Speed Timing Sensor Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Speed Timing Sensor all about?

A speed/timing sensor measures the rotation of a component to determine its physical rotational speed. When it is monitored, it can be used to determine the correct air/fuel mixture, the spark advance, and variable valve timing for your engine. The speed timing sensor is a magnetic coil that is mounted stationary to the engine block and reads the teeth on the crankshaft as it rotates. As the crankshaft spins during driving, an induction current is created around the magnetic coil. The crankshaft’s serrated edge obstructs this magnetic field and the result gets recorded. This measurement is reported to the engine control module to determine how engine performance settings will be adjusted. If the crankshaft speed/timing sensor isn’t reading properly or at all, the Check Engine light will come on and engine performance will be compromised.

Keep in mind:

  • There can be multiple speed/timing sensors in your vehicle as some designs monitor crankshaft speed while others monitor crankshaft and camshaft speeds.

How it's done:

  • The engine trim cover is removed for access
  • The defective speed timing sensor is removed
  • The new speed timing sensor is installed
  • The engine trim cover is reinstalled
  • The vehicle is road tested and speed timing sensor operation is checked

Our recommendation:

The speed timing sensor must work properly to obtain optimal vehicle performance. There is no service interval for the crankshaft speed/timing sensor. If your vehicle has related symptoms, have one of our expert mechanics diagnose the speed/timing sensor.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Speed Timing Sensor?

  • Low coolant light comes is on
  • Lack of power
  • Check Engine light is on

How important is this service?

The engine performance is reduced if the speed/timing sensor is reading an inaccurate value. While the engine may still run, it will not run well and the problem should be corrected.

YourMechanic has changed my life! I started to feel panicked when my car began making a horrible noise and no mechanic near me was open over the weekend. My work schedule doesn't fit with the hours most auto shops in my area are open. I was so happy to find YourMechanic - my only hesitation was that it seemed way too good to be true. I could not be more glad that I overcame this hesitation. YourMechanic is going to be my go-to for car problems. Junard is a skilled professional who diagnosed my car's problem quickly and explained it thoroughly. He came up with a plan to fix it that will fit my schedule and my budget, and went above and beyond to make sure that the specialty part that's needed was put on order through a dealership, and that I was clear on what the next step in the process would be, though spared the hassle of dealing with the dealership myself. He also was conscientious in checking beyond the problem to be sure that all of the possible contributing factors and anything that might be going on was thoroughly looked at. I've dealt with a lot of car problems and mechanics and have never felt so well-informed and supported as a car owner. I am so glad I booked this appointment and found YourMechanic and Junard!
