My check engine light came on a few weeks back. Its off now but when I had it checked at an autoparts store. They told me it was the Crankshaft Position Sensor.I had to drive like 20 miles to an auto store that had the part. The employees there told me it was simple to change. Take out a bolt, unplug it. And plug it back in and rebolt it. The problem is.I HAVE NO CLUE WHERE IT IS LOCATED! Nobody at any of the auto part stores can tell me. And ive even asked a mechanic friend. And he said its around the engine block. Not near the pullys and its not near the alternator or oil filter like shown on one site. PLEASE just let me know where this stupid part is so I can get it changed out

It's on the back of the block. If the sensor is defective, the engine won't run at all. Start with spark plugs and wires to address a misfire. If it just idles too slowly but it's smooth, AND the battery was recently disconnected, you have to do a "minimum throttle" relearn by driving it.

It is on the side of the engine block, between the main bearing cap and the engine block, near the oil filter.

I can't find a wiring diagram to wire in the new plug for my crank position sensor. The old wiring to the sensor got ripped off some how and all that is left is the bare wires. I bought a new plug to go on the wires but I don't know which one goes where. Can you help me out.

The code in the computer said the problem was the crankshaft position sensor so we replace the sensor and it is still saying the same code. What do I do? We also changed the oil, spark plugs, and spark plug wires if that helps any.

On these cars you should replace the cam and crank sensor at the same time they run together and that may be why the code still sets. I do not know why, but it happens
