hello Brandon my name is Marie,I have a 2005 pontiac bonniville gxp, i went to Oreillys and had a diag. test that showed i need to replace crankshaft sensorp1372. I would like to know were it is located on the car and whats the cost to replace it. I have been having a oil leak from the oil pan gaskets for about a year now, no 1 I have spoken to can tell me how to fix this problem and the cost. Thank you for your time.
My car has 175000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi Marie: With regard to the code P1372 that was downloaded, there are many potential malfunctions that will cause P1372 to set in addition to the crankshaft position sensor itself being faulty. And, if the sensor itself is suspected as the cause of the code, the waveform output of the sensor must be read on an automotive scope for confirmation. Code P1372 will set if the wiring to a perfectly good sensor simply has a fault or is disconnected. Also, a faulty Ignition Control Module can cause P1372 to set. So, at this juncture, unless the sensor is directly tested, per the factory instructions, it is simply a guess that the part is faulty. If you desire that the sensor be tested for confirmation and, if failed, replaced please refer to YourMechanic’s crankshaft position sensor service page which page will also give you the repair cost information that you desire.
