SOURCE: crank shaft sensor

I have 10 years experience in a Nissan dealership and I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Crankshaft Position Sensor is NOT located next tp the crank pulley... it is rather at the other end of the engine near where the transmission bellhousing bolts to the engine block. It is on the side toward the firewall near the bottom. Even if you can get the vehicle on a lift and get under it, you can't really see it... It's more of a feel thing... There was a campaign (recall) on these engines to replace Crank Position and also Cam Postion sensors. Check with your dealer- the campaign might be open. You will need your VIN number when you call.

The sensor is mounted in a fixed position in the engine block. The tip of the sensor protrudes into the crankcase at a distance of 0.05 plus or minus 0.02 inch from the crankshaft.

SOURCE: crank shaft sensor? is this the same as cam shaft

no each one has its own job,
crank sensor is counting crank shaft rpms
cam sensor is counting cam shaft rpms
is there any lights coming on just as this is happening?
i think you should have the fuel pressure checked when it dies out,you need at least 50psi at fuel rail

The coils are fired by the ECM, check all the wires to the ECM from the coils and make sure the signal is getting through and you don't have a wiring issue at the engine firewall connector on the driver side firewall.

double posted. see other post.
you need to post what you had and and what you put in.
the 1995 has no crank sensor. sorry.
back one post and tell car getting fixed,
year and engine, and donor year and engines.

my wild guess, is new engine is 1995 but is it 8v or 16valves.
you must match the valves.!!~
the 8v is a one injector engine
the 16valve is 4 injectors ,and totally different ECU and wiring.

please id both engines.
is your car newer than the engine?
weve done this many times.

here is G16b for G16b drop. 1997. same for same
if had 95 G16b going to 97
id have swapped pans, oil pump and crank sensor.
onto new engine.

Where is crank shaft sensor located

old post.
There are many Vitara engines, what size is yours.?
the noid lamp will not work VR crank sensors.
and many Halls will fail that test too, (a 10,000 ohm pull up stops that)
the noid suck big time current. (if your NOID is LED, then yes it works on most HALL sensors and never VR type.
the VR type has only 2 wire. the Hall has 3 or 4 wire (power)
the G16 motor uses hall sensors and creates a nice square wave. any DSO can see that signal.

why not say why you suspect this sensor.
and the car still starts with a Dead CKP on this G16 motor.!
The CKP only makes "ECU misfire work, detection"
the 1995 had no such sensor. and runs.
if the car will not start, then its not the CKP it\'s the CMP sensor
(dead spark) (no spark? the ECU cuts all FUEL)
the cam or DISSY sensor inside it is CMP.
this CMP dead, causes NO Spark , no start and No fuel.

the crank CKP sensor on some suz, are not hall but just a VR coil
and you need scope or other very special tool (mag) to test it.
on all 1999 here, our Scan tools tells you which is bad.
no scan tool? P0340, 355, cranking or running.

I post this to show that , it\'s best to post simptoms first
then ask how to find out why.
the first step is the CEL lamp. (what it does and the scan tool facts)
or post here.

1995 chevy caprice classic wiring for crank sinsor

Yup! I just bet you ARE having problems trying to locate the wiring for the crank sensor.

1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic is only equipped with one of two engines:
4.3L (VIN Code "W")
5.3L (VIN Code "P"

of these engines were equipped with a crankshaft position sensor.

Car Misses after replacing the coils and spark plugs

Has the service engine light come on? If so, have the codes pulled and it will narrow down the cylinder that is causing the problem.
If no service engine light, have you narrowed it down to one cylinder or is it random.
Let me know and we will go from there.
