      Comments about BWD Crankshaft Sensor:

      Well I had to order this part in and waited a little bit longer then usual. After getting the crank shaft sensor it failed after installing it. So I had to take it all back off and return it to advance auto parts and wait once again for this store to get another one back in stock. Not to happy with this purchase seeing how much it cost and failed to solve my problem by braking after installing it. It's a very bad deal to have to put this crank shaft sensor on twice because of the failure in your product. I just hope that the other new one will not do the same thing. Thank you for you time sincerely David Kuehn

        Comments about BWD Crankshaft Sensor:

        I bought this for my 1991 Ford Ranger with 4 cyl. This being a 'spare' vehicle in my fleet, I wasn't in much of a hurry to get it running. After I bought it, it sat for nearly a year on a shelf...untouched. The box was never dropped or mishandled.

        I finally got around to putting it in. Vehicle still had no spark. I couldn't return this part since it only has a 1-year warranty plus the fact that Advance won't allow returns on electrical parts that have been installed. So I basically wasted $120.

        On a hunch, I bought one from a junk yard off a similar truck. Once I installed the one from the junk yard, the truck fired right up and ran like a champ. I have since sold the truck to a co-worker who's been driving it for 3 years. Do yourself a favor and try to get a ginuine OE crank position sensor.

          1993 Ford Ranger 2.3L How would I test or know if my Crankshaft Sensor is bad or starting to go bad?

            A:

            Yes, this part BWD Crankshaft Sensor, part number CSS60P manufactured by BWD fits your vehicle 1993 Ford Ranger 2.3L. The The function of crankshaft sensor is to monitors the relationship between valves and pistons in the engine to maintain the variable valve timing. It is also measures the engine's speed by calculating revolutions per minute. The symptoms of malfunctioning crankshaft sensor: When a crankshaft sensor has failed or is failing, certain timing problems will arise in engine function. The engine may start normally in some cases, but will cut off after a few minutes (or seconds) of operation. More than likely the engine will be unable to start at all. Since the crankshaft sensor is responsible for engine timing, the driver may experience engine backfire or irregular rpm function, if the vehicle starts at all.

            A:

            The sensor is located at the front of the engine; at the bottom where the crank and crankshaft pulley are located. It is behind the outer timing cover and inside the inner cover; mounted to the engine block. The wiring to it sometimes can be seen coming down on the intake manifold side of the engine.

        • Q:

          Does the red clip remain permanently with this sensor, or is it just intended for proper gap setting while the mounting bolts are being tightened, and then be removed? There were no mounting instructions included in the box.
