1988 Jeep Comanche 2wd Eliminator 4.0 I6 from North America
Fun, easy to work on and reliable
CPS (Crank Position Sensor)
I bought this sporty little truck as a second vehicle that I planned to use to haul minor loads of whatever and do some minor off-pavement exploring. As it turns out I quite enjoy driving it.
I did the usual maintaince when I first got it (plugs, wires, cap/rotor, oil/filter). Also, the alternator was pretty weak and the radiator was also looking pretty rotten so I replaced both.
About a week after I had the truck, it wouldn't start one morning. It sounded like it wasn't getting any spark. After a few hours research on the net I came to the conclusion that the problem was the result of the CPS (Crank Position Sensor) failing. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and away we went. Some people said it was usually just the connector that was at fault, but I decided to change out the whole sensor and harness.
I found parts relatively cheap (compared to Japanese or European autos) and did all the labor myself.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
