Symptoms[edit]

Symptoms of a faulty crankshaft position sensors include the engine refusing to start (obviously), but also includes the engine mysteriously ceasing to run for no apparent reason, and often with no OBD code thrown; shutting off the ignition switch and starting the engine will some times work for a few minutes, or even a few days, and then the engine will suddenly quit running again. The number of failures increase as the sensor degrades. Also, there is usually no pattern regarding heat: a car might not start even if it is cold, not just fail to start if it is hot. --Desertphile (talk) 23:40, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
