    Comments about BWD Crankshaft Sensor:

    I spent almost an hour replacing my factory crank sensor with this unit. After burning my arms on the hot trans 50 times, it did not fix the hard starting symptoms I was having. Rather than taking it back out and returning it to the store I left it in and continued to chase down the problem. Leaving for work today, the car would not start. After finding that I had no spark I spent another hour removing the so-called new one and replacing it with the old unit. SURPRISE! It started right up! Thank you big box retailer for your junk parts once again!

      where is this located on a 98 S-10 P/U 2.2 engine??

      • A:

        Right side of engine block. Near the coil packs.
        Remove front passanger wheel and access it through fender wall under the flap. Use a screwdriver to carefully pry it out. The O ring will bind somewhat and you don't want to break it so you can't pull out the sensor.Patience needed here. There are a number of sensors there. Compare connectors to verify the correct sensor you're removing. pre-lube new sensor O ring to make installation easier.
