Question about Cars & Trucks
My truck just shut down the other day and i thought it was the fuel pump but the pump is working. and i have fire cause when i prime it, it starts without hesitation. and i had couple people tell me its the crankshaft sensor and that its located behind the harmonic balancer. well, it ain't there. i looked on the sides of the motor and theirs no wires or anything that leads to the sensor. help please!
You need to first run a fault code test on the EEC IV engine control system, a faulty CKP sensor will throw a fault code. To do the testing follow the instructions at the link. EEC IV Self Test Ford Fuel Injection and EEC IV Electronic Engine Control...

If the engine is a 2.4L four cylinder engine, the crankshaft position sensor is located on the engine, passenger side, where the crankshaft comes out of the engine, on the lower side. You can see the sensor from the top side, with a 2 point wire connector on it. Just disconnect the wire, and use a deep socket to remove the sensor from the engine. It should come out without spilling any oil, and if you have a new sensor available, be sure to match the O-ring on the old sensor, then lubricate the O-ring with oil, and push the new sensor in, bolt it down, reconnect the wire, and the job is done.

I would say replace ignition coil, that might me the problem, otherwise it can be the ecu, which might have some electrical problems not allowing the car to stay running. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a 94 S10
if no crank sensor by timing cover, some vehicles are controlled at the distributor. the 95-96 have sensor by cover . before 1995 this its controlled by distributor. there is no "crank sensor" on that engine the pick-up coil inside the distributor acts as the crank reference for that engine. have a good day !! 4.3 vortex engine.

Testimonial: "I knew that there wasn't a Crankshaft Sensor when I couldn't feel any wires around the timing cover. But didn't know the pickup coil was a Substitute."
