Crank position sensor


G'Day all, has anyone had issues with the crankshaft position sensors. Had a code 0335 come up which is for the above sensor. I have a complete workshop manual for the beast which runs through a fairly comprehensive test but i would be interested to know if it is a common fault. Only 50000 k's onthe clock, 2005 ST.
The engine has "coughed" for lack of a better word a few times over the last week. I have done 2000 klms in the last week though.
Cancelled the code and it hasn't come back yet, fingures crossed.
I am a qualified mechanic but i have been out of the trade for too long to keep current with all the latest technoligical advancements, give me a carby and a dizzy any day of the week.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Hi,

The crank position sensor problem was issued under a formal recall by Nissan Australia depending on the model xtrail you drive.

Please check the Recall Thread for details and match-up your xtrail VIN chassis number against the given range.

Yes, it is a common problem with the xtrail.

Re: Crank position sensor


Just had my two sensors changed,and to reach the crank position sensor,you have to remove the air cleaner assembly and lean over the side of the engine to reach it a lousy job for sure.Try and talk them into changing the cam sensor also,although it is easy to reach,being on the back of the head.had to pay for mine $56 each plus labour.Dealer trying to tell me that i have a faulty crank sensor with out any codes appearing,i find this a little puzzling but went along with diagnosis even though i think it is fuel.Mechanics had said that they have had faults with both sensors on some vechicles but not both at once.cheers at least yours is known and the fix is free

If your x-trail is a 2005st you are well and truely out of the warranty recall for the crank sensor.My x-trail is a 2003St and my vin number is about 12000 more than the period of the recall and the recall is nov 2003 mine x-trail was made in sept 2003.cheers

Ray,

The year of the car does not impact on a recall warranty service, it will have to be serviced under that recall free of charge if it falls within the recall range and Nissan haven't done the recall for it for one reason or another.

Re: Crank position sensor


A article in the melbourne herald sun states,a owner of a x-trail claimed he had three crank sensors fail in his x-trail,and had been stopped twice on the side of the road with a dead engine.He asked was this a well known problem,the answer from smithy the expert was no.You would not think anybody could have this much bad luck?

When i got mine changed,after 5 1/2 years and 130ks i asked the mechanic at the dealer ship how many had been done and he replied only a handfull,and most were on vechicles with some time and distance travelled on them.The mechanic also said that this was a different one to the original,whatever that meant.Maybe brand or upgraded in some way.Have had no problem with the vechicle at all since.I wonder has this been much of a problem to esky owners on this site .cheers

Unfortunately my VIN # is about 30,000 too high outside the recall range, so there's probably no point me hassling Nissan to try and get mine covered under recall or warranty, even though warranty is over by 2 years emoticon It was cheap enough to fix myself, anyway... The money I saved I ended up buying some workshop ramps (so I can fix the cam-position sensor when it fails; it's the same part number and 2 sensors come in the pack anyway!)
