A Crankshaft Position Sensor is a component of the engine that is responsible for sending information to the engine control module. This information includes the position of the crankshaft and the speed of the engine. If the sensor fails, it will need to be replaced.

The process of replacing a Crankshaft Position Sensor is relatively simple. The sensor is located near the front of the engine, and can be accessed from the hood. The wiring harness will need to be disconnected, and the sensor will then be unbolted and removed. The new sensor will be installed in the same location, and the wiring harness will be reconnected. The process should take less than an hour to complete.
