Pretty easy it has one ten mm bolt holding it down ethier on the trasmmision side (bellhousing) or on the belt side near the crankshaft (main belt pulley) it will have a single thick black lead coming off it and this should turn into a three wire plug it may be located under the crank shaft pully and would require you remove the belts and the pully and if so you would need a stong impact gun or honda crank pully holder and a breaker bar i would look here first i think it is behind there, unplug and unbolt this and make sure if there are any shims or spacers under it that they go back how they were i am assuming you have no spark? or an intermittin stall situation?

2005 neon cranks but dies after about 20 seconds. We changed fuel pump same thing changed crank shaft sensor same thing changed throttle body sensor same thing

Check fuel pressure at the injector rail. Watch it until the car dies. Also check to make sure injectors are not shutting off. Should be clicking as you try to start, even after the car dies. Could be a fault in the security system.

When you change the crank sensor you need a scan tool to set them.The distributor has to be turned using a scan tool to get the crank sensor dialed in.

My doge neon 2001 has a code of p1391 and i need to know whats wrong with my car can you help me

The code is the Cam Sensor and or The Crank Sensor.The problem with dodge is the computer does not recognize which sensor it is it is one or the other it is easier just to replace both not that exspensive about $80 - $100 for both and easy to change.Avoid the hassle and change both because the other one will go shortly after anyways.

1993 jeep grand c wont start help.Car was running fine, then just died. Engine turns over but there is no spark going to the distributor. We have changed distributor, checked coils and spark plugs....what...

I think the Crank Shaft Position Sensor is bad. It will be where the transmission and engine meet together. Some vehicles are at the front, but I've changed out plenty on jeeps. The part is around $50 but it's something that takes about 5min for me to change but very easy for you to do also. It's a sensr that "knows what position your crank is in, in order for the engine to fire, the sensor read from the crank. I would try this first. Good Luck

What is a crank shaft position sensor, how do i know if its bad and is it hard to replace

the crank sensor tell the computer were the engines crankshaft is positioned so it can make a spark and squirt fuel at the right time.its mounted in the bell housing near the top of the trans. its fairly east to change.there is also a cam sensor under the dist cap, real easy to change, both will give you the same problem [no start] if bad.

The crank sensor is near the harmonic balancer or the lowest pulley on the motor. Should be fairly easy to change. Camshaft sensor should be at the rear of the engine on top. Also relatively easy to change.
