Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on 1995 F150 I dont have any of the above listed items. Do I need to take it to a FORD shop to have them run a scan on it or can I unhook the battery to attempt to reset it?

A buddy said it might be that, I am just trying to figure out what is wrong with it and taking whatever advice I can get.

It was parked for a about 2 1/2 years and would only be driven every now and then because I was overseas. It started acting up after about 2 years and would lose power while my wife was driving and then die. If it would sit for a while she could start it back up and it would make it home. WHen I got home I changed out the fuel pump, coil, and had ignition module checked. Now it starts sometimes and other times it won't. If it does start it might run for a few minutes and then die. When it dies out, it is as if someone turns off the key. It has no rhyme or reason as to when it will start or not.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

CID sensor is mounted at crankshaft. Disconnect sensor connector and measure resistance across sensor terminals. Resistance should be 300-750 ohms. If resistance is not as specified, replace sensor.

Here are some wiring diagrams so you can test the system to see what is wrong.

Please run some tests and get back to us so we can continue helping you.

Best, Ken

Best, Ken

Since your truck has a distributor it does not have a crank sensor

I have a 1992 Ford f150, 4.9 L, 300 straight 6 motor. Will crank over but not start. Have replaced the alternator, distributor cap and button, and still won't start. Thought it was crank sensor. Some told me it's located in alternator, some say it's not. Anyone have any opinions on this
