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.

Tom
37 years of experience
Tom is officially my new favorite mechanic. He came to do an oil change and tire rotation on my mother's car on a Saturday morning. He arrived at 11:00 on the dot ready to work. Very friendly guy, and we learned that he was a mechanic at Audi for about a decade. I love that he didn't talk down to my mother or me for being women, explained any issues we had and I could tell he really knew what he was doing. What a big difference from the last mechanic I had! Since the last mechanic that came left my car in a bit of a mess, I asked if Tom could take a quick look at mine as well once he was done. Being off the clock by then, he happily agreed to take a look. What an honest, great guy. On a Saturday, too! One quick look and he could tell the last mechanic didn't put my filter on right and that's why oil leaked everywhere..this is why it's important to look through reviews before booking your mechanic. I'll never use anyone but Tom! He's efficient, friendly, genuine and very good at what he does.
