The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor sends the PCM a signal indicating crankshaft position and is essential for calculating spark timing
Removal & Installation
- Raise and safely support the vehicle.
- Remove the LH catalytic converter.
- Remove the bolt, nut and the heat shield.
- Remove the rubber grommet cover.
- Disconnect the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor electrical connector.
Remove the bolt and the CKP sensor.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure, noting the following:
- Tighten the CKP sensor bolt to 10 Nm (89 lb-in).
- Tighten the heat shield bolt and nut to 10 Nm (89 lb-in).
- Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
- Disconnect the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) electrical connector.
- Using a digital multimeter measure the resistance between the CKP + and CKP - at component side of the connector.
- The resistance should fall between 250-1,000 ohms.
If resistance is not within specification the CKP sensor may be faulty.
