Were is the crankshaft sensor located at on 96 neon

  • It is located on the firewall side of the engine block, passenger side, under the power steering pump. Unplug the electrical connector on the crankshaft sensor by lifting the plastic lock tab and pulling it off.
  • 2Remove the 10 mm bolt that secures the sensor to the block, using a socket. The bolt is in the hold down bracket. Twist the sensor to ease removal.
  • 3Insert the new sensor after checking to make sure that the O-ring is installed to prevent oil leaks and the spacer that comes with the sensor did not fall off. Insert the sensor and give it a little twisting motion as it is installed. Align the hole in the hold down bracket and insert the 10 mm bolt and tighten with a socket. Plug in the electrical connector.

    96 neon starts but when giving gas motor bogs down like its receiving no fuel. Replaced the crank sensor fuel pump and fuel filter

    Sounds like the camshaft is out of sync with the crankshaft.

    Neons have a real problem with camshaft timing belt sprocket. The pin that aligns it to the camshaft can shear off and then the sprocket can slip so the belt is out of time. If it slips enough, you can bend the valves and then the engine is damaged. It won't necessarily set a code when this happens. If you check the belt timing it will appear to be just fine because the sprocket and crank are still in sync, but the camshaft is out of sync. Pull all the plugs and check compression with a gauge from the auto parts store. If it's low, then that might be it...Normal is 175PSI - 225PSI. OR, your timing belt may have slipped a tooth or two, in which case you can just look through the hole in the timing belt cover with the engine at Top Dead Center. The timing mark should be lined up with the cross hairs on the cover.

    2000 dodge neon won't start. Makes clicking sound and trip fuse indicator is lit on the display panel. Changed the battery terminal. Battery indicator also lights up on the display panel.

    look everyone !!! i am not the only one who has this problem , but I found the answer on my own.... iI hope this can help others . If you have to replace a neon engine you must do these thing if you want it to start.
    Lower vehicle and perform camshaft and
    crankshaft timing relearn procedure as follows:
    ² Connect the DRB scan tool to the data link
    (diagnostic) connector. This connector is located in
    the passenger compartment; at the lower edge of
    instrument panel; near the steering column.
    ² Turn the ignition switch on and access the “miscellaneous”
    ² Select “re-learn cam/crank” option and follow
    directions on DRB screen

    Most people don't have access to this scanner <but it must be done> I used a snap-on cost 3000 but have the reset feature

    Thanks you all for your help.
