The crank shaft sensor will be fitted over the front crankshaft pulley or where it can read the electronic signals generated from the flywheel....The way it works is to receive a magnetically generated signal which is transmitted to the management computer system....It basically indicates when the piston is at the ignition point of the engines cycle...As we're dealing with a four stroke engine, remember that the crankshaft makes four revolutions to two of the camshaft....The cam will give its own signal via its own sensor....Both are used to control the spark and firing of the plugs in the correct sequence and at the correct time....If the scan tool said the crank sensor I'd think that's the fault and stick to that....

How to install the cam shaft had to remove to put head bolts in my 2002 pt crusier


Get a Chiltons/Haynes manual that covers the year/make/model or your car. It has entire section on rebuilding the engine and will give you torque specs, camshaft R/R, etc. Hmmm Having to take a camshaft out to put in head bolts does not seem to be one of Chrysler's better ideas.

On this type of vehicles' "Diamler-Chrysler" for some reason the Crank and Cam sensor go bad at the same time but it will still tell you its either one or the other, if you are still getting the Cam sensor trouble code, try replacing the Crank Shaft Position Sensor, I just had a Dodge vehicle with the same problem but in reverse, it kept saying Crank Sensor but it turned out it was the Cam Sensor. Good Luck.

I need to know where the Cam Shaft sensor is for my 2005 PT Cruiser is. My car is sputtering and the car is not starting when the switch is turn on.


the cam sensor is near the battery. it is on the end of the cylinder head rear. you should have a code po340 if the cam sensor is bad. get someone to scan it before replacing the sensor . check under the car for a wire rubbing on the cv shaft that goes to the crank sensor.

check your harness wire. Check if the wire coating is brittle then you have to change it. The original harness has a lifespan so what we did is to replace the wirings one by one with a japanese made wires that wont get brittle. More durable
