Cruiser . . . Cps . . ?

Recommended Posts


You replied to an early Dec post of mine regarding my '87 Laredo 

that occassionally stops running (starts up again cold).  You suggested a 

possible crankcase position sensor.   Haven't gotten around to replacing it

because of location (in)accessability and early winter cold in Michigan.  

I noticed this pic on another post.  Might this be what it is?

Thanks,  Bruski

Yes it is.


If you click on the link in my signature, you should find a post and hopefully it has a photo of the proper wire harness routing along with a mod for increasing the sensor's output, and proper testing procedures. . 


It's not fun to replace. 11mm bolt heads.

A 3/8" ratchet, a universal joint, and a looooong (like 3') extension will make it a lot easier to change.


^^  Take the time to run a bead of electricians tape around the universal joint and socket, especially if the plastic hole cover is MIA. Also stuff a rag into the hole. You do not want the socket and/or universal joint falling into the tranny. It's not fun retrieving it. Not at all.

Aggravating as a baby monkey on crack for the first 45 mins. I did not have 3' worth of extensions to work with. Had me wanting to cuss.

Once I got the bright idea of using the socket swivel (universal joint), the remaining 10 minutes had me wanting to cuss about not figuring out to use the swivel before then.
