Yup, it's called a crank sensor, but it's located behind the front camshaft pulley. Not a simple thing to replace because you have to remove the front sprocket, which means that you have to ensure that you don't change the valve timing when you replace it.:lol: you'll never find it listed for these cars because they're called CRANKSHAFT sensor... just so you know; same difference though
^^^ Heres what it does; The CRANK or crankshaft angle sensor signal is used to determine the timing for fuel injection and ignition timing. It is also used to generate the engine RPM signal.How to test the sensor if it's still function good, even though the resin melted? Do you know what is the function really? If the sensor malfunctions does it cause the engine seize up?
Sorry for thread hijack but did you get those headlights done? lol.If i remember right its going to be a 2-wire variable reluctant sensor (VRS) which means its going to produce its own voltage depending on the speed of the reluctor wheel locating on the crankshaft. unplug the sensor and get your self a voltage meter, hook up the meter to the two wires it is not polarity sensitive so don't worry about which one is positive and which one is negative. Keep all wires clear of any moving components and have someone crank the engine. The reading you should be getting is atleast .5 Volts upon start up.
