You will have to disconnect the wire harness, then remove the cir-clip, and unscrew sensor very carefully and straight. Go to www.autozone.com and register for free full online repair manual with everything you could need for this car.

1996 jaguar wont start replaced harmonic balancer


Check the crankshaft position sensor, it's on a small bracket on the front of the Aj6 engine, you may have disturbed it or your new balancer may be a different diameter and the gap between the pulley and the sensor is incorrect or the 1996 sensor may have a different position to the 2000. This sensor controls the ignition timing.

Operation

Specific to:
Ford Taurus 2008-2009
Mercury Sable 2008-2009
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor is a permanent magnet output coil device that monitors the speed and position of the crankshaft. A reluctor is attached directly to the crankshaft, and is used to generate a constant signal as it passes the CKP sensor magnetic coil. The CKP Sensor utilizes system voltage (12 volts DC), or reference voltage (5 volts DC) to generate a digital output signal to the PCM that is based upon a 0.5 volt AC reference. The alternating magnetic field is used by the sensor output electronics to produce a digital pulse. The CKP sensor returns a digital ON/OFF signal pulse during each revolution of the crankshaft, with a momentary signal interrupt for the top dead center (TDC) position of the #1 cylinder. The Pulse Width Modulation pattern is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to calculate ignition timing, fuel injector timing, misfire diagnostics, and the tachometer display

The Camshaft Position Sensor is located under hood, center, upper engine area, driver side of engine block, mounted in distributor.

This sensor performs the same function as a crankshaft position sensor; providing a signal to the ECM regarding the position of the crankshaft.

Although the camshaft position sensor is an essential input for the ECM to determine ignition timing, information on testing the sensor is located in of this guide (autozone.com / free register).
