    Symptoms of a bad Crank Sensor???

    What are the symptoms of a bad crank sensor?

    I haven't replaced mine since I've owned the car [2.5 years] and it has 113,xxx miles on it. So I thought I might as well go ahead and repalce it.

    Anyone have the parts number for a crank sensor?

    The easiest symptom to tell if a crank sensor is bad, is a no spark condition. The crank sensor tells the ECM when #1 is at TDC, (I think). But it does control spark. If there is no crank sensor, there is no spark

    I replaced mine about 2 years ago. The car would die (no spark) after being driven about 5 minutes. It would not start again until the engine cooled all the way down. Sorry, I couldn't find the part #.

    they're not that expensive you can get one at pep boys for like $20, they also have a replacement ECU for $100, but the core is $130. :?
