Hi there,
Can anybody who has had a crank sensor failure or changed please post a little feedback on their experience?
My stopped last week but started an hour later when I went back with a car trailer to retrieve it.
Having got the sensor out last night and done some checks, I'm not sure it is the reason for the failure. 168,000km, 12yr old car............. There are older cars than mine out there with longer distances on the odometer yet the crank sensor doesn't appear to be very common in topics of failure in these forums.

Is the 9000 ('92-'95) crank sensor the same with a different loom?
I have been offered a '95 9000 crank sensor from a wrecker. He claims it will fit....

Any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers

I've got the sensor out and on the bench trying to stress it under heat.

I did the O ring and seal 12 months ago when I changed the harmonic balancer.
I'm also about to remove and re-seal the hoses and rear plate on the back of the water pump.

I'm trying resolve in my mind that it is the actual fault, hence praying for people to talk about later 900's that aren't turbos.

I also trying not to have to spend $360 for the sensor.............. We have two girls with cystic fibrosis who need regular medical treatment, (see: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$) and like anyone else in the real world, we have a budget that gets leaner every time one fills up at the bowser, so I want to be more than 80% sure that the crank sensor is the culprit.

It would seem that the sensor is often quoted but never blamed for any problems. Thus, the doubt.


Cheers

God bless London
