Long Crank Time Due To Possible Contact Of Camshaft Sensor To Camshaft Gear
This bulletin involves the replacement of the engine camshaft sensor.
2007 (JK) Wrangler
The customer may experience one of the following conditions:
a). Long engine crank time.
b). Two engine start attempts prior to engine starting.
c). Due to the â€œTIP Start Featureâ€? on automatic transmission equipped vehicles, once the ignition key / switch has been released from the â€œSTARTâ€? position, the starter may stay engaged for up to 10 seconds while the engine attempts to start.
The above conditions may be due to the position of the camshaft sensor to the camshaft gear. The sensor spacer gasket may have come loose during engine assembly and caused the camshaft sensor to be adjusted too close or in contact with the camshaft gear.
