Where is the crankshaft sensor on a 2000 Silverado V8 vortec?
it will either be on the front of the engine bolted to the block right near the damper pulley. if not the it is in the bell housing on the back of the engine. NEW ANSWER: On all V8 engine 2000 and up, It will be behind the starter.
On V6 engines it is on the timing cover behind balancer. NEUTZ
Why is a 2000 silverado 5.3 Vortec hard to start and the passenger side of the engine misses when it is started?
IAT (inlet air temperature) and CTS (or CATS charge air temperature sensor) are the same thing. For most GM engines, like the 5.3L, a MAFS (mass air flow sensor) is used instead of a CATS. The MAFS is the big black cylinder with a wire bundle coming off of it that is between the clean air hose and the air filter box.
The sensor is located in between the crank pulley and front cover, just to the lft of the crankshaft. In order to change the sensor, you must, first, remove the crank pulley. With the damper off, unplug the sensor, and pull off the plastic cover. The sensor is mounted with 2 bolts, just to the left of the crankshaft. You'll need a deep 15mm socket.
The Crankshaft Position Sensor is located on the drivers side between the motor and the firewall. If it is faulty you may notice your car will not start, will turn off unexpectedly or will perform intermittently. I have provided a link to me replacing the Crankshaft position Sensor (CPS) on my 2000 Mercedes Benz S500. http://youtu.be/KTTM3VeJuA8
24x crankshaft position sensor--remove drive belt, raise vehicle up in front ( car ramps etc. ) remove the crankshaft pulley, remove the bolt and sensor wiring harness retaining bracket. remove the 24x crank sensor mounting bolts, remove the sensor and withdraw the wiring harness. for 3.1 V6 the 2.2 has a 7x position sensor. good-day !
