Crankshaft Position Sensor... among other frustrations
I try not to bug you good folks, but I'm in a bind. She's been down since Monday now. Started with a 'simple' lift, right? Just a 3" suspension. Granted, I'd never done one before, but the kit said 7-8 hours. But I'm mechanically inclined and NORMALLY pretty damned good with vehicle stuff.
Normally. This week is not my week.
The lift took 2 FULL days and I'm talking sunup to sun down Monday and sunup till 8 Tuesday. New England winters aided in the snapping of many bolts and other fun. Anyway...
Go to take it for a test run/victory lap and I note at start up she's running like she's down 2 cylinders or so. Read out says Crankshaft PS (P0016), Ignition Coil(P2308), Random Misfire(P0300) which is part of the coil issue, and Camshaft Position Sensor. So I buy the parts, figuring to replace the Crankshaft Position Sensor first, as I know it can cause the rest of the system problems downline.
My issue? I can't find the damned thing. I've search on here and in JF and on Google. Been on top of and under her multiple times. She's a '06 Rubi, so I see and feel the breather tube which is at the 12 o'clock position and everything I've read says the CPS is around the 1 or 2 o'clock. Another thing is the pics I've seen show two tabs to hold it against the bell housing and a wiring harness, mine has a single tab and no harness. I did find on another smaller forum that they talked about a 4 cylinder had it up from on the right hand side somewhere?
Like I say, I'm lost. And have learned my lesson. I'm buying a manual once she's running right.
