Behind the power steering pump. 8 mm bolt. Sensor is about 6" long.
Crankshaft position sensor on the transmission bell housing. usually the problem
behind the power steering pump on the passenger side of the engine
WOW WAY TO NAME ALL OF THEM LOL it is the crankshaft position sensor and either knocks sensor or camshaft position sensor First off if you a have a 3.1 it is the KNock Sensor. Crankshaft sensor and cam sensor is on the belt side of the motor. Crank is on bottom behind the big pully and cam is on top(half way up) usually under power steering pump
The engine shuts down, you lose the power assist steering, power assist brakes and you coast to a stop.
the sensor is underneath the power steering pump and the alternator, awkward to get to, you may have to remove top fixing for the dipstick housing.
Check the camshaft sensor. If the sensor is bad or not getting power, then the engine will not fire and the injector will not get a signal.
If this is a Power Stroke engine, the most likely cause is a faulty crankshaft position sensor.
The first thing I would check is your crankshaft position sensor
Yes, the power train management computer needs input from this sensor to time the spark to each cylinder. With a bad sensor there will be no ignition and the engine won't start.
It could be a few thing's. 1.bad coil 2.bad fuse 3.short in the wire 4.bad crankshaft sensor... I had the same problem and it turned out to be a bad crankshaft sensor it is about 60 bucks for the part and 5 minutes to fix it.
It is in the block on the passengers side behind the A/C compressor. hard to see and get to but it can be done with out removing the compressor.
Engine overheats, no power, or just won't start. Transmission won't shift right.
try to replace the camshaft position sensor located under the power steering resivoir .. on 4.6 liter lincoln ...
the first thing i would do,give it a tune up, check air filter (make sure it is not clogged ),check timing , chec k timing belt, check fuel filter (clogged?) then check cam position sensor, crankshaft position sensor,chek base line for timing.
the crankshaft sensor for 1995 ford thunderbird is located behind the powerstreeing reservior. you have to unscrew the power streeing reservior and gently move it to the side with out causing damage to the hoses. below the vavle cover you should see it. it should take about 20 to 30 mins. to replace. take your time! i hope that these information is helpful.
Turn the power off and check for voltage before you touch it
rotation of the crankshaft
The crankshaft has counterweights which are placed in such a way as to provide momentum when the the power stroke of any piston is absent. This drives the crankshaft to spin until the next power stroke of a piston drives it further.
You may need to replace the crankshaft position sensor. Not sure about the '94 but I have a 2000 that had this same problem. Replaced the sensor and the problem was solved.
I hope the 96 is not to different than the 93 because I just replaced the crankshaft sensor on my 96. It was located under the power steering pump. I loosened the bolt that holds the tank and positioned it out of the way. Then is was just a matter of one screw and wire harness. The whole proceedure took only 15 minutes. Hope this helps.

The CAMSHAFT position sensor is located below the power steering pump. The CRANKSHAFT position sensor is behind the harmonic balancer.
the power stroke
If you are referring to the Crankshaft sensor, or crank angle sensor it is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment near the harmonic balancer. (For the 3.1 L) I have a 95 with a 3.1L and it had intermitant missing and starting problems. I replaced the crank position sensor (which was located behind the harmonic balancer) and the camshaft position sensor (located under the power steering pump) and it corrected the problem.
No Fuel Or IgnitionThere's not one on the ESI if you are not getting fuel check the fuel pump under the back seat or if that's not it check the crankshaft or camshaft sensor if they are broke it will activate the asd relay which will cut your fuel and power to the ignition coil pack.
