Crankshaft Position Sensor location 04 PT Cruiser

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser and how do I remove it? I've heard to try and locate it from the bottom of the car as well as from the top. I don't know. I've already replaced the camshaft sensor and the battery. The car died @ a red light and wouldn't start afterwards. It tries to turn over but won't start completely. There is no spark to fire it up..plugs/wires are good, ignition coil is working. Last option from what I've been told is the crankshaft position sensor but I cannot locate it. Thank you.

    Its under the starter on a 2004 nonturbo pt cruiser. If you've taken cars apart it takes @ 1.5 hours. The airbox,battery,grill,radiator support,electric fan and starter gets moved away to get to it. It's a pain and there's no other way to get to it. It's tight under the starter.

Front of car just above starter assembly on engine block, you'll need a 10mm and 8mm socket. Hope this was helpful.

REMOVAL - 2.0, 2.4, 2.4L TURBO
The Crankshaft Position Sensor is in the front of the engine block just under the starter motor (CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR LOCATION).

Location of crankshaft position sensor for 2003 pt cruiser


Had this problem. The crankshaft position sensor (on 2003 non-turbo) is located directly under the starter. The Haynes and Chilton books will tell you the complete opposite. They state that it is located near the alternator. WRONG. Oh, it is really a pain to get to FYI.

Crankshaft sensor location and replacement procedure


It is on the rear of the engine, passenger side. You need to access it from the underside and it is halfway up the block between the head and the oilpan. It is real close to where the engine and transmission meet.
