How To Replace Crankshaft Position Sensor 2004-08 Ford F-150

Created on: 2020-09-01

This video shows you how to install a new crankshaft position sensor on your 2004-2008 Ford F150.

Tools needed

  • Torque Wrench

    8mm Socket


If you come underneath the front of the vehicle, you're gonna see your crank right up front of the engine, and then right attached to the engine's right where the crank sensor is going to be, it's going to be located right near your tensioner as well.

Looking right up along behind the crank area, you're going to be able to see the sensor. There's of course going to be wiring leading to it. I'm going to remove the wiring before I go and remove the sensor itself. Right up along the top area where you can see my index finger, there's a little squeeze tab, squeeze down on that and then you should be able to pull this off.

Now we're going to move on to using our 8-millimeter socket and remove both of our mounting bolts. There's our other bolt. Go ahead and grab onto that sensor, give it a little wiggle and draw it away from the vehicle. There it is right up here, can see approximately where i want it to sit, should set right in there. That one's bottomed out, bottom out the other one and then we'll torque them to manufacturer's specifications. So now we're going to torque these to 62-inch-pounds. Once you have them torqued, go ahead and plug it back in. Make sure it clicks in, give it a nice wiggle and a tug, it needs to be 100% secured.
