In this video I have a look at a Jeep Patriot that is having trouble running. It starts skipping, bucking, engine light flashing and has a code for the crankshaft sensor. Is that really what is wrong with it? Let's find out. -Enjoy!

    My 2011 Patriot is the same… too bad the last shop I took it to replaced the starter and the engine mount they were supposed to replace the CPK too but I doubt it cause now it's bucking worse… FML… do you think they didn't reset the ECU?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Desjardins says:

    I would like personally thank you kind sir I'm getting Sensor B bank one and I changed exhaust side without knowing thankfully I can put the Sensor on the intake side 😄 now to see if that fixes the issue

    What are those 3 clicks after you turn off the vehicle? Mine and others I've drove always clicks after I turn them off

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Monster squash Racing says:

    Great video. Could a faulty electronic throttle body or an cause a crank but no start on these cars. Thanks

    I have a hard enough time as it is being a passenger in a vehicle, but put your scope output in front of my face and I get really paranoid.

    The old reach around lol

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Super Nintendo says:

    On my jeep patriot, cylinder 2 has no signal from the sensor. So im running on 3 cylinders. Any idea why there is no signal being sent to my ignition coil? Coil is good and plug is good.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars P camper says:

    Hi, so am trying to figure out what to do next, i replaced the crank sensor and ran good for a day now but check engine light is back on????

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Norman says:

    Why do manufacturers continue to use CVT’s when no one really wants them?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Girton says:

    Eric. Any possibility of posting the cam crank pico file? I’m having a similar issue. Thanx for the great vijayos.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Abrams says:

    Hey Eric I just wanted to let you know that I just ran into this today .. set a P0300 P0315 and a P0335.. I would say the sensor to me was definitely shorted .. looked kinda like a waste spark coil firing . And I lucked out better then you guys did because mine was FWD.. definitely used parts of your video as a guide .. great help

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! torquewrench jeff says:

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nav Vet says:

    Those wire piercers are money! I shall pick up a pair stat!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zac Price says:

    I had a 2008 Jeep Patriot (check the pfp) and my god they are gigantic piles of shit. sold it to a buddy at 96K miles. TOLD him it needed the CVT flushed. He never did. it lasted 7 months before the belt slipped. got auctioned off later from a repo. prob in a jy now

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars theOmega says:

    63,000 miles same problem. I replaced the sensor but now it won’t start. Help please

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Harrell says:

    Still strange.

    Thank goodness they weren't making them like that in WW2.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Toxic Ph4ntom says:

    Faulty sensors show malfunction when heated. This or even old 83's Suzuki inline 4. You heat it up, sensor goes wild.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NorthsideChamps16 says:

    Mine is a 2015 2.0L Patriot sport. A friend changed the crank and both cam shaft sensors and that seemed to have fixed it. I had about 56k when this started happening. Jeep is crap.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harry Bonsell vlogs says:

    Have you ever messed with a Suzuki equator I hit a deer it's been in the body shop for two months just for body parts now it doesn't want to start no throttle response now it just cranks over they put new battery throttle body still no start never had any trouble before always ran great

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Olson says:

    replace the alternator. check the coils on the heads as well. your problems is alternator.. its throwing out wild amps. you can replace the weakest link if you want. its the alternator that is the problem.. she'll be in the shop again. another weakest link will fail. i know because i had the same issue… they need a recall on all alternators supplied on the jeep patriot.. i had 3 coils fail and the alternator.. one dealer replaced the transmission on a patriot and found out it was the alternator that was putting out wild amps. killing electronics

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars radon360 says:

    Have a relative with a 1991 Dodge Dakota (3.9L). It seemed to need a replacement sensor every 60k miles, almost like clockwork. At the 120k replacement, he started keeping a spare behind the seat. I see this Jeep is at about 66k…must be coincidence.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Parts shooter says:

    I had this happen… Similar symptoms, but what's obvious is the issue only exist under load. I had intermittent cam, also correlation code rarely!

    Next time, just fyi check the desired cam actual angle vs desired, if these aren't in synch-you'll have crank/cam codes because of poor actuation, i wound up eventually replacing oil control valve, oil changes would work temporarily

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Enceladus Fox says:

    I do love how car manufacturers always like to put things they know will ultimately fail deep under a bunch of stuff that has no access, it's time consuming and expensive to replace … Plus also frustrating for mechanics like your self how much involved you have to get for such a simple replacement of a sensor.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars S A K says:

    the Jeep with 66 thousand miles on it has a glitching ckp and people are call it trash. Seriously?!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PastBlast says:

    Jeep…hmmm…not sure what it would take to get me to buy one. Maybe if someone gave me one I might drive it for a month before selling it. Nah wouldn't want to take a chance. Just sell it right away.
