    Default Crankshaft Sensor

    Is this a big thing? my vectra elite is a 2.2 2002 model. with 128k miles

    now ive been asked if its been changed or not as someone was told by an RAC that after a 120k the crankshaft sensor will go.

    any ideas?

    Why worry. In my opinion do not fix what aint broke. The sensor COULD pack in next week or next year, leave it till it breaks.

    are these likely to go though, someone is suggesting that because my vectra has done 128k miles its life is pretty much up soon. They have a bmw 528i on 168k mile and suggesting that the bmw engine would last till 400k

    A crankshaft sensor or cam sensor (in fact any sensor) is a component.

    If it fails, it fails. If it doesn't, then leave it alone.

    Some components fail, some don't. The majority will be in a car cradle to grave!


    The only component that I know of that has been programmed to fail after a finite number of uses is an ignitor module on a certain make of domesitc boiler. A certain manufacturer designs them to fail after 1 million ignition cycles.

    Different types of car, you can't compare them.

    If you have got that much dosh that you can afford to change it in case it breaks, go ahead.

    As i have already said " If it ain't broke don't fix it"
