    This is my sons car, and he is out of state. He took it to a local repair shop and was told it was the crankshaft sensor and it also should have the timing belt replaced. He doesn't know anything about whether the code were read. He doesn't have alot of money, so I am triing to find out if this is something that can be done without mech. Any info would be appriciated. Any idea where it is located?

Hello. One way to check if it is working is when you try to start the car does the needle move on you tac? If not then your crank sensor is more then likely the problem. It is located on the backside of the engine under the intake manifold. If is in about the center of the block. There will be a 10mm bolt holding the sensor in. If you decide to change it yourself (not to terrible of a job) unplug the sensor, remove the bolt and spin it back and forth slightly while pulling it out. It may be stoburn and you might have to work at it for a little bit (not a done of room) but it will come. When it's out the sensor will be shaped kind of like an L. I have changed a few of these over time and they can be a little stoburn. To install just reverse the process.

You Crankangle positioning sensor is located on the left side of your valve cover, it should look like a round metal piece, with some wires connected, there is a white wire connected to it for more clarity.


Whatever you do, mark the sensor exactly how it sits. One slight movement of that sensor will make your car run horrible.

Its a very touchy sensor and you ushally want to stay away from it at any cost unless you are changing it.

But make sure you mark it very carefully.

What do you do if it breaks before it come out of the hole. Is it safe to push in the engine, or call in a machanic to remove the rest.

I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Gs non turbo that has a water outlet that has been pitted and needs replacing. I cannot find the outlet for the non-turbo. Any suggestions?


Your problem is most likely because you are describing your vehicle as a "Gs". The only similar listings in the catalog are for a "GSX". (The parts counter person probably has no clue that there is a difference) The GSX is only built in a turbo version, therefore you will not find a water outlet for the non-turbo version...it simply does not exist.

Now, if you simply describe it as an Eclipse, there are water outlets listed for the turbo 2.0L, the non-turbo 2.0L and the non-turbo 2.4L engines. You did not bother to mention engine size, so I will list the part numbers for BOTH of the non-turbo engines.

For the 2.4L engine: Compressor Works Part Number 815517

For the 2.0L engine: Compressor Works Part Number 815576

Both are available from AutoZone
