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.

Volvo V40 L4-1.9L Turbo - Car is not starting - Alpharetta, Georgia
Ira was on time, very polite and professional. My car wouldn't start and he came to inspect it. Found that I just need new bolts for my battery. The bolts have to be ordered from vovlo and won't have them in until tomorrow. He's coming back tomorrow to install and get my car running for no extra charge!

Volvo V40 L4-1.9L Turbo - Intake Manifold Gaskets - Felton, California
It was a good experience having Dave arriving on time and was eager to work on the car. He listens to my descriptions of my problem with my car and steps I had taken to pinpoint to the repairs that I needed. He was done replacing the intake manifold gasket and within the time scheduled. I find Dave easy to communicate with. I would call him again if required and would recommend him to my friends and families.......thanks Dave
