Answer . Sensor is to the side of the oil filter in the front of the car. From underneath the front of the car, you can see/ feel the sensor next to the filter. This is from memory, but I want to say that I removed the filter to offer me more room to change the sensor.
Answer IT'S UNDER THE POWER STEERING PUMP YOU HAVE TO REMOVE IT TO GET IT OUT. Was able to replace the cam shaft sensor by removing the alternator,didnt have to remove the power steering pump.Used an extended mirrir to locate the sensor and removed it with a 1/4" drive 10mm long socket.NOTE: The al…ternator comes out by reoving 2 bolts, lay it off to the side and reach down and you can feel it. GOOD LUCK> It could be on either end of the cylinder head, or in a distributor. (MORE)
I believe I have an answer for this, or somewhat of and answer. I have a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron, and I have had it stall on me while it is running, or when stopped at a stop sign, then it not be able to start back up for a while, or sometimes it will start right up. I googled it one day, and what I s…tumbled across was that it supposedly is the fuel pump. The 1994 and 1995 LeBaron has a faulty issue with the fuel pump that causes the engine to stall, and a few of the warning lights to come on. I have had this happen to me about 4 or 5 times, and all in convienient locations. I found this question googling for more information on the topic. If I could site the page I read that at, I would. But if you google it, I am sure you will come across the same info I have. OR, try calling your Chrysler dealership. I have yet to do so, being as how ours just closed in town. (MORE)
For the 2.7l engine, it is located behind a silver heat shield held on with three bolts behind the right(rear)exhaust manifold. It can only be viewed and removed from the bottom side of the vehicle.
Yes, it can, but it's probably not your problem. The cranksensors on those vehicles hardly ever fail. Most likely if theengine is stalling while coming to a stop, you probably have eithera faulty Idle Air Control Valve or a vacuum leak, possibly a faultyPCV hose assembly. I have finally fixed my st…alling problem in my 2003 ford expeditionand wanted to share the repair with you, first of all for thesafety of our families, and the cost of everything the mechanicsthink is wrong (even most ford mechanics are not aware of this fix)I have been lucky and never did the coil packs, fuel pump and newthrottle body and valve. I did waste money on the camshaft sensorand IAC control valve; I did keep the old one so I have a back upif I need it in the future. I didn't try the high octane fuel fixbecause I heard of this year throwing spark plugs which are bigbucks to repair. Putting on this part and looking at the old onemakes me think I didn't even need a new one, but didn't know whatto expect when I bought it. The bracket connects the alternator tothe positive terminal on your battery. If you start at the battery+ terminal it has 2 red wires coming out of it. They are bothusually red and about the same thickness. One of them goes into along black rectangle clip that says "fusible Link" or somethinglike that. Then comes out the other side and goes to thealternator. Past the fusible link box there will be 2 wires thatsplit off of this wire. If you are in front of the truck one wireruns towards you and is pretty short. It plugs into another wire.The second wire is longer and it runs away from you THIS IS thewire you need to follow. It runs back towards the battery into aplug under it. Follow this wire from where it comes off of the bigwire. You will find it resting on a silver/aluminum tube (its an ACpipe) Flip the wire over where it is touching this pipe, you willfind the wire is rubbed down to the bare metal! It is randomlyshorting out your engine and you will STALL. If I didn't by thepart I would try to tape it up, tape the pipe it rests on as wellor get some foam tubing for the pipe, if the wires are too worn,looks like you could always use a wire nut. (MORE)
the 98 to 2000 sebring coupes with a 2.5 has the cam sensor built into the distributor. you must buy a new or reman one the range from 198.00 to 450.00 depending on the model your car is.
98 Chrysler sebring jx conv stalled what could cause no fuel pressure in fuel line besides fuel pump relay and bad pump or clogged filter without dropping fuel tank what should I check to find problem?
Answer . \na bad fuel pressure regulator may also give you low fuel presure , if is stuck open it would not allow the system to build up pressure.
Most cam sensors are attached with a single bolt. just a matter of locating the sensor, removing the wire to it then unbolting it. Refitting is the reverse of the above.
