Question about 2006 Nissan Altima
The crankshaft position sensor is located at right hand side of rear eng block by bell housing. Its easy to see by removing top eng cover look down thru the gap between intake manifold ports.
The sensor is on the timing cover by the crankshaft. and is only $20 bucks. And for the crank pulley.The crank pulley on your Altima is on the passenger side. Jack up the car and remove the passenger side tire and inner fenderwell and you will see it.
Remove the (4) allen head bolts that hold the plastic engine cover. Remove the air tube that connects the throttle chamber to air filter box. Pull off the valve cover breather hose with the air tube. Now place a drop light under the two rubber heater hoses (at the firewall on the drivers hand side), shining the light forward towards the back side of the block (below the intake runners). To see the crankshaft sensor and connector, look between the valve cover and the throttle chambers (intake runners) on the drivers side, look straight down toward the ground… look for the sensor with a black wire connector with a green tab on the side, held to the engine block with a gold colored 10mm hex headed bolt. You will need to view the sensor from this position as you are following the steps below to remove and install the crank sensor. check fig:--
