Question about 1991 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Does a 1991 Dakota 5 2L have a crankshaft position sensor?

I have searched and searched for the crankshaft position sensor on my 1991 Dakota 5.2 L. It looks to me like it doesn't have one. I looked at the back of the engine on the passengers side, close to where the transmission bolts on. I didn't find anything resembling a CPS, or even any wires coming from that area. Does this truck even have a CPS?

    Brian, The truck has an issue with not starting (much later may start) and also with unexpectedly shutting down while driving (shutdown may last from a fraction of a second, to a couple seconds, to hours). Will this solve the problem?

No it has a distributor here is the prodeure for the timing sensor under the cap.

  1. Disconnect negative battery terminal, disconnect distributor lead wire at the wiring harness connector.
  2. Release distributor cap retainers and lift the distributor cap off.
  3. Scribe a mark on the edge of the distributor housing to indicate the position of the rotor. Use the mark as a reference when reinstalling the distributor.
  4. Remove the distributor hold down bolt and clamp, and carefully lift the distributor out of the engine.
INSTALLATION

  1. Clean the top of the cylinder block to insure a good seal between the distributor base and block. If the engine has not been cranked with distributor removed, proceed with step 2. If the engine has been cranked with the distributor removed proceed to step 3.
  2. Position the distributor into the engine. Make sure the O-ring seal is in place on the distributor housing. Align the rotor with the mark previously scribed on the distributor housing. Engage the tongue of the distributor shaft with the slot in the distributor oil pump drive gear. Proceed to step 4.
  3. If engine has been cranked with distributor removed perform the following:
    1. Rotate the crankshaft until number one piston is at the top of its compression stroke. The mark on the crankshaft vibration damper should be in line with the "0" TDC mark on the timing chain case cover.
    2. Rotate the distributor rotor until it is positioned pointing at the number one distributor cap terminal.
    3. Lower the distributor into the engine, making sure the O-ring seal is in place. Engage tongue of distributor shaft with slot in the distributor oil pump drive gear.
  1. Install the distributor hold down clamp and screw and tighten finger tight. Install distributor cap and wires, making sure all high tension wires are firmly secured in cap towers.
  2. Connect pick-up leads and negative battery cable lead. Set ignition timing, refer to ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES for timing adjustment

01 dodge dakota 3.9. no power to coil replaced engine control relay still no power can jump across relay get power but no start and get code for no rpm


If you're getting a code for no RPM, the PCM is not receiving a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. The PCM uses the signal from the crankshaft position sensor to fire the coil/spark plugs. Check the wiring to the crankshaft position sensor and check the sensor itself.

Where is crank position sensor on 1991 2.5l


The 1991 was a mid-sized sedan created by Chevrolet in Ontario, Canada. The Lumina is equipped with a crankshaft sensor that detects the position of the vehicle's crankshaft, sending data to the sedan's on-board computer. Having the crankshaft sensor allows the Lumina to make necessary adjustments for the engine to work optimally.

The crank sensor is on the front of the engine it triggers off the front crank pulley. The pickup you changed is the Camshaft position sensor and will cause hard starting but not a complete no start. A picture of the Crankshaft position sensor is below.
