Best Answer

the cranshaft and camshaft position sensor.

the engine speed and cranshaft position information is supplied frome a sensor which is usually situated at the front or rear of the cranshaft.note that distributor-located engine speed sensor are generally being replaced with cranshaft-located sensors,as worn disributor drives and associated components can effect the accuracy of the engine speed signal.

A camshaft position sensor,or cylinder identification sensor is used to determin the engine cycle position the information is used to provide individual cylinder ignition and injection cotrol.Many engine management systems use an inductive type of sensor that is located near the camshaft;when the camshaft rotates a single signal is passed to the ECU to indicate a reference point in the engine cycle.Some system manufactures may use a Hall effect-type sensor.
