Question about 2003 Nissan Altima
Today the guy at the auto parts store hooked it up to a computer and
sold me the recommended dealer parts ( a CKP-crankshaft position sensor
and vehicle speed sensor).
OK the problem is the CKP and no you dont want to do it yourself, it is a hassle. take the dummy cover off the motor, leaning over the engine take your right hand and basically hug the engine, down on the bottom just before the trans housing is a green and black connector. press the green connector (in) pull off the connector, now try to get a 10mm small ratchet down ther loosen the bolt (not easy)
take out bolt.
put the connector back on the sensor, twist and pull till it comes out.
the reson for putting it back on is nissan put the connector in the way of the 10mm bolt, you cannot pull it out withthe connector off.
the new sensor is a different updated design, its backwards,
when it goes back in the connector will be turned the opposit direction.
on a 1 -10 scale this is a 10 on the loss of patience a true 6 packer
