Were is the crank sersor located on the car

The crankshaft position sensor on the Cady DeVille is located behind the crankshaft pulley. To replace follow these instructions:
  • Disconnect the wiring harness connector from the crankshaft position sensor by pulling the tangs on the side of the connector away from the plug and pulling the plug off the sensor.

  • Unbolt the sensor's retaining bolt, using the appropriate socket. Remove the sensor and its O-ring from the block.

  • Clean the mating surface on the block with a rag. Ensure that the new O-ring is on the new sensor. Install the sensor and tighten the retaining bolt firmly. Do not over-tighten the bolt, as you will damage the sensor.

  • Plug in the wiring harness connector, ensuring that it snaps into place.

    Where is the camshaft position sensor located on a 2003 dodge intrepid?

    Down on front bottom of engine block. Follow the spark plug wires to coil packs and ignition module. Then there will be two or three more wires that run from there down to the crankshaft position sensor.

    My car got FS engine. it cranks but no spark on plugs.replaced another distributor still got same is on connector.

    1. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor wire harness plug.
    2. Connect an ohmmeter to the sensor terminals A and B and measure the resistance. Fig. 1: Crankshaft position sensor connector terminals. Measure the resistance across the A and B terminals 89544g27.gif
      Fig. 2: Measure the air gap between the crankshaft position sensor and the crankshaft pulley 89544g28.gif

    3. The reading should be 520–580 ohms at 68°F (20°C).
    4. If not as specified, replace the sensor.
    5. Measure the air gap of the sensor between the crankshaft pulley and the sensor.
    6. Proper air gap should be 0.040–0.080 in. (1–2 mm).
    7. If not as specified, inspect the crankshaft pulley and/or replace the sensor.

    I needto know how to replace a Crankshaft postion sensor A circuit

        • 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.
        • A crankshaft adjusting tool may be used to check these rings
        place the tool on the pulley extension surface and rotate the tool around the pulley.
      • If any blade touches the tool, replace the pulley.
    • Inspect the trigger wheel behind the crankshaft pulley and the sensor for damage.
    • If the engine misfires all the time or on acceleration only, test the following components:
      • Engine compression.
      • Spark plugs.
      • Spark plug wires.
      • Ignition coils test for firing voltage with a test spark plug.
      • Crankshaft sensor.
      • Fuel injectors on multiport and sequential fuel injection systems. To remove the crank sensor
    • Disconnect the wiring harness.
    • Unbolt the sensor mounting bolt.
    If the crankshaft timing sensor or the camshaft reference sensor is removed, follow this procedure when the sensor is replaced:
    • Thoroughly clean the sensor tip and install a new spacer on the sensor tip. New sensors should be supplied with the spacer installed.
    fr_24.15.gifSpacer on crankshaft timing sensor and camshaft position sensor.
    • Install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring, and tighten the sensor mounting bolt 105
    hope this was what you needed.....

    You mean the crankshaft position sensor. Just follow your spark plug wires to the coil packs and ignition module. Then there will be two wires from ignition module to crankshaft position sensor which is in lower part of the engine block

    2000 grand jeep cherokee dies while slowing down

    Its not unusual for the crankshaft sensor to intermittanly fail. The crank sensors are not real expensive and are not extremely hard to change.
    The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) is mounted into the engine block above the starter motor. Engine speed and crankshaft position are provided through the crankshaft position sensor. The sensor generates pulses that are the input sent to the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM interprets the sensor input to determine the crankshaft position. The PCM then uses this position, along with other inputs, to determine injector sequence and ignition timing. The sensor is a Hall effect device combined with an internal magnet. It is also sensitive to steel within a certain distance from it.
    Below is a pic of the sensor location.
    Good luck.
