Ford Expedition 2001 crankshaft sensor location and installation

  • Located front of engine, close to crank pulley
  • press the helpful button and follow me on Fixya for more tips
  • Insert the square tip of a 1/2-inch socket wrench into the square hole in the center of the serpentine belt's adjustment pulley. The adjustment pulley is the smallest pulley the belt wraps around.

  • Remove the bolts which secure the air conditioning compressor to its mounting brackets with an open-end wrench, then position the compressor to the side of the engine compartment. Do not disturb the hoses that attach to the compressor.
  • Pull the electrical connection off the crankshaft sensor.
  • Remove the two bolts that secure the crankshaft sensor against the engine with an open-end wrench, then slide the sensor out of the engine.
  • Slide the new crankshaft sensor into the engine, then install and tighten the sensor's two securing bolts with an open-end wrench.
  • Press the electrical connection onto the crankshaft sensor.
  • Position the air conditioning compressor against its mounting brackets, then install and tighten the compressor's bolts with an open-end wrench.

The crank sensor is inside the distributor and may also be called an HEI pickup.
Disconnect wiring harness and remove the two tork head screws and lift out. Now would be a good time to replace the rotor & distributor cap if you haven't done so lately.
I hope this helps.

No spark on a 1996 lincoln mark 8


A no spark is due to a failed or malfunctioning Crank Position Sensor locacted by the crank pully, near the AC compressor.

Sometimes you can upplug the sensor and when you plug it back in the car will have spark again.
However,Replacing the sensor does require removal of the AC compressor (due to space limitations) BUT you do not have to disconnect the AC lines.
Simply unbolt the compressor and gently lay it aside, and that will give you the clearance to pull the Crank Sensor from the block.

Good luck!!!
