i have haynes book on my car and there does seem to be a sensor where it states but looks nothing like the part i was given from parts store ... so i want to be sure im looking at right part ....this sensor is in back of block nearest the wall above a boot to steering ......
i took this sensor out and oil came out hole ..im assuming thats normal since the crank section should be lubed lol ...but it seems to have a flat surface which goes inside the engine compartment and a hole in center ..so does the sensor have like a nipple /plunger looking part that is supposed to be in center of this sensor?
thats the only sensor in back of engine and Haynes has no other sensor listings anyplace else...
sorry 2004 dodge stratus 2.4 DoHC and VIN marking X

i really am glad you gave me the image as i was thinking i was stupid but after seeing the image ...now im positive ...its not there ...would it make a difference if the autozone guys after looking up parts said my car was late model 03 sold in 04 as 04?
i just went and double checked and confirmed theres nothing there ..also the harness that comes from the ignition coil than goes in 3 directions ...1 goes to camshaft sensor (changed it) 1 goes to exhaust under floorboard front seat ..and the 3rd wire in that harness goes to the sensor i removed ...but like i said looks nothing like what im being shown on any picture at all
i also just noticed in another site ..they stated the crankshaft position sensor is below starter in front ...there is a sensor there ..but gonna be darn hard to get outta there lol ...could this be the beast and any suggestions on removing it ....i also read another person had same issue as me ...car wont start ..no spark to ignition coil and they said their timing belt jumped a tooth ...coulkd that do it ...my car started and ran less than a minute and stalled and hasnt started since ..wife said it started rough but we took it as it was cold ..below freezing ...it was sputtering ...than stalled
is it possible to find out what fuses/relays go to ignition and spark? on my powertrain fuse box it shows the components as numbered and says refer to manual ,which i do not have , and also how about the coil on starter what if any does that have to do with ignition?
I was idiling with my foot on the brake, tranny in drive, and the car just died. Would crank, but wouldn't start. Did the no-start test for the PCM and the ASD, and thought that was the problem. Bought the same stupid Haynes book, and also couldn't find the Crankshaft Position sensor. Followed the wiring harness around to everything, and only thing I couldn't see was the sensor under the Starter and above the front engine mount.
Wasn't looking forward to the repair, but pulling off the front engine mount (5 5/8ths bolts) wasn't hard at all. (I just have a floorjack and a couple of stands, and I worked from underneath on my back.) Swapped out crankshaft sensors, and still the same problem. Still no spark.
If anyone knows what to do next, I would love to be privy to the info as well!
The crank sensor location for a 2004 Dodge dakota 3.7 V6 is on the Passenger side back by the fly wheel. You must get under the truck to see it. Use a floor jack or Truck Ramps. It takes a 1/2 stock to remove the bolt. Use a deep well socket or a 1 1/2" extension. Also use a big pair of channel lock pliers to remove it after twisting it a few times. Be carerful not to break it off in the block. Watch for dirt and try to keep it out of the old pan. Pictures included see attached
2000 dodge caravan can I remove the crank shaft position sensor through the starter location? HELP! The sensor broke off at the bell housing and is impossible to reach without taking the transmission down.
