Wj 2002 grand cherokee 4.0 cam/cam sensor adjustment cause problems?

so i had a problem where my IAC motor was bad but im still having a problem with my idle being high after starting it . so i have to bring it back to those retards. the tech had his machine on my jeep and said the cam sensor or cam was " OFF" so he " ADJUSTED" it. would that now have the components related to the cam be hitting in different spots possibly throwing things off from worn in parts making the engine louder?????

Was the 'tech' at a jeep dealer? If not, the only way he could have accurately adjusted the cam sensor was with a DRBIII tool which is extremely expensive.

Adjusting the CPS won't cause anything to 'hit' another part. It adjusts your fuel trim and will make it run horribly/not at all if it's adjusted too far out.

If he used the DRBIII machine, you should be good. Look into replacing the TPS and cleaning the throttle body while you're at it.
