Disconnect CKP electrical connector (2) at sensor. Remove CKP mounting bolt (3). Carefully twist sensor from cylinder block. Remove sensor from vehicle. Check condition of sensor O-ring.INSTALLATION
Clean out machined hole in engine block. Apply a small amount of engine oil to sensor O-ring. Install sensor (4) into engine block with a slight rocking and twisting action. CAUTION: Before tightening sensor mounting bolt (3) , be sure sensor is completely flush to cylinder block. If sensor is not flush, damage to sensor mounting tang may result. Install mounting bolt (3) and tighten to 12 Nm (106 in. lbs.) torque . Connect electrical connector (2) to sensor. Lower vehicle.
They both are on the same side of the engine.
Just the starter actually bolts to the transmission. So the crank sensor will me a bit more toward the front of the vehicle.
Here is another picture.
I have not replaced a crank sensor on this motor. I have not seen a bad one come in the shop yet.
Are you sure its a 5.7?
I will try to get you another diagram.
I know asking about the motor size sounds pretty dumb. But you wont not believe how many people give me wrong information. It sends me looking for days for the right information just to find out that their car has a different engine size.
Anyway, I am currently locating more pictures for you. I don't know yet if they are going to help but its worth a shot.
Have you tired going through the wheel well?
Well additional the pictures that I got are the same ones I have.
I do not have any more pictures available to me for this particular engine.
I am going to leave this question open and maybe other experts have what you are looking for.
HelloCustomer I am replying back to help you further with you issue. I current have a Magnum on the rack and it has a 5.7 liter engine. The crank shaft position sensor is located on the passenger side just above the starter. Inorder to access it you will need to disconnect the battery in the rear under floor storage compartment and then removed the 3 15mm bolts holding the starter in place. You can leave the wires attached and move it out of your way so that you can then access the crank position sensor. Its hard to see with the starter in place.
If this answers your question then please press ACCEPT. If you need more help then let me know. Thanks.
