Tip & How-To about Plymouth Grand Voyager

How to change the crankshaft sensor on 98 plymouth grand voyager se 3.0?

A very helpful tip in changing the crankshaft sensor is to remove the air filter,Stick ya hand in the gap where you took off the air filter,and run it along side of the engine right above the transmission housing,as you get towards the back you will feel 10 inch bolt.This is the bolt to remove for the sensor.If you feel slightly above it you can feel the connector wire.Disconnect wire,then bolt then pull old sensor,then put new one in.Good Luck

Hi I have a Santa Fe diesel 2.2 2007,it won't start but will start with easy start. code P0336, crank sensor changed and cam sensor. code keeps on coming up got hand held machine to cancel the code.

code p 0336 refers to crankshaft (CKP) sensor --range /performance problem=== causes insecure sensor/rotor--- air gap--- wiring--- CKP sensor
check for gunk under the sensor end or in the gaps of the rotor
check wiring

97 chevy 5.7 crank sensor location

The CKP (Crankshaft Position) sensor is located in the front engine cover and is perpendicular to the crankshaft target wheel. The air gap between the sensor and the wheel is preset and not adjustable. The target wheel has three slots 60 degress apart and is keyed to the crankshaft. As the target wheel rotates, the slots passing by the sensor create a change in the magnetic field of the sensor which results in an induced voltage pulse. One revolution of the crankshaft results in three pulses (3x signal). Based on these pulses, the VCM is able to determine crankshaft position and engine speed. The VCM then activates the fuel injector and provides a spark to the Distributor. The relation between the crankshaft position sensor and the target wheel is crucial. The sensor must be exactly perpendicular to the target wheel with the correct air gap.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My car got FS engine. it cranks but no spark on plugs.replaced another distributor still got same problem.supply is on connector.

  1. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor wire harness plug.
  2. Connect an ohmmeter to the sensor terminals A and B and measure the resistance. Fig. 1: Crankshaft position sensor connector terminals. Measure the resistance across the A and B terminals 89544g27.gif
    Fig. 2: Measure the air gap between the crankshaft position sensor and the crankshaft pulley 89544g28.gif

  3. The reading should be 520–580 ohms at 68°F (20°C).
  4. If not as specified, replace the sensor.
  5. Measure the air gap of the sensor between the crankshaft pulley and the sensor.
  6. Proper air gap should be 0.040–0.080 in. (1–2 mm).
  7. If not as specified, inspect the crankshaft pulley and/or replace the sensor.

where is the crankshaft position sensor?

The crankshaft position sensor is located at right hand side of rear eng block by bell housing. Its easy to see by removing top eng cover look down thru the gap between intake manifold ports. The sensor is on the timing cover by the crankshaft. and is only $20 bucks. And for the crank pulley.The crank pulley on your Altima is on the passenger side. Jack up the car and remove the passenger side tire and inner fenderwell and you will see it.
Remove the (4) allen head bolts that hold the plastic engine cover. Remove the air tube that connects the throttle chamber to air filter box. Pull off the valve cover breather hose with the air tube. Now place a drop light under the two rubber heater hoses (at the firewall on the drivers hand side), shining the light forward towards the back side of the block (below the intake runners). To see the crankshaft sensor and connector, look between the valve cover and the throttle chambers (intake runners) on the drivers side, look straight down toward the ground… look for the sensor with a black wire connector with a green tab on the side, held to the engine block with a gold colored 10mm hex headed bolt. You will need to view the sensor from this position as you are following the steps below to remove and install the crank sensor. check fig:-- 03211f6.jpg
