The Crankshaft Position Sensor is usually installed inside distributor, is one of the most important Sensor in the ignition system. Normally crankshaft position sensors have Hall- type, Magnetic-electric type and Photoelectric type. Its functions are as following: first, it can detect engine speed, therefore, it also known as the rotational Speed Sensor. Second, it can detect the position of top dead center of piston, so also know as TDC sensor.
Sometimes, the sensor may become burnt or worn out. The most likely causes of crankshaft Position Sensor failure are exposure to extreme heat. Many modern crankshaft sensors are closed units and therefore will not be damaged by water or other fluids. When it goes bad, it stops transmitting the signal which contains the vital data for the ignition and other parts in the system.
