In addition; the 4.7 L V8 sensor is located at the rear of the crankshaft, the 5.2-5.9 l V8s on the engine block behind the right-hand cylinder head.

Always tell us the important parameters of your car, as you can see, the Jeep is made with a variety of engines and they differ greatly.

    On your 4.0 L six, look for it located on the left (driver's side) rear of the engine on the bell housing; that is the large housing surrounding the transmission.

    There will be a wiring harness with several wires plugged into a connector next to the cylinder head.

    Looking at the engine from under the hood, this will be on your right and is held on the outer rim of the housing with two bolts.

    Try disconnecting and re-connecting the plug before you replace it, it could simply be a matter of lost conductance in the connector.



    The new sensor should have a paper spacer that is absolutely necessary to avoid the sensor touching the flywheel which will destroy it.

My 97 sunfire has a bad cranck shaft sensor. where is that located? would it also make the car not start?


Yes it would and will make the car not start. Your crank sensor is located behind your harmonic balancer, which is the large pulley that turns all the belts. THe one that is coming off the crank shaft.

1995 bmw 318i will not start once the car is up to operating tempature, once turned off it seems that it must cool down to be able to start again.


Possible causes: Fuel pump relay, Pump, Fuel Filter, Regulator, Crank Shaft Sensor, Camshaft Sensor, Loos Connection(try to wiggle the wiring harness and observe). or faulty Ignation Switch.

Observe if the engine will lack of power first before to shut off, if this is the scenario it could be a fuel pump relay or pump. I suggest you to monitor the fuel pressure first or try to swap fuel pump relay to other as long as same color or figure and observe it.

If the senario is sudden cut off, it coud be a faulty cranck shaft sensor. a faulty cranck shaft sensor is easy to determine using tachometer while cranking, if the sensor is faulty the tachometer will not move or rise even a little bit if it's good it will rise a bit while cranking the engine.

Check fuel pump when the problem occur, try to ignition ON/Off and listen to fuel pump motor noise from underneath (close to rear right side tire), the pump will operates for aprox 5 sec. everytime you turned ON the ignition switch. and if you can't hear noise then you have to focus to fuel system.
