What type of car is this..but to answer your question the flywheel would have to be out of round to make contact with the crank sensor i suspect you have a cracked or broken flywheel most of the time they will break at the center of the flywheel where the crankshaft attaches to the flywheel and would still drive for some time

SOURCE: crank position sensor location

you will need to remove the starter to gain acess to the ckp sensor. once you remove the starter look on the engine block and you will see the sensor. The only problem with doing this repair yourself is that you will not be able to preform the crankshaft position variation learn procedure with out a factory scan tool. The vehicle may crank an run, but the timing advance curves will be wrong so the vehicle will probably cut off every time you remove your foot from the gas pedal. Hope this info helps!

SOURCE: crank sensor position location

Follow your plug wires to coil pack and module. Once you found the module, follow the wires from there to crank sensor on engine block.

SOURCE: 3000gt trouble code p0340, p0335

Ive personally done time belt and water pump on a 94 3000gt and this is not a job for a rookie not saying you are but im just letting you know. These motors are ZERO interference motors and if the timing it out by one tooth buhbye valves. So if your not confident in yourself i wouldnt attempted doing this on your own. It is a long job especially in car. If your planning on changing the water pump put a new belt in the timing belt is the leading cause to failure in these engines so put a new belt you can get a kit that has all the pulleys. Now for the tensioner unless the car has lots of miles on it you wont hafta change the tensioner just remember to compress it properly. Other than that the first post was rite cam and crank have nothing to do with the water pump but keep in mind they are located at the front of the motor right where the timing belt/water pump job will be taking place so personally if you have the codes and if it was me doing the job id be doing the sensors at the same time. Also as i said before if the car has lots of miles on it your not that far from pulling the heads off so me id be doing head gasket and valve seals too that way you have a fresh motor thats good for another 100 plus thousand miles. Hope this is helpful

It should not be hitting the flywheel. You need a professional to look into this problem with a full function scanner to watch the crank sensor signal in real time.

Where is the crank angle sensor on a G13BB suzuki jiminy 1999 model

Sorry I don't have that information on file but the sensor is usually fairly easy to spot.

Possible positions are adjacent to the front crankshaft pulley (rarely), screwed low down in the cylinder block or crankcase or most commonly positioned to receive a signal from the flywheel. While sometimes mounted in a slot in the flywheel housing to receive from the periphery of the flywheel they are more often to be found on the part of the cylinder block or adapter plate that can be described as the front face of the flywheel housing.

There are geographical variations and a couple of engines fitted to the Jimny and not all engines are fitted with a crank sensor.
The front position is favourite if your engine has one.

Good luck!

You replaced all those sensor,Your problem is mechanical, The timing may have slipped.If the timing belt is good and all on the mark,how the crank position sensor, The crank get its signal from the transmission flywheel,if the flywheel is cracked and lost its position then it does exactly what you describe . You either have a cracked flywheel or a jumped timing belt.The exhaust can be plugged also

Where is the crankshaft sensor location on lanos 2001 ? I changed my camshaft position sensor and the timing belt, but the engine light still on with the same code and the mechanic said it's the...

both the single cam and twin cam engines use the teeth on the crank pulley for crankshaft sensor which is bolted in bracket attached to block near oil pressure switch, hopefully you didnt dent(bent) teeth on crank pulley from dropping it or putting pulley down a bit roughly because they bend really eazy.
also is the crank pulley bolted up in correct position?
is the timming belt tension correct from when you did cam belt?
if tension wrong or timming out by a tooth it will set crank sensor codes, even possibly cam sensor codes and if you get timming out more than 3 teeth either way(advanced or ********) you will bend valves.

Ive got a 94 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 liter i put a 93 4.0 liter and caint get it to fire but it has different distributor

i think you pretty much answered your own question there. Use the '94 distributor in the other engine and make sure that all the sensors are in place, connected and all for a 94. Also check the crank position sensor. If left in place during install, they can get damaged if the flywheel hits it. (hope you matched the flywheels too...if different, it will not run.

Buick 1990 Century the bottom pulley broke and the outer ring came off. how do i keep the pulley from spinning to take the center bolt out? And is it the harmonic balancer?

Yes this is known as the harmonic Damper and your problen is your missing a part thats why its spining a piece of metal that goes in that area that keeps it from spinning on the crank shaft you need to talk to a mechanic for hands on work
