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.

Mazda Protege5 - Oxygen Sensor Replacement (Rear/Lower/Downstream) - Atlanta, Georgia
It was a bit frustrating having an appointment cancellation and then having Terry arrive 1.5 hours late for the make up appointment without great communication. However, the service, once he arrived was friendly and competent. We installed my O2 sensor quickly (I had trouble disconnecting the old one).. The car still wasn't running right and he gave me some advice for a couple more things to try to get it running right. He also helped me pull out a broken spark plug boot that was stuck in the valve. I love the fact that I can purchase my own parts and do my own work and get some assistance for a reasonable price. It's amazing how much money this saves. A shop, or if they buy your O2 sensor for you- you pay 250-400. But here i could buy a quality part online for 35 and get it installed for 75. And I like that they'll help teach me how to do my own work on the car.
