2000 Dodge RAM 1500 will crank but not start.

I used to have the same problem, not so much in the winter though. It was all the time, in any weather. I changed the crankshaft position sensor. Its located at the back of the engine on the passenger side. Its actually in the top of the transmission bell housing. There are two bolts that hold them in. There are allen key bolts, I believe the size is 3/8. My crankshaft position sensor was dirty. It had a lot of rust on it. Its really hard to get to it. there is a ground strap bolt kinda in the way as well above one of the bolts. You will need to get a new rubber grommet from Dodge for your new sensor. has the sensor for $54.95

Were is the crankshaft sensor is located on 1990 dodge pickup with 318

If your truck has a multiport fuel injection system then crank sensor is located on the top of the bell housing on the passenger side. If your truck has carburetor or throttle body injection then your truck doesn't have a crank sensor.

Changed manual clutch in a 2000 dodge ram 1500 2wd v6 truck got it back together now it turns over but won't crank

Do you mean that the engine will not fire or run? If that is what you mean, When you replaced the clutch you may have damaged the Crank shaft position sensor. It is located on the passengers side of the engine. where the Bell housing and engine block are bolted together, Just above where the exhaust manifold and exhaust pipe meet. It is bolted to the engine block with 2 bolts. If you do not know it is there and even if you do it is easy to damage.

Hello dennis i hope you would please help me my 98 dodge ram 1500 has had clutch replaced 3 times keeps coming out first two bearrings out of pressure plate last time clutch center came apart little o


Obviously you have a major problem with the clutch and related items. Have you checked for a good Pilot Bearing in the end of the Crankshaft? Have you used a Dial Indicator with a Magnetic Base stuck to the Flywheel and indicated the main Pilot Hole of the Bell Housing to determine if it is perfectly centered in relation to the Crankshaft? If it is not concentric within less than 0.005" then you have to get some offset dowel pins made to correct the concentricity problem.

I don't understand the Pressure Plate problem. You state that 2 bearings failed in the Pressure Plate? You mean the bearings on the Clutch Fingers? I just don't understand this unless they were damaged while installing the transmission. As to tearing out the center of the Clutch Disc this can also be caused by the lack of a proper Pilot Bearing and proper bell housing alignment concentric with the Crankshaft. It is imperative when installing the Transmission to place it in Gear and lock the Tailshaft so you can align the spline while sliding it into the Bell Housing and Clutch Disc. Once up to the Bell Housing take it out of gear so you can align the Bolt Holes. Tighten the Bolts to factory Torque specifications. Also, the proper Throw Out Bearing and Clutch Fork including whatever the fork pivots on. I have encountered many Bell Housings and/or Blocks where the Dowel Pins or Dowel Pin Holes in the Bell housing have been as much as 0.090" out of specification in relation to Crankshaft Centerline. I used to be an NHRA Stock & Super Stock Racer and have built hundreds of engines and aligned an equal quantity of Bell Housings for the manual shift vehicles.

Another thing that is very important is the Face of the Bell Housing where the Transmission mounts to it must also be indicated to less than 0.002" in relation to the Crankshaft so that everything is properly aligned. All Transmissions must have the proper Front Bearing Retainer with minimal clearance to the hole in the Bell Housing. This is a must as the objective is to have a perfectly straight line alignment from the true centerline of the crankshaft all the way through the transmission. Equally important is the Transmission Tailshaft bearing and Slip Yoke on the driveshaft. It all inter-relates to a perfectly straight line in perfect alignment with the Crankshaft Centerline.

Hopefully this information will help you understand just how critical the alignment of the Crankshaft, Bell Housing and Transmission is to proper assembly and Clutch life. All parts must have the correct sizes and minimal clearances and Alignment for long life and reliability.

Location of crankshaft position sensor

The CKP should be located on the top of the bell housing. You're going to want to get the vehicle in the air somehow...Ramps, etc. The shift cable will need to be moved out of the way, so remove the cable bracket off and move the cable out of the way. There should be an 11mm bolt holding the sensor into the bell housing.

I hope this helps! :)

How do you replace the crank position sensor?

  1. Park your Jeep safely away from traffic.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood and locate the (CKP) sensor to the left (driver side) of the transmission bell housing, where it meets the rear of the engine block. If necessary, shift the transmission to neutral (N), raise the front of your vehicle using a floor jack and safely support it on two jack stands. Chock the rear wheels.
  3. Step 3 Locate the CKP sensor pigtail connector to the right (passenger side) of the transmission bell housing. Unplug the CKP electrical connector.
  4. Step 4 Thoroughly clean the area around the crankshaft sensor using a soft brush and a shop rag.
  5. Step 5 Note whether the CKP sensor on your Jeep model is mounted with one bolt, two bolts or two nuts. If there is only one bolt, make a note of the exact sensor position, since it is adjustable and you will need to reinstall it in the same position.
  6. Step 6 Unscrew the sensor mounting bolt(s) or nuts using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket of the appropriate size. If your Jeep model uses two mounting bolts, use the same bolts during the installation process. These bolts have been machined to provide the correct space between the crankshaft sensor and the flywheel. If you use bolts with a different configuration, your vehicle may not start or operate properly.
  7. Step 7 Remove the crankshaft sensor from your vehicle.
    Installing the Crankshaft Sensor
  8. Step 1 Thoroughly clean the sensor-mounting surface on the transmission bell housing using a soft brush and a shop rag.
  9. Step 2 Clean the mounting bolt(s) or nuts using the soft brush and shop rag.
  10. Step 3 Check the new crankshaft sensor and make sure it has a piece of paper (spacer) glued to the bottom. This spacer serves as an electrical ground. Using the CKP sensor without the spacer will break the unit the first time you try to start the engine. If necessary, you may buy the spacer through your local auto parts store or dealership parts department. Ask for part number PN05252229.
  11. Step 4 Install the new CKP sensor into the transmission bell housing mounting hole.
  12. Step 5 Start the two bolts or nuts by hand and then tighten them to 9-feet lb. (12 Nm) using a torque wrench, ratchet extension and socket. If your model has only one mounting bolt, push the new sensor against the flywheel and then tighten the bolt to 60-inches lb. (7 Nm) using a torque wrench, ratchet extension and socket.
  13. Step 6 Plug the CKP sensor electrical connector.
  14. Step 7 Lower your Jeep if you had to raise it. Remove the chocks from the rear wheels.
