      • The sensor is mounted in a fixed position in the engine block. The tip of the sensor protrudes into the crankcase at a distance of 0.05 plus or minus 0.02 inch from the crankshaft.
      • A crankshaft adjusting tool may be used to check these rings
      place the tool on the pulley extension surface and rotate the tool around the pulley.
    • If any blade touches the tool, replace the pulley.
  • Inspect the trigger wheel behind the crankshaft pulley and the sensor for damage.
  • If the engine misfires all the time or on acceleration only, test the following components:
    • Engine compression.
    • Spark plugs.
    • Spark plug wires.
    • Ignition coils test for firing voltage with a test spark plug.
    • Crankshaft sensor.
    • Fuel injectors on multiport and sequential fuel injection systems. To remove the crank sensor
  • Disconnect the wiring harness.
  • Unbolt the sensor mounting bolt.
If the crankshaft timing sensor or the camshaft reference sensor is removed, follow this procedure when the sensor is replaced:
  • Thoroughly clean the sensor tip and install a new spacer on the sensor tip. New sensors should be supplied with the spacer installed.

  • Install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring, and tighten the sensor mounting bolt 105 in.lb.
hope this was what you needed.....

Why the motor wont runn after alternator fixed


The computer is not getting a signal from the crank sensor.
A low battery could cause this, but normally it is the sensor or a wiring problem.

I have nissam altima 2005 and it turned off in middle of the road today and then it showed battery sign but it was showing service engine sign from two days. when i went to autozone today then check...


Stay away from autozone. Go to a reputable garage, and tell them if you intend to fix it yourself.For a fdew bucks you can have a real mechanic diagnose it, and be sure you are fixing the correct thing, not just tossing parts at it, as they love you to do at the zone. If the engine was still running when the battery light came on , this sounds like an intermittant charging problem Have your battery and charging system professionally checked. It could also be caused bt the belt slipping, for instance if it was wet, or the steering was held on one of the stops, in a sharp turn. P0335 is indeed a crankshaft sensor code and should be checked and replaced if neccessary.Appears that there is an updated sensor, and it's very hard to plug in. Let me know if I can help furthur.

On my 99 intrepid i canged both cam and crank positioning sensors the check engin light came on agin, with the code p0340. Can it be my wiring.


What does that mean? This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.
Symptoms Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required
