    Ok lmao, would you happen to know the real way of going about to install this sensor? I haven't purchased the car just yet, but I'm almost positive I'm going too, just would like to know for my boyfriend because he's the one going to be installing it.

    Thank you.

I would have it done at a good shop because it is very hard to get at half way up the back side of the engine hold on by a ten mm.bolt and it is ceramic plastic so if your not careful it could break off in the block.i have been a professional 26 years and the situation could become harry.if it seizes up in the block.also make sure this is the problem this car would be worth fixing.thanks for your question

The crank sensor is should be on or close to the cover of your timing gear, and the physical location isn't usually the problem, but you will have to recalibrate your timing after installation, or you could possibly damage your engine. I hope it goes well for ya. Local mechanics usually do it in about 2 hours, might cost $200-$400 dollars. If you can set your timing, you are golden. Good luck

SOURCE: crank position sensor location

you will need to remove the starter to gain acess to the ckp sensor. once you remove the starter look on the engine block and you will see the sensor. The only problem with doing this repair yourself is that you will not be able to preform the crankshaft position variation learn procedure with out a factory scan tool. The vehicle may crank an run, but the timing advance curves will be wrong so the vehicle will probably cut off every time you remove your foot from the gas pedal. Hope this info helps!

SOURCE: How to change Crank Positioning Sensor

If you go in thru the passenger side wheel well you can get your arm in with a wrench to remove the hold down bolt. Alot of times the sensor is stuck in the block. You might have to twist and work it back and forth. Spraying it with Carb cleaner will help. In case you don't know it is located on the back of the block and you can see it if you look up between the engine and transmission from the bottom. You will be mad at this car and your hands will hurt when you finally get this changed.

Where can I find the crank sensor on a 2009 Nissan Titan v8 truck?


i think it's the starter. On most nissans, the starter and the crank position sensor are close to each other. Some nissans have 4 position sensors, between crank sensor, crank angle sensor, cam position sensor, and sensor sensing sensor, oh and cam angle sensor. Oh wait, maybe it's a bad ground. Nope, gotta be the staerter.

My engine stalls?


The crank sensor is located behind the crank pulley on the 3.8 liter. The crank pulley must first be removed. A 15/16" socket, three very long 8 x 1.0 bolts (pretty sure that is the size, some large washers, and a crank pulley pulley will be required.

With the crank pulley removed mark the bracket where the old crank sensor is located so that the new sensor can be placed in exactly the same position. Failure to do this will result in the new sensor and/or the crank pulley being severely damaged.

Then it's as simple as removing the old sensors and installing the new one.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

My service engine soon light is on and it reads that the engine speed signal circuit is the problem, what should I do!


This is normally caused by the Crank Sensor. The Engine Speed signal is given by the Crank sensor, not the vehicle speed sensor. Most people get confused and replace the speed sensor instead.

So to resolve your problem you will need to replace the crank sensor. The engine speed sensor code is always related to the crank sensor failure.

Thanks Jay!

Crank sensor and timing belt related?


Its possible, was the crank sensor physically damaged or just an internal failure. That would determine if it was a coincidence or not.

2002 Chevy Silverado, crank sensor installed. can't start truck.


After installing a new crank sensor, a Tech 2 will need to be hooked up in order to complete what is called a relearn procedure on the new crank sensor. Until this is done, your truck's ECM is unable to determine when cylinder #1 is at TDC and electronic timing is unable to be performed. Need to tow to GM dealership for this proceedure.

My car is putting and jerking which sensor will cause this


The crank sensor will cause this problem, and set these other codes. It controls the ignition, and the knock sensor is timing related. I would go with the crank sensor first. Good Luck