ANSWER :. Go to auto parts,buy a Manual Book for your dodge 2002 intrepid.Check Engine electrical systems and Emissions and engine control systems chapter.They have many ilustrattions pics of must sensor and electrical system possittion.
is your car is a v6 2.7 it will be on the trans mission by the EGR
Answer Should be located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose On the 2.7 motor the thermostat is located at the engine side of the lower radiator hose. It's a difficult job to change, the alternator a/c compressor and bracket need to be removed, at least unbolted and moved aside, and they… have to be accessed from the passenger side inner fender as well as from under the hood. If you also remove the dipstick be sure to cover the hole so anti freeze can't get into the oilpan. I just unbolted the dipstick and moved it away without pulling it out to avoid that. Upon finishing I also had a problem with air pockets in the system when refilling with anti-freeze, the system must be bled well. (MORE)
The cam shaft sensor is device that uses the "Hall Effect" to tell the ignition control module and/or the ecu ( depending on type of vehicle ) where the cam shaft is during it's rotation so it can fire off the engine coil(s) and open the fuel injectors at the correct time.
Answer I have a 2000 Sebring convertible JXI v6 2.5 L It was stalling out even while driving at high speeds. I read of three possibilities for this problem. 1. Bad MAP sensor. I replaced this since it was the easiest and least expensive thing to do. It had little to no affect. 2. Bad Crank …Position Sensor. This part was $60 and a pain in the butt to get to. I replaced it one month ago, have been driving the car every day, and the problem has not returned. (Hint: It is easier to see this part through the driver side wheel well. You'll need about a 2 foot extension to reach the single bolt holding this part in place and you'll have to remove the tire and plastic wheel well covers.) 3. Unplug the over drive connection from the top of the transmission. Never got to this one since # 2 worked. (MORE)
call around to auto part stores if you have a autozone near you they can check them for free
It tells the computer the location of the camshaft as it spins. This info is used for fuel and ignition timing.
A camshaft can break for several reasons. The shaft could have adefect causing it to break, or something in the engine could bindup and put pressure on the camshaft, causing the damage.
There are a few things that can cause a low idle in a 2002 ChryslerSebring. The fuel pump may not be working right, the fuel injectorscould be old, or the car could be low on oil.
When a Chrysler Sebring is stalling it is possible that poorgasoline has been used. It is also possible that the car needs thespark plugs replaced.
What would cause a 1993 Chrysler Concorde to stall after accelerating a couple of times and then not restart?
if it was cold then ur engine wasnt warmed up that is one reason. or it was to hot out and ur radiator isn't working properly and it overheate. did it start after a while??
Answer: . Depending on the specific submodel (LX with 2.7L V6 or LXi/Limited with 3.5L V6), the average price for a cam position sensor will be around $50-70 if you buy from an auto parts store.
i replaced mine on a 2001 sebring sedan lxi, when you face the front of the car, it is on the left side of your engine, down between the coolant reservoir and the engine side. there is a black plug that covered the bolt on mine. I had to get a 13mm "long shaft" lug to get it unscrewed. if it is a ti…ght area for your hands, you may have to partially remove the coolant reservoir (have another bottle of coolant ready, in case you lose a lot from removing it.

take the valve cover off and it should be located toward the rear of the engine write across from numder 4 intake valve
When mine would go, the engine would all of sudden stop running. Like if you were trying to compression start a standard engine. Only it happen to me when I was doing 80 kph. The it would start again. For some people, once it occurred the engine will never start. Ford did eventually put out a recall… on them but that was a long time ago. The I went to have things repaired had told me that there is no real indication when they will fail. In fact, they had installed a new sensor into a truck and the next day the sensor failed. So until it fails just keep driving it. (MORE)
It goes into the timing chain cover, passenger side of the engine.It is just below the front valve cover, and above the belt.
Both of these codes indicate a leak in the evaporative emissionscontrol system. The most common cause of this code is a bad fuelgas cap.
There is no such thing as a crankshaft sensor.There is no such thing as a crankshaft sensor.
If it is a V6 then it is in the distributor, The back right rear corner of it. V8 is on the right rear top side of the engine block tucked under the intake manifold a little and beside the oil sending unit. You will have to climb up and lean over the top of the engine to see it. Hard to see.
It is located directly below the distributor. It is on the transmission bellhousing on the firewall side. It is hard to see without some stuff moved out of the way.
If you climb up and lean over the engine and look at the right rear corner of the intake you will see the oil sending unit standing stright up with an electrical connector pluged into the top of it. Now just look to the left of it and you will see the camshaft sensor just tucked under the intake ali…ttle bit and it will have an electricl wire pluged into it also. It is hard to see. (MORE)

Need to know year and engine for specific answer. general answer is that there is usually one sensor on the exhaust manifold(s) and one sensor behind the catalytic converter.
