Q: how much for a crankshaft positioning sensor and also how much to have a mechanic put one in

asked by on

i have a 2005 6.0 junk ford f250 that threw a code on a crankshaft positioning sensor and was wondering the price for part and price for mechanic to put one in roughly.

My car has 218000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

Before you have one of our mobile mechanics replace the crankshaft position sensor, you should have them complete a full check engine light inspection first. It’s possible that the code being displayed on your code reader is caused by a different component malfunction, such as the electrical harness attached to the sensors.
