Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement Cost
Before replacing the crankshaft position sensor, a technician should verify that the timing chain/timing belt is in good condition and properly installed, the electrical circuit for the sensor is okay, and address any oil that is leaking onto the sensor.
Always use a factory OEM Crankshaft Position Sensor and be sure to check for any relevant Technical Service Bulletins (TSB), necessary software updates and re-calibration procedures.
Several symptoms may occur when a crankshaft position sensor is failing or has failed. These symptoms can include:
- Check Engine Light will illuminate
- Engine will crank over but not start
- Engine may stall while driving
- Poor engine performance (hesitating, misfiring, and lack of power)
A Crankshaft Position Sensor code isn't always triggered by a defective Crankshaft Sensor. It can be triggered by other worn components such as a worn timing belt or timing chain, defective ignition components, or a defective mass air flow sensor.
