Hi there,

If the old crank sensor had "some serious damage", I would say you need to disassemble the bottom end of the engine, before it does blow up.

Can you post a photo of the sensor damage please?

I don"t have it anymore.It's back by the flywheel isn't it?not internal.I just got the car I wonder if somebody damaged the flywheel and the sensor when installing a transmission or engine?If the flywheel is bent where it signals the crank sensor,could that cause my problem?

After some research, it is part of the torque convertor drive plate.

Here is a pic:

I've only ever had only or two cars with damaged "flywheel teeth", and after all avenues were checked, the starter motor came out etc, to find damaged flywheel.

Hi there,

How have gone with your car?

I think we both know you need to remove the starter motor and maybe transmission for inspection.

Wishing you all the best.
