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.

First time user. It was refreshing and very pleasant to speak with Petter. Clearly, a mechanic who knows his way around an old MB. He was efficient, patient and encouraging with his words to keep my spirits high in getting my old 380SL running. I look forward to booking again.

Mercedes-Benz 380SL - Ignition Switch - Bellevue, Washington
Theo was ontime and extremely courteous. He diagnosed my vintage Mercedes' problem and returned a week later. The replacement part they sent him was incorrect, so he reassembled my dashboard and waited for the correct replacement. When it arrived, he not only installed it, but followed me to a service station and then test drove the vehicle to check for other problems. I will ABSOLUTELY use Your Mechanic.com in the future to avail myself of a great mobile service. Thank you.

Mercedes-Benz 380SL - Check Electrical Equipment - Orange, California
Manuel is very professional, knowledgeable and very honest. My 84 380SL Mercedes will not start and he determined that based on his diagnosis that I am going to need to have the fuel distributor repaired/rebuilt or get a refurbished one since the new ones are no longer available for this model. He was able to demonstrate the validity of his diagnosis and made it run for a couple of minutes by spraying starter fluid in the throttle because the latter is not getting fuel from the distributor. He made some valuable suggestions free-of-charge, to improve the performance of the engine. He came ahead of scheduled appointment and worked right away performing various diagnostics on the ignition and fuel system. Highly recommended.