My 2002 Chrysler Sebring has 154K miles on it and the front endrattles when it goes over bumps. When I jack the car up and push in and out and side to side on thewheels their is no movement. Nothing seems to be lose when I pullon the front end. I had the same problem on my 2002 Sebring Lxi Sedan. P…roblem wasworn swaybar linkage and bushings. I had the linkage and bushingreplaced and the rattling disappeared. (MORE)
A bad camshaft sensor can cause intermittent starting. The car mayjust shut off while driving. It also may not start or could shudderand backfire.
The sensor is under the car on the back of the engine on the leftside on the 2.4L. On the 2.5L it is on the top rear of the transmission bell housing.
2.5L V6, it is inside the distributor and is not serviced separately. 2.4L it is on the driver side end of the cylinder head.
On the v6, it is inside the distributor. On the four cylinder, itis on the driver side end of the cylinder head.
i just put a new computer in my 2002 sebring and now I am having a problem starting the car
Neither of these two sensors should need alignment. Their mounts ( usually a hole in the block for the crank sensor and one in the valve cover for the cam sensor ) should hold them in place. They are magnetic and sense the movement of the crank and cam because of raised areas of somekind that move w…ith the crank and cam respectively. It is a good idea to make sure the clearance between the raised areas are within tolerances. To do this you'll need a manual on your specific vehicle. The tolerance on the crank sensor is measured by removing it and making sure it is as long as your manual tells you it should be and doesn't have a damged end. The cam sensor tolerance can usually be measured the same way. (MORE)
It can, depending on how it failed. You should be able to run a computer diagnostic test and the vehicle should be able to tell you what's wrong. If the computer is telling you that the sensor is bad, you would be wise to trust it.
The cam shaft sensor consists of a fixed magnet and an integrated circuit that amplifies the signal from it. It uses the Hall Effect to send a square signal to the ecu or ignition module telling it at what speed the camshaft is rotating. In some sensors the signal is actually a ground signal. The ca…mshaft will have a disc mounted on it that has small evenly spaced lowered segments and raised segments on it with the sensor mounted very close to it. As these pass by the magnet in the sensor the magnetic field fluctuates. One raised segment will have larger lowered segments on either side usually timed with TDC of the 1st cylinder. (MORE)
Should be inside the distributor, on a 2.8 or 2.9. anything after 1985 is controlled with EEC 14 electronic ignition system

Yes. A bad cam sensor can cause slight hesitation of the vehicle, ultimately resulting in complete loss of power suddenly while accelerating. If bad, the cam sensor worsens, possible causing the vehicle not to start.
The cam sensor is located behind the camshaft gear. The timing belt and cam gear should be removed to properly gain access to this sensor, but it can be done if you zip-tie the belt to the pulley, and carefully remove the pulley, suspending it with a bungie cord from the hood, so that the belt does …not jump timing on the crank gear. There are two bolts holding the bracket that the cam sensor is mounted to. Remove the bolts, and the sensor can now be removed, and replaced. Be sure the keyway in the camshaft remains inplace while re-installing the cam gear, and lock tite the cam gear nut. We have done these in under an hour. Book time is 3.5 hours. Good luck! (MORE)
Engine, transmission, and abs are under the hood. Body, HVAC,airbag are in the vehicle. Engine, transmission, and abs are under the hood. Body, HVAC,airbag are in the vehicle.
On the 2.7V6: Open the hood. The sensor is located on the left hand side of the engine block opposite the coolant reservoir. Wait until the engine is cold and pull the upper radiator hose and air-con pipes to the left and you will see the sensor and plug, to the right of the hose about 10-12 inche…s down. You do not need to disassemble anything to remove and replace the sensor, but you will need a 13mm ring spanner and some patience. If you can get someone to hold the hoses to one side, it'll make removing the sensor easier but it can be done alone. If I can do it, anyone can. The sensor is held in place by a threaded post with a nut welded to it. At first sight, I expected the nut to come off, but it doesn't. Remove the plastic cap on the end of the post (it holds part of the wiring loom in place) and the unbolt the post and remove it. The sensor will pull free but might need some wiggling to get it loose. If you're lucky, You should be able to simply unplug the sensor and fit the new one. Mine was seized, so I had to cut off the receiving plug that holds the sensor (called a pigtail - I have no idea why) and replace that as well. The whole job took about 20 mins, including re-connecting the severed wires. The new pigtail had corresponding color coded wires, so matching them to the loom was easy. Hope that was helpful and good luck! (MORE)
Common causes are a loose gas cap or a cracked hose between thefuel tank and engine. Common causes are a loose gas cap or a cracked hose between thefuel tank and engine.

Would a crank shaft sensor and cam sensor cause your 2002 dodge grand caravan to not turn over and or start at all?
A bad cam or crank sensor can cause a no start, but the engine willstill crank or turn over.
