WJ 4.7 P0340 and P1391

Hi there,

Listen, I have looked into this plenty on the interwebs and am currently just looking for a quick solution/advice from someone who might have had the same problem. I completely understand that this topic has been covered hundreds of times, but I can't find a concrete solution, as this seems to be a complicated issue.

After replacing my girlfriend's crankshaft positioning sensor (Mopar from dealership) over the weekend because of no-starts and stalling issues, her '99 4.7 WJ ran fine for about a day. Now it's throwing P0340 and P1391 codes at me, indicating that something is going wrong with either the CMP or CKP. My only solution right now is to try a camshaft position sensor, and hope that fixes the problem.

Anyone have the same issue, or any advice for me?

I have had the same issues. Your best bet is whenever one CMP or CKP goes out replace the other with it and you should be good to go.

I had a failed camshaft position sensor. The jeep would crank and turn over but never fully start. I replaced the CPS with a MOPAR sensor and it fixed the problem a well as the code. The installation was pretty straight forward. CPS is somewhat underneath the battery tray, in that general area.

I had a thread going about CPS removal/reinstall. That thread even has pics. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/...p0340-1502345/

Hope that helps!
