Question Crankshaft Position Sensor Replace?

Ok, I downloaded the Engine mechanical service info. pdf and it won't open for me. I have a check engine light(cant remember the code) but it states:
"Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit". I have a new sensor and I am looking for instructions/procedure to replace this part. I understand it is on the back side of the motor between the motor and the firewall. How do i get to this? Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance:).

Do you recall if it was a 0335 or 0340?

it must have been 0335 cause the trouble code was for the crankshaft position sensor. 0340 is a camshaft p.s. related code.

Until a Specialist replies...I pulled this from your Service Manual Section EC - Engine Control System.

Hope this helps...

That sensor is very difficult to reach..the hardest part is accessing the bolt that hold the metal "stay" for this part....You can actually see it from underneath the left side of the Trany...If you have very small hands, you can get to the bolt from the left side of the engine, basically behind the exhaust manifold and down a bit...

sounds like you may have knocked off one of the connectors going to the trans. code is for a/t 1st signal. Check and make sure you didn't disconnect a connector or pinch a wire going to the trans.

Same Damn problem. Car shot off on freeway, barely made it off, then all lights came on check engine, Cam shaft pos sensor, What the heck is nissans problem? that is VERY unsafe to just be shut off from all power. They need to recall all these sensors.
