Does replacing the crank sensor in a 1991 Chevy Corsica stop it from stalling while driving?

IF... the crank sensor was the problem then it might. However, it is unlikely. I agree, although they are known to crack, It usually results in a no start condition from what I have seen.

Check the oxygen sensor. My 1995 Grand Cherokee stopped stalling while driving after it was replaced.

Camshaft position sensor. There is a recall for them i believe. It will cause cutting out and stalling. It happened to ours too. Camshaft position sensor. There is a recall for them i believe. It will cause cutting out and stalling. It happened to ours too.

AnswerI would replace the control module in the distributor; they are heat sensitive.If that doesn't fix it, try replacing the oxygen sensor.

Not starting when hot, or stalling ang bucking after driving or idleing in hot weather. pour cold water on sensor after no start condition to test it ( on back of head )

Many things can cause a car to not start after shutting down. But here is my story...I had a car where the crankshaft positioning sensor was covered in oil from a leaking valve cover gasket.This caused the sensor to fail and only work for about 30 minutes after starting. This part need replacing and the valve covers taken care of. Very hard to diagnose but I was persistent and got it. Replacing the sensor took a 10mm box end wrench, one new sensor and about 10 minutes. Took nearly a week to figure it out.

The Chevrolet Corsica 3.1 liter engine crank sensor can be found on the back of the engine. You will need to remove the rear engine cover in order to access the crank sensor.

I have been having the same problem, I have a 99 bonny se and it stalls while driving,I actually had to replace my starter . I bought a sensor diagnostic obo2, the sensor came up mass air flow,whicch there is a actual cleaner for it . DO NOT USE ANYTHING BUT IT. any parts dealer will tell you how to use. I used it and it helped i have more on the pedal but it still stalls in the same way. I was told about a vacumme canister or replacing my egr sensor, hope this helped a little... auto101...

Does it have a miss? check plugs and wires. Also a possibility of a bad throttle position sensor.

Throttle Position Sensor. I changed mine and my truck doesn't stall anymore, and it does better on gas. That is if you know how to drive standard and are not just stalling it yourself.

yes definitely my 96 Chevy was stalling every time i stopped at a light or stop sign and my brother changed my crank shaft sensor and it doesn't do it anymore.

The Corsica wasn't made in 1898. I think you have to slap it with the reins to make it go on that model.

If it's stalling while driving, it could be the problem with either the crankshaft positioning sensor or mass air flow sensor. Check to see if you have a check engine light on. If so, you need to retrieve the code from auto parts store. Only then you will be able to find out the actual problem.

The MAP sensor - another frequent cause of stalling or non-starting. This measures the air pressure in the manifold. You can test it - if your car won't start, just unplug the electrical connection from the MAP sensor. If it starts, replace the sensor. MAP sensor details. (It may act as though the fuel pump is not working properly - starting, then quickly dying).

Disconnect the battery for 1 hour.

Speed sensor might need replacing. Does the check engine light come on when driving?

It could be your air intake temperature sensor or maybe your mass air flow sensor

Your check engine light will be on and you will feel bucking or jerking while you are accelerating. You will also have an idle surging, sudden stalling of the engine, and a sudden surge in speed while driving on the highway.

I had a problem with stalling with a 2000 Impala, and it was the oxygen sensor.

In the exhaust system before the catalytic converter.

The speed sensor is at the top rear of the transmission housing.
