1. Verify that the CKP sensor is securely installed.
2. Using a thickness gauge, measure the air gap between the plate projections at the back of crankshaft pulley and the CKP sensor.

-

If not within the specification, inspect the plate projections for cracks or bending.
-

If there is any malfunction, replace the plate.

-

If the monitor item condition/specification (reference) is not within the specification, even though there is no malfunction, carry out the
"Circuit Open/Short Inspection".

Air gap
0.5 - 1.5 mm {0.02 - 0.05 in}

Visual Inspection

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove the CKP sensor.
3. Verify that there are no metal shavings on the sensor.

-

If the monitor item condition/specification (reference) is without the specification even though there is no malfunction, carry out the "Circuit
Open/Short Inspection".

1. idle the engine

2. Measure the output voltage using an oscilloscope.

-

If not within the specification, replace the CKP sensor.

-

If the monitor item condition/specification (reference) is without the specification, even though the voltage is within the specification, carry out
the "Circuit Open/Short Inspection".

Circuit Open/Short Inspection

1. Inspect the following wiring harnesses for an open or short circuit. (Continuity check)

Open circuit

-

If there is no continuity, the circuit is open. Repair or replace the wiring harness.
-

CKP sensor terminal A and PCM terminal 2P

-

CKP sensor terminal B and PCM terminal 2W

-

CKP sensor terminal C and main relay terminal E

Short circuit

-

If there is continuity, the circuit is shorted. Repair or replace the wiring harness.

only it says the place has a mark and so is the sensor
Mazda Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

theres a factory centering, and if ever removed the case has to be marked with a marker to put it back exactly where it was. the air gap has to be perfect too

Mazda Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

1. Rotate the crankshaft in the direction of the engine rotation and remove the cylinder block lower blind plug when the No.1 cylinder is at the

point prior to top dead center (TDC) of compression, then install the SST.

2. Rotate the crankshaft in the direction of the engine rotation so that the No.1 piston is at TDC of the compression stroke. (Until the crank

weight contacts SST and stops.)

2. Using a straight edge, draw a straight line directly in the center of the twentieth tooth of the crankshaft pulley pulse wheel (counting

counterclockwise from the empty space).

CAUTION: If the line is not accurately drawn, ignition timing, fuel injection and other engine control systems will be adversely effected.
Draw the straight line carefully using a straight edge.

3. Align the center line of the crankshaft position sensor and the line drawn in Step 2, then install the sensor.
4. Install the CKP sensor fitting bolts.
