          Comments about BWD Crankshaft Sensor:

          This is much better than the original one because the plate where it mounts on the block is metal. The plastic on the original one makes it so hard to take it out without breaking it, then fighting with the sensor to come out. It was for a 1988 Chevy Celebrity Wagon 2.8 V6 engine which is such a tight fit. Poorest design I have ever seen on a car. I have been working on cars for over 15 years.

          • Q:

            What is the difference between this BWD crankshaft sensor CSS16P and the BWD crankshaft sensor CSS16? I noticed that BWD makes several sensors with duplicate part numbers with a P added to one and its usually a few dollars cheaper. What is the P for and why the price difference?

              Hi James, great question! The fit and function remains the same for both part# CSS16 and part# CSS16P. The only difference is part# CSS16 is an exact O.E (Original Equipment) replacement while part# CSS16P matches the original, designed with the professional installer in mind. P-Series product competes with the OE and dealerships. The BWD P-Series cam/crank sensors meet or exceed the original for OE plus performance.

              A:

              Yes, with referemce to your inquiry on the BWD Engine Crankshaft Position Sensor - Part No. CSS16P, if a crankshaft position sensor goes bad, no signal will be transmitted to the PCM, which will result in a failure to start firing. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. For any further assistance, you may also call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

              The crankshaft position sensor on your 2003 Chevrolet Impala should be the part of the engine block facing the front of the vehicle. This sensor is slightly above and toward the passenger's side of the engine oil filter.

              Sorry, there are many reasons for a fuse to blow and we are unable to suggest a solution without being able to be there with your vehicle. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

          • Q:

            OK I got a tough one. One of those nasty intermittent problems. It's a 99 chevy lumina with the 3.1 v6. The car runs normally but it will occasionally simply stop running for a split second, sometimes several times in a row. Now it's starting to stall and quit but starts right back up. It doesn't seem to be fuel related because it doesn't sputter or act like it's running out of gas. I replaced the fuel filter anyway just in case. I also replaced the throttle position sensor because it checked bad with an ohm meter but didn't help. I had it checked and it's not throwing any codes. The Haynes manual says the only things that interrupt spark are the crank sensor and the ignition module and the engine computer of course. I haven't had a chance to check the crank sensor yet but since it's intermittent I don't know if I will see any problem anyway. I wanted to know if I'm heading in the right direction? Any suggestions?

              The crankshaft sensor should be the problem on your  chevy lumina. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
