Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement Service & Cost

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.

Peter

15 June 2015 Review: YourMechanic.com Recently, I had the opportunity to check out a service that I had, for quite awhile, wondered about and would it fit with the ever-changing consumer worldview. Okay, at least, here in the United States. YourMechanic.com offers to come to you and service your vehicle's needs. While you continue your work day; they continue theirs. When all is done, that's exactly that. They're done with their day, you're done with your day and the day-off your car unexpectedly took is also done. Now, you're back on the road or at least able to head out if there's someplace you have to be. Although this may not be a new service; it is for me. I'm glad I found it, used it and now I can recommend it. The mechanic I met, Peter, came with 35 years of experience, licensed, prepared and engaged. I haven't found that at decades old, established companies anywhere, ever. Perhaps, that old model, along with its particular brand of hassles and drawbacks is becoming obsolete. One thing for sure, it won't be missed by me. In as much as the auto/mechanic industry is not my primary area of expertise, allow the following illustration which draws on my personal background to drive home the point: If YourMechanic.com were to announce an Initial Public Offering (IPO) tomorrow, you bet you'd find me among those first in line positioned to grab up as many shares as possible for a long term "hold." Regards, David Duke, Phoenix, Arizona *Note: Please strike this note from the official review as it is intended for inter-office use only. Please feel free to correct any glaring typos I may have overlooked. I am submitting this with a deadline in mind.

Noe went above and beyond the service I requested (oil change and tire rotation). He gave my car a thorough inspection, and took detailed images of several areas I need to put additional maintenance into. He was fast too - in and out in less than an hour! Thank you Noe for an excellent job!

A very personable young man, but more importantly he knew the problem and fixed it without any hesitation. If all your mechanics are like Stefan you will have a great company.
