Country1,

Good on ya' if on it's only the CPS that's bad. You don't want them tearing into your engine. I'd love to hear back from you after the new part is in and even perhaps after 1000 miles or so, if you could re-examine the new part and give us a report.

Iceman, yeah, I'll be paying close attention to the new CPS gear. I'll post back with an update.

Got a call this morning and was told the CPS housing that was on back order for another 2 weeks was going to be in next Tuesday. That's good news!
I'll be glad when all this is over....

I've been following this thread for some time now and check my block and found I was in the range for this issue. I was dreading to pull OPDG and see what sort of damage has happened.
So today I was going through my paperwork when I purchased my Jeep used, and to my suprize the dealer gave me a Coverage Report. It indicates that back in '05 recall E05 was completed and the OPDG was replaced. Just figured I'd post in case any of you also recieved one of these reports when you purchased your jeep.

Hello All,

I have an LJ that was built within the dates mentioned above. I have called 2 dealerships, and tired to contact Chrysler. Nobody knows what I am talking about. My Jeep has 26K on it, and seems to run just fine. Can anyone give me some tips on how to get this taken care of?

Best,

David

The only way to be sure is to pull it yourself and look at the gear. You'll know right away if you are starting to have the problem. See the pics in this and other posts to compare yours to. If those dealers don't know what you are talking about...maybe you are not talking to the right person there. Or, they sell so few Jeeps they DONT know, or...they are giving you the canned answer until you show up with a problem they can see in living color.

It's not hard to check it yourself. However, if this is not possible for you, keep calling other Jeep dealers, maybe you will find one who can assist, even pull and inspect it for you. It will probably cost a couple hundred bucks but you'll get piece of mind I suppose. Me, I would want to be standing there and inspect the gear the moment it comes out of the engine. I hear stories of hungry dealers doing work that is not needed.

Best of luck.

Can someone post the list of affected VIN#'s? This would answer a lot of questions for a lot of people.

I would like to know if all 4.0L Jeeps built within this time period are going to have problems with this at some time or was it a case of an unknown number of defective parts used during this build period therefore all built during this time period are suspect.

My 05 has 21,000 miles with no problems at all so far. Also my VIP summary (received from a dealership) does not mention a recall or any work of this type being done. Also, looked for the label with p/n and date code and mine does not have the label,as indicated here.

Vehicles aren't built in the order of their VIN's so you can't say the problem starts with one VIN and ends at another. To generate a list would require showing every single individual VIN. The best way to tell is by using the build dates listed in the first post.

I didn't read ALL the posting in this thread, but if you enter your VIN number at Jeep.com, does this recall item show up, or is this one of those "under-the-tabel" recalls (ie. if the customer finds out...deny, deny, deny...then they fix the problem for a pro-rated fee)?

I bought a 06 LJ back in February this year with 24,000 miles on it. It was built in 2-06 and the engine code is 601MX09. After reading this thread I pulled the CPS sensor.





The biggest thing I noticed is that the wear mark around the shaft is uneven. On one side its about an inch long but as you rotate the shaft it gets smaller till your at 180 degrees and its about half the size of the marks on the other side.

What do you guys think, is this or the start of abnormal wear ??

I'd say yes - the smaller/smoother marks appear normal, while the longer marks with the striations in them do not. I wonder if a gear can be inconsistently hardened from one section to another? If so, that's what this looks like to me...

Anyone know what years of these things are the same? Like.... is an OPD out of a 2000 the same as one out of an 06? Or are they not interchangeable at all?

I need one, because mine is squealing really bad, BUT they are on national back-order with no guarantee of delivery until MAYBE late August.

My Jeep is not driveable in this condition, and this is unacceptable at this time of year.

I'm thinkin of goin with a used one for now, but need to know what years will fit in what other years.

I just checked my 05 with a 5-05 build date and the number was not close to the tsb and the gear and cam looked fine for 35K miles. Wear was even all over the teeth.Took about 30 min to check just to be sure.
