Default CKP/TDC Sensor Troubleshoot: How-to

Someone asked so I thought I would post this up here...

First, the sensor on the 5g is located behind the crank pulley and requires a full timing belt job to get to it, so... you should be sure it's really the source of all your problems before you go swapping it out to see if it's the problem. Why would it be a problem? I have yet to have one fail but I've heard of it... and of course you could have a wiring issue.

Symptoms:
- failure to start even though you have spark, fuel, and good cam timing
- DTC P0335 (CKP circuit malfunction), DTC P0336 (range/perf. problem), DTC P1361 (intermittent interruption), or DTC P1362 (no signal)

How do you get to it? Looking down into the engine bay, between the valve cover and fender well on the driver's side, you can just barely see it:



The sensor itself has a pigtail a few inches long that connects to a engine harness connector and metal stay about halfway up the backside of the motor along the timing belt cover. It's a PITA to get to but easier than the sensor itself.

Once you can get to it, here's the troubleshooting info from the manual:





I also put together this basic how-to if you're not familiar with using a multimeter:



Hopefully this will help some of you...

Hi does the CKP/TDC sensor have anything to do with the distributor?
