The sensors that are used in this capacity take and interperate mechanical siganls for the top and bottom ends of the engines. The bottom is 2 revolutions as to the top end of 1 revolution and this needs to be interpreted for maximum efficiency, power, and economy. It tells the computer when to fire/pulse. In their most basic sense, they are nothing more than electromagnets that utilize an exciter ring to "charge" the magenetic pulse that is than sent to the computer to be translated and used.

My 1998 Dodge Durango won't start. No spark

check for power at the coil. There should be power anytime the engine is cranking. If there is no power let me know and i'll get you some more info.

If there is power check for pulse on the other wire. If there is pulse than replace the coil.

if there is no pulse I can get you more info on that as well.

2003 ford taurus 3.0 Vulcan cranks strong, you can smell the gas but it won't start. I tried replacing the ignition coil with no results.

It is one of two things. Crank shaft sensor, on timing cover, behind crank pulley. Or the camshaft syncronizer, or the camshaft sensor (sits on top of Camshaft syncronizer) Located on drivers side end of engine, in what used to be the home of the old type distributor.

I have an 1994 98 oldsmobile ...i can be driving and all of a sudden the car will just shut down and soon as i pull over and put it in park it fires right back up and drive like it never happen.. i change...

The crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor both will shut down the vehicle if they are faulty. I would make sure that the crankshaft sensor is the problem first though and not a wiring issue like a bad connection to the sensor or a broken wire to the sensor. As for the camshaft sensor there really is no reason to replace it right now except for the fact that it is right there while you have the car torn down to get to the crank sensor,since there is no code for it right now if its not broke dont fix it nothing wrong with preventitive maintenance.
Good luck

Camshaft sensor replacement

Your camshaft senor is located near your camshaft, on the front of the engine. For most newer cars it will be near the top of the front of the engine. It should have a plug with two wires coming out if it. One thing to consider is that a camshaft (and crankshaft) sensor is nothing but a magnet with a connector on it. There really isn't much that can go wrong with it. Most of the time the problem is a dirty connector and not the sensor. Pull the plug off the sensor, clean it out with a q-tip and some alcohol, and that usually fixes it.
