Q: No start after crankshaft position sensor replacement

asked by on

I put a new cps sensor in and it won't start put the old cps sensor back in and it start what do I do?

My car has 88000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

I would recommend putting the old sensor back in and continuing to drive it. If there are no Check Engine Lights on and it performs as it should, you should not have any problems. If you installed by recommendation of a check engine code, I would suggest revisiting the code to see what other possibilities may cause the no-start issue as they are often times linked to multiple possibilities.
