Crankshaft sensor needs to be replaced.First try readjusting the old crank sensor and see if that is helping to make the car start,if not then sensor needs replaced.

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

SOURCE: Hi, 96 vs v6 commodore.when

Look for vacuum leaks had a similiar problem in my car. a small split in a hose can cause havoc, and is usually only noticeable at low revs, like changing gears in an auto and sitting at a set of traffic lights.

It can be a long process checking all the hoses but it will give you a good look round the engine.

Changing harmonic balancer


Nope! Why don't you give the mechanic a tune to see if it's running rough because of lean mixture, fail ignition coils, worn spark plugs....could be one of those things. Because when yours is rough at idle, it means the mixture is not right, more likely be lean or one or more cylinders not igniting properly. Got nothing to do with harmonic balancer. But do check motor mount for cracks, but faulty mounts only give you excessive movement that you can really feel it KICKS when you change from P - R - D.

How to change crankshaft sensor on 1999 grand price gt


To get to the sensor, the harmonic balancer pulley on the crankshaft has to be removed. The center bolt on the harmonic balancer is on very tight. To loosen without an impact wrench, remove starter motor and wedge a piece of wood against the flywheel, or use a pry bar and hold the ring gear on the flywheel rigid, while loosening the crank bolt. The engine will try to turn backward when you loosen the crank bolt, so you have to hold the flywheel rigid. Once the bolt is removed, see if you can get the harmonic balancer pulley off without a gear puller. Just try tapping it to see if it slides off, or use two screwdrivers on each side behind the pulley and see if you can start it sliding off. If it is on very tight, as many are, you will have to get hold of a harmonic balancer removal tool-a simple, inexpensive puller that bolts onto pulley and can be drawn off. You might be able to rent the tool too.
BTW, you will need to have the wheel removed from passenger side, and the inner fender cover removed to get to the crankshaft. Once the pulley is off you can unbolt the sensor and put the new one on. GM recommends using a sensor alignment tool to install, because the thin vanes on the back of the harmonic balancer pass through the sensor, and if not aligned right could damage one or the other. If you don't have the tool, put the sensor on loosely mounted, just snugged up finger tight, then test the pulley will slide through the sensor slots without touching either side of sensor. If it looks right, tighten down the sensor in place, install the harmonic balancer pulley and tighten the center crank bolt to about 105 foot pounds.
Wedge the flywheel again so the engine won't turn when tightening the crankshaft bolt.
Good luck, and hope you get it.

Noisy motor front end vn v6 commodore, bad rattle sound??????????


It sounds like your timing chain may be worn, A bit of a pain to change but do-able if you have the tools and some time. The harmonic balancer makes more of a knock than a rattle.

I changed the harmonic balancer and now it is terribly out of time. Didn't touch any timing belts, distributor or the like. Any advice?


There may be a magnet on the harmonic balancer for the crankshaft sensor,

The cam and crank sensor call for spark to the plugs..

Some cars you need a Harmonic Balancer Installer Adapter,
to make sure everything is lined up and gaped..

Check the crankshaft sensor for damage from inproper install, also check the wires going to sensor,, some times the harmonic balancer are such a Pain!! to come off the sensor or wires get damage in the battle.
