1. I can't think of any way this would be related to the crank sensor.
2. There's nothing that indicates that these problems are related in any
Since they're all unrelated, there's no way to predict from these
many future failures will occur or when they'll happen.
3,6. You're probably on the right track, but this code can also be caused
faulty thermostat or overheating.
If you have the capability of reading the freeze frame data, check the
temperature in the freeze frame data. A very high temperature
overheating. In this case, you should do a thorough check
of the cooling
system. A very low temperature (often -40) typically
indicates a faulty sensor.
A seemingly normal to a little low temperature
often indicates a thermostat
If you have no way to check freeze frame data, start with the cooling
audit. If okay, then your chances are good with replacing the
sensor. If the
thermostat isn't fairly new, I'd recommend replacing that
as well. It doesn't
cost much, is fairly easy to do, and it's better than
having it fail later.
4. Sounds like the correct sensor. I believe it has three wires going to
two for the PCM and one for the gauge.
5. It'll depend on the construction of the socket. Many deep sockets
the hex on the bottom 1" or so, leaving a circular portion
toward the top. This
circular portion typically won't fit over the
connector. A box wrench would be
preferable to open-end. With open-end,
you'll need to be *very*
rounding the corners of the
As a last tip, if you're replacing only the sensor, unpackage the new one
have it ready in a place you can easily reach while working on the
the radiator cap to release any pressure-- use extreme
caution if hot-- and
reinstall. Then remove the old sensor and quickly
screw the new one into place.
You'll lose only a very small amount of
coolant if you can get the new one
