code p1391 and misfiring

Hey everyone,

I have just started having in issue with my WJ. I drove home to MI from IL (4hr trip) with no issues and two days later i got in and my jeep was running real rough and "chugging" Code p1391 came up.

Now this isn't the first time i have this code, i have already replaced toe cam and crank position senors 3 times (in about a year) first two with autozone sensors and 3rd with Mopar.

I just changed the camshaft position sensor out again (4th time) with a Mopar part. After replacing it is still running real rough.

Now my question is, what else could be causing this issue? I have been reading and have seen talk of bad timing chains, or tone wheels etc.. How would i check for this? Any help diagnosing this problem would be great. I need to be back to IL by the 30th, so need to figure this out ASAP.

thanks in advance to everyone.

update, also have code P0320 showing. Which is crank position sensor. Is there anyway to test the sensor before replacing? Also how would i go about testing the harness/ connector for a short? Seeing as this is my 3rd sensor I'm thinking maybe an electrical problem with the harness or the connector.

mine was doing the same thing. i believe that it was that code p1391 it was throwing. i have a 4.0 and had a bad coil strip. it was around 100.00 for all new coils. they come as one unit. problem fixed.

I have the same problem/codes... Crank sensor and all three coils. I had the dealer replace just the crank sensor, it didn't do s***.
