This sensor is integral to the distributor. it is a common failure, and requires that the whole distributor be replaced. before replacing the distributor, make sure all the connectors at the distributor are secured and clean. volkswagen refers to this sensor as a "hall" sensor. good luck!

2003 VW Jetta Gl 2.0 170k mi, brand new crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position, and alternator put in last week; today died on the freeway, no warning lights came on and it has full a tank of gas....


Given the mileage and work done, it's most likely the magnet in the harmonic balancer has come loose and those parts were mistakenly replaced. It's very common in high mileage vehicles as with the sensor failure and most times it is overlooked because the extra labor involved in further teardown would be unjustified if a new part apparently fixes it.

Where is the location of crankshaft sensor in VW passat,1995,2,8?


OPERATION
The crankshaft position sensor detects gaps in the sensor ring corresponding to TDC of each cylinder. The sensor uses a permanent magnet, core and coil. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. This in turn varies the voltage signal to the ECM. The ECM uses the signals for ignition timing and fuel synchronization.
TESTING
Audi A4 2.8L
  1. Disconnect the electrical harness connector.
  2. Switch the DMM to its resistance range and connect it between the CKP sensor connector terminals 1 and 2 , using jumper wires from VW 1594 test kit. The DMM should show approximately 1,000 ohms.
  3. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
  4. If the specified value is obtained, connect the DMM between terminal 1 and 3 (GND), then between terminals 2 and 3 (GND). The DMM should show infinite ohms (open).
  5. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
  6. If the specified value is obtained, check the wiring for continuity or short between crankshaft position sensor and ECM, using a wiring diagram.
  7. Connect a VAG 1598/19 test box to the ECM harness connector.
  8. Check the CKP sensor shielding for continuity by connecting a DMM between terminal 3 and engine ground (GND). The DMM should show a maximum of 1 ohm.
  9. Check the wiring for continuity between the CKP sensor connector terminal 1 and the test box socket A9 , then between the CKP sensor connector terminal 2 and test box socket A10 . There should be a maximum of 1 ohm.
  10. If the specified values are not obtained, check and eliminate any short or open circuits in the wiring.
  11. If the wiring is OK, replace ECM.

Passat 2.8L
  1. Disconnect the harness connector from the crankshaft position sensor.
  2. Switch the DMM to its ohms range.
  3. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 of CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
  4. Resistance between terminals 1 and 2 must be 500-700 ohms.
  5. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 , then 1 and 3 of the CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
  6. The resistance must be infinite ohms.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the electrical connector from the sensor.
  2. Remove the crankshaft sensor retaining bolt and remove the sensor.
  3. Replace the O-ring and lightly lubricate it with clean engine oil.
Installation is reverse of removal.

---
To remove the 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.

Spacer on crankshaft timing sensor and camshaft position sensor.

  • Install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring, and tighten the sensor mounting bolt 105 in.lb.
---
Look for the sensor on the axis of the crankshaft near either end of the engine.

Good luck on locating this sensor.

Where is the cam shaft sensor in a 1996 jetta?


1996 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L SFI 4cyl
The Camshaft Position Sensor is located under hood, center, upper engine area, driver side of engine block, mounted in distributor.

This sensor performs the same function as a crankshaft position sensor; providing a signal to the ECM regarding the position of the crankshaft.

Although the camshaft position sensor is an essential input for the ECM to determine ignition timing, information on testing the sensor is located in of this guide (autozone.com / free register).

Hope help you; remember rated this help. Good luck.
