    Hello,
    My name is Ed Simmons and i received my SHO in a last will and testament from a neighbor that passed away.
    I always admired his car and i guess he wanted me to have it.
    Much to the dismay of several of his adult children..... he also left me a significant amount of his estate in $$$

    That being said this car is pretty sweet but does need a few things.

    A crankshaft sensor is first on my list to get it up and running..... it has a new transmission and sub frame assembly as well as front end suspension and steering parts.

    It is in amazing shape for its age and has the much sought after factory paint matching alloy wheels.

    I will be searching the forums for some parts i need so thank you for allowing me to join this SHO club.

    Your neighbor was wise; when he left you his car, he knew you would need some money.

    Good to have you aboard.

    OMG this is really rediculous.
    I cannot find a crancshaft position sensor for this car anywhere.
    I am thinking about selling it as is.
    Anyone here know of a good place to put this thing up? Craigslist?
    Ebay?
    letgo?
    FB marketplace?

    Find one and fix it. It's like a scavenger hunt. Maybe SHO source has some?

    Nope...... this search at times has consumed me and i do not have the time to devote to this. I love the car but really thought it would be a simple trip to the parts store for a sensor...... NOPE!! SMH

    there are used ones for sale if you post in the want to buy section (just to get your car running)
    Are you sure the crankshaft position sensor is bad?
    new ones can probably be found depending on how much you want to spend
    Shosource is working on a replacement part

    you can substitute supercoupe or ranger sensors if you don't mind doing the wrenching and finding the correct one.

    Is this an automatic or manual car? Contact Dan Barbush from Pittsburgh SV&HOdan on the forum. HE usually has some parts cars and is very reasonable in pricing.

    Here is another owner with the same problem. https://shoforum.com/index.php?threads/crankposition-sensor.139316/#post-1509904

    Contact him and get a used one if available. This is an issue currently. Some of us are looking for a solution but we are all busy as well.

    Tell us more about the car and why you think the crank position sensor is bad. When was it last running and what was done to it to try and fix it.

    My
    My mechanic of the last 15 years is one of the smartest mechanics i have ever used or known.
    He called in a friend that knows these engines and they came up with bad crankshaft sensor for the no spark situation... all other parts are new ignition module, coil pack, wires, cam sensor, etc.

    In other words, i am not guessing on this..... pretty much narrowed down to this impossible part.

    oh, and yes, i will buy a used one if it is good. either way i am most likely going to sell it as is running or not.

    Thanks for the info man!! I really appreciate it.

    I think if you request one you need to specify if it is manual or auto. I could be wrong but foggy memory says the auto sensor has a longer wire run. I think...

    Crank position sensors are the same between MTX and ATX. Spark plug wires were longer for the ATX cars.

    I've been forced to reuse crank sensors as they are no longer available. The most common problem of course is the water pump leaking on to it, shorting it out and killing the car. However, the car always starts again once the CPS has dried out. That leaves me with the impression that no permanent damage has been done to it.

    Not a solution 100% of the time, though. I could kick myself now: I've thrown away over 60 of them through the years.
