Question about 2006 Ford Taurus
Fig. CKP sensor-3.0L (VIN S) Engine Fig. Crankshaft Position Sensor Connector
The CKP sensor is a magnetic transducer mounted on the engine block or timing cover and is adjacent to a pulse wheel located on the crankshaft. By monitoring the crankshaft mounted pulse wheel, the CKP is the primary sensor for ignition information to the PCM. The trigger wheel has a total of 35 teeth spaced 10 degrees apart with one empty space for a missing tooth. By monitoring the trigger wheel, the CKP indicates crankshaft position and speed information to the PCM. By monitoring the missing tooth, the PCM uses the CKP signal to synchronize the ignition system and track the rotation of the crankshaft.

WARNING Use only a high-impedance multimeter, otherwise damage to the PCM and/or sensors can result.
