HI. Ok, the problem with the crank sensor may be intermittent. I would check the connecting wires at the crank sensor for proper fit and corrosion detail. If the connections to and from the sensor are sound and not corroded, have it tested for proper functions. I do believe that the crank sensor and connecting harness my be faulty. If the fault is intermittently affecting the engine, it will still run, but very sluggishly.

I would like to see the actual code you have extracted. please post, if possible.

Thanks..

2002 taurus 3.0L OHV stalls when hot have replaced IAC,camshaft position sensor,fuel pump and there are no codes on engine stall occurs most often when slowing and turning


If you have to wait to restart its usually a faulty coil or ignition module.
Someone would need to troubleshoot the ignition system when the engine fails to start to proceed. Could be a faulty relay too.

I have a 2002 Ford Taurus and I had my heads and gaskets go bad replaced them seemed to be a pretty simple job but after the installation check engine light came on has rough idle, engine codes were bad...


This is most definatly a grounding issue. Re-Check all grounds. Even check the connections at the PCM. Check for a missing ground ******** the back of the heads. Did you unhook the battery before preforming the tear down? If not you may have fried the PCM.

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located


Usually front bottom of engine block.
Follow your plug wires to the coil packs and module. Then follow the wires on the module and they will lead directly to the crank sensor.
