    Car sputters & stops running. Check engine light comes on. When diagnostic check is run, it indicates there is a problem with the crankshaft position sensor. I've heard that it could need to be unplugged & plugged back in, but can't locate the sensor on the car.

    Car sputters on start until warm up. Problem started after head gasket change. Once warm problem goes away but can return on next restart. Cam Position sensor error in trouble codes. Dealership stated it was the senor so they replaced but problem still there. Then they thought it was the ECM computer so they replaced that. Still no fix. Now they are replacing the timing chain. I don't think they have a clue what is wrong.

    I have the same problem. Apparently there was a recall on the crank shaft for the 2004 nissan sentra.. but nissan told me that not all 2004 sentras qualify for this recall.

Check the fuel pump first.after that check the fuel filter. probably it is clogged.these parts are loacted in your fuel tank floater.remove the back seat.remove the screws.your car is young so the crankshaft position sensor must be working properly.

Where is the crankshaft sensor located ?


The crankshaft position sensor (POS) is located on the oil pan facing the gear teeth (cogs) of the signal plate. It detects the fluctuation of the engine revolution.
After replacement, ECM reprogramming is required.
This vehicle may be subject to voluntary recall, CAMPAIGN I.D. # R0606, that involves the crankshaft position sensor:

Quote: Nissan has determined that on some 2003 - 2004 Altima and Sentra vehicles with the 2.5 liter engine the operation of the crank angle sensor is significantly affected by variations in temperature that occur due to the unique location of the sensor in the engine. Under certain driving conditions, these variations in temperature can be large enough to cause a brief interruption in the signal output from the sensor. If the interruption in the signal from the sensor is so brief that the Electronic Control Module (ECM) logic does not have time to diagnose the condition, the engine may stop running without warning while the vehicle is driven at low speed.

no this actually has nothing to do with your fuel pump and it is located at the front of the engine up towards the top should have 2 wires from it. it controls the firing of the spark plugs

Have it scanned for free at autoZone or Kragen's and post the code they gave you.It could be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. But we won't know until you post it.
