Where Is Crank Position Sensor Located?

Recommended Posts

1995 5 speed, 2.0 4 cyl w/ 205K. Car died.... thought it was the distributor. It was under lifetime warranty... replaced it myself 3 years ago (50K miles) they tested and said indeed it was bad (coil) . They sent me a new one, installed it and car still does not get any spark. I think it's the crank position sensor, but not sure where that's located. I do most of the work on the car myself... even if that's not it, I'm still saving money by doing these repairs in logical steps. I'm not real keen on testing electrical stuff, so I'm kind of stuck! Thanks in advance for any advice! Jeff in Ohio

Don't think the 95 used one....the 94 had it inside the distributor, the 95 used a camshaft position sensor integrated with the distributor and the 96 used both, an external crank sensor and internal cam sensor. It's quite possible you got a "bum" distributor (or wiring harness to/from).

Interesting... so without sending that dist. back to the company I bought it from, how would I check it locally?

IF your engine has a CPS (crank sensor) it's down by the bottom of the oil dipstick tube. Go to this site, type in auto as your user name and password, select your year and model and you'll get tons of info on your car, including testing procedures.
