Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement Cost
Get an Estimate
RepairPrice Estimates are based on the estimated time for the repair, labor rates charged by trained automotive professionals, and prices for quality parts.
These estimates are designed to show a range of fair prices, instead of a single price, because there is more than one part that is appropriate to use in each repair, and more than a single mechanic who is qualified to do the repair.
Each estimate is customized for your vehicle and geographic area. Estimates exclude applicable taxes, diagnostic charges and disposal fees.

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.
