Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement Service

What is the Crankshaft Position Sensor all about?

Many newer cars have computerized engine management systems that rely on sensors to report data to the computer. The crankshaft position sensor is used in conjunction with the camshaft position sensor to control ignition timing and to let the computer know when to inject fuel and provide spark sequence. Due to the mounting locations of this sensor, it is common for heat and oil leaks to cause this sensor to fail.

Keep in mind:

  • Damage to the crankshaft position sensor is sometimes caused by leaking oil, which means there may be another component of your vehicle that needs replacement or repair.
  • The electrical connector can also be damaged, and should be inspected every time the position sensor is replaced.

How it's done:

  • Scan the car for trouble codes.
  • Remove and replace crankshaft position sensor.
  • Clear trouble codes.
  • Check for the proper operation of the car.

Our recommendation:

The crankshaft position sensor will usually let you know when it needs replacing. The Check Engine warning light will illuminate and you may notice that your vehicle has a hard time starting or running smoothly. When you notice any of these signs, schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Crankshaft Position Sensor?

  • Car does not start.
  • Check engine light is on.
  • Car misfires (car runs rough).

How important is this service?

The crankshaft position sensor relays critical information to your vehicle’s computer management system. The sensor provides the management system with the information it needs to control ignition timing, and it lets the computer know when it needs to provide sparks and fuel. Without a functioning crankshaft position sensor, the computerized management system doesn’t receive this critical information, and the vehicle will either not start, or will misfire while you’re driving it.

Fast and easy service at your home or office

Ejnar was punctual and very knowledgeable. He explained to me what he was doing but went on to show me visually the problem with the car. I would recommend Ejnar to anyone.

Acura CL V6-3.2L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Hollywood, Florida
I was a bit disappointed. I used yourmechanic.com to do a pre-purchase car inspection for me on a car that I was wanting to purchase and have shipped to me as it was too far away for me to check out in person. The tech called me at the scene and gave me a full report of the car. I had asked the tech over the phone specifically if anything was lit up on the dash and he said no. Unfortunately when the car was shipped to me the SRS light was lit up on the dashboard and has stayed on ever since. I texted the yourmechanic.com rep twice to ask about it and never received a response. This is the kind of thing I wanted to avoid on receiving a car. I counted on yourmechanic.com to be my eyes and ears so to speak. Everything else turned out OK, however I feel for the money spent, responding to a text should NOT have been too much to ask for.

Acura CL L4-2.3L - Camshaft Seal - Marietta, Georgia
Gary was Awesome! He was very professional and super informative of the repair work he was doing. When he got there I explained to him that I had a major oil leak where oil would leak out immediately as it poured in. Before starting job he looked over the engine to make sure the cam shaft seal was actually the cause of the problem which was very reassuring to me. After he started job he noticed that the shaft balance seal was actually the problem so he replaced both seals in a timely manner and even took care to test drive and thoroughly clean up area. I would reuse him in a heartbeat!
