Re: Hard start; replaced CPS; CEL back on; won't start

So I replaced the Distributor Pick-up Coil (Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and it's been running perfectly with no engine codes for the past couple days.

Took maybe fifteen minutes to replace the part using only a Phillips screwdriver. Once I was done, I cleared the codes with the new scanner and nothing has resurfaced. I assume this cheap part won't last very long, but at least it was only $17 delivered (next day Prime). I may buy another and keep it in the Jeep, just in case.

I carry a spare brand new genuine Jeep Crankshaft Position Sensor and a used tested good genuine Jeep Cam Sensor in all three of my XJ's.

Re: Hard start; replaced CPS; CEL back on; won't start

Update: I replaced the Distributor Pickup Coil (Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and cleared the engine codes with my new scanner. It starts right up and runs fine. I've been driving it for about four days now and it seems to be fine.

This was an easy fix. Just a Phillips screwdriver and ten minutes work. The part was about the cheapest I could find (also the quickest with Next-Day Prime shipping), so I suspect it won't last more than a couple years, but I'm planning to buy spare OEM parts to keep on hand for the next time these go bad.

Ugh. Sorry about the redundant post. Gee, it sure would be nice if I could edit my own posts.
