SOURCE: Where is the Speed Sensor located on a 2005 Nissan Altima?

An engine speed sensor is mounted on the vehicle’s crankshaft and is usually where the speedometer gets its data, whereas wheel speed sensors are located individually at each wheel or axle generating a signal that changes with wheel speed.
It is important that these two speed sensors are always in good working condition to provide accurate data. If one of them gives the wrong signal, control functions of the engine ECU and ABS ECU will be largely compromised. So to have a long-lasting speed sensor, cleaning it every now and then is necessary. Simply wipe off the grime it has accumulated with a towel. Or it’s okay to carefully blow-dry it with compressed air. Anyway, it does not need to be hospital-clean, it just needs to be free from major debris and metal media.
If this didn't do it for you call autozone and they can pull up pictures of it for you and it will show the location to the exact positioning.
Hope This Helps

SOURCE: location of knock senor on 97 maxima se

Your knock sensor is located Under the hood, center, front engine area, below intake manifold, mounted on block.


A defective knock sensor may cause engine detonation or reduced spark advance and fuel economy. When a knock sensor is removed and replaced, the sensor must be tightened to its specified torque. If the knock sensor is installed tighter than it should be, it may become too sensitive and provide an excessively high voltage signal, resulting in more spark ****** than required. When the knock sensor is installed looser than it should be, the knock sensor signal will be lower than normal, resulting in engine detonation.

To replace the knock sensor:

  • Disconnect the knock sensor wiring connector.
  • Then, unscrew the sensor.
  • Remove the knock sensor.
  • Reverse the procedures to install the part.

SOURCE: high idle stalls at lights code for crank sensor

Crankshaft and Camshaft Position Sensors Camshaft Position Sensor Engine timing is determined from the relationship between the crankshaft and camshaft. This relationship is maintained by a timing chain or timing belt. The Engine Management System does not control engine timing but it does monitor the relative position and speed of these shafts by monitoring signals generated by sensors. The Engine Management System (EMS) uses signals generated by the camshaft position sensor to synchronize fuel injection to the valve sequence and for the on-board diagnostic procedure for misfire detection. The EMS energizes the injector at or near the time the intake valve opens. For misfire diagnosis, the EMS compares the number of camshaft sensor reference pulses and the number of crankshaft position sensor reference pulses received. If the EMS receives an incorrect number of pulses Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC’s) should be stored in the EMS.
If the camshaft position sensor or circuit is faulty most engines will start. Some engine management systems will then default to a pre-programmed injector firing sequence. All injectors may be energized simultaneously or all of the injectors on one bank may be energized at the same time. If the CMP data is required for misfire detection and reliable CMP data is not present misfire detection would probably be suspended.
Related Symptoms The following symptoms can be caused by an intermittent wiring connection or faulty signal to the EMS:

  • Extended crank time with a cold engine
  • Intermittent rough running
  • Unstable idle
  • Bucking
  • Hesitation
  • Stumble
  • Chuggle
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Stalling on acceleration
Crankshaft Position Sensor Engine speed is a very important input to the Engine Management System (EMS). Crankshaft speed and position are the basis for many calculations made by the computer. Crankshaft position values are transmitted to the computer by pickup coils also known as Permanent Magnet (P/M) generators, hall-effect sensors or optical sensors. The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) also known as engine speed sensor is located in close proximity to the crankshaft.
In addition the EMS uses minute variations in the CKP sensor data to determine engine misfire. The EMS uses this information in conjunction with the camshaft position sensor to perform misfire diagnostics.
Related Symptoms: No Start/Intermittent Start Condition – Can be caused by a faulty crankshaft position sensor due to loose connections, bad grounds, high resistance in the circuit, or opens in the circuit

SOURCE: 2004 Maxima Se codes P0037 and P0057. It says

the oxygen sensor looks like a spark plug with wires coming out of the top of it. it is screwed into the exhaust pipe near the engine. disconnect the wires and screw it out of the exhaust pipe turning it counterclockwise then screw the new one in and connect the wires. then clear the codes. one word of warning this is one of the most common codes and does not necessarily mean the sensor is bad. often it will appear if the engine is running too rich or lean because of another problem.

SOURCE: WHERE IS THE CAM POSITION SENSOR LOCATED ON A 2004 NISSAN MAXIMA

WHEN YOU STAND ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR YOU ONE IS RIGHT BELOW OF THE INTAKE WHICH IS BANK 2 OR THE ONE CLOSE TO FIREWALL , BANK 1 ONE IS ON SAME SIDE NEXT TO THE RADIATOR BUT THEY BOTH ON THE CAM RIGHT SIDE OF THE ENGINE, THE EASIEST WAY TO IDENTIFY THEM IS THAT THEIR CONNECTOR IS GREEN, ONCE YOU LOCATE THEM THE CLIP NEEDS TO BE PUSHED DOWN TOWARD THE SENSOR FOR THE CONNECTOR TO BE RELEASED, ONCE YOU REMOVE THE CONNECTOR THERE WILL BE ONLY A 10MM SCREW HOLDING THE SENSOR PULL IT OUT , THE SAME SETTING THE NEW ONE PUSH IT ALL THE WAY IN , THIGHT THE 10MM SCREW, CONNECT IT BACK AND YOU'RE DONE,BUT FOR THE ONE ON THE BACK SOMETIMES MIGHT BE NECESARY FOR YOU TO TAKE THE INTAKE OFF....HOPEFULLY IS NOT YOUR CASE....



Good luck!!! and if you need the crank for hard starting on hot/warm, it is located on the botton middle section on the transmission is the only cable that goes down to a small piece of metal and it is held by a 10mm screw only to protect the sensor, you will se the sensor once you remove that small about 6-8 inches piece of metal. Then you'll be able to unescrew the 10mm screw that holds the crank position sensor. when you pull it off you'll be able to see the fly wheel inside the transmission...



you all enjoy your rides out htere!!!

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on the 2002 Mitsubishi Montero sport xls 3.5 truck.


Hi David, The link below is how to test the crank sensor (1997-2004 3.0l Montero, Hope this helps......CHEERS
http://easyautodiagnostics.com/mitsubishi/3.0L/crankshaft-position-sensor-test-1#3
The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor is located behind the timing belt... but testing it is done without removing the timing belt or its components. This is due to the fact that the crank sensor's connector is located on top of the engine and in plain view (next to the ignition control module). In the photo below, the orange arrow points to the location of the crankshaft position sensor connectors (photo applies to: 3.0L 1997-2004 Montero Sport).

Hi Kim,drive to Autozone and have them test battery and alternator,it's free,to test the starter,you will have to remove and take it to them to bench test.

Twice now my 2004 Nissan Maxima has completely died as I was coming to a stop at an intersection. Both times it started back up again after about 10 minutes and then runs normal. I just don't want to...


I can guarantee your car keeps cutting off because there is a problem with your crank sensor. I have a '04 maxima SE and the day I paid my car off it did the exact same thing, it cut off then cranked back up a short while later and when I took it to the dealer there was a problem with the crank sensor. You might wanna check that and get it replaced soon...it's cheaper if u dont do it at the dealer tho

How do I replace the mass airflow sensor on a 2004 Maxima?


The mass air flow sensor will be in the air intake going to the throttle body. Look for a 3-4" hose, trace that back to a box looking component. The sensor should be in there.
