Generally when the crank sensor goes out the engine will not start. The sensor on almost all vehicles is located in the front on the engine near the belts.In most cases it is held in place by a bolt.Usually they can be hard to get to.
One symptom of a bad crank shaft sensor is the car having trouble starting. The car stalling and backfiring are other symptoms of a bad crank shaft sensor.
The crank sensor is an important part of the engine wiring. Without it the engine does not know when to fire. There is no way to by pass it.
Just cost me £115, don't know if that's reasonable or a rip off
No, the computer needs that sensor to know crank timing.
There many sensors in that vehicle, crank sensor, cam sensor, engine temp sensor, oil pressure sensor, oxygen sensors, fuel level sensor, fuel tank evap pressure sensor, mass air flow sensor, manifold absolute pressure senser and the list goes on. Need to know which sensor you are looking for.
Need to know what size engine it has.
Why the crank sensor? do you know for sure that's what is wrong? What are your symptoms? I cant recall exactly the configuratiion on the escort. Are you mechanical at all? what year is it? I can help if I have more info! hit me back on this.
You will have a no spark situation. Testing it with a volt meter is easy. Twist the crank shaft slowly by hand and watch volt meter. If there is voltage and no voltage the sensor is good. No readings sensor is bad
if your crank position sensor is bad you car or truck will not start because you will not have spark
crank position sensor
Need to know what year it is, engine size
6.0 powerstroke had crank case sensor replaced by a dealership. 24hrs of runtime and engine refuses to start again. what happened to owning a reliable diesel??
You must know the engine, such as 4.2liter
The car won't start. Need a scan tool.
A faulty crank sensor would cause none of the plugs and injectors to work. Without an input signal from the crank sensor the brain will not know how to time it's signals. Most are designed not to attempt to function without the sensors signal.
when the hall effect and ignition module are good, the injectors and coil no work maybe this sensor is bad
Jack up the car or put it on a lift first. The you can see it on the backside of hte oil pan. If you are asking because you have a bad crank sensor, you should know that usually you have to take off the oil pan to change it. I was able to get mine out wihtout taking off the oil pan. If replaing it the crank sensor will be about $100 and maybe $20 for an oil pan gasket
They way you can tell if the Crank sensor is bad, is when you run the car for a while and then turn it off, and when you go to start it back up, it won't start,then it's your crank sensor, it's probably cracked, so when it heats up it expands and doesn't make contact. but if you let the car cool off, it will go back together and start up, A faulty crank sensor should trigger a check engine light.
Need to know the year, make and engine size of your vehicle.
i need to know. my1996 1600 geotracker engine carries a crank sensor, i am replacing it with a vitara engine but it does not carry a crank sensor. the vitara distributor only has two wires. how do i configure, cause the geo distributor has 7 wires
It is important to know the symptoms of a bad car part. The symptoms of a bad crank sensor is acceleration problems, engine sputtering and engine stalling.
I would like to know where the cam sensor is on a 1999 pathfinder and is there one or they calling it a crank shaft sensor The cam shaft position sensor is located in the distributor.
FROM WHAT I HAD READ, AFTER YOU HAVE TRYED EVERYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF THEN IT IS THE SENSOR..I WOULD SAY IF IT TURNING OVER AND NOT CRANKING AND YOU HAVE FIRE, IT WOULD BE THE SENSOR.....HOPE THIS HELPED
