Where is crankshaft position sensor located 1996 gmc sierra 1500

The crankshaft position sensor is located on the right-side (passenger side) of the engine. At the rear of the engine, behind the starter. You need to remove the starter to remove the crank sensor. Remember to disconnect the battery first. The starter can short against the cross member.

Tengo una gmc la sierra 1500 5.7 vortec ano 1997 le acavo de reparar el motor pero no la puedo poner a tiempo

Clean off the crankshaft pulley at the front of the engine and put some paint on the timing marks. Start the car and turn off any accessories such as climate control, lights and the radio. Start the engine until it warms up.

Connect the timing light to the battery and then to the number one ignition wire. Locate the assembly line diagnostic link also called an ALDL and use a jump wire to connect the diagnostic terminal "B" to the ground terminal marked "A". The ALDL is located under the left side of the instrument panel. Not all models of the GMC Sierra have an ALDL.

  • Point the timing light at the crankshaft pulley to verify the need for adjustment. Adjust the timing by loosening the distributor mounting bolts and turning the distributor until the crankshaft timing mark lines up with the middle line of the timing light

  • Tighten the distributor mounting bolts and recheck the timing. Remove the jumper wire from the ALDL with the engine running. Turn the engine off and remove the tachometer and timing light. Reconnect the number one ignition wire.

    I'm getting code 0016 and 0301 on my 2005 gmc sierra pickup, vortec 4.3 v6. Won't start.I've had those codes for several months, but was too busy to get it fixed, with occasional rough starting or poor...

    P0016 Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation
    Replace the Crankshaft position sensor, it's located on the passenger side by the harmonic balance in the front of the engine. Inspect the wire harness and make sure you also buy a can of brake cleaner to clean all the dirt from that area since the sensor is magnetic and will pick up any metallic dirt and will cause faulty reading to your ECM.

    P0301 is an indication to a missfire to cylinder #1 which is most likly related to the crankshaft sensor being bad.

    Replace the Crank sensor first and it take about 20 min from start to finish. Good luck and keep me posted.

    Where is the distributor located on a 1999 5.3L chevy vortec engine

    There is no distributor. Firing is controlled by the computer which gets signals from crankshaft position sensor and camshaft position sensor for firing and timing.

    On the 1999 - 2000 5.7 vortec engines the distributor gears wear causing the timing to change 2 or more degrees. The ecm is designed to shut down at 2 or more degreedifference. This is in a GM bulletin that recommends replacement at 160k miles. Mine went out at 150k miles. Very similar driving symtoms until it quit running. Both cam sensor codes were set on mine though, not the crank sensor.
