Best thing to do is remove engine from vehicle. Getting an engine stand will also help to turn engine upside down and remove all components to get access to the crankshaft. Once you have all components removed, recommend you take the engine block to a machine shop, they can check it out for you and tell you if it's best to also replace or if they can fix.

I installed a new crank shaft sensor and now the truck wont start

Probably defective or incorrect sensor, sensor wiring connector problem (bent or corroded pins), improper installation (wrong orientation, not seated properly), etc. Why did you replace it in the first place?

How can you tell if the crankshaft is bent in a 1999 yukon

to successfully test for a bent crank you will have to take it to a engineering shop that is set up to grind cranks as they will have the proper lathe to test it in. If the crank has a main bearing either side of a big end or a set of big ends then the chances of it being bent would be slim. What indications are there that makes you consider it is bent.

What does a spark plug being bent mean?

If the car didn't start after the timing belt replacement, it is highly possible the timing was not reset correctly, causing a valve to be bent by the piston, and pushed into the spark plug.

Need to know how to straighten slightly bent valves 1999 rodeo

You will be sorry to hear that there is no way to straighten bent valves. They need to be replaced with new ones, and refit to the head. This situation makes me worry about the crank bearing process: was the CAUSE of the bearing failure resolved? Was the crank repaired and turned? Was the block measured and issues resolved? and Finally was the bearing clearance measured with plasti-gauge?

Broken crank shaft the mechanic said he wont be able to know if valves are bent until he puts it back together of course he said the valves are bent. How difficult is it to replace valves?

Find another mechanic. you got ripped off. A broken crank does not mean you cant check the valves. Called a leak down test. This engine should have been replaced. And probably still should. Your talking about a $1500.00 job.

When timing a 2000 2.4 dohc chain .I know to line the 1/8 holes on cams. Do i need to turn crank two rounds to get on a compression stroke. What i did was replace waterpump and chain move so when i tried...

you replaced the lifters? why? the engine is out of time, the cam position determines if its on compression stroke or not. you may have bent valves, if not you are lucky. the cams have pins to hold them in time and then the chain is installed with crank on #1 tdc (keyway up). if all is lined up correctly and it doesnt have compression, you have bent the valves. Water pump replacement is not a job for a DIY.

He meant bent valve. you are looking at a head job. sorry but these are interference engines.
In fact I believe it has an overhead cam right? If so then there are no pushrods. Generally all a bent pushrod does is leave the valve closed.

I got stuck paying dealer for new crank pulley not harmonic balancer as mechanic said. I am driving as little as possible until part comes in and can br put on. Hopefully, I will not damage the crank shaft or throw a belt.

Had a cambelt break on a 2003 renault scenic 1.6 16v, replaced valves and head gasket, just need to fit timing belt but having trouble with the cam timing, crank shaft locking tool is fitted...

Its because your pistons on 1&4 are up top that is why your bent valves got bent you are doing exactly the same thing so turn the crank back 15degrees position your cam and reset your crank,it seems to me you may be out of your depth lets hope not or it may be expensive

Winshield wipers stay stright when you turn them off 2002 chevy impala

You need to replace the wiper crank arm that is bolted to the wiper motor. Then you need to bend the tab back up that got bent on the wiper motor bracket that the old crank arm bent. The crank arm has to hit this metal tab so the wipers will park down below the window istead of up.
