Crank Case Postion Sensor

For a 94 YJ wrangler 2.5l
Anybody ever replace on of these sensors
There seems to be no one that knows how to do the swap except the dealer... and the dealers are the devils.

I also check the chiltons and hayes manuals on the repair and nothing...
there are no instructions just swap it out.
I heard threw the grapevine that if you drop a bolt into the tranny... the engine and tranny will have to be separated..
Please help

i will start by saying i have NEVER done one.it cannot be that hard to do.you can see it from the top side if you are on the drivers side of your jeep.it just looks like it would be a pita to get at.might could go at it from the bottom side.btw don't let the dealer sucker you into the crap line "but sir,you will have to have your computer reset"i had dealings w/ a local dealership to track down an intermittent problem(long story)

95 yj...
who ever said putting a spool in a daily driver was a bad idea was just jealous he had not tried it first...

Well I dont know were your cps is but on a ford ranger it was at the front harmonic balancer and it had 2 bolts and a hard to unplug connector.But any way it was not that hard to do,so no matter were yours is located just becarefull not to drop the bolts.And try it.Try the free way first thna shell out the money if you mess it up. LOL Hope this
helps some.Later

After i did some checking and it is on the tranny.Looks like a no brainer 2 bolts and a wire clip like i thought.But I hope this is your problem.I never seen one go bad but I am sure its possable.The one I replaced a while back was broke off by the timming belt.Maybe thats why jeep put theres in the back.I dont think you will have to time it up before you get started.Just dont turn the motor until you install it first.But i cant see were this would be a problem.Later,gary

The CPS on the 2.5L banger is the same as on the 4.0L, same position same procedure, BUT it can all be done from the top, lots of room and you can actualy touch the CPS and it's mounting bolts with your hands. You would have to be all thumbs to drop the bolt into the tranny, will not say it can't happen.
