SOURCE: Crankshaft Position Sensor

The crank sensor is on the front of your engine behind the harmonic balancer. You will need a balancer puller for a 3.8 and a crank sensor alignment tool to do this lob.

SOURCE: location of mass air flow

It should be along the air intake. A block box about 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" held on by 4 ? screws. Easy to replace, but kind of pricey. They make a product for cleaning them. Try that first. Do not touch the wire resistor that goes into the intake. It's delicate.

NOTE Use care when handling the coolant sensor. Damage to the coolant sensor will affect the operation of the fuel control system.

  2. Drain the coolant system.
  3. Disconnect the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical connector.
  4. Carefully back out the ECT sensor.

To install:

  1. Coat the threads only with sealer P/N 9985253 or an equivalent.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  2. Install the ECT sensor and tighten the ECT sensor to 18.5 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  3. Connect the ECT sensor electrical connector.
  4. Refill the engine coolant system.

Temp gauge soesn't work


IF YOU CHANGED THE FLUID AND THEN THE SENSOR FAILED IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS AIR IN THE RUBBER PIPING TO THE TOP OF THE ENGINE MANIFOLD. THERE IS A BLEEDE VALVE TO RELIEVE TRAPPED AIR AND ONCE THAT IS GONE THE GAUGE WILL RESPOND. YOU HAVE AN AIR BLOCK AND THE SENSOR NEED TO BE IN THE ANITFREEZE SOLUTION TO FUNCTION.
