Where is the crank position sensor located?


its not your crank positioning sensor. all the CPS does is control your spark plugs up to around 500 rpms (while trying to start) once started the ECM takes over that function in conjuction with your cam position sensor

P03440 how can i fix it


There is no code po3440...if you mean code p0340 then it is a cylinder identification problem and is usually accompanied by a misfire or possibly a no start condition. it refers to the crankshaft position sensor and is usually solved by simple replacement of the sensor. There are other way less likely problems that can set this code but if you are going for self repair then I would try the sensor first. This website apparently does not ask you to provide much info so I hope I understood this problem.

1996 Saturn SL 1. Does the crankshaft pulley bolt requeire sealer?


According to a book, I don't know, but my rule of thumb is to put red loctite (Loctite 277) on all bolts for flywheel or anything ataching to the crank that I don't want comming off. Then again I work on diesel applications so my rule of thumb for auto could be off base. One thing though, when using loctite you take the dry torque spec of the bolt and multiply by 75% or 0.75 and that is your new torque spec. also anything touching a crankshaft or camshaft i would sugest using new bolt and or nuts.

OBD will not pass on saturn.It tells me I need a camshaft position sencer.My garage doesnt want to mess with it.Where is this item located and is it an easy replaced piece?


The 4 cylinder engine in your 1996 Saturn SL doesn't use a cam sensor. I know, then how could there be a code for the cam sensor? Well, The electronic ignition (EI) module supplies a signal to the PCM whenever it determines that the #4 cylinder fired on its compression stroke.

You should start by checking to make sure your spark plug wire terminals on the ignition coils are not corroded. Using a multimeter, check the resistance and continuity of each ignition wire. If your car is misfiring, replace your spark plug wires and have the code cleared at your local AutoZone or Advance Auto, unless you have a code scanner.

If the code comes back, most likely you have a bad crankshaft position sensor throwing the code. While the engine is running there should be a +5 volts on the crank sensor everytime the magnetic pickup reads the crankshaft. Using a multimeter you can check the voltage to see if the sensor is functioning properly.

Cranks but does not fire. put gas into intake still no start.


First off check and verify you have sufficient fuel pressure with a fuel gauge if the fuel pressure is good next verify you have spark remove one of the sparkplugs and instert a spark tester into the sparkplug wire and crank the engine around and observe that there is spark, if theres spark remove all spark plugs and perform a compression test the compression should be no lower then 180 PSI for that engine, next if theres no spark unplug the 4 wire connector from the coil pack and with an ohm meter ohm across the purple and yellow wire the resistance of the crankshaft position sensor should be between 700 and 900 OHMs if its not replace the crankshaft posistion sensor its located behind the engine in back of the starter, if you dont have fuel pressure check the fuel pump relay and fuse, if they both are okay then the pump is probably bad and you will have to drop the gas tank to access the pump.

My saturn 2000 ls2 will turn over but it won't start. I checked the air and fuel filters and the fuel pump is working.


check that you have signal at the crankshaft sensor,also check for spark at the spark plugs.
