Its in the distributor and you may end up replacing the whole distributor cuz I don't think its something you can just remove.

Following is suggested repair.

Disconnect the distributor connector, and check the sensor for resistance. You will need a manual to know which pins to check and for the resistance spec for your vehicle, but it's usually < 1000 ohms for a functional unit. It could be a loose connection or damaged wiring, but a bad sensor is more likely. No replacement sensor is available.

If sensor is defective, buy a new ($$$), aftermarket ($$)or used ($)replacement distributor and replace unit. Check ebay for aftermarket and used units. Check car-part.com for used units near your location.

good luck

I was gonna check to make sure, but I think in 2000 that sensor is located down at the crank pulley, combined with the CKF sensor.

If you're checking for loose connections, it won't hurt to check both places. Look for a wire coming up along the back side of the lower timing cover, there's probably a plug located somewhere around the brake master cylinder.

I think JimBlake could be right here. i swear I remember reading something in my Haynes about that sensor being located down at the crank pulley on the 2000-2002 models. I am at work now, i'll check once i get home. I know Haynes is not Helm, but I think they even showed a picture of it.

Default RE: Cylinder Position sensor

it is located in the dizzy.....
try something first.. make sure all the connections are properly connected and tight, including plug wires , also, believe it or not,, chk to see if the coil shield is installed and installed properly,there is a service news about this , that if shield is missing or not in a proper position it will kick the cyp code p1381 p-1382....then clear the code and test drive it,, if code comes back, you need to chk the cyp sensor at distr,,
unplug the 4 wire connector at dizzy, ( key off ) if you look at the connector with the nipple up, you need to chk resistance ( using an ohmmeter ) between the 2 terminals farthest to the right ,, it should be between 800-1500 ohms. ,, If not, replace the distributor housing..
if it is ok,,,,, chk for continuity to ground between each terminal ( same ones ) and body ground .If there is continuity replace the distributor .
if no continuity then we have to chk at the ecu connector .
So,, do these tests and let us know ..

BlkCurrantKord was right from the start.
dh got on here and beat me to the punch. With better info I might add. I was going to confirm it is in the distributor and a non replaceable part. Try the tests dh posted & let us know how it goes.

JimBlake: I think it is actually the TDC sensor that is combined with the CKP sensor that you are referring to.

Yeah, it's the TDC & CKF combined down at the crank pulley. That's whatI get for trying to remember instead of looking it up.
