SOURCE: crank position sensor error 11

Well, being this is v6, take off the fan, and the belt. Since the crankshaft is at the bottom of the engine, the sensor will be located near it at the front of the engine, on one side or the other. It will have a wiring harness connected to it, and should be mounted to a small bracket. It's best to remove the entire bracket, especially if the new unit came with a new one. Use BOTH new parts. Do not adjust timing at all until the sensor has been replaced.

You may need a "feeler gauge" to set this, as they (on some vehicles) need to be spaced at a particular distance from the harmonic balancer (if and external sensor). This I believe is and internal, so you should be fine simply inserting it in place.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Crank sensor location 1998 ford contour 2.5 crank but no start

It's on the block but check by spraying fuel into the throttle body if it starts there's a fuel issue like the pump relay fuse if it doesn't start your idle air control valve or throttle position sensor maybe bad it's rare for the crank sensor but it's a 98 so 20 years old it could be but the other sensors mentioned are more common the crank sensor is a magnetic pulse but the sensors for idle and position have contacts inside that can become worn-out and break contact resulting in a no start condition

Were is the crank sensor located on a 2000 ford tarus

Most crank sensors are located somewhere or near to the crankshaft or sometimes near the camshaft. Trace the wiring harness down to the bottom part of the engine around the harmonic balancer. It should be near it. Hope that helps.

2005 ford excursion cam sensor location I need to change the cam sensor and the crank sensors on my excursion and i do not know where they are located

On my 02 Excursion with the 7.3L Diesel, the Cam Position Sensor is located at the front bottom of the engine on the passengers side. There is one electrical pigtail plug that is attached and one bolt holds the sensor in position. It may be located in a similar location on your 05 Ex. I do not know where the crank sensor is located. I hope this helps.
