If you have a distributor with a cap and ignition wires on it, you don't have a "formal" cam sensor. Later models do. However you do have a pickup coil under the distributor breaker plate that pretty much serves the same purpose. The cam sensor on later models replaces the distributor ...on 4.0 engines it is right in front of the oil filter where the distributor was.

If you still have a cap rotor and ignition wires, it's inside the distributor. If not, it is the part where the distributor used to be (center rear of the engine behind the intake manifold)

Where is locate the camshaft position sensor on 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo limited 4.7 l


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.
Good luck.

1999 jeep cherokee laredo camshaft sensor location on engine


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.
