SOURCE: crankshaft position sensor 1999 dodge diesel

The easiest way to remove these crankshaft sensors is to pull the transmission out. They are in a very poor location and anyone with a moderate size hand has trouble pulling these out without pulling the transmission out. The vehicle will not run if this sensor is out, and i recommend replacing it even if it wasn't bad if you ever have to work on your transmission or ever have transmission work done. Knowing you have a Dodge, presuming it's an automatic, you will, and i repeat, will have to get transmission work done.

SOURCE: Where is the crankshaft position

It is stuck in bellhousing of the transmission near the rear head. The new crank sensor will come with a piece of gasket paper on the end of the sensor. Install the sensor all the way in against the pick-up wheel. When you crank the engine the wheel will rip off the paper and the adjustment will be correct.

Tying to find crank sensor for 2002 Cadillac Seville std 4.6 liter


This answer covers 1999-2005 Cadillac Deville, Eldorado & Seville.
Example Engine:
2002 Cadillac Seville STS 4.6L SFI DOHC HO 8cyl.

This engine has (2) Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensors: the Upper sensor is CKP sensor B, and the lower sensor is CKP sensor A (this is included for the OBD-II DTC codes - P0385 references Sensor B = upper CKP sensor, whereas P0335 references the lower CKP sensor (sensor A)).

Both crankshaft position sensors are located in the front of the engine just above the oil filter adapter. To access both CKP sensors, jack up vehicle on the passenger side, remove the oil filter, and the oil filter adapter, including the Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) switch. See illustration.
tying-find-crank-sensor-2002-cadillac-3hcuyyaerdphtgzyedxwn2k0-1-0.jpg
The ARROW points toward Front of Car.
1. Upper Crankshaft Position Sensor (B).
2. Lower Crankshaft Position Sensor (A)
3. Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) switch
4. Engine Oil Level switch
The Oil Filter is the can-type object below the oil filter adapter, which includes the EOP switch. Recommend: remove oil filter with an oil filter socket/strap wrench, since it's close to the oil pan.

Where are the crankshaft sensors on a 2001 cadillac deville sedan?


The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor is a three wire sensor based on the magneto resistive principle. A magneto resistive sensor uses two magnetic pickups between a permanent magnet. As an element such as a reluctor wheel passes the magnets the resulting change in the magnetic field is used by the sensor electronics to produce a digital output pulse. This system uses two sensors within the same housing for the V6 engine, and two separate sensors for the V8 engine. The PCM supplies each sensor a 12-volt reference, low reference, and a signal circuit. The signal circuit returns a digital ON/OFF pulse 24 times per crankshaft revolution.
Removal & Installation

  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the air deflector.
  3. Remove the oil filter adaptor.
  4. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor electrical connector.
  5. Remove the crankshaft sensor retaining bolt.
  6. Remove the crankshaft sensor.

To install:

NOTE Inspect the crankshaft sensor O-ring for wear or damage. If a problem is found, replace the O-ring.
  1. Lubricate the crankshaft sensor O-ring with clean engine oil.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  2. Install the crankshaft sensor and the retaining bolt. Tighten the retaining bolt between 10 Nm (89 inch lbs.).
  3. Connect the crankshaft position sensor electrical connector.
  4. Install the oil filter adaptor.
  5. Install the air deflector.
  6. Lower the vehicle.
  7. Operate the engine and inspect crankshaft sensor for engine oil leaks.
  8. Perform the CKP System Variation Learn Procedure.
Hope helps.
