Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Hello. my 4x4 1994 jeep grand cherokee with a 5.2 v8 stalls while driving and doesn't start. now it doesn't start at all, even after sitting for 2 days. i have read elsewhere that it could be the crankshaft sensor. it is throwing engine code 11 which is: No distributor reference signal detected during engine cranking. check the circuit between the distributor and the PCM. the guy at autozone swore up and down it was the distributor cap/and or wires and spark plugs. i am about 90 percent sure that its the crankshaft sensor. i bought a new one. now my question is, where is it exactly and whats the easiest way to change it? i think i have felt it with my hand against the firewall on passenger side. what do i have to take apart or remove to get to it? i have followed the step by step instructions in haynes book, but without good pics its useless. do you have an easy way to get to it and change it? without pulling out the motor lol?

Crank sensor is definitely on the bellhousing but most I've seen are on the drivers side at about 11 o'clock looking from the rear. regardless of exact position, it has to be in line with the flywheel. I suggest you do the continuity test at its harness before removal. Access is generally from underneath and you can only work with one hand,... No distributor signal may however indicate that the pickup coil inside the distributor has failed (also called cam sensor) Your book should also list a test for that but I believe it is listed as a stator there.

2000 jeep grand Cherokee stalls while drive or idling no codes


which engine? 2000 GC, is a body, stalling is and engine issues.

there are 5 reasons (physics) to stall, and 50 ways. (reality,say head valve stick hot only??? and lots more.)

ill not list them (searching shows my posts doings so 100 times)
but will ask you one questions.
can you save the stall with a fast right foot.??????????
ok 2 .
does the dash lamps (any ) go dead at stall point.?

the scan tool only works best , scanning and driving and for sure
at the stall point, so?
for example misfire codes clear in 1 second if gone.
so you missed that...... real time scanning is best, others like trips
to autozoned are near useless. IMO. why work, blind, ?

for better answers join a real jeep forum (google that)
this forum fxxxa , sux at this, it has NO structure here, nor abilities
to see your car, your engine, and others with issues related.

The 2001 Grand Cherokee limited 4.7 does the quarter mile in 15.563 seconds. The 2008 v6 Mustang does the quarter mile in 15.378 seconds. It is possible but unlikely. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

it's in your auto start system. mine does the same thing. after it sets fot 5 mins. it starts. if it is a factory installed auto-start, have dealer check. if it was installed by someone else, theirs a problem with installation or wired wrong.
