3.8l. Where is crankshaft position sensor located?

Here is a drawing and description of the location:

25974439-55j43zfoeuhdrtvntybmbhee-3-0.gif he CKP sensor, located on the engine front cover near the crankshaft pulley, is used to determine crankshaft position and crankshaft rpm. The sensor is a magnetic reluctance type which senses the passing of teeth on a tone wheel because the teeth disrupt the magnetic field of the sensor. This disruption creates a voltage fluctuation, which is monitored by the PCM.

How can you tell which crankcase sensor on my truck is bad

What engine ? 2.9 - 3.7 - 4.8 - 5.3 L An do you mean- crankshaft position (CKP) sensor ? My GM service info shows only one on each of these engines ! What kind of problem are you having ? A no start - no spark ?

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on

The CKP sensor, located on the back of the engine, runs off the flywheel/driveplate and provides the ECM with crankshaft position and engine speed. The sensor is a Hall effect type that senses the passing of teeth on a flywheel/driveplate, because the teeth disrupt the magnetic field of the sensor. This disruption creates a pulse generation, which is monitored by the ECM.,,,

Hello, I need some help. I have a 1996 Honda Civic ex (automatic) D16y8 VTEC engine. Today I had a mechanic replace distributor with a new one (not rebuilt) from an auto parts store. The mechanic did not...

Yes, the ignition timing could be off enough to cause the symptoms and the check engine light.
I would take it back to the shop and tell them to set base timing, clear the code, and refund you the cost of the knock sensor and labor.

On my 2006 f150 ford what the purpose of a cam aensor and how to tell if it bad

Hi there:
The camshaft sensor is located in the hood, beside the engine. However, it isn't always easy to find it. This is because the exact position of the camshaft sensor depends on the car brand. That said; whichever the car, you'll find the camshaft sensor in either one of three locations: by the side of the engine block, behind the cylinder head, or in the car's lifter valley.

The camshaft sensor is a small, but significant, magnetic device. It gathers and sends information about the car's camshaft speed (and as a result the position of each piston) to the car's electronic control module. This information is received by the computer, which then uses this data to further calculate the time of ignition and the timing of fuel injection required by the engine. This information is vital for engine function.

At times, either due to accidents or due to wear and tear, the camshaft sensor can weaken. In the case of a camshaft sensor failure, the weak or disrupted signal is interpreted by the computer as a problem, and this affects the proper running of the vehicle. A failing camshaft sensor can be identified based on any one of the 3 following symptoms.

1. "Check Engine" Light
The first symptom of a failing camshaft sensor manifests as a warning from the car's control module. As the camshaft sensor fails, the computer sends the driver a warning sign via the "check engine" light on the cars dashboard. When the check engine light first comes on, the driver has enough time to service the car and replace all faulty parts, including the failing camshaft sensor. However, if you ignore this flashing light for a considerable time, it could later lead to severe engine trouble.

2. Disrupted Driving
Another symptom of a failing camshaft sensor is experiencing constant disruption while driving. If you are experiencing symptoms like frequent stalling, poor idling of the car at 500 to 600 rpms, a massive drop in the rpms slowing down the car to a crawl, a noticeable drop in engine power, poor mileage, abnormal acceleration activity, frequent stumbling, etc., it probably means you have a failing camshaft sensor that needs immediate attention. If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is best to seek a mechanic before the situation gets worse and the car gives up, refusing to start at all.

3. Ignition Trouble
If you ignore all of the above symptoms, you end up with one that really can't be ignored-no ignition. Remember, as the sensor begins to weaken, so does the signal it transmits to the cars computerized control station. If you let the problem carry on for too long, the engine will suffer from a "no spark" situation. Once the signal switches off, so will your engine, thereby stranding you. Thus, it is best not to let your car get to this stage.

Serpentine belt broke and replaced. Now engine will turn over but not start.

Hello Melissa.

When the belt broke it most likely damaged the crankshaft position sensor.
The sensor is mounted at the harmonic balancer pulley.
This sensor sends a signal to the ignition to tell it when to fire the spark plugs. Without this signal the spark will not take place and your engine will not start.
It will likely need replacement
If you could tell me which engine came in your Cougar I will be able to give you more specific information.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My cruise light is blinking on and off, although cruise is not on, and my check engine and traction control warning lights are illuminated. I just had brakes worked on last week, could they have done...

well the cruise light is blinking probably becuase its telling you its notworking due to the fact the abs/traction lights are on,youre saying you just got a brake job done, i would guess either they unplugged the abs sensor to gain acess to the brakes or the sensor for the abs got dirty when they disrupted the brakes by removeing them to do the brake job, first thing i would do is peek at each wheel and see if the abs sensors are plugged in, if they are the next thing i would do , is remove each of the front sensors and clean them with brake clean or something like that,,the sensors are little magnets and sometimes when working in that area rust and dust and stuff gets on them and interupts the signal and casues all the problems you have list,,,,hope that helps,,,or take it back to where you got the brakes done and tell them about it and they should look at it and maybe fix it for free ,,,

Ford Focus only two years old, engine shudders alot on startup, engine light came on and then lost power 100 yards down the road

Taking a look at your plugs can tell you alot, check spark,timing and fuel. It can be many things.

My VS COMMODORE needs attention when i accellerate

The timing of the engine has gone haywire. Try to align the cam shaft notches of corresponding pulley and set the tensional bolt back to same position, before removal of the belt, The alignment has to be perfect.Disruption of timing of firing other the engine. Higher the rev, the faulty the engine will not be able to take up the load....sodeep
