Does the Grand Prix 3.1L have a crankshaft sensor instead of an camshaft sensor and does it require any special tools to replace it?

the crank sensor is located in the lower right side of the block(side facing the firewall) just above the oil pan next to the transmission, no special tools needed

if im not mistaken, its on the backside towards the front of the engine on the bottom. Front of the engine as on the far right side. Just look for and follow the wires that are twisted together. You will have to get underneath...

Definetly not the same animal, some vehicles have one or the other, some have both. Your local parts store can look up and usually show you the different sensors your vehicle may require.

All Villagers have a timing belt. Yours should be changed every 65,000 miles. While you're at it, replace the water pump, belt tensioner, and camshaft seals as these require the same amount of time and work to replace separately.

An oil pump on a 1994 Honda Civic is found in the bottom end of the engine. To replace the oil pump the engine will require a rebuild as the crankshaft will have to come off as well.

The crank sensor is located behind the passenger side head, in through the bell housing. It is held in place by two bolts that require a 5/16 Allen socket to remove.

make sure the leak is not coming from above the starter, like from the valve cover gasket, if it isn`t then it probably is the rear crankshaft seal which would require the removal of the tranny to replace.

A crankshaft is the part of an automobile that converts the force of the engine's pistons going up and down into the force that makes the wheels spin forward so that you can move. All cars require a crankshaft, and it is possible for them to need repairing.

You can use corn flour to replace wheat flour in cookies, but the result will be a finer textured and more brittle cookie. For recipes that require the elasticity of the gluten in wheat, a good result will require the addition of gluten, or an acceptable equivalent.

The Camshaft position sensors (One at the front bank and one at the rear bank, the rear one will require to remove the the fuel injection V-bank cover to access)are located on the cylinder head. The front bank CPS is at the RHS near the Transmission fluid dipstick. Once identified the locations, replacement is easy. Disconnect the harness cover and remove the CPS mounting screws with a ring wrench.

Hi, Not an easy question to answer or an easy job to do. You will require a service manual to do this. It will require removing the transmission,clutch and oil pan if it is a rear seal. Good luck

When it is required to increase the gain of a differential amplifier for that we have to increase the collector resistance to a large value which is difficult and also require larger chip area ,so instead we replace it by a constant current source that is a current mirror which is called an active load.
