It may be PCM programming, was the relearn feature used with a scan tool or did you just replace the sensor by yourself. The PCM may relearn over time by itself in the newer Cherokees, but Im not positive about that because of the year of your vehicle

Hi i have 90 model daihatsu feroza was running fine but all of a sudden started running really rough then not at all and now just backfires when try to start it,crank angle sensor maybe?

could be crank angle sensor or cam angle sensor or problem ignition control module
I am inclined to think wire problems to the sensors as they either work or not but bad wires or bad connections will make or break a circuit and the will cause the backfire situation
run the fault codes to find other possible causes

1993 Subaru impreza wagon cranking but will not start not getting fuel to the engine

Could be all sorts of things. If the timing belts have slipped, the engine will usually not start or run really rough. Could be the crank angle sensor (under the alternator, just above the main pulley).

If the belt has slipped, you can check by pulling the cam belt covers off. Usually its the LHS side belt that's jumped. The hydraulic tensioner sometimes works loose and detensions the belt. Rotate the engine till to top dead center on the pulley, and see if the cam pulleys are at the timing marks. If the belt has slipped, you WILL have bent valves.

Replaced transmission now it will not start

some vehicles have crank angle sensor fitted to belhousing, by removing trans can damage the sensor or may be forgot to connect the socket. also if its a manual and has a dual mass flywheel then excessive play on dual mass can upset the crank angle sensor timing

I have an automatic, toyota 4runner. The RPMs are high when driving normal (like 4) going 80+ kph (im in japan, hence the kph). I know this isn't normal. Sometimes, it will "shift" gears and go...

The transmission depends on input from the vss, crank sensor, and tps for shift points. Assuming the speedometer is working, I recommend you run the test below on the tps. Also put the connector back on the tps and check the voltage on terminal VTA with the key on by probing the back of the connector. Open the throttle gradually and verify that the voltage increases linearly with throttle opening. If not, replace the tps.

Throttle Position Sensor OPERATION Throttle position sensors are usually mounted on the side of the throttle body. The sensor detects the throttle valve opening angle. The voltage of terminal VTA increases in proportion of the opening angle of the throttle valve. The ECM judges the driving conditions from the input signals of the terminals, and uses them as one of the conditions for deciding the air/fuel ratio correction, power increases and fuel cut-off control.

TESTING 3VZ-E and 1FZ-FE Engines
  1. Confirm that the throttle valve is fully closed.
  2. Connect an ohmmeter to terminals IDL and E2.
E2 is the bottom terminal, while terminal IDL is positioned directly above it.
3. Insert a 0.020 in. (0.50mm) thick feeler gauge between the throttle stop screw and lever. Check for continuity between terminals IDL and E2 of the sensor. Continuity should be present.
4. Insert a 0.031 in. (0.80mm) thick feeler gauge between the throttle stop screw and lever. Check for continuity between terminals IDL and E2 of the sensor. Continuity should not be present.

The Car turns off when I'm at a stop for a long time..

could be the crank angle sensor. If that's the problem the ECU under the passenger seat (sedans) or passenger carpet (coupes) will read out the code for it.

if it's the crank angle sensor that's bad, your car will run rough (rpm will fluctuate and it may hesitate) and will stall sometimes.

can be $1000 to fix at the shop, but you can find a DIY online and do it for $70. Took me 2 hours, and I know nothing about cars. And you don't have to remove the timing belt either. good luck!

Engine cranks. sparks but does not start. fuel pressure ok

Have you replaced the crank sensor? The crank sensor on top of the trans. bell housing does control the injector pulse through the ECM.
The sensor is a common problem with the Jeeps. Sometimes the sensor stops working when the engine is hot and will start again when it cools off and sometimes it dies from oil leaking on top of it or it just dies.
