When the crankshaft gets worn out, the engine will make lots of very loud knocking and or squealing noises. The engine may also lock up tight and not turn over. Damaged crankshafts are usually the result of not changing the oil often enough or not having enough oil in the engine. Crankshafts just dont wear out on their own.
If the timing belt was broken, obviously the engine would not run. If you crank the engine and the distributor does not turn, that would be a good sign.
can you tell me where the knock sensor is located on a 3.3l mercury villager
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN THE ENGINE OVER IF YOU SUSPECT A BROKEN TIMING BELT !!!!!! If you have, you already have more problems than a broken timing belt. Remove the upper timing belt cover and physically look at the timing belt.
Anyplace that sells batteries can tell you the correct size you need.
One way would be to take the VIN number to a Ford dealer, they would be able to tell.
A bad ignition switch, on your 1995, Mercury Voyager, will cause the vehicle not to start. In most cases a bad ignition will cause the engine not to turn over.
how to tell if my crankshaft sensor is not working
Look inside the driver side door jam is should tell you tire sizes. If you cannot find it, refer to your owners manual.
IF the computer was really defective, either the car would not run, or there would be a check engine light due to a fault code.
Go to your local parts house or Walmart, Pepboys, ect. and get trans fluid for a Ford automobile. The bottle will tell you it is for Ford autos.
If it's leaking and squealing, it's bad. If it's not, it's probably OK. It should be changed when you change the timing belt.
too much to tell u on-line-there are enough complexities to purchase the service manual- they're about $15 at AutoZone
I really need to know how to tell if i have a loose crankshaft or crankshaft position sensor. Or could it be the timing belt . We just put in a new water pump but the timing belt was on TDC when we were done. PLEASE HELP !!!! Its running pretty crappy...
more likely crankshaft sensor. Near the end of the crankshaft and its there to tell the ECU what the crankshaft position is so that the plugs will fire and all of the stuff.

Normally it is not the swaybar itself but the bushings. You have a set of two on each side of the car, an upper and lower. Fairly easy to do. About 8 bucks for each set.
Its trying to give you a trouble code to tell you whats wrong with the car. Take it to someone who has a code reader, such as an autoparts store or oilcan Henry's if you have one near you.
The only function of the crankshaft position sensor is to tell you you have a miss fire ( a spark plug did not fire))

A computer diagnostic test will generally tell you if you have a faulty crankshaft position sensor.
The only way to tell for certain if your big toe is broken is to have it x-rayed. It is still possible to move a broken toe.
If they have a burning sharp pressure pain then its likely their broken. Or if its bad you can just look at them and tell. If they're broken they'll hurt to the toutch.
It does not have one. Crankshaft position sensors are used in distributorless ignition systems to tell the ignition control module where the crankshaft is in its rotation. The 1982 thru 1986 2.8L engines had distributors so they had no need of a crankshaft position sensor.
it should be on the instructions or when you get the car they should tell you
