Question about 2001 Nissan Sentra
SOURCE: crank shaft sensor
I have 10 years experience in a Nissan dealership and I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Crankshaft Position Sensor is NOT located next tp the crank pulley... it is rather at the other end of the engine near where the transmission bellhousing bolts to the engine block. It is on the side toward the firewall near the bottom. Even if you can get the vehicle on a lift and get under it, you can't really see it... It's more of a feel thing... There was a campaign (recall) on these engines to replace Crank Position and also Cam Postion sensors. Check with your dealer- the campaign might be open. You will need your VIN number when you call.

If it is the front wheel drive model, it is in the back side of the motor looking up at it....simple to change.....the side that faces the cab of the vehicle.

On a 2.7L it is located above and to the right of the starter. You will have remove the starter heat shield to gain access to it.
