Hello there, Sounds a bit pricey to me. As far as the fuel injection and throttle body services these are done for maintenance reasons, I am sure it is something you can do when it fits your budget.

Now as far as the cam and crank sensor if there is a problem with one of these sensors you will have a drivablity problem such as hard starting and a lot of times shutting down after the car warms up.

If your not experiencing any driveability problems with your vehicle I would suggest having the computer resset and see if your light comes back on or if they were false codes.

Good luck and I hope this helps you, Allen

Misfire on 2 and 5


Hi Paula,

You didn't mention if you changed the plug wires.

You mentioned replacing the camshaft sensor. Have you checked the Crankshaft Position Sensor? Or the Mass Air Flow Sensor (may need cleaning)? Or the Throttle Position Sensor?

Have 87 jeep comanche, have been told it has a cam shaft sensor, to keep it in time , if so where is it located? the engine is a 4.0


The cam sensor is located in the distributor.check the cylinder compression, check for ignition spark, check for fuel injector pulse and fuel pressure.

Have you checked the cam sensor? Also does that vehicle have a "throttle position sensor"? Some cars use both MAP and MAF sensors, not sure about your particular vehicle but if it is one of those, cleaning the MAF wouldn't hurt. Good luck.

The reason I'm checking the timing belt is that there is mis-fire in 1 & 2 cylinder. If the firing order is 1,2,3,4. I have continues fire out of 1 & 2, when plug wires are pulled out of head. 3...


unplug the fuel injectors, check the olhms on all. the readings should all be the same, around 11-11.5 olhms. Any readings that are higher is a sign of a bad injector which is what your problems sounds like., putting to much fuel to a cylinder causing different fuel amounts to each cylinder and causing it to backfire out of the throttle body , excess fuel . Also remove the throttle body and clean with cleaner and a toothbrush after replacing any injectors. Or there's a simpler answer and that the cambshaft is worn-out/round causing the lifters not to open enough to let in all the fuel. A worn belt would not cause misfires only on select cylinders but rather jump timing, slipping a notch on a gear and possibly bending a valve or valves and this cause a loud clacking or a really a sign to quit running the motor because it's broke! Good luck.

Ok...so i have 1987 Jeep Cherokee. 4.0L manual transmission..etc.. it used to crank for a little while and then fire right up, however, now it just will crank and crank and crank and never turn over! what...


Extended cranking is the first sign of a fuel problem. Either the fuel pump is now not working or you have a leaking injector, bleeding off pressure. if plugs have wet fuel on them look at injectors. If engine briefly starts when you spray carb cleaner into throttle body look to the pump or filter. Once fuel system has been checked, look for spark. If none, find out why.

No injector pulse, no current to the injector


Check the pickup in the distributor as this is the cam sensor. The injectors run of the pulses created while the rotor is turning around. It should be a plastic disk located under the rotor button.

Jeep Cherokee won't start, turns off, etc.


Did you have the same cranking with no start problem with original engine or did the problem begin when you changed it? I would check codes if you have not already, and would also clean business end of idle air valve (next to tps) DO NOT turn the end plunger while cleaning or it may not seat properly. Do not loose the rubber "o" ring while working either!

1995 jeep cranks over a LONG time before it will finally start


sounds like yor car is in limp home mode. Funny name I know but its true. You may have lost your cam sensor so it went it this mode. A car won't start with out a crank senor but it will with out a cam sensor it just takes a few revolutions of the engine. Find your cam sensor and replace it hope this helps you
