It senses whether your crankshaft has packed up, and if so, warns you of such. Driving without a crankshaft is dangerous!

Show you where you can find the crankshaft position sensor on a 1996 subaru legacy?

Well, I'm not going to "show" you, but I'll tell you where it is. Standing at the front of the car looking at the engine you would locate your crankshaft pully (under your alternator). The sensor is located to the right of center of that crankshaft pully bolted to the engine block. Needless to say if you have to change the sensor you are going to have to remove a bunch of stuff, but before you do that you can access the wires coming out of that area and test their continunity before proceeding further.

How do you change the crank position sensor for a 1999 Dodge Durango?

The crankshaft position sensor is on the right side of the engine just to the rear of the right hand exhaust manifold, the sensor is attached to the block with two bolts, part of the sensor overhangs the transmission bell housing. Look at the bell housing and start going up, you will see the sensor almost inline with the right exhaust manifold. It has a gromment that overhangs the transmissions bell housing. Use a flashlight from below and you will see it.

Your 89 celebrity dies going down the road but when you check it has spark and fuel pressure after cools it starts up?

This could be caused by either a failing crankshaft position sensor and /or ignition module. It works alright when it is cold, but when it gets hot it quits. If that is the case either will ultimately fail altogether. I actually had that happen on a 1987 Celebrity that I own. First the crankshaft position sensor failed, I had no sooner replaced it when the ignition module died. Both failed in the same day.

Can a crank shaft sensor drain the battery when vehicle is off?

I don't know for sure, but I did work on my jeep and was going to change the crankshaft position sensor so I unplugged it from the harness. Battery maintained charge the whole time the sensor was unplugged (a week). Could not get the sensor bolt off so we just plugged it back in and once again battery was dead by the next morning.
