    Re: 98 Catera Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement - Cranks Won't Start

    Y;all can add me to the list of satisfied "customers", if you will. I've been reading these replys for about a year and a half, afraid of anything electronic. Yesterday I'd had enough. Had the new sensor for over a year and dang it it,s going in today. Took me less than an hour, and my cat was running again !! I disconnected the old one from the harness,un bolted it underneath. Left the old one in there after cutting both heads off, fished the new one up, next to the exhaust heat shield, zip tied it to the antilock box and BAM, 1st turn of the key, it started after almost 2 years of sitting !

    Don't be afraid of this fix ! Now i'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner !!
    Easy peazy.

    I don't own a Catera, but from the picture, it looks like it runs down behind the engine. If I had to guess, I'd say transmission vent tube.

    He is correct. Tranny Vent Tube.

    In that case, K man, before you ask, that end of the vent tube doesn't attach to anything.

    Great shot except for the fact that it's upside down. The brake lines are actually on top. That part it the ABS Pump. The EBTCM is the part consisting of the darker aluminum and the black plastic. The small diagram sucks but it shows the unit separated. The EBTCM is on the right. It has a large cable connector on the front and a small connector underneath. It's a royal PITA to remove. The trick is to remove one of the screws that attach it to the whole assembly's mounting bracket so you can tilt it for access to the EBTCM's screws. Not too much or you risk damaging the brake lines. There is no brake fluid in the EBTCM so you don't lose any brake fluid or brake function. The link is to one of the EBTCM repair shops.

    Re: 98 Catera Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement - Cranks Won't Start

    repair was successful, thread was very helpful....I'd like to note for that the bolt holding in the sensor is a size t8 external torx head-also, i didn't need to disconnect the bigger connector mentioned previously. Hopefully my reroute of the wire keeps this problem from coming back- i will be sure to chime in again if it does.

    thanks to all who responded.

    K man.
