Can someone help me with some information on the crank sensor in my car? I believe my crank sensor is going bad on me. I have been having a problem with what I believe to be the crank sensor on my car. For going on over a year now I have been having issues with my car misfiring, rough idling, poor fuel economy and the worse thing it does is when the engine seems to get to hot it will cut out on me and will not start until it cools off. I had it towed the other night and the man suggested to look into my crank sensor or coil packs on my car.
I believe its my crank sensor though because I also keep getting the check engine light on and off. Someone told me to call Auto Zone and ask them if they could scan the codes on it and see if it is the crank sensor. Unfortunately they said my car is too old and they cant scan it. He said something about taking 2 paperclips though and hooking them up to something under the hood to check the codes myself. Does anyone know what I can do? I don't have my cars repair manual also.
