Okay, I'm going to attempt to replace my crank position sensor this weekend in an effort to solve my "engine shuts off while idling" issue. Please refer to previous posts if you are curious as to what I've already replaced. :-) As far as actually replacing the CPS goes, should I expect a 3 hour ordeal that will leave me frustrated and bloody knuckles, or do I believe some of the other forum posts that make is sound like it takes 20 minutes to change this thing out? Several posts indicate that I would be time ahead if I drop the transmission mount and tackle it from beneath? Looking down from the engine bay, it almost looks like I could use a low profile socket, uv joint and a short extension and get the bolt out. Yet another thread said that they used the "hole in the drivers compartment" and it was easy to reach the bolt. Huh? If Jeep would have just put the bolt in the other way, this would be a 5 minute project.
Thoughts, which threads should I follow? This is for a 2000 TJ 4.0.
