Crankshaft Position Sensor. It's located just under the oil sender on the bottom front of the engine. Crankshaft position/speed sensor is an induction coil that goes into a hole in the side of the block and monitors a notch or bump on the crank for crankshaft position. It is held in by one small bolt....unfortunately, you have to pull the front motor mount bracket so you need to pull starter motor mount etc. to get it out of the block. Not a 5min job, but doable for anyone who knows his/her way around a basic tool box. Need to support engine while the front mount is off.-------------- Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Truck quit running, is getting fuel, spark, timing is dead on, local shop said it may be crank pos sensor or cam pos sensor,where are they located/

Very possible. I would check the sensor with a meter. I would say it most likely the crank shaft sensor. Some are located behind the pulley area and some are located at the back of the engine where the transmission meets the engine. Good Luck

1998 Jeep Cherokee -- car won't start. Turns over

have scanned to find problem code to get an idea of what it is. .it may either be the crank or cam sensor, check the crank sensor first. if it is bad it sends wrong timing info to pcm. therefore jeep will not start!! It is either the camshaft or crankshaft positioner. I would check the crank pos. first. Zach Cabot, AR
