Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

Does a faulty crank sensor set a code on a 2001Silverado

Does a faulty crank sensor set a code on a 2001 Silverado 8.1 or can it be faulty without setting a code? Truck quits during highway speeds and low speeds including coming to a stop at an intersection. Sometimes after cutting out at highway speeds during coasting it will restart as you intermittently step on the accelerator. Ignition has to be off for about a minute before it will restart. Sometimes does not start after sitting also. Can take up to an hour before it will restart. Thanks.

It should set a diagnostic fault code, but if it does not then take out the sensor and inspect for a crack in it or motor oil in the electrical plug connector which indicates a faulty sensor.

How to replace crankshaft sensor 2001 intrepid


crank sensor is held to the motor with one bolt. disconnect the plug and remove bolt then sensor. note that Chrysler computers at that time would set codes for the opposite sensor meaning it could be the cam sensor that is faulty.

If you're finding it difficult to service/repair your car, get one of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all. Plus I know a website that has very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.

Did you verify the sensors were faulty before you replaced them ? Code 1345 means the signal from each sensor is not in sync with the other. That means one sensor signal is out of sync, or there is a problem with the timing chain.
Codes 171 and 174 deal with the issue of the fuel system being too lean on both banks or heads. You could have compression or fuel problems that would cause those codes.
A mechanic would use a scanner to monitor data from the sensors and try to figure out whats going on.

Well, code 336 is for a problem with the crank sensor, and code 171 is for fuel system too lean bank one which is the side with cylinder one. Since you have checked fuel pressure and I will assume fuel volume is good, the crank sensor or circuit could be at fault.

it should but recheck ur wires and plugs first a bad plug or wire can cause a knock ping problem and set off sensor also check the knock sensor connections at rear of engine----- the knock sensors for the 8 cyl are located under the intake manifold so its labor intensive to replace the sensor

Looking for the location of the crank position sensor and the knock sensor for a 2001 chevrolet silverado with a 4.8 8cylinder engine


Crank sensor; right (pass.) side of block above the starter. You may have to remove the starter to remove the crank sensor.

Knock sensor: There may be 2, a front and a rear. Both would be UNDER the intake manifold on top of the engine block one behind the other about 8 inches or so apart. The manifold and associated item may or may not need to be removed to access the sensors.

2002 Chevy Silverado, crank sensor installed. can't start truck.


After installing a new crank sensor, a Tech 2 will need to be hooked up in order to complete what is called a relearn procedure on the new crank sensor. Until this is done, your truck's ECM is unable to determine when cylinder #1 is at TDC and electronic timing is unable to be performed. Need to tow to GM dealership for this proceedure.
