Question about Chevrolet Tracker

Flywheel bolt size

2001 chevy tracker 2.0L 4x4 DOHC. I need to remove the flywheel to get to the ckp (crankshaft position sensor) i've tried every socket and wrench from 15mm-17mm (5/8-11/16) and everything from 6 point sockets to 12 point. I'm wondering if the flywheel mounting bolts use a specialty tool or if it's just a ******* size.

    Ok for everyone who has tried to help i thank you. i removed it using a 17mm socket since the bolts are only torqued at 51lbs it wasn't to bad, i'm just going to toss it up as a dealer only size but it can be done with some finesse and your run of the mill metric socket.

I'm thinking here that the head of the bolts is not very thick in which case the socket you are using will need some modification. If you look in the socket you will see that there is a small lead in relief and this will only allow the socket to full engage on 1/2 of the bolt head. Place the socket in a vice and use a grinder to grind of the face of the socket until the sides are square across. This will give full contact with the bolt head inside the socket.. Another point, it is unusual to find metric bolts in a USA made engine so check out the other size metric sockets as European metric use 9-11-13-15-16-18-20 mm sizes compared to Asian 10-12-14-17-19-21 mm. in auto production.

This is just a shot in the dark, but maybe try a 5/8" or 11/16" or 3/4" socket. Somebody may have used SAE head bolts instead of Metric?

SOURCE: Cannot separate flex plate on a 2001 Dodge Stratus, 3.0 engine.

I think the socket is a dealer item only. I'm on a tool forum and none of the drivers have one. http://www.uktools.com/ sell a Koken 16mm and 14mm 10 point socket. SPC-69330 has a 16mm. I mailed a 10 point with a 13mm head to a tool company to ask if they will make a socket. You can try a damaged nut socket my Blue Point would go all the way on but may cut off the ends. Then you would go down to the next size. An air hammer if applied to the side will loosen the bolt.

Hello: There should be a 10mm bolt head that holds a clip. This clip keeps the speed sensor in place. Use a 10 mm wrench, socket to remove bolt/screw.

How to replace the crank shaft position sensor on a 2001 chevy Tracker V6 Lt 2.5L


Get underneath the vehicle and look at where the engine joins the transmission case.

The crankshaft position sensor will be located on the bottom or side .. usually towards the bottom..

It will be held in place with either a screw or small bolt. Undo the screw/bolt and withdraw the sensor. It's a straightforward job.

Photo below is a generic image of crankshaft sensor:

How do you replace the crank position sensor?


  1. Park your Jeep safely away from traffic.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood and locate the (CKP) sensor to the left (driver side) of the transmission bell housing, where it meets the rear of the engine block. If necessary, shift the transmission to neutral (N), raise the front of your vehicle using a floor jack and safely support it on two jack stands. Chock the rear wheels.
  3. Step 3 Locate the CKP sensor pigtail connector to the right (passenger side) of the transmission bell housing. Unplug the CKP electrical connector.
  4. Step 4 Thoroughly clean the area around the crankshaft sensor using a soft brush and a shop rag.
  5. Step 5 Note whether the CKP sensor on your Jeep model is mounted with one bolt, two bolts or two nuts. If there is only one bolt, make a note of the exact sensor position, since it is adjustable and you will need to reinstall it in the same position.
  6. Step 6 Unscrew the sensor mounting bolt(s) or nuts using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket of the appropriate size. If your Jeep model uses two mounting bolts, use the same bolts during the installation process. These bolts have been machined to provide the correct space between the crankshaft sensor and the flywheel. If you use bolts with a different configuration, your vehicle may not start or operate properly.
  7. Step 7 Remove the crankshaft sensor from your vehicle.
    Installing the Crankshaft Sensor
  8. Step 1 Thoroughly clean the sensor-mounting surface on the transmission bell housing using a soft brush and a shop rag.
  9. Step 2 Clean the mounting bolt(s) or nuts using the soft brush and shop rag.
  10. Step 3 Check the new crankshaft sensor and make sure it has a piece of paper (spacer) glued to the bottom. This spacer serves as an electrical ground. Using the CKP sensor without the spacer will break the unit the first time you try to start the engine. If necessary, you may buy the spacer through your local auto parts store or dealership parts department. Ask for part number PN05252229.
  11. Step 4 Install the new CKP sensor into the transmission bell housing mounting hole.
  12. Step 5 Start the two bolts or nuts by hand and then tighten them to 9-feet lb. (12 Nm) using a torque wrench, ratchet extension and socket. If your model has only one mounting bolt, push the new sensor against the flywheel and then tighten the bolt to 60-inches lb. (7 Nm) using a torque wrench, ratchet extension and socket.
  13. Step 6 Plug the CKP sensor electrical connector.
  14. Step 7 Lower your Jeep if you had to raise it. Remove the chocks from the rear wheels.
