Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on a 2003 nissan altima, 2.5 litre


Hello there,

The sensor is located on the engine block, near where the transmission bolts up, on the firewall side. The sensor has to be replaced from the top, and if you don't know what you are doing, it can be extremely difficult to put one in. I highly recommend you take it to someone who is knowledgeable in this installation.

Best of luck.

Where is the crankshaft and camshaft sensor located?


Here's some pics of my 2003 Altima Crankshaft Sensor. Often mistaken by the Camshaft Sensor because both are identical sensors. They are each located in different locations. I've seen diagrams with the WRONG labeling. Again, this is so confusing for even a mechanic to understand because both sensors carry the same part number which is rare. http://x.nissanhelp.com/forums/members/digitaldxing-albums-2003-nissan-altima-crankshaft-position-sensor-picture331-2003-nissan-altima-crankshaft-position-sensor.html

Where is the crank sensor located I need to replace it


Hi, behind the engine (driver's side), mid lower part on the engine block near the transmission. In order to access, you must remove the intake air hose. It will be hard to see it, the only way is to reach down and feel for the electrical harness that connects to it. hopefully this helps!!

You can also locate it by viewing this link..

Crankshaft and camshaft sensors location in nissan altima 2003


You are incorrect sir. There is a very good Youtube video showing you exactly where it is that is how I changed mine. The Crankshaft is located behind the engine block below and around from the cam sensor which is easly spotted looking at the engine. The crankshaft is in a difficult spot but once you figure out where it is it's easy...ish hope this helps

Crankshaft Position Sensor Error P0335 recurred after r&r


In the kit there are two sensor that look identical. The one for the crankshaft has a white paint mark on it near the bolt hole. Make sure that it is in the right location.

Where crank shaft and camshaft?


The camshaft position sensor is located on the timing cover, near the top of the motor. The crankshaft position sensor is located on the same timing cover near the crankshaft. Just a side note, more than likely the crankshaft position is your issue and it's under a recall from Nissan and they will replace it for free.

Crank shaft sensor


I have 10 years experience in a Nissan dealership and I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Crankshaft Position Sensor is NOT located next tp the crank pulley... it is rather at the other end of the engine near where the transmission bellhousing bolts to the engine block. It is on the side toward the firewall near the bottom. Even if you can get the vehicle on a lift and get under it, you can't really see it... It's more of a feel thing... There was a campaign (recall) on these engines to replace Crank Position and also Cam Postion sensors. Check with your dealer- the campaign might be open. You will need your VIN number when you call.
