if the PCM scans ,cranking for 5 long seconds , does NOT throw
CKP sensor bad DTC errors, id bet its good.
why not trust the PCM to see those missiong pulses and tell you;.
call EFI gas cars do this. and do it well.
the crank sensor on all engine can be in 3 spots.
front,. rear and middle of crank.
a fast look finds this easy.
did you even look?
1.6L dont say much. there are 7 , 1.6L opal engines.
SOHC and DOHC.
62 (5400)/138 (2600)
74 (6000)/150 (3600)
76 (6000)/147 (3600)
if hell bent on swapping it out, why not buy one, ?
they will ask you engine exact name(above) or VIN and sell it to you
then look at the connector, id bet you can find it , on the engine now
with knowing the pin count and shape.
on some harder cars, FWD, the sensor takes removing the transmission to see the sensor. bolted where not easy to change.
that is why we do the tests. first. not guess.
got a scan tool ?do the tests. ask.
wild guessing see the gold looking sensor. this might be it.
