wall5552: there were two engines used in 1992 Jeep Wranglers.
A 2.5 liter and a 4.0 liter. HOWEVER>>>> The location for the crank angle sensor is the same for both.
It is located on the bell housing up near the front at about the 10:00 PM position.
The Cam position sensor is located in the Distributor on both engines as well.

SOURCE: where is locate the camshaft position sensor on

The camshaft position sensor is located inside the distributor. It is a hall effect swich, simply remove the distributor cap and the rotor and you can lift it out, unplug and replace.
Have fun but beware a bad crankshaft position sensor can cause a false cam sensor code to be set sometimes.
Good luck.

If you still have a cap rotor and ignition wires, it's inside the distributor. If not, it is the part where the distributor used to be (center rear of the engine behind the intake manifold)

1997 jeep wrangler has a long start. I have changed the fuel pump, camshaft sensor. any other suggestions

There is a head temp sensor and intake air temp sensor, either of which could make the mixture too lean. Check them with an ohmmeter. Not sure the exact reading, but bad ones usually go 0 or infinite.

Will a faulty camshaft position sensor cut power to the fuel pump on a 1998 jeep wrangler?

If the computer does not see a signal from the crank sensor and the cam sensor it will not turn the asd relay on.
Best to test before buying either as other problems may exist. Chlton or haynes manuals are helpful and not expensive..

2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara

Long Crank Time Due To Possible Contact Of Camshaft Sensor To Camshaft Gear
This bulletin involves the replacement of the engine camshaft sensor.
2007 (JK) Wrangler
NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with a 3.8L engine (sales code
The customer may experience one of the following conditions:
a). Long engine crank time.
b). Two engine start attempts prior to engine starting.
c). Due to the “TIP Start Feature” on automatic transmission equipped vehicles, once the
ignition key / switch has been released from the “START” position, the starter may stay
engaged for up to 10 seconds while the engine attempts to start.
The above conditions may be due to the position of the camshaft sensor to the camshaft
gear. The sensor spacer gasket may have come loose during engine assembly and
caused the camshaft sensor to be adjusted too close or in contact with the camshaft gear.
If the above condition is present perform the Repair Procedure.

Engine ligth on .dianosed to be camshaft senor

The camshaft sensor is located inside the engine behind the valve covers. Usually a magnet with a single wire or set of wires. You will have to bring the car into a shop in order to have this properly fixed.
Please let me know if this helps.
