ohm test it.
A bad crankshaft position sensor will cause your Kia Sorrento to run rough. The bad crankshaft position sensor can also cause your Kia to not start.
I have a 2006 Cadillac CTS. What are the symptons of the crankshaft sensor going out?
When a position sensor is going bad the engine could run rough, or cut off for no apparent reason. Or, the engine may not start at all.
yes if its faulty its like going into safe mode your engine will not fire drive safe
Crankshaft Position Sensor is by the starter and the general position. IF your going to change it, you'll have to do a re-learn with a scanner, if not your check engine light wil come on and might run mighty ruff.
It senses whether your crankshaft has packed up, and if so, warns you of such. Driving without a crankshaft is dangerous! It can lead to not going anywhere fast, and is often a sign of owning a Chrysler product. The Crankshaft Sensor communicates to the computer what position the motor is in so it can fire the appropriate spark plugs and fuel injectors in a continuous cycle, or firing order.
When a crankshaft sensor is bad the engine will not run. The sensor is not usually intermittent, it is either good or bad.
The camshaft sensor is the same as the crankshaft sensor it is local on the passenger side of the valve cover . And going down to your crankshaft inside the timing belt cover
It's located next to the crankshaft pulley (the timing belt is going around it). You will not miss it. There is only one sensor there.
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.
Before you replace timing gear or belt check codes with code reader, may be a crankshaft position sensor. Sensor is very easy repair and L300 isn't going anywhere if that sensor is malfunctioning.
mounted right next to the thermostat , has one wire going to it.
