A good number of factors contribute to crank shaft position failure and very often, this failure with the crankshaft sensor will bring about problems with engine timing. Take a look at this common signs if your crank shaft sensor has gone bad.
You notice this when the engine speeds up, there engine tries to be adjusted to spark timing and fuel injection. Without the crankshaft sensor sending accurate input, the ECU can’t make these adjustments as well as it should. When this happens the result in slow or uneven acceleration.
When the engine timing information isn’t accurate, fuel injection won’t happen efficiently as it should. The implication is that the engine will need to use more gas especially drives.
Because of combustion disruption, one or more cylinders may mi fire this is largely a result of proper spark timing. You begin to notice brief stutter in the engine.
Your engine begins to runs rough or even vibrates when on idle,this condition may be caused by poor spark timing.
HARD STARTING OR NO STARTING
Without the proper supply of fuel, it might be hard to get your engine started without proper timing. When the crankshaft sensor has completely failed, and isn’t sending a signal to the ECU at all, then the computer component wudnt send signal of fuel supply to the injectors. This will leave you unable to start the car.
