There are no definitive test that I know of but you can have a scanner put on the engine to see what codes are present and if its bad then you will told of such i guessing you are having trouble starting your car. if this is the case then id say if you can get your vehicle over to auto-zone they will put it on the scanner for free. there are a million and 1 things that can prevent the car from starting hope this helps you some.

My crankshaft sensor went bad and my O8 infiniti G35X what does that mean when it goes bad is that a big problem I will have to get fixed soon?

when a crank sensor goes bad it can make the motor not run right or shut down this tells the ecm the postion of the crank and works in junction with the cam postion sensor as well as if the crank sensor has a crack in it it could over heat the sensor and shut down the motor. they are usually in expesive to purchase a crank sensor and fairly simple to change

Where do you find a speed sensor on a 1999 ford tauras

Hi, the vehicle speed sensor is located on the rear, left hand side of the engine as you stand in front of the car looking at the motor. When you look at the back of the engine , under the exhaust manifold , there is a small heat shield that you can pull off [it is spring clipped on the back, so you can pull it off without damaging it] and there it is.
It's hard to see the sensor from the left side ,I had to place a light by the exhaust , then look at it from the right hand side of the car. I removed it by working from the right side stretching over, the only way I could see it and get to it.

Jeep want start

Check to see if you have a spark. If no spark there is a good chance it is the crank angle sensor. It is located on the right hand side of the bell housing towards the top when standing at the front of the car. Trace the lead up and you see a connector at the back of the valve cover. Try disconnecting the plug and put it back...Sometimes this is acts as a tempory fix to get you home.

Try turning the key to the on postion-not crank, just to he postion right before cranking. leave it in that postion for 15 min, Do this three and after the third time go ahead an try to start it. Hopefully this will reset your security for you.

1997 town car will not start

Make sure that check engine light comes on when you turn the key to the on postion,then while cranking it should go out,then while cranking after a few seconds it should come back on. If it does not then PCM is not seeing a signal from the crankshaft postion sensor.
This sensor is located on the front passenger side of motor at the crankshaft pulley.You can disconnecting harness and clean it and reconnect it and see if it cranks. If not replace it.
