Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement Guide \012\012\012The following is the \012procedure I developed to change the Crankshaft \012Position Sensor (CPS ) on my 1996 Saab 900S \0122.3 L NA. It is a very simple part to replace, and is also a cheap part, at $42 \012from the dealer I bought it from (who would've thought a dealer would have a \012part for a good price, let alone have the part I wanted at all icon_biggrin.gif). In \012case you were wondering, here is how I confirmed the CPS was not working \012correctly. The car would not start sometimes on hot days after short trips, it \012would turn off if it got too hot while driving (which was scary), I could hear \012the fuel pump working, I checked the started for the correct charge (it was fine \012as I thought), I already did the Neutral \012Safety Switch bypass as a \012precaution.
Here are the steps:
1) Make sure your engine bay is cool \012because you will be bumping into and touching the engine block and \012surrounding parts during this installation.
2) Locate the CPS. It is directly \012across from the radiator fan, about 8 inches down from \012the top of the fan. I can post pictures later tonight.
3) Using the largest \012torx screwdriver fitting that was supplied with the car, remove the single torx \012screw at the upper right of the CPS.
4) Now, before you remove the CPS, \012trace the wire it is connected to around the right side of the engine, and up \012under where the plenum/TB cover would reside. I have a custom intake so I did \012not have to remove anything to see this connection. There is a white plug with a \012red plastic box that penetrates the white plug perpendicularly. Simply pull the \012red box away from the large white connection to allow the CPS connection and \012wire to fall free.
5) Now, you can either patiently route the connection you \012just took apart back around the engine to get the old CPS out of there, or you \012can take as little time as I did and simply cut the wire in half and pull the \012ends out.
6) The CPS should now pull right out.
7) Quickly place the new \012CPS into the slot in the engine block, as to avoid \012any debris getting in there. MAKE SURE THE OLD O-RING COMES OFF AND THE NEW \012O-RING GOES ON the shaft of the new CPS before pushing the part in.
8) \012Retorx the screw.
9) Pull the end connection through all of the tubing and \012parts in your way. Find the metal spring-formed arch that holds the CPS wire \012from jingling about and with one hand, pry it open while you push the wire under \012the clip to secure it. This step can be tricky, but is very important to ensure \012the wire does not vibrate and prematurely malfunction.
10) Do the opposite of \012step 4
