Crankshaft position sensor

I replaced my fuel pump on my 2004 chevy 2500 hd 4x4 becausing it was acting like it had trash, bad gas or whatever, but it was running like it was about to die. it seemed to have fixed it for about 200 miles and it is doing the same thing. i took it to a place to have them put it on one of those machines and it says something about the crankshaft position senor. any clue?

Yes, have it replaced. it can cause your symptoms. This is the great thing about codes. It definitely does not point to a bad fuel pump.

I PUT A NEW FUEL PUMP AND FILTER BUT MY SUBURBAN STILL WONT START i CAN PUT GAS IN AIR FILTER AND IT WILL START. ARE THEY A SENSOR THAT COULD BE BAD ?


If you hear the fuel pump come on when you put the key to the run position...then replace the crankshaft position sensor, I would also replace the camshaft position sensor as well because a failure there will have the same effect, and its cheap insurance against further breakdown. $80 for both at rockauto.com

When the crankshaft position sensor fails the engine will run for one second then shut off as if it ran out of gas.

Make sure your fuel pump is running; it should run about 5 seconds when you try to start the car. if not check the fuse and relay for the pump and the ground strap

Make sure your battery is in good condition with tight connections.

Get a fuel pressure gauge and measure on the fuel supply line on the rear of the inlet manifold. In my experience you need close to 4Bar while cranking. Priming pressure should be about 4.4Bar. This test will eliminate a variety of possible problems. I have had a variety of problems and found this very helpful.

The O/2 senser will not make it qit but the fuel pump and the ingition module will. does it start right back up? Fuel pumps heat up and quit sometimes opened the relay and it cools and or is cycled as you try to restart and it reclosesand you drive on. an amp test on the pump draw or even a scope test of the pump may isolate it as the bad boy. Pumps build up pressure and heat if the fuel filter is partly clogged. Change the filter as preventale maintanance and try to blow though the old one if it blows though hard it may be too late for the pump and you may have to change it too as the stuff that went thohg the pump that stopped up the filter. You only can heat the pump so much before its bad if you find it is change the relay also and check the ground wire where it connectes to the frame. The hanger unit that the pump is in fails too and it has to be changed on most models as you can't buy the pump any other way because it fails as often as the pump or is damaged as the pump fails. The ingtion ciol can fail, but not likly to start right back up you gota wait. The ECM cando it too but is not a common problem. Their may be engine control codes in the computer to help you determine the problem

On many engines with distributor less ignition systems and sequential fuel injection, a camshaft position sensor is used to keep the engine's control module informed about the relative position of the crankshaft. By monitoring cam position (which allows the control module to determine when the intake and exhaust valves are opening and closing), the control module can use the cam position sensor's input along with that from the crankshaft position sensor to determine which cylinder in the engine's firing sequence is approaching top dead center. This information is then used by the engine control module to synchronize the pulsing of sequential fuel injectors so they match the firing order of the engine. On some applications, input from the camshaft position sensor is also required for ignition timing.
The camshaft position sensor may be magnetic or Hall effect, and mounted on the timing cover over the camshaft gear, on the end of the cylinder head in an overhead cam application, or in a special housing that replaces the distributor (in the case of some of the GM applications). Operation and diagnosis is essentially the same as that for a crankshaft position sensor.  

Re  check the wire harness and the sensor installation to the camshaft sensor in Bank #1 which is where the #1 cylinder is. Good luck and hope this adds some light to you question, keep me posted and be glad to help.
