  • Q:

    Where is the crankshaft position sensor on an 08 Chrysler Sebring?
    Asked on 10/2/2015 by Adam from Scottsville, KY

      Hi there Adam! Happy to help with your question! The camshaft position sensor fits into the side of the engine near the oil cap along the top of the timing chain cover, look for a 3 pin connector. When the connector is disconnected put a few drops of WD-40 to the seal, twist and the old sensor should come out. For the new sensor put a few drops on the o-ring seal and push it in, bolt it down and plug back up the connector. Or you can have a certified mechanic do the job if you are not able to. When dealing with electronic parts be very careful.

  • Q:

    How do you calibrate this sensor once it is installed? Will the car start up right away after installation? Thanks!

      I'm glad to help, Ben! You don't necessarily need to calibrate the sensor after installation. You may need to reset your crankshaft adaptation in your PCM/ECM. For many vehicles having the negative battery cable off for 30 minutes or more will accomplish this task. This will probably happen during the installation of the part because when any electronic component is replaced, the negative cable should be disconnected.

      The procedure to reset the adaptive memory can vary by vehicle, please check your vehicle's repair manual for the proper procedure.
