The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) is located at the lower front of the engine on the engine front cover, also called the timing cover. Through a use of magnetic pulsation, the CKP sensor provides the PCM (control module) with a crankshaft position signal. The PCM uses that signal to determine the spark sequence (firing order) for each cylinder. It also uses the signal to precisely control ignition timing and calculate engine speed, etc. Easy fix and clean the area out first with brake cleaner before working around that area and take care not to break the tab on the wire harness that connects to the crank sensor. Good luck

Need to know how to replace the crankshaft position sensor


Silverado, the crankshaft sensor is located behind the start, you have to remove the start to get access too. Raise the vehicle and remove the right front wheel, drop the start and move forward a little bit, this will expose the sensor
