Obviously not a mechanic
with bad sensors you would have starting and noticeable engine running problems
have the fault codes read by an accredited service center and check the EVAP system

1st, Nissan had a recall on Crank position sensors for 2002-2006 Altima's. Check with you dealer before you go doing any repairs. You may discover you can get your car repaired at no charge.
NHTSA Campaign ID number :O7V527000
Symptom: Erratic behavior. Stalling and no starts and very difficult to diagnose due to the time frame in which the component actually malfunctions. The warranty should not be limited to the original owner.
I would also need more specifics as to which engine you have so I might assist you in where the location of the sensor is. The Altima had a 4 and a 6 cyl engine offered that year.

My 2004 VW Passat 1.8 turbo has had quite a few problems. In February my car started flashing OIL PRESSURE TURN MOTOR OFF whenever I'd hit 2000 RPM. SO I got my oil changed and my pressure checked and it...


With all of the low voltage problems going on here I would check the body computer. That is the only thing I can think of that would cause all of this. Some others may have suggestions on this.

My 2006 Nissan Altima started skipping or a slight buck today and has off and off for a few weeks, but today when it did that, the engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said it was the crank...


My 2006 Altima used to be HORRIBLE. The engine would sometimes be hard to start. Bucked like crazy. It would stall randomly if I was stopped or driving slowly (stopping or going for a light, while slowing down during turns). After a couple calls, over a period of months, checking for recalls they finally said there was a recall on the entire engine. Thank goodness my car was still under its 100K miles. Nissan fixed it, as they should. They also claimed the crank sensors needed to be replaced & that my engine mount was cracked. We just paid for all that b/c we were finally glad to have the engine problem resolved free of charge. Loooong story short, have your local dealer check for recalls.

Throwed a code po335 crank sensor , i changed the crank sensor cleared the codes and 30 miles later check engine light came back on


Are you sure it was the crank sensor that you replaced? The cam and crank sensors look identical. Was the engine hard or slow to start? If so, this will sometimes set this code.

Crank position sensor for 2003 Nissan Altima


a crank position sensor , sends a signal to pcm about crankshaft position signal, the sensor controls spark timing and firing order. the signal is also used for pcm to detect a missfire!! it also sends this info to ignition module, any mechanic can replace a crankshaft sensor!! call a auto parts store and see if you can get one, the cost should be a lot less.

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.
