The Crank Sensor -generates a digital square wave pulse,when the engine is cranking and is used to indicate crankshaft position. That signal goes to the PCM (Computer) So-you won't see voltage on it,unless your turning the Ignition Pulse Wheel (Flywheel) It is used for timing,whatever,spark,fuel or however the vehicle is designed.

How are you checking for spark?

Can you use a VOM Meter,if not just tow it to a shop for repair

Wont start. it has injector pulse but no spark


is there power and ground to the coils?

If there is injector pulse than the crank sensor has to be good. Injector pulse and spark are both calculated off from the signal from the crank sensor.

Checking for power and ground to the coils is a good place to start. If that checks out than either there is a wiring issue in between the PCM and the coils or possible the PCM has failed.

I have power to the coil and to the injectors, but no spark to plugs.


No year, make or model. The ECM controls the spark by grounding the coil/s. It uses the crank sensor to determine the spark to cylinder needing fire. No fire would point me to the crank sensor and wiring to it.

Troubleshooting engine


Yes you are heading in right right direction. Check to see if there is spark out of coil. Spark at coil means replace distributor or rotor. No spark at coil replace ignition module or crank sensor good luck. Oh yea crank sensor is cheaper i would try that first if there is spark out of coil.

NO SPARK OUT OF THE COIL


Spark is created by the ignition module and crank shaft sensor remove distributor cap and use a logic probe red led shows positive voltage green shows negative voltage. the crank sensor has two wires with key on touch the leads and find the power side then have someone crank it over logic probe should flash a yellow color or toggle green red (2 bulb model) that shows a good sensor replace module. stays red then replace sensor.

It turns but it wont start,it has gas and power


Pull off the coil ignition cable at the distributor and check for spark coming out of coil when cranking engine over. Use a heavy rag or glove to hold the wire 1/4 inch from a metal ground. Should see a strong blue spark when cranking to verify ignition is good. If no spark, check for battery voltage to coil on the coil primary. If you have current to the coil, suspect a bad coil, ignition module, crank position sensor, or cam position sensor, or pcm. The coil, ignition module, and sensors can be tested before replacing.

No spark, 1988 Toyota Camry 3SFE 4cyl, 5 speed.


there is no crank sensor on this vehicles 2.0L. If you have power to the coil, new coil, cap and rotor try this if not done yet>>>Unplug coil power first....Try pulling off the distributor cap, and make sure the rotor is spinning with the cam...If this fails to spin, inspect the entire distributor assembly. If it passes, Inspect all the power circuit and wiring to the dist assembly, if ok possible ecu. i recommend having a mechanic check it out!! Hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks
