As the main sensor the computer uses to calculate the timing of the spark, it can cause a no spark condition. Or sometimes if not working right, the engine won't stay running-it will start and quickly shut off. You cannot really tell if it is working or not, without testing the circuit (3 wires usually-a ground wire, a signal wire to computer, and a 5 volt reference signal from the computer).
If you have no spark on a spark plug wire, it could be the crank sensor or circuit, but without testing it is just a guess.

SOURCE: Where is the crankshaft position

It is stuck in bellhousing of the transmission near the rear head. The new crank sensor will come with a piece of gasket paper on the end of the sensor. Install the sensor all the way in against the pick-up wheel. When you crank the engine the wheel will rip off the paper and the adjustment will be correct.

Jsut want to know where crankshaft position sensor


Hi!!

here are illustrations of the CKP (crankshaft position) sensor in 2.3L and 3.0L.

Note: In the bottom of the 2.3L drawing says Trottle Position (TP) Sensor, this is wrong, It should say CKP Sensor.


2.3L Engine


The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is located to the left of the crankshaft pulley.
