Crank, knock and cam sensors are 3 different sensors

Crank sensor will be off the front of the engine hanging out of the timing cover @ the 12:00 position

Knock sensor i'm not 100% sure on will be bolted to the side of the block under the intake somewhere my guess will be around the middle

Cam angle sensor went in the hole the distributor is mounted in (not used on a EL as it had a distributor and single coil pack)

i think all this info is true and correct im sure ill get told other wise Ill try and get a Photo of where the sensor is mounted later

Cheers there’s seems to be no sigh of a crank sensor ever being at the front of the motor at the position that you have said next will to be looking at the knock sensor. Would the crank sensor may be put some where else as my friends falcon is the same as myn and his doesn’t have the crank sensor at the front either. I’m hoping that one of these sensors is preventing car from firing as it wines over but would fire have replaced dizzy the cap inhibitor switch all relays and fuseable links and so far have had no sucess

knock sensor shouldnt stop the car running i dont think, there there to help prevent pinging/knocking.


the sensor is hard to spot is only 2 wires hanging out of the timing cover

your car is EL isnt it? just done some googling and they don't have the sensor in the timing cover all the sensing is done through the distributor

does your interior lamp work? ... not long fixed up a EL that "ran out of fuel and died", so nephew said lol. turned out to be the CLRT fuse [top left think it was on the fuse panel] had blown. replaced & car ran as previously.
