Where is the crankshaft position sensor on a 2001 Chevy Tahoe with a 5.3?
The crankshaft position sensor is located right above the starter, you may have to remove the starter for better visibility.
To change the crankshaft position sensor of the 1999 Tahoe, you must first disconnect the negative battery ground cable to avoid accidents. Then, remove the wire harness from the sensor, disconnect the wires, and pry out the bolt. Place the new sensor in the same area, replace the bolts, and reconnect the wires. Test the sensor to see if it is working.
The crank position sensor (for the Chevy Tahoe/Suburban/GMC Yukon/Full size trucks) is located near the back of the engine block, on the passenger side. Near the starter. Note - the crank sensor (as well as the cam sensor) can occasionally leak oil and drip down, making it appear to be a rear main seal leak. If you have a leak at the bell housing, don't automatically assume a rear main leak.
What would cause a 1996 Chevy Tahoe to start hard randomly misfire on the right bank 1 3 5 7 and idle rough?
It is behind the starter. You will need to remove starter to get to it. I WOULD CHECK TO SEE IF IT IS NOT IN FRONT OF THE OIL PAN 1ST, BOTTOM OF TIMING CHAIN COVER.. MY 1999 CHEVY TAHOE 5.7 IS LOCATED THERE... EVERYONE TOLD ME ALSO THAT IS WAS ABOVE THE STARTER. AND AFTER TAKING IT OUT . IT WAS NOT THERE;...
The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) is located at the lower front of the engine on the engine front cover, also called the timing cover. Through a use of magnetic pulsation, the CKP sensor provides the PCM (control module) with a crankshaft position signal. The PCM uses that signal to determine the spark sequence (firing order) for each cylinder. It also uses the signal to precisely control ignition timing and calculate engine speed, etc. Hope that…
