Question about 1988 Buick Century
I have installed a crank position sensor twice on my 88 century 3.8 engine. aAfter replacing the sensor the car will start and run fine. After turning car off it will not start. Check the sensor and found bad. I have installed the sensor with the proper clearance to the pick up fins and the sensor does not show any damage of contact with the fins. I have done this twice and both time sensors bad after car runs. could there be something makeing the sensor fail like high voltage? What voltage reading should i get at the sensor plug. The manual i have tells me to OHM the sensor to check to see if it is bad and by doing this my sensor is bad.
I had the same problem with my moms car and is was the wiring going from the coil pack to the crankshaft sensor
