I've been told it could be crank sensor, cam sensor, or the control unit, but that the crank sensor would be the most likely culprit and one of the least expensive places to start the repair process.
I'm an amateur mechanic who has more experience with older vehicles than those with computer controls.
I am looking for the crank sensor. I was told by the dealership it is near the starter and exhaust manifold. After 40 minutes with a drop light and mirror I still can't see where it is. I don't have the special tools required (star shaped bolt heads, when did those come out?) To remove components to get to the exhaust manifold to get it out of the way.
Could someone please help me locate the crank sensor and let me know what I may have to move/remove to gain access to it? I found the part at a good price at the dealership ($40!), I'm hoping it won't take hours of dealer labor to get to and replace the part.
have the same problem?
