2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 limited. It has 4wd. 72,xxx miles on it.
So basically here is the deal I start the truck up and drive, and while driving it will just cut out or shut off completely. Just dead. I will restart it and it might be okay for a little bit but it will shut off again. One of the times the Check Gauges light came on and there was 0 oil pressure. But after I restarted it there was no issue. Sometimes it shuts off right after starting up. I just replaced the TPS sensor and that had no change on the car at all. Not sure what to do. Should I have it towed to the dealer?
You never want to use any non Mopar/Jeep sensors in a Jeep. The WJ's electrical system is sensitive enough that the tolerances in "parts store" sensors are not close enough to factory specs. Especially on the crank sensor, since it's a pain in the butt.
Okay so I bought the sensor. I get no codes at all on my car. 0 codes. I would like to say I tried to remove the starter and that was damn near impossible. Is there another way to replace this sensor? I was not sure how to remove that starter.
Starter is easy to take out. Once the bolts are out you move the starter out of the way. you dont have to disconnect any of the wires. Cps is a breeze to change then. However you may find out its not your cps. I went thry something similar last year with my jeep. Ended up being the pcm. Check the thread in my sig.
