What's this and why is it so angry?

So I found my crazy monkey noise. its coming from this:



Its the thing with the black cap to the right of the oil filter. When I start the Jeep up it make a horrible sound to me sounds like a laughing monkey! Either way, its gotten much worse today. What is it and how do I fix it?

Sorry for the crappy phone video but it lets you hear what it sounds like.

Anyone have a link to the TSB? I cant find it? My warranty's up. Does Jeep replace TSB items after warranty for free?

What you found at Auto-Zone is probably just the sensor (the electronic component). The part that has failed is most likely the 'tone wheel/drive shaft' portion... which in earlier models had been the distributor shaft assembly.

Agreed. It sounds like something is rubbing and it increases with engine speed.

Anyone have a how to or a parts breakdown? I can change it myself I just dont want to jack anything up. Everything I find when I search has to do with a distributor engine... mines an 06, distributorless...

I bought the whole assembly from the dealer for about $130 when mine went out earlier this year. I installed it myself.

How many miles on you Jeep?

I have the same set up, no issues, maybe the bushing is not getting lubricated and start squealing, should be an inductive pickup, not many moving parts.

anyone have the TSB?

I have a 2004 with almost 46,000mi

Not really sure, I wish I had one to take apart.

Lately there's been some Jeepers with the same issue. The Technical Service Bulletin will tell us

I have an 05 LJ with 55k miles and have yet to have any major problems. I have some weird clunking from my rear axle when i start moving slowly something, it's just random. Other then that I have no problems at all.
