It would definitely keep the ignition from firing if it was bad. The computer would think it isn't turning over and the fuel pump won't feed an engine that isn't turning over either.

SOURCE: my car is not getting fire to the crankshaft

Fire on the Sensor? Yes this is a problem. Take the vehicle into the mechanic and have the engine repaired before it becomes an even larger problem.

SOURCE: changed the crankshaft sensor an still no fire

Did you check to see if you are getting voltage to the coil ?
I would check for trouble codes in the computer and the circuits to the coil first. Could be the EEC relay.

SOURCE: Why does the crankshaft sensor not get any fire on a 1995 ford windstar?

It's not supposed to get "fire" to it. It is a sensor that tells the ECM or PCM the position of the crankshaft so proper timing is given by the ECM (computer)

I have an 2001 GMC sonoma that will not start. The engine is getting gas, fire, air, and the compression is fine. The timing mark on crank lines up. What could be the problem.

you may want to check to see if this engine has a crankshaft position sensor, that tells the computer when to fire the distributor to the right wire. It might be the ecm itself. The best way to see if it is getting fire is to use a test light and while someone cranks the engine check the number one plug wire for fire. If there is no fire to the wire it can be a faulty ignition module in the distributor , ecm, crankshaft position sensor, bad wire bad cap bad coil. Go through process of ilimination

97' GMC Yukon is not getting fuel

Oil Pressure sensor (behind Distributor), could also be the plug to the fuel pump itself. (pump is in the tank) they tend to get hot and short the fuel pump out even when new. Could also be the fuel solenoid. (cube in fuse box under the hood on left side)

Engine won't start ;got gas & cranks good; no

This may be caused by no crankshaft position reference .If you have a scan tool watch to see if you have a crank signal...if yes Its possibly due to a faulty Ignition module this controls injector firing and spark firing...Note the crankshaft position sensor is a hall effect sensor and can be checked with a voltmeter on the lowest setting on ac also they were common for hitting the reluctor wheel on the backside of the crankshaft vibration dampener causing the circut to go open..also allignment is critical on the sensor and the sensors usually end up being siezed when adjusment is required....hope this helps and good luck

The motor turns over real good but want fire and you can smell gas I believe its getting fuel but want fire what could be my problem? the truck only has 39000 miles but it has been sitting for a while but...

Could be a faulty sensor, but check engine light would come on,
I would guess the coil packs, module or most likely you may have faulty Crankshaft Position Sensor.

Replaced the crankshaft sensor and still won't run

Check to see if you are getting fire from one of the spark plugs and if you are getting fire, check to see if you are getting gas.
