The crank sensor tell the computer were the engines crankshaft is positioned so it can make a spark and squirt fuel at the right time.its mounted in the bell housing near the top of the trans. its fairly east to change.there is also a cam sensor under the dist cap, real easy to change, both will give you the same problem [no start] if bad.

Where is the crank shaft positing sensor hookup in the wiring harness of a 94 dodge ram 360


It is hard to get to - the sensor is at the back of the engine mounted through the transmission bell housing. The connector should be within 6 to 8 inches from the sensor. The sensor reads a sensor ring on the flywheel/flexplate.

Pcm?


PCM= Powertrain Control Module. It is the brains of the car, it reads the sensor in put from all sensors including the cam shaft position sensor

Starting issues


Yes, the crank shaft position sensor tells the engine when to send fuel and spark to the cylinders in conjunction with the camshaft position sensor. If the crank sensor isn't working properly, the engine doesn't know when do do anything. Depending on what the other codes where, I'd highly suspect the CPS. It's not terribly hard to get at nor expensive of a part, but you will need a diagnostic scanner capable of doing a Crankshaft Learn procedure.

I have 2008 Dodge Caliber and the engine light came on with codes P0017 Crank Shaft Position Cam Shaft Position Correlation - Bank 1 Sensor B can you tell me what this means as i cannot afford to...


Sounds like your crank sensor or cam sensor is malfunctioning. Their positions are not correlating which means they are not in perfect alignment according to the computer. I don't think the parts are very expensive and probably not that hard to replace. I replaced both on my 99 Ford Explorer, and I don't recall it that difficult. Anyway, hope this helps.

Why wont my 95jeep grand cherokee6cyl turnover when cranking? I have gas powerand at times when driving it would shut-off why is this happening


Jeeps have a known problem of a crank shaft position sensor going bad. It's a sensor that works off rotation of the crank. to know where and what position it's in. The part is about $55 and it's located by the front of the transmission where it meets the engine block. Very easy to change. I've changed a few on Jeeps and they had the same problem with the Jeep shutting down going down the road. After a few days to 2 weeks it will go completely out and leave you stranded. So I" advise to get it fixed ASAP. "Crank Shaft Position Sensor"

I would like to know if the cam sensor and the crank shaft sensor are one of the same or two different items


They are two different items. The cam sensor reports the position of the cam shaft(s) which operate the valves. The crank shaft sensor reports the position of the crank shaft, ie the position of the pistons.

My alternator belt broke i fixd it now my car wont start it cranks but sounds funny


I am not sure where the crank position sensor is on your car but when the alternator belt broke on my Buick it trashed the crank sensor that is located next to the crank shaft pulley. The computer needs the crank senor to know the position of the crank shaft. If the sensor is bad the car will not start.
