Where is the Crank shaft sensor 1989 cutlass ciera?

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.

How do you remove a crank sensor on a 1989 Buick LeSabor?

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.

How do you disable the computer to set the timing on a 1997 dodge ram 5.9?

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.

Where is the crank sensor positioned on a 1990 cutlass cruiser wagon with a 3.3 engine?

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.

I need to replace the Cam Position Sensor on my 1989 Oldsmobile regency 98 do you have pictures to do this?

you need to remove the front right tire and the plastic shrowd in the wheel well you just pop out the plastic clips but don't break all of them or you can't put it back it back. The sensor is behind the harmonic balancer whichbis conected to the crank shaft or cam. You need to mark lines around the sensor there is not much room to work with since it is behind the HB. Remove the sensor and put the new one in and match it up with the marks you made so it matches the one you removed you want to match it as goodvas possible and that's it if you need pictures of what the harmonic balncer and cam position sensor looks like go to autozone.com and put the make and model in then look up the parts then go and look for the same on the car and do what I said people will tell you you need a tool to align the sensor correctly but if you mark it off and math it up really close you will be fine I have never heard of any problems when you do it with out the tool so Good Luck!!!!!!

How do you set the timing on a 95 dodge Dakota 318 engine?

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.

96 ram that turns over but will not fire what should you be checking to fix this i just put in new tranny and broke my crank sensor but replaced it with a new one.but still no spark?

Check fuel pressure, and check for codes. You will need a scan tool to read the cam and crank sensors while cranking, to see if they are working.
