Engine turns over but doesn't start and starter doesn't stop engaging. Need a video to locate and replace crankshaft sensor.
Do you

Good evening,

I could not find an exact video for this engine but I attached a picture of the location It is on the driver's side of the engine at the back by the flywheel.

Why are you replacing it? Do you have a code?

The other issues you have are not affected by this sensor.

It sounds like the starter solenoid is not releasing and the starter may need to be replaced. You should verify power is not to the solenoid when the key is in the on position.

Can we start with the original issue?

So many places I've been told to find this sensor. Just trying to get a certain answer before tearing onto it. My truck has an EcoBoost engine.

Good evening,

The sensor is at the rear of the engine and works off the teeth of the flywheel.

I attache pictures of the location for you to view. It is number 7 in the second picture.

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.

It's on the driver's side rear of the engine block where it goes through to rear from the flywheel. I attached two pictures. The first one shows several different components including the crankshaft position sensor. The second, I cut a section from the picture to get a closer look at the crankshaft position sensor.

Let me know if this helps.

Take care,
Joe

Hello,

The crankshaft sensor is in different locations depending on which engine you have (#7) Here is a guide to walk you through the steps and diagrams (below) that will show you where the sensors are and how to change them on your car. Disconnect the battery first.

I have a 2011 F-150 ecoboost 3.5 and got a code P0016. Is there cam and crank sensors accessible that can be changed out?
