It's usually on the front of the engine by crank pulley, cylindrical with one wire coming off it. Points at the crank damper. Some are other places but I'm not sure on this one. Try Googling crank sensor, 97 firebird.

this issue sounds like u have a bad ignition control module,located directly under ur coilpak. thats wat they do wen they get hot aftr driving a while, shut off while driving(u must b loosing spark to ur plugs)an restarting wen cooled off. one way to check this for urself would b to purchase a spark checker at autozone or pepboys fairly inexpensive, an wen ur car dies, open the hood remove one sparkplug wire install tester between plug an wire, or wire an a good ground an have someone crank engine while u look at the tester bulb,if it lights up an pulses uspark is good,if it doesnt lite up at all while cranking engine ur spark is gone an thats ur problem possibly crank a sensor or the ignition module we mentioned earlier. try mounting the spark checker before the engine dies so u know wat a good spark will look like on that checker..... hope this helps good luck

Was told cam postion sencor might be bad? Replace not it! now was told my autozone guy might be crank sencor? But need a pix or something i can't find it? your help is needed! Thank you Darren


well i dont know what year is but the crank position sensor is locate it behind crank pulley in order to have acces to the sensor you ne to remove the pulley first. Note when the crank sensor is bad there should be no fire at your sparks. before keep spending more money dont know if you checked for gas coming to the engine.

While driving my 1993 929 down the road it just stopped running...had it checked out was told ti would be best to get a new motor and got a second opinion and was told to get a timing belt and fuel pump....


before going crazy , check the crank sensor out, a bad crank sensor will cause timing to be out of sync. more then likely engine will not start. or irregular rpm function if vehicle starts at all. it controls timing and sends info to pcm. if a crank sensor fails while driving the engine will die out. have scanned if check engine light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all.
first of all, if crank sensor is ok, then you can check the timing belt.

97 Jeep Cherokee, drove it all the way home and it died -no power


Biggest problem on that truck is the crank sensor, it will fail intermittantly and give you the problem you describe. It is located in the bellhousing of the transmission directly behind the cylinder head and below the firewall. I can tell you how to check it, but since you are throwing parts at the problem, put a crank sensor on it. I'm willing to bet that will take care of it. They usually come with a paper spacer on the bottem to keep it from contacting the flywheel, and if it does, just set the spacer on the flywheel and tighten the bolt, if there is no spacer, make sure the sensor isn't touching the flywheel or it will break the sensor as soon as you turn the key. Hope this helps.
Good luck
