My GMC Sonoma kept giving me the fault code P1345. My code reader didn't have a definintion for this but a quick search revealed it to be the crankshaft position sensor. It was very simple to find and install once I realized the location. One 8mm bolt, unplug the wires and it was simple to reinstall this replacement. It included 2 shims yet I don't think I will need these as the old sensor didn't have any marks in it. I have hopes it will solve the check engine light and make the truck better on fuel.

Works as described

Works as described, priced a little too high though. Shims are supplied if needed.

                A:

                Hi Nick! I think the pass lock sensor inside the ignition switch could possibly the problem. Also, you will need to check the alternator, battery, relay etc. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

              Could I use this on a small engine?

              Is this sensor triggered by the most any OE reluctor wheel?

              Do you offer a wheel that would work with this sensor?

                Hi Scott! We only claim this sensor to work on the vehicles we catalog. Also, I can only look them up by a vehicle. Currently, we do not offer the reluctor for this application.

                Hi Jason, good question! Generally, it's not required. In some cases, you need to program a sensor. I have forwarded the instructions to your email address so you can take a look on that for more information.

                Some 1994 S-series have a crankshaft position sensor but are not in use. I have a 1994 s10 with the CPI and it has a crankshaft position sensor by my harmonic balancer but my computer does not use it. 1994 - 1995 are crossover years into the OBDII systems in 96' - up.

                A:

                With reference to your inquiry on the BWD Engine Crankshaft Position Sensor - Part No. CSS123, when the crankshaft position sensor is replaced, it must be reprogrammed to the PCM. Without reprogramming, the PCM cannot properly determine the position of the crankshaft.

                A:

                With reference to your inquiry on BWD Crankshaft Sensor - Part No. CSS123 the possible reasons for a cylinder misfire are bad spark plugs or wires, respective fuel injector or ignition coil, distributor cap etc. A bad fuel pump will not cause misfire on one cylinder. Least possible options are broken valve spring, vacuum leak etc. Please check for last two options as you have replaced/repaired almost every other part mentioned above.
