The easiest way I have found is to push the broken sensor all the way in the block and turn the crankshaft. This action will break the sensor off in pieces as they will fall into the oil pan. This may sound like a dumb idea to some , but it has worked for years.
I find that with most of those sensors have a plastic housing, so just put a bit of heat on them and they will shrink and you can just pull it right out easy.
that is the crankshaft sensor, it tells what position the crank is in to tell the computer when to fire injectors and spark.
why dont i have spark on 2001 galant you might have to change your Crankshaft position sensor. i just had that problem with my galant after timing belt broke.
Check your Crankshaft position sensor. Located on the right of the crankshaft. Probably got damaged when belt broke.
No it wouldn't, but jump starting the car or over heating the engine would crap out the sensor. I'm in the process of changing my crank position sensor now, but my original broke in my engine block ... so I need to drill a hole so I can pull it out without pushing it in my block. :(
pull it apart
As I recall on my '87 chev celeb wagon (multiport 2.8) its on the back bottom of the block between the firewall and the motor. If the sensor is old (and it prolly is) it will be brittle and probably break off as you try to remove it. I guess you could spray wd40 or something on it but mine broke off and I had to pay somebody to take off the oilpan and pop it out from the inside. You might be able to do that yourself but if not now ya know what to expect. GOOD LUCK!
AnswerI am not sure exactly where you broke it and what broke but check out the following website for pics and instructions on how to remove. http://mykidz.net/GTP/CrankPosSensor.shtmlHope this helps."G" OK ITS THE METAL PART THAT GOES IN THE ENGIE
you didnt connect the crankshaft sensor on the bell housing of the tranny or you have the sensor too far from the torque converter just adjust it down but not too far down that it touches the convertor. or else the sensor is defective or the wire is broke. it controls thespark to the engine
you need a large socket and a breaker bar to manually turn the cam until the timing mark is placed right
Sorry I meant knock sensor on 1993 Chevy blazer k1500
On a '99 S-10 2.2, the camshaft position sensor is located on the passenger side of the engine block, about halfway back. You can access it through the wheel well (remove the wheel first, and be sure to use a reliable jack stand). It is directly in front of the coil pack, (about 2 - 3 inches). It has a 3-prong plug. Be very careful when trying to remove it. (I broke the crankshaft sensor off, almost had to pull the engine. I ended up drilling two holes in it and pulling it with a small needle-nosed vice grip.) Don't try to pry it out with a screwdriver. Get ahold of it with vice grips and pull with a twisting motion.
I would not recommend changing this yourself. I just tried replacing mine yesterday and the old one broke off inside the block and fell into the oil pan. Now, I either have to remove the front suspension or pull the engine to remove the oil pan. Take it to a dealer, and when it breaks it is their problem. I was able to access this part from under the passenger side of the truck. It is above midway back on the engine block and is slightly hidden behind a frame mount. You will most likely see a wiring harness that enters the engine block at a 90 degree. Unscrew the one screw holding it in and gently wiggle it straight out of the engine block. Mine came out with no issues.
It is located on the passenger side of the engine block just under the ignition module you can see it from underside. The easiest way to see it and access it is to jack up the passenger side front wheel and take the wheel off there is a rubber flap in the wheel well you can push out of your way. I am warning you be very careful removing it mostly made of plastic I broke one off leaving most of the sensor in the engine block had to drill the rest of it out which was no fun not alot of room for you to work. Get yourself a bottle of PB Blaster and keep spraying it as your pulling out before you try pulling out the sensor try to get it free enough that you can spin it around. Hope this helps good luck it fits pretty tight!
Is it the Oil Sending Unit or as some people likes to call it the Oil Pressure Switch...
Only if it was broke in half and that is very doubtful.
That means a piston rod broke are came off of the crankshaft and went through the oil pan are side of engine block. It's JUNK
Sounds like my same problem. It was the Camshaft position sensor. Hope this helps.
they broke up?
Yes, block has a short "o" sound. "Broke" has a long "o" sound.
There are marks on both the cam mounted gears and the crankshaft. The problem is that the 2.7 engine is an interference engine which means the valves will hit the pistons if it is out of time, when your belt broke it most likely bent some valves. The best thing to do is replace the engine with a 3.2 or 3.5, if you can find a 2.7 that is good you can do that but future issues can return do to poor design of that engine.
A hole in your block comes from massive mechanical failure. Mostly a broke rod or crank. If you have a hole in your block, you need a new motor.
You know its broke by pointing the wii remote at it and you cant see the arrows your wii remote makes.
no it could keep your electric fans from coming on if your mechanic broke it you should have your mechanic replace it
You cant move from the position you broke it
it is a connecting rod that has seized on the crank / broke and went thru the block
