EMISSIONS AND ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEMS
CRANKSHAFT POSITION (CKP) SENSOR | REPLACEMENT
- Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal (see Chapter 5).
- On all models except 3.5L V6 models, loosen the right front wheel lug nuts. On all models, raise the front of the vehicle and place it securely on jackstands. On all models except 3.5L V6 models, remove the right front wheel, and then remove the smaller access panel below the larger fender splash shield (see illustrations). On 3.5L V6 models, remove the engine under-cover.
REMOVAL (Refer to illustration 6.4)
NOTE: The CKP sensor is located at the lower rear corner of the timing chain cover, behind the crankshaft pulley.
- Put the No. 1 cylinder at Top Dead Center (TDC) (see Chapter 2A).
- Disconnect the electrical connector from the CKP sensor (see illustration).
- Unscrew the CKP sensor mounting bolts and remove the sensor.
INSTALLATION (Refer to illustrations 6.6 and 6.9)
NOTE: If you're installing a new CKP sensor, the new sensor comes with a special alignment jig that, according to the manufacturer, is available only with a new sensor. You might, however, be able to find an aftermarket tool that does the same thing.
If, on the other hand, you removed the CKP sensor simply to access some other component, like the timing chain, use the alternate method of aligning the CKP sensor included here.
- Install a 6 mm x 18 mm (0.23 x 0.7 inch) bolt in the threaded hole provided in the crankshaft pulley (see illustration) and screw it into the timing chain cover.
- Install the CKP sensor but don't tighten the sensor mounting bolts.
- If you're installing a new CKP sensor, align the sensor with the special alignment jig (included with the new sensor) in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
With the alignment jig in place, tighten the CKP sensor bolts securely, and then remove the alignment jig.
- If you're installing the old CKP sensor, look at the sensor trigger wheel, or timing place. At about ten o'clock there is a blank spot on the edge of the timing plate, where there are no teeth.
From this blank area, count five teeth in a counterclockwise direction, and then, using a straightedge, draw a straight line from the center of this fifth tooth through the center of the crankshaft pulley (see illustration).
Position the centerline of the CKP sensor with the line that you made, and then tighten the sensor bolts securely.
HOOD LATCH AND RELEASE CABLE | REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
HOOD LATCH (Refer to illustrations 8.1 and 8.2)
- Open the hood and scribe a line around the latch to aid alignment when installing, and then remove the retaining bolts securing the hood latch to the radiator support (see illustration). Remove the latch.
- Squeeze the cable retainer to release the cable from the latch assembly, and then disengage the cable end plug from the latch (see illustration).
- Installation is the reverse of removal.
RELEASE CABLE (Refer to illustration 8.9)
- Working in the engine compartment remove the hood latch and disconnect the hood release cable from the latch (see Steps 1 and 2).
- Detach the two release cable clips from the radiator grille opening panel reinforcement.
- Loosen the wheel lug nuts. Raise the vehicle and place it securely on jackstands. Remove the left front wheel. Remove the inner fender splash shield. (see Section 10).
