I'm assuming the sensors are to the REAR of the engine compartment.

There's a bracket inside the motor that they thread into. You're going to have to somehow, get hold of it and back it out. If you have room, a reverse drill bit and an easy out will do the trick but you'll have to get a drill in there to do the work. If you know anyone with a right angle drill, that will help a lot. Otherwise, you're looking at a major undertaking.

Locate crankshaft sensor on 1996 crystler New yorker (where is the crank shaft found on a 1996 Crystler NewYorker?


The crank shaft is actually an internal mechanical part of the engine (see last picture) however the crank shaft position sensor uses through what they call a "hall effect" with a componant inside the transmission. The crank shaft turns which in turn turns the componant inside the transmission. Below are a couple of pictures of the location of the crankshaft position sensor as well as what the plug looks like so you know you are removing the correct part. Hope this helps.....

Replacing camshaft position sensor, Sable 2003,Ohv


usually if the magnet in the sensor comes out it destroys the cam position shaft,(it should have a half moon shape when u remove the sensor from the cam pos/oil pump drive. if the half moon is damaged or missing u must replace the cam pos/oil pump drive, and yes it is timed with the engine. wot i have done is try to locate where the half moon was on the drive it usually leave a trace of where it was. now index where the half moon is at remove hold down bolt and remove the driver assy. install the new drive, clock the half moon shaft to match the one u just removed once u get the half moon shaft where u want it and the oil pump rod alines and the whole housing is down install the hold down clamp. now to get rid if that check engine lite youll have to plug a scanner in and look at the live data adjust the cam position till u have plus or minus 2 degrees

Remove (R) front wheel, remove engine splash Guard, Remove crank pulley, remove lower timing belt cover. The Crank sensor is located behind the crank shaft pulley!!

Where is the crank sensor located on a chevy malibu 2001


It should be down near the crankshaft pulley. Remove the the right front wheel and the splash shield, it should be there next to the pulley.
