                    • Q:

                      Where exactly will this part be located on a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7L 8 cylinder? What is the best way to change it? Also, does this come with or need a line running from the sensor to the other electronics of the vehicle? All the instructional videos show a line being disconnected from the device.

                        Hi Will, good question! To get more specific information on the location of this part, I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle, not only will it show the location and also explain how to install, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle.

                    • Q:

                      2003 Dodge Dakota 4.7 engine. Rust in the sensor socket surrounds the device making the original opening much smaller than when the sensor was first installed at the factory. Before trying to replace it I am going to look at the connector and wiring. The intermittent signal going to the PMC might be a bad connection at the sensor. Since the wiring is in thermal wrap the designers must have recognized the danger of putting this sensor and wiring so close to the exhaust manifold. Bottom line: I'm not worried about the replacement part being correct as much as I am about overcoming the obstacles created by the designers poor choice placement. It is obvious to me that the wiring and connector would eventually succumb to heat damage and the sensor opening would rust over due to exposure to water and heat. Would sand blasting around the sensor before removal be a good idea if indeed it is bad and has to be replaced?

                        A:

                        Great question, BobGlow! You could certainly attempt to sandblast the area. From personal experience, I use rust penetrants to free those stuck parts. WD-40 Specialist Rust Penetrant Part No. 300004 or Blaster Penetrating Lubricant Part No. 16-PB. Make sure to give it a good long time to set in and sometimes you'll need to use an extra tool to provide more leverage or torque and sometimes just tapping to slowly twist the part free can help as well.
                        To find out the best option for your vehicle I do recommend speaking to a mechanic to get advice on your individual 2003 Dodge Dakota 4.7L as this may not work in all cases. If you need help locating a mechanic, try our 'Need repair help?' link further down this page. Also, I suggest a repair manual not only for removal procedures but installation as well in case there are any torque specifications you need to be aware of. Haynes Part No. 30022

                        The crankshaft sensor is located on the right hand side of the valve cover right below the valve breather tube. Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience.
