Hi Hayderaz,

I attached an exploded view of the engine block and it shows the crank sensor location. I circled it in red just in case.

Please let me know if you need anything else. Thanks

No. That was the only view that they gave in the shop manual to show where it is located. However, I didn't think to look at the replacement procedure. Here is a different view. Looks like it is behind the exhaust pipe on the side of the engine block.

Hello guy's I'm in need of some assistance. Have the car listed above don't know exactly the location of the crankshaft position sensor and don't know if there's more than one. And information on how to change the sensor and procedures if need to program or if there any re-calibration necessary. Thanks in advance!

I attached the info for the CKP sensor. There is only one so you just need to access it by removing part of the exhaust. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks

Thanks for the info. Looking at the diagram of the whole motor it's correct. Only the top end of mind the air intake is opposite from the image. The only way I see myself accessing it would be take the driver wheel off and reaching. I'm not to sure if that would be a good approach?

Sorry for the delay. Yes. That is very common to have to remove one of the wheels to access it on engines with transaxles.

Good evening.

The crank sensor is behind the right exhaust manifold. The manifold needs to be removed to gain access to the sensor.

Removal Procedure

Caution: Refer to Vehicle Lifting Caution in Service Precautions.

1. Remove the right exhaust manifold.
2. Disconnect the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor electrical connector (1).

My car runs great as long as it does not get hot. When it does it shuts down and will start and instantly shut down. Will run again after it cools off. Changed the fuel pump and temp sensor. Next what to try?

When the problem occurs, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. You can carry a spark tester in the glove box, it won't get hot. If it is hot under the hood, use gloves, pull off a spark plug wire, stick tester in boot, ground metal part of tester to metal part of engine, watch for spark.

What is litre size of engine? I looked at 3.4L, you have two crank sensors. One puts out an ac pulse signal and wiring goes to ignition module. The other is a hall switch, puts out a dc pulse goes to the pcm.

Any applicable trouble codes?

It starts when its cold. And runs until it get hot and then shuts down. Then until it cools down it will start but not stay running. Sounds like crap for the few seconds it does run we did manage to pull a code last night while it was running briefly after shutting down. It was a P0300. We have not check engine lights on or anything like that.
Now today it will start after sitting all night. Warm up and poof shut down.
Its frustrating thinking a stick of dynamite might be the fix to it.

If you perform the testing I requested we can isolate whether the crank sensor is working but it has to be done while it's not starting.

Sorry did not read far enough. Fuel pressure tested ok. Will check spark. But why would it stay running for approx 10 minutes until it gets hot and then shut down.
