Re: Crank position sensor


Which crank angle sensors are the best? Nissan or are Repco the same thing with different packaging. When car is warm it seems to stalling with a bit more frequency on startup so i think i'll get some fairly soon.

Re: Crank position sensor


Picked up 2 Nissan crank angle sensors this week, price was $145 for both. I also priced an oxygen sensor which was $216.

Planning to change them at 130k service unless they cause problems prior.

Re: Crank position sensor


A few weeks ago, paid $126 for 2 from Nissan dealer after being quoted $160 initially. Always ask for a better price and you may surprised that they usually oblige. Telling them that they are $44 ea (plus $9.95 post)on ebay may help, though I didn't at the time.

Re: Crank position sensor


Hi all

Would appreciate your advice if possible please. Our mainly trouble free exy has justed started to stall when stationary and cough when accelerating, I.e. brief lull in power before acceleration starts again. From reading this thread it sound like replacing the crank and cam sensors with genuine nissan parts could fix the issue, however, I note that my exy's ecu has not recorded any fault code, I.e. I get 0000.

My question is, Has anyone fixed a similar problem with their exy by replacing these 2 sensors even though the ecu was not showing a fault code related to these sensors?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Crank position sensor


Certainly did Chris. My T30 X-Trail showed no error codes and just became difficult to start then wouldn't start at all one day. Replaced the sensors and all was good again.
It's not an expensive fix so just go for it I'd say.

Thanks Toddy.

Got the 2 sensors from Nissan Morley for $110 and fitted them. Took about an hour. Car runs, and no sign of the issues reoccurring on a brief 15 minute run - so hopefully that's job done. Could not have done it without the fantastic info on this board.

Here's my key tips for replacing the crank sensor (summarised from notes here and from elsewhere:

-See image of the location of the sensor on this blog http://home.exetel.com.au/frolektrics/replace-the-crank-position-and-and-cam-position-sensors-on-an-xtrail-t30.html (I did not see an equivalent photo on this forum)

-You do the work on the sensor leaning over the front of the car, i.e. with your stomach over the hood latch. If your short like me you'll need something to stand on. Placing an old towel or pillow over the latch makes this more comfortable!

-There is a bracket holding a wiring harness and a couple of hoses that's held on with a single 12mm bolt that in the way to get access to the sensor with your right hand, undo this bolt and the bracket can be moved out the way giving enough room for your right hand to unbolt the sensor and get a good hold of it to pull it out.

- Use a 6 inch (150mm) extension on your ratchet wrench to undo the bolt on the crank sensor - I don't think it could be done without this.

- Lay a towel down on the channel your putting your arm in to work on the sensor - there's lots to scratch your arm on on that pathway, and I think I cut down on the lost skin quite considerably doing this (still got a few scratches though).

- While you're working on the sensor with your right arm, hold a very small bright torch over the back of the motor (i.e. between the motor and firewall) with your left hand to see what your doing - the light on my samsung galaxy s3 phone was perfect for this.

- Leave the lead attached to the sensor until it's out, makes it easier to attach the new one as you can bring the old sensor and lead closer to the top of the motor to make the change.

Re:


Hi Chris,

Glad you got the problem sorted.

Don't forget to re-set the ECU if you haven't do so already. This is explained in Richard's post HERE

Re:


Wow people have really been charged a lot for cam+crank sensors now... I bought mine last year for $75 I think... for those of you buying them lately for $120 upwards are they the metal canister type ones or are they all black plastic? I think the metal ones are more durable but a bit more expensive. They are still cheaper than aftermarket from Nissan though, the Tridon ones were more than $200 each!

For what it's worth I ordered mine from nissanparts.com.au - no affiliation at all just a customer... I think it's a Nissan dealer on the gold coast
