Where is the crankcase sensor on a 93 Oldsmoble Cutlass Supreme?
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.
Autozone carries this type of sensor, runs around $15 Answer It is located behind the engine near the firewall. It's a bit tricky to get to it, you would need to rotate the engine forward. Then look under the exhaust manifold under the cylider closest to the drivers side. 10 mm deepsocket for the bolt. That's fine but I want to where it is on a 1996 Olds. Cutlass supreme.
Where is the coolant temp sensor for the dash gauge and climate contol on a 95 cutlass supreme and is diff from usual mechancic's readout sensor for eng temp and radiator fan control?
If your standing in front of the car looking at the bumper the coolant temperature sensor will be on the driver side of the intake under the throttle body tube, it should have a black and yellow wire running to it, and under the sensor will be a pipe connector fitting, that pipe will run down toward the back of the engine.
The 3.1 engine has a crankshaft sensor behind the crankshaft pulley. Remove right front tire and inner splash panel for access. There is a second sensor on the back side (firewall side) of the engine above the oil pan on the block- near the center. Difficult to each. Bad news if you break this sensor since it can be brittle and difficult to extract if it breaks.
There's no such thing as a crankcase sensor as engine sensors are normally defined by their function rather than what they are mounted to. What you are probably referring to is the knock sensor which is usually mounted on the side of the engine block. The knock sensor monitors detonation/pinging/pre-ignition and is used by the engine management system to offset the ignition timing.
