You will need to remove the starter to gain acess to the ckp sensor. once you remove the starter look on the engine block and you will see the sensor. The only problem with doing this repair yourself is that you will not be able to preform the crankshaft position variation learn procedure with out a factory scan tool. The vehicle may crank an run, but the timing advance curves will be wrong so the vehicle will probably cut off every time you remove your foot from the gas pedal. Hope this info helps!

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

I have an 2000 Oldsmobile intrigue and i need to replace the camshaft position sensor, where is it located and how hard is it to replace it?

Well if it's the 3.5 SFI engine, it's on the timing chain cover,toward the top of the engine, held in by one 10mm bolt. If you have the 3.8L it's built into the ignition module. The crank sensor is a pain in the **** on the 3.8. That's located above the oilpan, toward the rear of the car, in between the transaxle & engine,also held in by one 10mm bolt. Check out autozone's website for more info.

Wer can i find the crank sensors on a 99 olds intrigue 3.5 engine

The crank sensor is located below the front exhaust manifold and above the starter. To access it, you must lift the front of the vehicle, and remove the starter. Once the starter is removed the sensor is visible. Because of the poor location and poor GM engineering these sensors fail. You have excessive heat from the exhaust and oil leaking from the valve covers that short them out. Also once the sensor is replaced, it must undergo a re-learn process. Unfortunately this process can only be performed by a GM dealer via their computer system.....if you need further assistance, feel free to post them on FYa...hopefully this helps!!

Trying to replace the crankshaft position sensor on a 2001 olds intrigue and cannot locate it. Where is it?

Hello suewagner.
The crank sensor is mounted above the starter motor on the firewall side of the engine. The sensor picks up the signal direct off of the crankshaft through a machined hole in the engine block.
I have removed them without dropping the starter but learned that in most cases it is easier to drop the starter down to access it.
Here is a diagram for you.


There you are, hope this helps you.
Take care,

Long crank time for 2000 olds intrigue 3.5

first thing i would do is replace your fuel filter.
with a fuel filter restriction it take longer to provide enough fuel pressure to fire.
that would be the most common but there are also may other things that could have happened but would need more information to do a process of elimination
good luck
