This depends on the engine type.
The most common engine series in the Z3 is the 6 cylinder engines with dual VANOS. They have two camshaft position sensors located on the upper front of the engine. While the sensors are (barely) visible from above if you know where to look, they are much more easily located with a small mirror.
It's common for the original exhaust camshaft sensor to fail, and that's almost certainly the reason for this question. A replacement aftermarket sensor is about $40, while a BMW branded part is about $110. A new o-ring (under $1) is good idea. This sensor takes only about three minutes to replace. You'll need a 5mm hex key to remove the single screw holding the sensor clamp. Unclip the electrical connector, unscrew the clamp, pull the sensor straight out, and reverse the steps to install.
The 2001 BMW 325 crankshaft position sensor can be found on the back of the engine. The position sensor will be near the bottom of the rear engine cover.
Located next to the crankshaft pulley
The crankshaft position sensor is located at the driver's side bell housing. There are two sensors exactly alike being held with an Allen bolt. The one sensor closest to the front of the car is the speed sensor and the one closest to the rear of the car is the crankshaft position sensor. Hope that helps...
The crankshaft position sensor on this car is at the front of the motor on the passenger side. It is forward of the water pump inlet on a little mount. The toothed wheel it monitors is attached to the crankshaft behind the pulleys.
if you are facing the engine it will be on the left upperside of the crank pully, on a target wheel. is it hard to remove and replace
The 1996 BMW 328 camshaft position sensor is located on the front of the cylinder head. The camshaft position sensor should be labeled as such.
Its at the backside of the engine..look in the area of were the starter is.you will find it there
we cannot locate the crankshaft sensor for our 316 BMW petrol manual
It gauges the revs of the crankshaft (thats the rpm you see on your speedometer)
It's on the drivers side of the engine, against the trans, under the starter. It usually has a 4 pin connector on it and the connector is facing the front of the vehicle.
The sensor is located at the front of the engine near the oil filter housing. To the left of the housing. 2.5 Z3
It is on the n/s of the engine just below the starter motor. It's a real hassle to get to. I am trying to do one at work at the moment. If I take out the starter I might be able to get at it.
I mean a Trans position sensor I mean a Trans position sensor
Crankshaft positioning sensor fault.
The front oxygen sensor is located on the exhaust manifold of the BMW 318ti. The rear oxygen sensor is located in the head pipe.
Near bottom of trans bell housing right side
small sensor on front of cylinder head. connected under manifold,must remove manifold.

X5 does not equipped with V6 engine. It's I-6...
Bmw 528 1997 not start
The oxygen sensor bank 1 is located in the exhaust manifold. The oxygen sensor bank 2 on the 1996 BMW 328is is located in the head pipe.
Yes,either above the A/C compressor or the altrnator(front of engine)
look at the front of the engine on the bottom pulley known as crank shaft at a 10:00 position and another one at bottom of the bellhousing where the transmission meets the engine slightly to the passenger side
The knock sensor on a BMW 740Il is located on the top of the engine. It is mounted under the intake manifold.
