Jeep Cherokee Replacement Reference Sensor Information


Of the multitude of electronic and mechanical sensors installed on your Jeep Cherokee, the reference sensor, also called the crankshaft sensor, is a component that's vital to both engine performance and fuel economy. Its job is to monitor the speed and positioning of the engine crankshaft, which also provides data on the exact positioning of each of the engine pistons and the valves. This information is constantly made available to the engine control computer, which uses it in order to perfectly time fuel injection and combustion. By knowing the precise placement of each of the pistons, the computer can regulate all timing operations in a way so as to provide maximum power and economy. A malfunctioning reference sensor may cause a difficulty or inability to start the engine, backfiring or erratic engine RPM. It must be replaced, and PartsGeek.com carries a dozen replacement units to fit 1986-2001 Jeep Cherokees.
