Where is the crankshaft sensor on a VW sharan ? – Cars & VehiclesReport
No such thing as Crankshaft sensor on VW Sharan. It has a Knock Sensor, dose the same thing as C/S but they call it Knock Sensor as it is not fitted to C/S or pully area. It bolts to the front of the engine near the gearbox and has a 10mm bolt holding it in place. 3 wires come from it at the front of the engine on a white plastic connector.
Strange as I replaced one this morning on a VW Sharon, ruling out any component without knowing the engine code is totaly worthless.
and saying a knock sensor is the same as a crankshaft sensor is total bs.
I suggest you only give advice when you know what your talking about my friend.
