light should go off . if that was the problem, and is now fixed, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes,then reconnect battery this will reset the computer and remove the signal from the warning light if that doesnt work, there is a different problem apart from crankshaft sensor
Do you have a picture of location of crankshaft position sensor for 1992 Chevy Cavalier 2.2L ohv engine?
I replaced my 1995 S10 2.2 engine with a 2.2 cavalier engine and it worked fine.
I had the same problem with a 1992 Park Avenue with the 3800 engine. I first replaced the electronic ignition but that did not fix the problem. I then replaced the crankshaft heat sensor. That fixed my problem.
its located at the rear of the engine (center) attached to the block
Crankshaft position sensor circuit malfunction.
Back side of the engine near where the transmission mounts to the engine. You have to jack up the car and crawl under it to see it. There are two sensors there.....the crankshaft sensor and the knock sensor.
The crankshaft sensor is mounted to either the front side or the back side of the engine block depending on engine type
Its on the firewall side of engine between transmission and engine just below the ignition coil packs one of the wire connectors from ignition module go to crankshaft position sensor
Timing chains are designed to last the life of the engine and are replaced when the engine is rebuilt.
Faulty sensor get it replaced if not check to make sure wire isn't shorting out
the problem seems to be crankshaft or camshaft position sensor.
Inside the lower part of the engine. The pistons are connected to the crankshaft by way of rods. Here is a rough diagram.
AnswerThe crankshaft position sensor should be located on a small metal bracket very close to the harmonic balancer which is attached to the end of the crankshaft. If you are having trouble locating the harmonic balancer, it is the lowest pulley on the passenger side of the engine, in the centerline of the engine.
The check engine light cannot be retrieved on a 1990 Cavalier unless a problem develops with the engine. The engine can be checked for errors, though, by using a tester that is plugged into the vehicle's computer.
The crankshaft position sensor is located on the rear of the engine. It is mounted just above the oil pan on the engine block.
That year did not have a CRANKSHAFT SENSOR.Need more info. to help you with your problem. Engine size and what your problem is. You will need to ask your question again with that infomation. THANK YOU.
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
A problem with the emission system. Need to have trouble codes checked.
The timing chain should last the life of the engine and not maintenance is normally required. It is replaced when the engine is rebuilt.
Usually an indication of a problem within the emission control system Have the vehicle scanned to determine the problem
Hey Jeff== It depends on which engine you have but I imagine it is on the module and senses notches on the crankshaft. GoodluckJoe
Just behind the vibration dampner/main pulley on the front (passenger side) of the engine towards the top.
The crankshaft is the largest part in the bottom of the engine.The crankshaft is the largest part in the bottom of the engine.
Well yes and no. Both have a 2.2 four cylinder if I'm not mistaken, but I don't think the earlier Cavalier's have the EcoTec motor. And you should be able to get the engine from the '03 into the '97 with no problem.
