There is only one crank sensor fitted, you may also have a cam sensor. the crank sensor is located either around the bellhousing or around the front crank pulley. It either has 2 or 3 wires. It picks the signal off the revolving crank so look for a sensor in the block near flywheel.

fuel pump or crank sensor

No, The pcm has to see a signal from the sensor

On a 4.0 V-6 the crank position sensor is in a fixed location and cannot come in contact with the crank if it is installed correctly.

It's on the back of the engine....and hell to get to. Better off taking to a garage. I just broke mine off. Now I have to drop the oil pan and drive it back out.

there is a bolt off to the right off the sensor take it out and it should just pull right out.

IS this a 5.2, if so the crank sensor is on the passenger side of the engine, in the far rear, it picks up off the flywheel, the cam sensor is located inside the distributor (it is the pick up coil).

Bore the block .040" oversize and put in a 4" stroke crank.

They way you can tell if the Crank sensor is bad, is when you run the car for a while and then turn it off, and when you go to start it back up, it won't start,then it's your crank sensor, it's probably cracked, so when it heats up it expands and doesn't make contact. but if you let the car cool off, it will go back together and start up, A faulty crank sensor should trigger a check engine light.

as the crank spins around there is a magnet on it, and the sensor pics up a signal off of it to detect that the crank is in motion. If the sensor fails it will not send a signal to the computor, and that will cause the ignition system to shut down, so you will not have spark.

there are twoCrank sensors on the ford probe GT. One is located in the distributor that control spark and by taking the passenger front wheel off and to the right of the crank shaft pully you will see a one bolt device with three wires, that is your lower crank sensor.

User Avatar

It is located right behind the main crankshaft on the passenger side. You might have to take off the crank but might also be able to get your tools in there it depends on how they positioned the sensor.

i have a 2001 Chevy tracker and i just replaced the crank sensor. i have been having a problem with mine not cranking. i would drive it and cut it off. it would not crank up until after it sat for a while. the crank sensor has not fixed the problem though. you have to take the tranmission out and take the flywheel off. the sensor is behind it. hopes this helps. i got a sensor at napa for about $100. advance auto parts wanted about $174 for it i think

The easiest way I have found is to push the broken sensor all the way in the block and turn the crankshaft. This action will break the sensor off in pieces as they will fall into the oil pan. This may sound like a dumb idea to some , but it has worked for years. I find that with most of those sensors have a plastic housing, so just put a bit of heat on them and they will shrink and you can just pull it right out easy.

will a bad crank shaft sensor make a 2005 chevy equinox not start

User Avatar

Located behind the starter. Have to take starter off to get to it.

The B2600i does not use a crank angle sensor, it uses a hall effect sensor located inside the distributor to time the engine based off of the camshaft. See the attached link for additional information. K6 Mazdatruckin.com

The sensor is located in between the crank pulley and front cover, just to the lft of the crankshaft. In order to change the sensor, you must, first, remove the crank pulley. With the damper off, unplug the sensor, and pull off the plastic cover. The sensor is mounted with 2 bolts, just to the left of the crankshaft. You'll need a deep 15mm socket.

When a crank sensor goes bad one of several things could happen. The engine may run rough, or cut off for seemingly no reason. Or, the engine may not start at all.

User Avatar

My 90 lesabre did the same thing. When it cut off after driving I sprayed water on the crank sensor and it started right back up. A buick mechanic told me to do this and this is how I found out the crank sensor was bad!

User Avatar

Yes, but you have to block off the oil squirters. Golden eagle sells a kit for like $20.

User Avatar

just above the starter on the front of the motor. will have to take the starter off to get to it.

The ignition timing will be off causing misfiring among other problems.
