So, is the crank bolt underneath the camshaft sensor? "A numb or a hole"; Won't it become misaligned again once the engine is re-started and the cam starts moving?

So do I need to replace the crankshaft sensor?

I'm not meaning to beat a dead horse here, I just can't understand these f*** ing cars

John... relax..have a beer or two.. don't stress over it. (I know.. easy for me to say while mines running well)

The crankshaft sensor is under the crank pulley. This is the bottom most pulley on the belts, it is a double pulley to drive both belts. Look at the waterpump and the crank pulley is straight down from it.

The bolt is in the center of the pulley, there is no way to misalign it or the pulley. The pulley slides on to the end of the crank and there is a little metal tab that keeps it "keyed" in the right position. The metal piece is called a Keyway.

If you see a nub on the cam gear, replace the cam sensor. If you see a hole in the cam gear, fill it with a new magnet. When the magnet passes the sensor, the PCM knows where the valve train is. The only thing you could misalign here is the crank sensor. Measure carefully, make a template out of cardboard... something to make sure your new crank sensor slots are in the same spot as the originals.

John, you'll need to jam a tool into the flywheel to hold the motor while you break the bolt loose with a LONG breaker bar if you don't have air tools.

Rumor has it that the shaft tolerances on the 92'* were different, so your HB may come off easier than mine did.

No, the 92 balancer is still on there pretty good.

The crank pulley bolt is the highest torqued fastener on the entire car.
About 250 ft-lbs so you will need about a 3 foot piece of 1" pipe to slip over a 1/2" rachet and then really put your weight into it.

I have almost never seen a Cam Sensor go out...

Is the Magnet( Interrupter ) still in the Cam sproket?

If you already have a new cam sensor, install it and see if it does any good... If you still have a code 41 you'll need to look elsewhere for the problem... Too Bad you aren't my neighbor
