How to replace the crank sensor?

opel. 1.6L

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.
Z16SE/X16SE 62 (5400)/138 (2600) Z16XE/X16XE 74 (6000)/150 (3600) Z16XEP/X16XEP 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.

Opel astra twinport 1.6 2006 Z16XE TURNS OVER BUT WONT START

Hi, Have a diagnostic scan done and also a mechanical error trace ,
the solution to the problem could be the CKP crankshaft position sensor or a wiring related issue, it could also be the fuel pump , the pump relay , engine management actuator . In order for your engine to start it requires the following:
Fuel pressure and volume
A proper spark
Correct valve timing and ignition timing
A decent battery vitally important as all engine management relies on it.
Hope this helps a bit
Regards Higgins.

Error code 1336

Hi there:
The p1336 code you have relates to the crankshaft position sensor. Here's a brief description:

You will need to check the connections and grounds going to the crankshaft position sensor. The sensor is bolted to the transmission bellhousing and reads the teeth on the flywheel. If you may have damage to the teeth on the flywheel, this is where the code is coming from. If not, remove the sensor, and ohm it out using an ohmmeter. It should have approximately 166.5 - 203.5 ohms [at 20 degrees C (68 degrees F)].

Hope helps.
