This could be your problem and how to check it out.
I have Had the same problem as you and i have a S-10 1997 truck. Unfortuanly it was not a sensor. The connecting bearing spun in the engine, until it was small metal chips, then they get suck into the oil pumps screen, and you loose oil pressure or have pressure when motor starts for a few second's, the engine makes a knocking sound and does not run smooth at all.
How to check if it is a spun bearing very simple dran the oil out of your truck Check the Bolt that you took out of the oil pan and see if there are small metal flaks stuck to it, also look up in the oil pan bolt hole to see if you see large metal pieces there. I have a repair manual and a owners manual for the S-10 and it does not list a crank case sensor.
What can cause this problem is a long time between oil changes, that is what happend to me.
I want to elaborate this hole is below the crank, the crank chamber does not hold pressure and does not hold oil. so can i put a weld patch over it and call it done?well if there is a hole in it can it really hurt to try it?
standing at the radiator it is the 2 wire sensor all the way to the right of the transmission case. standing at the radiator it is the 2 wire sensor all the way to the right of the front of the transmission case
Cranks and turn over are the same thing. It may crank or turn over and not start. If that is the case, find out if it needs fire or fuel and go from there.
It depends on what you mean by 'blown'. If it is the cylinder head gasket or the core plugs that have blown then you probably can. If you have a connecting rod through the crank case then no you can't.
a speed sensor tells the vehicle computers how fast the vehicle is going, and also possibly operates the speedometer. If it is a wheel speed sensor it tells the anti-lock brake system how fast the individual wheel is turning and activates the anti-lock brakes in case of a skid.
It does not have a crank case sensor.It does not have a crank case sensor.
The crankshaft sensor is located at the bottom of the engine timing chain cover. Use the owner's manual in case you need help.
replaced crank case valve location at valve cover
On a 2004 Kia Optima, the crankshaft sensor is located on the front of the transmission case. The sensor is adjacent to the flywheel.
6.0 powerstroke had crank case sensor replaced by a dealership. 24hrs of runtime and engine refuses to start again. what happened to owning a reliable diesel??

There is no oil in the crank case,,you use mixed gas and oil that's what lubes the crank bearings and piston rings.
Per Clymer manual... .8 Liter .85 U.S. Quart
YES, All engine must have Positive crank case ventilation. That is what PCV stands for.
It is possible, but not guaranteed in every case. The crank position sensor is a little bit redundant, since there are other sensors available to the engine's control module, which could give it essentially the same data required for the engine to start and run. Regardless, if the crank position sensor is found to be defective, it should be replaced.
