    You do have the crank pulley bolt removed, don't you? The center bolt has to be removed before using the balancer puller. Post back if you need help loosening the bolt. They are torqued down pretty tight.

Parts stores sell an inexpensive harmonic balancer puller. Simple to use and makes the job easy.

Replace the crank sensor on a 1996 buick park ave


you have to remove the serpentine belt then the harmonic balancer to get to the crank sensor. its located behind the balancer then disconnect the electrical plug. when replaced you have to make sure the air gap is set so the balancer blades won`t hit the crank sensor grooves.

Change a crankshaft position sensor on a 2000 eclipse


Is this a V6 or 4cyl???>>>(V6) This requires removing the Harmonic balancer (crankshaft pulley). 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!! I highly recommend having this done by a certified tech, requires special tools. Hopefully this helps!!

I changed the harmonic balancer and now it is terribly out of time. Didn't touch any timing belts, distributor or the like. Any advice?


There may be a magnet on the harmonic balancer for the crankshaft sensor,

The cam and crank sensor call for spark to the plugs..

Some cars you need a Harmonic Balancer Installer Adapter,
to make sure everything is lined up and gaped..

Check the crankshaft sensor for damage from inproper install, also check the wires going to sensor,, some times the harmonic balancer are such a Pain!! to come off the sensor or wires get damage in the battle.

Crankshaft Position Sensor


The crank sensor is on the front of your engine behind the harmonic balancer. You will need a balancer puller for a 3.8 and a crank sensor alignment tool to do this lob.

The crank sensor is near the harmonic balancer or the lowest pulley on the motor. Should be fairly easy to change. Camshaft sensor should be at the rear of the engine on top. Also relatively easy to change.
