How is a crankshaft position sensor used to monitor misfiring?
by sensing engine RPM it can teel if engine is not running smooth by sensing the rotation of the rpm's of the engine.
poo17 is the powertrain control module uses the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor information is to monitor the correlation between the crankshaft and the camshaft position sensors if the deviation exceeds a calibrated amount dtc poo17 will set see the dealer to have this updated
What is the difference between a crankshaft position sensor and a camshaft position sensor in a 1995 camry?
The Crankshaft sensor and the Cam sensor monitor the position and or the speed of rotation of the crankshaft. Together they send signals to the ECM. The ECM uses that information along with info from other sensors to send spark and fuel to the cylinders at the correct time. Some engines only have only a crank sensor to perform that job. Other engines that have both crank and cam sensors that split the duties.
CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR The crankshaft sensor is located on the passengers side of the transmission housing, above the differential housing Crankshaft Position Sensor The bottom of the sensor sits above the drive plate REMOVAL Disconnect electrical connector from crankshaft position sensor. Remove sensor mounting screw. Remove sensor. INSTALLATION Install sensor and push sensor down until contact is made with the transmission case. While holding the sensor in this position, install and tighten the retaining bolt…
The location of the crankshaft position sensor depends on which engine the car has. If it is the 2.5L 4 cylinder engine the crankshaft position sensor is behind the ignition module. If it is the 2.8L V6 engine the crankshaft position sensor is on the side of the engine nearest the firewall and just above the pan rail in about the center of the block.
