CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR - 4.7L V-8 ENGINE
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is located at the right-rear side of the engine cylinder block and is positioned and bolted into a machined hole.

I need to know the - picture.php?albumid=525&pictureid=3211

REMOVAL

  1. Disconnect CKP electrical connector at sensor.
  2. Remove CKP mounting bolt
  3. Carefully pry sensor from cylinder block in a rocking action with two small screwdrivers.
  4. Remove sensor from vehicle.
  5. Check condition of sensor o-ring.

Note: You may find yourself in a situation where the crankshaft sensor is seized in the block and removal seems impossible. Here are the steps I took to get my seized sensor out
  1. Raise the front end of the vehicle in the air and secure it with proper jack stands
  2. Remove the front passenger tire
  3. Have an assistant "grab" a hold of the sensor with pliers through the notch in the wheel well liner, being careful not to "squeeze" to hard as to break the plastic.
  4. While your assistant applies removal pressure to the sensor (taking note to pull straight back and not rock), use a screwdriver from underneath the vehicle to rock the sensor back and forth
  5. Eventually, with the combination of removal pressure from your assistant, and the rocking of the sensor with the screwdriver, the sensor will "walk" out of the machine hole.

INSTALLATION
  1. Clean out machined hole in engine block.
  2. Apply a small amount of engine oil to sensor o-ring.
  3. Install sensor into engine block with a slight rocking action. Do not twist sensor into position as damage to o-ring may result. CAUTION: Before tightening sensor mounting bolt, be sure sensor is completely flush to cylinder block. If sensor is not flush, damage to sensor mounting tang may result.
  4. Install mounting bolt and tighten to 28 N·m (21 ft. lbs.) torque.
  5. Connect electrical connector to sensor.

I can't find the location of the crankshaft postion sensor in my 2000 Hyundai sonata


My online Sonata manual shows these possibilities, but does not identify which applies specifically to 2000 Sonata.
Also, when you talk to the dealership parts counter, you'll need to know whether your 2000 Sonata is (a) 4-cylinder 2.4L MFI DOHC engine, or (b) 6-cylinder 2.5L MFI DOHC engine.
Its easy to tell - just count your spark plug wires.

-- begine excerpt from 2000 Hyundai Sonata Repair guide --

The crankshaft position sensor is located next to the flywheel.
The crankshaft position sensor is located next to the flywheel/torque converter.
The camshaft position sensor is located on the engine near the timing belt cover and under the upper radiator hose.
The crankshaft position sensor is located on the driver-s side of the vehicle, down by the lower radiator hose.
The crankshaft position sensor is located on the engine near the crankshaft pulley.
The crankshaft position sensor is located at the front of the engine near the timing belt.

2001 4.7 dodge durango engine stalls at idle or while driving no check engine light on most the time...what is the problem ...


It could be a couple differentthings, first I would check the EGR Valve, it could be sticking open/leaking. Or it could be IAC valve (idle air control) sticking or faulty. Or it could be the MAF sensor faulty or damaged.

I HAVE A 2000 DODGE STRATUS 2.5 V6. WHERE IS THE CAMSHAFT SENSOR AND CRANKSHAFT SENSOR LOCATED


Cam is on the end of the block, crankshaft sensor is on the bottom of the block. Both are easy to change....are you changing these due to poor performance or no start condition?

Camshaft positioning sensor


The cam sensor should be in the distributer, not in the cap. They used to call them pickup coils, but now they call them Cam sensors.
