Question about Cars & Trucks
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.
