Yes. Jack the car up securely. you need to take passenger wheel off.remove caliper off . remove rotor. remove shock assembly and wheel bearing assembly slide.axleshaft out of the way.take serpinetine belt off. remove cover so you can see and access harmonic balancer.use impact to take bolt out of harmonic balancer.use wheel puller to take off harmonic balancer. Crank sensor should be right under harmonic balancer.

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.

I replaced front crank shaft seal in 2003 chevy impala and its still leaking and wont start what dod i do


The shaft may be worn down by the old seal and it wont work with a new seal because of the size change. Are you sure that you have the timing set right? Also did you remove the crank sensor or the crank sensor wires?

Replaced crank shaft ticking noise


There are a lot of steps involved in replacing a crank shaft where a simple mistake can cause problems. The bolts and end caps need to go back in the exact same position and direction facing the front. The crank needs to be stored upright or it can be damaged simply by its own weight while lying down. The bearings need to be the correct size and installed in the proper position lining oil holes up and greased properly. The bolts need to be torqued in the proper sequence and to the correct torque. The Crank then needs to be tapped with a hammer and torqued again.

Sounds like something was missed if your getting a bottom end engine noise now.

When I am driving and get to about 30 MPH the whole front end of my car begins to shake. The dash board and, steering wheel. It will becomes less noticable when I get to 55 MPH. And now when I slow down...


Hello, There are a lot of moving parts in the front end. You may have a bad CV joint which is on the shaft that turns the front wheels. Each side has a similar part. There are also hub bearings which are in the hub and the hub is turned by the CV joint shaft.

The CV joint can break without tearing the rubber cover on the shaft, but if someone looks under the car at the CV shaft and sees oil or grease or a torn rubber cover on the right side CV shaft; it will confirm the diagnosis.

Once this part breaks the car will not move anymore. A broken CV joint can cause other parts to fail like the hub bearings. You can call around and price the repair or if you know someone who can do the work, price the parts.

If the shaft needs to be removed, it is behind several parts which will need to be removed first.
