hi every1 you can call me stupid but where can i find the crank sensors on my 1998 vauxhall vectra. I have done the paperclip test and ive got the code 0335 i just hope i have not damaged the crankshaft as when i was in blackpool the other weekend i mounted an unexpected kerb with sum speed!!!!!!!!!

Hitting a curb will not damage the crankshaft. --67.175.147.74 22:37, 1 June 2007 (UTC)


"In a V engine each crankpin usually serves two cylinders, one in each cylinder bank." The term 'usually' is quite arguable: I'd say that over the past 50 or 60 years, american V8 and V6 production has produced many hundreds of millions of 'unshared crankpin' V type engines, which quantity amounts to the more prevalent condition (versus a few thousand marine/industrial designs).mmmmna (talk) 00:08, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

I read this article to find out what a "big end" is. The article unfortuately fails to define this, even though it discusses big end throughout. Please insert a definition and an arrow on the figure showing it. Please define "little end" in comparison. Thank you.Hambleton (talk) 03:27, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
