      Good, quality replacement. Turns out it wasn't what was causing my Chevy venture problems but it's good to know I got a new one. Nothing on the venture van is easy to get to but thus is one of the easier parts to replace.

      • Store price is much more

      Best Uses

        Comments about CARQUEST by 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:

          I have looked high and low. I can not find the location of the crankshaft sensor on a 1993 Chevy Cavalier z24 3.1.

            Hi Angel, I am happy to assist! The crankshaft sensor on your 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 3.1 is located in the rear of the engine. In order to access the sensor you will need to raise the vehicle using a floor jack and secure the vehicle with jack stands. The sensor can be seen thru a small gap between the engine and the transmission its located right above the oil pan. I have emailed you a picture representing the sensor location.

            A:

            Hi CJ, This part should be located behind the crank pulley on the front of the engine, closest to the firewall. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

        • 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?

            A:

            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.

            Hi Wayne, glad to assist you! Sorry, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

          will this sensor not allow the injectors to fire

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            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.
