Q: Location of crankshaft position sensor with pictures

asked by on

Need help locating the crankshaft position sensor on a 2011 Dodge Avenger 2.4 litre
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The crankshaft position sensor is located at the rear of the engine block near the transmission. Unfortunately I cannot send over any pictures. If you need to have your crank sensor replaced, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to replace the crankshaft position sensor.
