I have 10 years experience in a Nissan dealership and I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Crankshaft Position Sensor is NOT located next tp the crank pulley... it is rather at the other end of the engine near where the transmission bellhousing bolts to the engine block. It is on the side toward the firewall near the bottom. Even if you can get the vehicle on a lift and get under it, you can't really see it... It's more of a feel thing... There was a campaign (recall) on these engines to replace Crank Position and also Cam Postion sensors. Check with your dealer- the campaign might be open. You will need your VIN number when you call.

There are many that have said that you can see the sensor from above. I can't seem to find it. Here are some pics of my 2003 2.5 Altima. Here's some pics of my engine.

Where is the crank positioning sensor


I does not have a crank position sensor. It uses a cam sensor located in the bottom of the distributor. Sometimes the seal will fail on the internal shaft and the vehicle will not start. Replace the distributor and it will work if that is your problem.

I would be looking towards the crank angle sensor failure. Its located right above the passenger side drive shaft, where it goes into the trans. Good luck

CRANK SHAFT POSITION SENSOR 20002 NISSAN ALTIMA


1st, Nissan had a recall on Crank position sensors for 2002-2006 Altima's. Check with you dealer before you go doing any repairs. You may discover you can get your car repaired at no charge.
NHTSA Campaign ID number :O7V527000
Symptom: Erratic behavior. Stalling and no starts and very difficult to diagnose due to the time frame in which the component actually malfunctions. The warranty should not be limited to the original owner.
I would also need more specifics as to which engine you have so I might assist you in where the location of the sensor is. The Altima had a 4 and a 6 cyl engine offered that year.
