Question about 2000 Nissan Frontier

1 Answer

2000 nissan frontier 6cyl 3.3l will not start. pretty sure it is either the crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor. since the truck wont start and I dont have an obd scanner I can't narrow it down between those two parts. I bought a CKPS since it was only 20$ but I can not locate where the sensor is.... does anyone know where it is? Also, is it true if its the CMPS, i would need to replace the whole distributor? Which sensor is more likely to fail and cause it not to start?

SOURCE: truck burns alot of fuel, hesitates all the time

If you have that code the distributor isn't set right. I don't suppose you have access to a scanner? That is the only way to get it set right.

SOURCE: 2000 Nissan Sentra Crankshaft Position and Replacement

Go to dealership they will give a diagram to locate every single one. I replace them on my daughter car. I believe there were three sensors. I exactly know what you are talking about. I had a hard time locating the back one right above the drive shaft on driver side.

SOURCE: crankshaft and camshaft sensors location in nissan altima 2003

You are incorrect sir. There is a very good Youtube video showing you exactly where it is that is how I changed mine. The Crankshaft is located behind the engine block below and around from the cam sensor which is easly spotted looking at the engine. The crankshaft is in a difficult spot but once you figure out where it is it's easy...ish hope this helps

I have a 2000 Nissan frontier with a v6 I have crank. Position sensor code I changed the sensor but I still have the code


There is a crank and a camshaft position sensor. If you have verified both are working or replaced, pull negative battery cable for 2 hours or overnight. This should reset error codes.

2006 frontier camshaft position sensor


If you do not know where the Camshaft Position Sensor is located, then it would be safe to assume that you have not properly tested the sensor or the circuits that operate the sensor. Therefore, you cannot possibly know for sure that it even NEEDS to be replaced...so why are you looking to replace it?

My 2000 Nissan Frontier has sputtering problems and the tac goes crazy. changed the fuel pump, sending unit, spark plugs, cap & rotor. what could be wrong?


your tach is run by the engine computer, possible cause. also by the crankshaft position sensor, most likely cause, I would start there. some sensors will run within perimeters and be bad enough to cause a lot of problems

Crankshaft Position Sensor Error P0335 recurred after r&r


In the kit there are two sensor that look identical. The one for the crankshaft has a white paint mark on it near the bolt hole. Make sure that it is in the right location.
