This could be your problem and how to check it out.

I have Had the same problem as you and i have a S-10 1997 truck. Unfortuanly it was not a sensor. The connecting bearing spun in the engine, until it was small metal chips, then they get suck into the oil pumps screen, and you loose oil pressure or have pressure when motor starts for a few second's, the engine makes a knocking sound and does not run smooth at all.

How to check if it is a spun bearing very simple dran the oil out of your truck Check the Bolt that you took out of the oil pan and see if there are small metal flaks stuck to it, also look up in the oil pan bolt hole to see if you see large metal pieces there. I have a repair manual and a owners manual for the S-10 and it does not list a crank case sensor.

What can cause this problem is a long time between oil changes, that is what happend to me.

The crankshaft sensor is located at the bottom of the engine timing chain cover. Use the owner's manual in case you need help.

On a 2004 Kia Optima, the crankshaft sensor is located on the front of the transmission case. The sensor is adjacent to the flywheel.

6.0 powerstroke had crank case sensor replaced by a dealership. 24hrs of runtime and engine refuses to start again. what happened to owning a reliable diesel??

There is no oil in the crank case,,you use mixed gas and oil that's what lubes the crank bearings and piston rings.

It is possible, but not guaranteed in every case. The crank position sensor is a little bit redundant, since there are other sensors available to the engine's control module, which could give it essentially the same data required for the engine to start and run. Regardless, if the crank position sensor is found to be defective, it should be replaced.

YES, All engine must have Positive crank case ventilation. That is what PCV stands for.

Per Clymer manual... .8 Liter .85 U.S. Quart

on top of the crank case towards the outside , it vents into the carb by vacume.

well on a 93 exploirer the speed sensor plugs intot he back of the transfer case. dunno if that helps


In my case, it was a crank shaft sensor that went out, causing the cam sensor to go out, which may have led to the killing of the fuel pump. $200 later, hopefully it fixes it.

To the best of my knowledge a 98 2.2L 4-cyl does not have a cam sensor. It does however have a crank sensor and if you look at the lower crank pulley just to the back of the pulley and go around the pulley you should find the sensor mounted on a bracket. You should see what appears as a sprocket with widely spaced teeth on the engine side of the pulley. This "sprocket" so to speak is what the crank sensor "reads". I believe that the crank sensor is the only sensor used for engine timing. The 2.2 is an overhead cam engine design and a crank sensor wasn't used. I know this is the case for the 96 models, both 2.2L and 4.3L v-6 and the design has carried through current models to the best of my knowledge. my 1996 hombre that's a s-10 clone with a 2.2 Chevy motor has a cam sensor i just had to replace it. the easy was is to take it to advanced or auto zone let them scan the computer for the fault code to tell you witch sensor it is. its location is on the bottom of the engine block passenger side. some say its easier if you take the tire off to access it.

located in the transmission case where the speedo cable connects

Yes. I had this problem on a 2000 Grand Cherokee. The problem came without any warning that I could notice. I parked it at night and the next morning it would crank and crank but not start. - I would imagine that his problem could happen gradually if the sensor had a broken lead wire or was gradually failing. In my case it was immediate and complete failure.

The speed sensor on a 2000 Olds Bravada Smartrak is on the top of the automatic transfer case. To change it you need to disconnect the two wires and replace with a new sensor.

Remove the throttlebody to get access to the 2 torq, screws.

Sounds like the crank position sensor is faulty. Get a volt meter, set it to AC.Find the crank sensor on the block of the engine. Disconnect sensor and probe the two wires with the meter. Crank engine and you should have 0.2 - 2.0 volts ac. If this is not the case replace. If ok, carry out same check with camshaft sensor on top of engine. Hope this helps.

as the pistons go up and down, and the temperature changes the air in a crank case has to go somewhere. that is what the vent is for

5 quarts tells you in owners manual also HaHaHaHa! There is a reason they call it a 5.2 liter! This is the engines displacement... It takes 5.2 liters to fill the crank case....

Place a drip pan beneath the crank case of your 1999 Road King motorcycle. Remove the crank case plug. Allow the oil to completely drained out. Replace the plug to its original position. Fill the motor with oil.

Do you mean the Crank Position Sensor (also called a CKP)? On 3.5L it is on the side of the block between the firewall and engine (backside if you are looking from the front of the engine). You can get to it from under the car by first loosening the starter from the transmission and dropping it out of the way. The sensor is held on by a single small bolt that you can get at with a flat wrench. I don't know if the 3.8L is similar. The 3.8 wasn't used after the 1999 model year.

P0320 (M) No Crank Reference Signal at PCM No reference signal (crankshaft position sensor) detected during engine cranking.P0320 (M) No RPM Signal to PCM (Crankshaft Position Sensor Signal to JTEC) A CKP signal has not been detected at the PCM.The Sensor has failed. Replace the *Cam Position* Sensor in the Distributor.***added by DrStoooopid You're half right. The sensor has failed, but there's two of them.1. Cam position sensor, which is on the front of the engine. (location varies depending on engine)and is most definitely not in the distributor. There IS no distributor in those engines, they're electronically controlled. The cam position sensor sits .30" from one of the camshafts.2. CRANK position sesnor which that code is referencing. The CRANK position sensor is the one that failed. (They usually fail in pairs though). The crank position sensor is harder to get to. It's on the back of the engine, near the transfer case.
