Hello this time in view of the large number of questions about how to know if the CKP sensor or crankshaft position is damaged, and how to discard their failures, I decided to write this little article where I explain the steps to follow and some tips that will serve To clear your doubts. It is very important to add that this article is geared to people who are not mechanical (but throws their crushes and tries jejeje) and does not have a scanner for the car.
The CKP sensor is extraordinarily important in an engine, because it is the one that gives the information of the position of the cylinders, without it the computer cannot do "Nothing" and this is why, if it fails, the engine does not turn on.
One of the important questions is to be sure that it is actually this sensor the culprit that does not turn on our engine, then for this I recommend the following procedures:
When passing the switch in cars from 2000 to here, as a rule must turn on the petrol pump for a few seconds, then turn off if we do not start the engine through the switch.
If we don't listen to the bomb when we pass the switch, we have a problem there and not in CKP.
But what do we do in cars from previous years? In these cases you need to go or to the pressure discharger piccolo of injectors and press it or to the connector of the petrol filter and to release one so that when starting it is shown Q gasoline the hose or by the discharger.
Many when the car does not turn on, they go to the coil to test if there is a spark, but usually it gives symptoms when it wants to be damaged and if it does not spark we cannot assure that the problem is in itself or in the CKP , remember that if the CKP does not work the computer can not throw the spark because it does not know the position of the pistons, so in this case it is not necessary to do tests. So it's more effective to test the injectors.
For this test we need a test lamp. It is advisable to use a lamp whose resistance is over 10 ohms so that the current is lower or slightly above 1a.
Identify the negative cable of the injector: for this process we only have to connect our lamp to negative of the battery, put the switch in position on and connect the point of the lamp either of the two pins of the injector harness under test. When you turn on the lamp you mean we have our positive terminal, if you don't turn on try the other pin.
Now that we have identified our negative injector terminal in the harness, we now place our lamp on the battery positive and the tip to the negative of the injector harness under tests. We start our engine and verify that the lamp switches on by pulses. If you don't turn on the lamp we can make sure our CKP has problems.
We must remove the CKP sensor in such a way that it is connected electrically to its connector either with the help of alligators or cables or only to make it to the side so that it gives the chance to be able to pass in front of the sensor a metal piece to excite it.
We place our ignition switch in the on position, and then intermittently pass a ferrous metal piece very close to the front of the sensor. This excites the sensor and you should hear the ignition of the petrol pump, and the clicks of the injectors working. If we don't hear any of that, we have a problem associated with CKP.
A fault associated with the CKP is not always indicative that the sensor is damaged, it is possible that the cable is cut, bad posture of the connector or there are simply problems of shielding of the signal that passes through the cable due to lack of ground.
That's why we need to test if the sensor is in good condition. To do this I recommend reading the following articles of my authorship that are:
