I am trying to find the location for my crankshaft position sensor on my 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante


Your 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante is a 3.5L MFI SOHC 6cyl engine.
MFI = multi-port fuel injection
SOHC = single overhead camshaft
This answer covers Mitsubishi Diamante1.8L, 2.4L, 3.0L (SOHC and DOHC), 3.5L, and 1997-2000 1.5L Engines.

2.4L engine shown, others similar.

Fig.1 - CKP position and its two mounting bolts

In Fig. 1, the two arrows point to the CKP (crankshaft position sensor) mounting bolts to remove. 2.4L engine shown.

Fig.2 - CKP reluctor removal
am-trying-find-location-crankshaft-vkz3iz4htmqkl2kxsk34hqrj-3-2.jpg
Remove the sensor and slide the reluctor wheel off of the crankshaft-2.4L engine shown.

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove the timing belt.
3. Unplug the sensor connector.
4. Unfasten the two retaining bolts, then remove the CKP sensor from the vehicle.
5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Where is my crankshaft position sensor at on my 3.4 2000 pontiac montana


To me it sounds more like a TPS (throttle positioning sensor) switch has gone bad and is located on the throttle body.

Where exactly is the crankshaft sensor located on a 2000 Pontiac Montana?


There are two of them on this engine. If I remember correctly, one of them is inserted into an aluminum bracket on firewall side of the engine, and senses the harmonic balancer at about the 10 o'clock position. The other one is buried *under* the balancer, and is held in place by two of the screws that mount the timing cover.

Where is the location of crankshaft sensor in VW passat,1995,2,8?


OPERATION
The crankshaft position sensor detects gaps in the sensor ring corresponding to TDC of each cylinder. The sensor uses a permanent magnet, core and coil. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. This in turn varies the voltage signal to the ECM. The ECM uses the signals for ignition timing and fuel synchronization.
TESTING
Audi A4 2.8L
  1. Disconnect the electrical harness connector.
  2. Switch the DMM to its resistance range and connect it between the CKP sensor connector terminals 1 and 2 , using jumper wires from VW 1594 test kit. The DMM should show approximately 1,000 ohms.
  3. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
  4. If the specified value is obtained, connect the DMM between terminal 1 and 3 (GND), then between terminals 2 and 3 (GND). The DMM should show infinite ohms (open).
  5. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
  6. If the specified value is obtained, check the wiring for continuity or short between crankshaft position sensor and ECM, using a wiring diagram.
  7. Connect a VAG 1598/19 test box to the ECM harness connector.
  8. Check the CKP sensor shielding for continuity by connecting a DMM between terminal 3 and engine ground (GND). The DMM should show a maximum of 1 ohm.
  9. Check the wiring for continuity between the CKP sensor connector terminal 1 and the test box socket A9 , then between the CKP sensor connector terminal 2 and test box socket A10 . There should be a maximum of 1 ohm.
  10. If the specified values are not obtained, check and eliminate any short or open circuits in the wiring.
  11. If the wiring is OK, replace ECM.

Passat 2.8L
  1. Disconnect the harness connector from the crankshaft position sensor.
  2. Switch the DMM to its ohms range.
  3. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 of CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
  4. Resistance between terminals 1 and 2 must be 500-700 ohms.
  5. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 , then 1 and 3 of the CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
  6. The resistance must be infinite ohms.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the electrical connector from the sensor.
  2. Remove the crankshaft sensor retaining bolt and remove the sensor.
  3. Replace the O-ring and lightly lubricate it with clean engine oil.
Installation is reverse of removal.

---
To remove the 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.

  • Install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring, and tighten the sensor mounting bolt 105 in.lb.

Look for the sensor on the axis of the crankshaft near either end of the engine.

Good luck on locating this sensor.

No, but the belt may have struck the crankshaft sensor. The sensor is behind the crankshaft pulley. Check the wires going back to the sensor and repair as needed. Let me know if you have more questions.

Where would i find the crank sensor in a 2.4l twin cam motor


the crank sensor is usually located near the crankshaft of the engine, not on the transmission with wires leading to it.

TESTING Fig. 1: Attach suitable jumper wires between the CKP sensor and CKP sensor harness. A DC volt meter can then be attached to the necessary terminals to test the sensor as the engine is being cranked 91114p21.jpg
Typically, when a crankshaft position sensor DTC is set, checking the integrity of the wiring connecting the sensor (using a digital volt meter) to the PCM harness connector is the best way to determine if the sensor is faulty. If the wires all have continuity, and a DTC is set, it is probable that the sensor is faulty. Although a procedure is given here for testing of the crankshaft sensor itself, it is generic, and may not apply to every vehicle. Typically, the crankshaft position sensor harness connector wire leads are labeled. However, it is advisable to use this procedure in conjunction with the wiring diagrams in Section 6 to identify the terminals on the crankshaft sensor before connecting test leads.
  1. Turn the ignition key OFF.
  2. Unplug the sensor electrical harness and check the terminals for corrosion and damage.
  3. Check the sensor wiring harness wires for continuity and repair as necessary.
  4. Attach the sensor harness making sure it is firmly engaged.
  5. Using a Digital Volt Ohm Meter (DVOM) set on the DC scale, backprobe the sensor signal terminal (terminal A) with the positive lead of the meter and backprobe the sensor ground terminal (terminal B) with the negative lead of the meter.
  6. Have an assistant crank the engine and observe the meter.
  7. You should have approximately a 5 volt reference signal pulse. If not the sensor may be defective.

Go to Autozone and they will check your cars trouble codes for free and tell you what part you will need to replace. They are usually right 99% of the time.The crankshaft position sensor located behind the harmonic balancer maybe be bad. There is another crankshaft position sensor located on the engine block above and to the right of the oil filter. Or it could be the power train control module located to the right of the air cleaner box. This information is for the V6 3.4 engine. Buy the repair manual for your Montana and go to the engine performance section. The manual costs about $26.00
