Yes. You use feeler gauge to set gap between sensor and crankshaft pully( .020 to .053)

The car won't start. Need a scan tool.

no, there is one bolt that holds it in place, so no need , just a 10mm socket

Behind the harmonic balancer. You will need to remove the right front tire, remove the access panel to the engine (through the wheel well), remove engine belt, remove harmonic balancer & pulley with a puller. Remove & replace crank sensor, align sensor with an alignment tool, replace balancer with an installer tool.. BE VERY careful with the balancer, the backside of it has a hall effect style blades. bending these blades will junk the balancer.

remove the front passenger wheel, remove the crank pulley, remove the crank sensor. you may need a GM special tool to remove certain bolts

Ford has a SPECIAL TOOL KIT with brackets that mount to the cylinder head. NO OTHER WAY

The distributor is not "timed". It is synched to the crank sensor with a scan tool.

Remove passenger side front wheel. Place a jack stand under the vehicle... don't rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while you are working on it. Remove the side splash panel shield on the passenger side so you can get to the chank shaft balancer. Remove serpentine belt. If you have a front motor mount, you will have to remove the mount. To do this, support the engine with a jack and a large block of wood under the oil pan. Lift just enough to take the weight off of the motor mount. On the driver's side, remove the shield over the crank gear. You will need to insert a long screw driver holding the gear (and crank) in place while an assistant removes the center bolt from the crank balancer. Remove crank/balancer pulley. This is a large TIGHT nut in the center of the pulley. You'll need a breaker bar and an assistant while you hold the crank in place. You can now access the sensor which is bolted to the timing cover. To replace you need a special tool to align the sensor. If you do NOT have the tool, you must be VERY careful not to break the sensor when you reinstall the crankcase balancer. Center and align the censor making sure it does NOT touch the balancer.

About $60.00 for the switch. Kind of hard to get to under the car. Need a tool to align center nut in neutral though. For 94 Cougar tool number is 307-351 (T97L-70010-A).

Here is a pic of it...You have to have it to replace the crank sensor on the newer Foeds...Jim

You need to get a window crank removal tool from an auto parts store. Simple pressed steel tool for less and $5.

You need a special tool called a crank puller. Then, depending on your bottom bracket you might need another special splined tool to get the BB spindle and bearings out.

I believe a 3.3L is just like a 3.8L or 3.0L. The sensor should be located behind the damper/balancer (the pulley that makes the belt spin.) This sensor is located on an adjustable bracket. After installing a sensor, be very careful when installing the crank pulley/harmonic balancer/damper that it does not make contact with the sensor. To remove the crank pully, you can use a special tool made by Kent-Moore. This tool works very well. If you don't want to buy this tool and promise not to sue me, you can loosen but not remove the pulley bolt, then use a three-bolt-puller. I believe you will need three longish 8mmx125thread bolts and washers. Do not use a jaw-type puller. Do not use any puller other than one made specifically for this purpose with the crank pulley bolt completely removed. The crank pulley bolt must be screwed in at least three full turns unless using the special tool.

you need to hook up a good scan tool that will have the cam/crank feature.

It doesn't work that way. You set initial distributor timing by lining up the crank at tdc and the rotor with the mark on the pickup plate. The next step requires a scan tool and can not be done with a timing light. Using the scan tool, the distributor is set to be in sync with the crank position sensor.It doesn't work that way.

You need to remove the window hand crank with a window hand crank removal tool.

There is a c clip holding the window crank on. The tool slides behind the crank and opens the clip.

That depends upon what sort of crank set you have. cottered crank (older bicycle) press fit - newer / current bicycles out board bearing (newer current bikes - expensive bicycles generally one piece crank sets - cheapo bicycles mostly You need different tools for each of these types The best way to figure it out would be to go to the Park tool web site, then find out first what kind of crank it is, what tool(s) you need, then how to use the tool(s)

Honda Crank Pulley Tool 50mm. The part number is 646796 at DenLorsTools.com. There is a video that shows it in use.

Initial timing is set by aligning the crank with the 0 mark and aligning the distributor rotor with the line on the pick up plate. The distributor is then synced with a scan tool. It is set to exactly 0 degrees to match the crank sensor. This can no be done with a timing light.Initial timing is set by aligning the crank with the 0 mark and aligning the distributor rotor with the line on the pick up plate.

Removing the pedal arm AKA the crank arm, you usually need a tool called a crank arm puller. Take some Close up pics of the crank, go to a shop and ask them to sell you the right tool - there are several to choose from.

It is not "timed", the distributor is zeroed or synced to the crank with a scan tool.It is not "timed", the distributor is zeroed or synced to the crank with a scan tool.

The distributor is set to 0 deg. Align the rotor to the line in the pickup plate in the distributor when the crank is at tdc. The dist. is then fine tuned with a scan tool.

Depends on vehicle and type, some adjust like a distributor, some just read the magnets on crank wheel and some take a special tool to get in precise position. Need more info to answer.
