Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement Walkthrough.

So I just had to replace my crankshaft position sensor after the truck suddenly stalled and threw a P0335 code at me.
The sensor was pretty cheap at $36 from the local Nissan dealer. Anyway on to the walkthrough......

1. Remove passenger side front wheel.



2. Remove inner wheel well cover. You could probably manage without this step but it does make it much easier.



3. Locate the sensor. It is covered by a rubber boot.





4. Pull the boot back to reveal the sensor. The bolt is a 10mm bolt. TIP!! Remove the connector before undoing the bolt.



5. It's a bit tricky getting the ratchet on because of the trans dipstick tube and a brake line but it's not too bad.



6. Remove sensor.



7. Replace sensor, replace bolt, re-connect wiring, replace inner wheel well cover, put wheel back on. Job Done!!

Old and new sensor side by side.



Hope this helps someone

Besides sudden stall and code, we're there any other precursors in the weeks prior? Did you ru. Thru any trails or water?

No it's not blood! lol, not sure what that was.

Truck has been running great but I did have to replace the camshaft position sensor a couple of months ago. When that went, some of the research I did said that when the camshaft sensor goes it is usually followed by the crankshaft sensor and visa versa.
No trail running either but I do work on an island in the Gulf of Mexico, a lot of salt air.

The camshaft sensor was a tough one because of the location and it was about twice the price. I also have 185,000 on the clock.

Hope the info helps!

I believe the sensor sits atop the bell housing on the 4 banger. If you google the P0335 code on this site there are a few bits of info on the 4 cyl.
