reasons to list. Could also be related to a bad throttle position sensor or a very slight vacuum leak.

No fire to coil from coil on 96 model Jeep Grand Cherokee.


You need to put the harmonic balance for the 96 jeep on this motor,then put the crankshaft sensor on for the 96 jeep on the vehicle,this should fix you up.The crankshaft sensor and the harmonic balance have to go together.If I can be further help,let me know.>>roniecon@gmail.com

Jeep Grand Cherokee engine sounds like it's missing


i think your barking up the wrong tree here,it sounds like it needs the computer on it and someone to drive whilst the other person monitors it or a rolling road.Its all very well changing this sensor or that one but without knowing exactly you could waste more money than what it would cost putting it into a dealer with mechanics with product knowledge
