          In most modern cars this sensor 'tells' to engine control (computer) the position of the crankshaft in ratio with the camshaft; both are synchronized to a specific position to produce the combustion (that means the camshaft sensor to do the same) with this readings (from both sensor) the computer fire up the fuel injectors & the ignition coil by controlling the frequency of the fuel injection your engine is managed to proper performance & this start with the crank sensor trigger signal.

      • Q:

        Hello,

        Looking at picking this part up for a 2005 Nissan Altima with a 2.5L motor. My question is I've heard that the crank sensor and camshaft sensor are the same part on that particular car. This particular part description doesn't mention it being able to be used as a camshaft sensor. So, are they in fact the same and can this sensor be used as both the camshaft and the crank position sensor?

          Lay under passenger side on your Nissan Sentra close to the driveshaft and look left towards middle of the back of the engine. The crankshaft position sensor faces rearward and is in the corner where the engine meets the transmission.

          A:

          Crank sensor is a magnetic sensor that senses gear teeth on the crankshaft. There are 36 equally spaced teeth with one tooth missing. The missing tooth corresponds to top dead center which the computer detects and is used to set all the engine timing. The crank sensor is the main timing element in the engine management system and coordinates timing of fuel injection and spark. The coil may be intermittently opened and even gap between the sensor or internal magnetic strength may be off. Check that the electrical circuit is intact. That is that the wiring is not abraded or the connectors oxidized.
