Hello,

Was wondering if anyone had replaced the camshaft position sensor on a 2007 Compass 2.0L??? I am getting code P000A bank 1 camshaft slow response on the OBII readout. I need to know the sensor's location so I can change it out. I have a diagram of the 2.4L but it is very vague/unclear. It's very cold right now in MD and I don't want to fooling around under the hood looking all over the engine bay for the location of this sensor. From what I have read, it is simple part to replace. I just can't find a good diagram of the 2.0L motor anywhere.

Thanks-

jamapp, where you able to locate the camshaft position sensor on your jeep? if so could you maybe send a photo showing its location? I thinks I may need to be replacing mine too.

Located sensor and swapped out 2 weekends ago. CEL came back on shortly thereafter w/ same P000A code. Spark plugs replaced and oil/filter changed out this past weekend. Jeep runs a lot better on roads/highways. Jeep is parked in a garage daily and seems to have trouble w/ a smooth start/crank in the afternoon. It cranks before turning over. Battery was also tested a few weeks back and is good. If CEL comes back on, it will have to go in for further diagnostic tests as I am out of answers...

Some of the part sources sites may have photo's and info as to its location.
Good luck!

I though the one thing that was solid was the World Engine they use. I hope this is a one off problem. Some other vehicles have their sensors on the back (tranny end) of block.

Just passed 45,000 miles and it only had the 3/36 Warranty. Got it in February 2007 before the Lifetime Warranty came out in July. Hopefully, the new plugs and fresh oil do the job.

Im with you on that jamapp hope that Jeep stays running strong with no problems.
tripplec, thanks for the attachment, a bit fuzzy but I think I was able to determine the camshaft sensor on the passenger side back of the cylinder head. Not with my Jeep right now but I will definatlely take a look at it tomorrow.

That diagram shows 2 camshaft position sensor locations 1/1 and 1/2. I replaced the 1/1 on the driver's side. If my CEL comes back on, the 1/2 may be have to be replaced but honestly I don;t know know at this point.

That was the quality of it as it was when I found it. yeah fussy but at the back side of the engine near each end it appears. I thought it better than no image for you.

Good luck.

The picture is great-it is what I used to do the job. In fact, it's the only one I located on the web. Also, it was identified as the 2.4L, not that it really matters that much. Hopefully, others will benefit from it.

FONT CAMSHAFT SENSOR REMOVAL:

1. Remove the air cleaner hose to throttle body, disconnect the inlet air temperature sensor electrical connector.
2. Disconnect negative battery cable.
3. Disconnect electrical connector from camshaft position sensor.
4. Remove camshaft position sensor mounting screws.

REAR CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR REMOVAL:

1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Disconnect electrical connector at sensor.
3. Remove nut retaining heat shield.
4. Pull heat shield out to uncover sensor.
5. Remove mounting bolt.
6. Remove sensor.

FRONT CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR INSTALLATION:

1. Lubricate O-Ring.
2. Install camshaft position sensor utilizing twisting motion. Make sure sensor is fully seated. Do not drive sensor into the bore with screw. This can cause sensor to be incorrectly seated causing engine to fail. Tighten sensor mounting screws to 9 Nm (79.5 in. lbs.) .
3. Carefully attach electrical connector to camshaft position sensor. Installation at an angle may damage the sensor pins.
4. Install the negative battery cable.
5. Install the air cleaner to throttle body hose, connect the inlet air temperature sensor electrical connector.

REAR CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR INSTALLATION:

1.Lubricate sensor O-ring.
2. Install sensor utilizing twisting motion. Make sure sensor is fully seated. Do not drive sensor into the bore with screw. This can cause sensor to be incorrectly seated causing engine to fail.
3. Install mounting bolt and tighten to 9 Nm (79.5 in. lbs.) .

diagram is wrong, but did help find the first one, Thanks

OK the diagram I found on here was wrong, but did help find first one, there are two camshaft sensors, if your standing in front of the motor they are both located on the drivers side valve covers at 12 and 6 oclock, on the corners. They each have 3 wires comimg out of them. the one on the back side of the motor is pretty easy to see but the one in front is coverd by air cleaner duct work.
I still don't know which is bank intake (A) bank 1 so im changing both.
Still would like any in ut if anyone has any thanks
