Question about 2003 Nissan Altima
Where is the crank shaft sensor located on the 2003 nisan altima vehicle?
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.

O.k... on the very botton of the engine... right above the harmonic balancer... better known as the crankshaft pully... it shold be just off to the side a little

There are many that have said that you can see the sensor from above. I can't seem to find it. Here are some pics of my 2003 2.5 Altima. Here's some pics of my engine.

There are two ckp sensors on the 03 altimas....both on top of the transmission, or at least on my boss's altima. we have replaced both and the code keeps coming back, along with a multiple random misfire code....the car has had an engine replaced under recall/warranty from the dealership....still has demons
