Re: crank position sensor location
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!

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.
The crank shaft position sensor is located just above the starter on the front of the engine block.If your not sure what you can do is purchase one and then look at the connector end to see if it looks the same.Hope this helps.Good luck.
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!!
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.
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 paul
