SOURCE: 2004 3.8 Chevy impala sensor

The crankshaft positions sensor is located behind the crankwheel on the passenger side of the engine. In order to replace it or at least examine it, a person would need to remover the crankwheel with a puller that can be rented out at Autozone. Just ask for a harmonic balancer puller. Remove the front right tire and place firmly on jackstands. The crankshaft pulley WILL NOT loosen by just turning the bolt. This is a two person job. Caddycorner to the starter, there is a small plastic plate cover that covers the driveplate/flexplate. Remove the two bolts and pull the cover off. Have one person position a screwdriver into the ring gear teeth and have another remove the pulley bolt. Its EXTREMELY TIGHT and the best way to remove it is with a large rachet and a breaker bar. Once the bolt is removed, take the puller and position accoridngly. The threaded holes are not on the surface but inside the pulley itself. Place large bolt in center of the puller and place the pointed or flat tip on center of the large bolt and place. Take three very small screws or bolts that came with the puller and position all three in place. Once all this is done begin turning the bolt in the middle of the puller clockwise. This will take alot of arm strength and anywhere from 15-30 min to do. Once the wheel has come off, carefully pry off the sensor cover which is another piece of plactic. Once the cover is off, carefully remove the sensor and examine or replace as needed. Installation is reverse of removal. Hope this helps

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on the 2006 Chevy Impala SS? I'm trying to replace it?

At the front of the engine on the passenger side. Behind the power steering pump. They rarely go bad. Usually the wire breaks at the plug. To date, I have never replaced one. Again, it is usually the wire.

Where is the camshaft position sensor located on a 2006 impala ss

If you have the SS remove the fues panel cover and take the two nuts off at the top of the pannle lift it up and look under it you will see the thin wiring harness running down between the strut tower and the behind the serpentine belt follow it down to a plug-in lift to unplug the clip and you will find the cam position sensor there is one 8mm screw holding in place. Remove that screw wiggle the cam position sensor left and right and it will pull out replace it with a new one and reverse the procedure. The car will crank but not start if this part is bad.

Where is the idle sensor in the 2000 chevy impala

There is no idle sensor on the 2000 Chevrolet Impala, according to my online resource.

But, there is the following that senses rpm of the engine and thus the idle speed when the Throttle Position Sensor is at 5% or the accelerator pedal is not depressed:

Crankshaft Position Sensor Operation Engine speed is a very important input to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Crankshaft speed and position are the basis for many calculations made by the computer. Crankshaft position values are transmitted to the computer by pickup coils also known as Permanent Magnet (P/M) generators, Hall Effect sensors or optical sensors. The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) also known as engine speed sensor is typically located in proximity to the crankshaft.
In addition, the PCM uses the CKP sensor in conjunction with the camshaft position sensor to calculate and perform misfire diagnostics.
Related Symptoms
  • A No Start / Intermittent Start condition - Can be caused by a faulty crankshaft position sensor due to loose connections, bad grounds, high resistance in the circuit, or opens in the circuit.
  • Engine Misfire Diagnostic Trouble Codes
NOTE: Engine Mechanical conditions can also create the same or similar symptoms. (Don't overlook basic mechanical integrity).
