My distributor in my 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee 318 v8 5.2L decided to blend. The magnet for the hall effect cam sensor fell out of its plastic bracket inside the distributor and ground up the insides of the distributor which through ODB1 code 54. In this video I show how to replace the distributor and set it so the timing is correct. The computer does most of the timing work on this vehicle but it is critical to get the distributor housing and rotor set correctly when the engine is at top dead center (TDC) of cylinder number 1 on the compression stroke.
