Crank Sensor BAD???

6648 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  robb5150
Is there any way to test if my car's crank sensor (AKA engine speed sender) that works with the RPM's is OK or faulty??

Apparently OBD 1 code 2111 refers to this sensor, but I got notice that this code will be thrown by the car's computer if it tested with the engine off, but my car doesn't start and I need to find a way to diagnose this.

Any help??

Thanks for your help!

I have spark at the ignition coil, but I'll have to check the distributor...
The car will crank OK, but it will not start.
****This morning it started for the first time. Very weird, it kept the RPM's around 200-300, stalling like crazy. There was a heavy unburned fuel odor. I tried accelerating slowly and when it was about 450 RPM's, it got worse. I heard all the relays clicking going on/off under the steering wheel, so I switched the engine off...

Could it be the distributor?

Any other ideas??

Thanks again!
