SOURCE: crank position sensor location

you will need to remove the starter to gain acess to the ckp sensor. once you remove the starter look on the engine block and you will see the sensor. The only problem with doing this repair yourself is that you will not be able to preform the crankshaft position variation learn procedure with out a factory scan tool. The vehicle may crank an run, but the timing advance curves will be wrong so the vehicle will probably cut off every time you remove your foot from the gas pedal. Hope this info helps!

SOURCE: change headlight

I just got this done. You don't have to do anything under the hood. (i took too much apart. do not do that) remove the four philips screws from the wheel well covering. with the tire turned to the inside you can reach the seal cap at the rear of the head lamp housing. two clips hold the lamp housing into the electrical socket. use your thumb nails to spread the clips and pull the lamp housing out of the electrical socket.

SOURCE: Crank Sensor in 94 Isuzu Rodeo

it's on the bottom of the motor, towards the back on the passenger side. It has a small clip of wires and one screw holding it on. You may want to pull it up on ramps- if it'll run- otherwise, get under the Rodeo, it's up a little higher than the oil pan, and to the passenger side. (it's right on top of the two lines that run to the bottom of the radiator.) You will need a 10mm socket to remove it. I have added a few pics showing the location (i just completed this task myself)

SOURCE: how to change headlight on 2007 saturn outlook

Best method that I found is to just take the 6 phillips screws (4 in the well and 2 below the front bumper cover) out of the forward wheel well panel and reach in behind the panel to the headlight assembly.

I have a 2007 saturn outlook and it has a clanking noise in the left rear wheel. It stops when you turn off the traction control

The wheel bearings in your car take a lot of abuse. Not only do they have to support the entire weight of your vehicle while it is traveling over rough roads, potholes and maybe the occasional curb, they also have to take the lateral forces of corners you take and have to do all that while allowing your wheel to spin at thousands of revolutions per minute. Unlike your engine bearings, your wheel bearings don’t have a constant supply of oil lubricating and cooling them, they have to be self-sufficient and also be sealed tight enough to keep road dust and water out of them.

Tapered BearingWheel bearings are impressive machines that accomplish all these tasks for hundreds of thousands of miles. Wheel bearings can support both horizontal loading of the lateral loading of corners by being tapered. This means the bearing surfaces, in most case tiny drums that ride in a bearing race, are situated at an angle. Mechanics call these taper roller bearings. The roller bearing is the tiny drum that supports the load while allowing the wheel to turn and the taper is what supports both horizontal and lateral loading. These types of bearings work in conjunction with bearing grease that is added just before the bearing is installed and a seal that is installed outside the bearing to keep the grease in and dust and water out. If your vehicle has a solid axle like a truck or SUV’s rear axle you may have a variety of bearing types depending on the manufacturer of the axle. Also, many new vehicles today come with sealed bearings which are entire units that cannot be serviced but must be replaced in their entirety. Sealed bearings are very convenient and easy to replace but sometimes cost more than old tapered style roller bearings. Sealed bearings are mostly found on the front wheels of trucks and SUVs with independent front suspension and on most newer cars.

No matter what type of bearing you have, the symptoms of a failed bearing are the same. A wheel bearing will usually fail due to pitting or small damage on the surface of the rollers or the bearing race. Both the surface of the rollers and the race is precision machined to tight tolerances and highly polished to allow the rollers to pass easily over the race with the addition of bearing grease for lubrication and cooling. Over time the bearing will wear slightly, allowing microscopic pieces of metal into the grease. These microscopic pieces of metal, as well as any contamination that gets into the bearing, will wear away at the highly polished surfaces causing pitting and deformation. Since so much weight is riding on your wheel bearings, and so much load is put on them in corners, even the smallest amount of surface damage to your bearing can cause a lot of noise.Bearing Noise

Bearing noise can sound a lot like a brake pad dragging or grinding. It can also sound like whirring, whining or humming depending on how much sound deadening material your vehicle has in it. Bearing noise will always be dependent on vehicle speed meaning as you speed up or slow down the noise should change frequency or loudness. Cornering may affect the noise from a damaged front wheel bearing but you may not notice it if it is a rear wheel bearing issue. Also, the longer you drive, the often the louder the humming or whining will be as the bearing grease heats up. Bearing damage usually happens slowly over the course of days or weeks or maybe even months. You may notice the noise getting louder and louder over 50-100 miles. Make sure you replace a worn bearing quickly, but it may be ok to drive for a few days to verify you have a bearing problem. A worn bearing will generate more heat than a good bearing so you can sometimes find a worn bearing by feel your vehicle’s wheels near the lug nuts. If one wheel is significantly hotter than the others, it may have a bad bearing.

The best way to check for bearing damage is raise both front wheels off the ground if it is a front wheel bearing issue, or both back wheels if the noise is coming from the rear. Anytime you have multiple wheels of your vehicle off the ground, be careful to have it properly supported and blocked. Make sure your vehicle is in neutral and the emergency brake is off. Next, spin both of the wheels. They should both spin freely and easily and continue to spin after you stop pushing them. If one wheel turns significantly harder than the other then it has a bad wheel bearing. If your wheel feels loose on your car and all the lug nuts are tight then you have an extremely damaged wheel bearing and should consider replacing it before driving the vehicle again.

Always replace your wheel bearings with the manufacture recommended bearings. Wheel bearings can effect fuel mileage, performance and ride quality so make sure you get the right replacement parts. Or ,,,,,,

You just had a noisy wheel bearing replaced, and now your ABS brake light is on, you inspect all the ABS brake sensors, and everything looks ok, none of the sensors or wires are damaged, what could be the problem?
This problem is more common than you would think, and it baffles the DIY guy trying to save a few bucks changing out a wheel bearing on their own.
Here is a possible solution to your problem; the wheel bearing you just installed is in backwards and the encoder is facing the hub, not the ABS sensor, also remember that sometimes depending on the wear on that spindle it may be beyond the limitations of using a micrometer maybe the shaft you installed the bearing on is worn beyond the limitations time to change the shaft also there again are many contributing factors to the unit making noise as you turn that switch on like i explained in the starting of different problems!! (Could You Give Me Some More Info )Hope This Helps !!! ,Best

No crank signal

Change the ECM too if they can exchange. Your car controlled by ECM so see this work.

Can't find the starter on my 1998 saturn sw1, need diagram

find the battery, just under the battery is a large bell shaped contraption between the engine and the transmission, it is called the bell housing oddly enough. the starter bolts into the bell housing on the back side of the engine. it is under the intake manifold and is a ***** to get to. buy a rebuilt starter and take it to a shop which has a lift and lots of extensions and universals in their socket sets. behind the starter in the engine block is a crank sensor, while your starter is out have the guy replace the crank sensor, another common saturn fault.

How do you change a crank shaft sensor on a 2007 Saturn Aura XR 3.6

locate the crankshaft sensor, disconnect electrical plug, make sure around sensor is clean so grit etc doesn't fall in when sensor is out, unscrew with appropriate spanner, replace with the new sensor and reconnect plug. may also need some thread tape on thread before screwing in.

Sensor location

The sensor is located on the engine, below the head the near the firewall. It is hard to get to! You get to it from under the car as the intake manifold totally blocks access to it from the top. The sensor causes the check engine light to come on it if the air gap between the sensor and the crankshaft becomes too great or too tight.
The Sensor itself probably is not the problem. There will be an electrical connector going into the end of the sensor and the other end goes into the engine block. It should be held in by two small screws BUT every year of Saturn engine has a slightly different (electrically and physically) Crank Angle Sensor
