Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental
Will crank but not star, fuel system is working. Parked the car Friday, it was running fine, went to start it on monday and all it would to is crank but not start.
Crank sensor may be bad.
Crankshaft Position Sensor
Fig. 1: The CKP sensor trigger wheel rides on the front of the crankshaft. The missing tooth creates a fluctuation of voltage in the sensor
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is a variable reluctance sensor that uses a trigger wheel to induce voltage. The CKP sensor is a fixed magnetic sensor mounted to the engine block and monitors the trigger or "pulse" wheel that is attached to the crank pulley/damper. As the pulse wheel rotates by the CKP sensor, teeth on the pulse wheel induce voltage inside the sensor through magnetism. The pulse wheel has a missing tooth that changes the reading of the sensor. This is used for the Cylinder Identification (CID) function to properly monitor and adjust engine timing by locating the number 1 cylinder. The voltage created by the CKP sensor is alternating current (A/C). This voltage reading is sent to the PCM, it is used to determine engine RPM, engine timing, and is used to fire the ignition coils.
