Re: Crank sensor location 1999 dodge durango
The crank sensor is on the front of the motor on the case of the timing gear. If you want to replace it, the sensor itself isn't the problem, but you have to actually reset your timing, and get it recalibrated. If the timing isn't set, you can possibly damage your engine. But as far as location, it should be fairly easy to find. Hope all works out.
If your motor is a 5.2 V8, don't listen to Alan, dude you are telling people wrong...WRONG. it's located right behind the exhaust manifold on the passenger side. YES, take out the inner fender, it will save you time and anger. I know this is a few years old, but it ticks me off that people are giving out false information, like the **** ball above me. and usually it's the cam sensor that's on the timing cover..not crank sensor..

Replace the distributor cap and rotor. If you have fire from the coil but not from the distributor cap, you have a bad contact point between the cap and rotor. Replace both and you should be good to go,, if the information that you have supplied is correct.
The Cam & Crank Sensor controls whether the coils will give spark to the engine or not if you scan the computer it should give you a code for 1 of these sensors. They are very easy to change and are only around $50.00 each.
Remove the distributor cap and look to see that the rotor button is turning,and not stopping,the truck,may have jumped time.The timing chain may hve broke.If not,replace the pick up coil in the distributor.
Aloha We have just replaced all of what you have replaced, plus water pump, fuel pump, pcv valve and 02 sensor. Took it to mechanic today we had misfire on 1,2,6,7. Mechanic said that the 99 dodge is known for bad computers, he checked ours and works great turns out that it was the coil. Ours was jumping 1/4 inch and had a orange/yellow spark. it is supposed to have a 1 inch spark and be blue. This has solved our problems after 527 dollars later.
Check the coil!
check the wiring harness at the coil,sometimes that plug will get loose or dirty resulting in a no spark.
The only ign system parts are the crank sensor,cam sensor,dist,dist cap,rotor,spark plugs,wires,and coil,and the ecm which controls all of these,is there a check engine light on?
run a scan tool to check for stored codes or system events stored in the ecm.
