So if you are here because this job has turned into a massive pain in the ass. I have a 2011 Silverado. 1. Make sure you get a sensor that does not need to be re-learned. AC Delco, Standard, and a few others make OEM parts that do not require a relearn do your research or ask the auto parts shop that has the part. If it needs to be re-learned you will need a scan reader tool to perform a relearn. Not everyone has a $1,000 dollar scan reader so just get the sensor that is direct OEM replacement, I've never done the manual relearn but just get the part that doesn't need a re-learn. 2. Remove the passenger side tire and remove the plastic wheel well cover. Why? When you take it off you get direct access to the sensor and bolts and you don't have to mangle your hands or if get easily frustrated (especially with a starter). I did mine with a pretty good extension but it was 15mm for the starter bolts and 10mm for the sensor bolt. I was able to get in right where I needed to and really didn't have to take the starter out completely. I removed the starter bolts and adjusted it down so I could get to the sensor. By removing the wheel well I didn't need to get into a fight with my ratchet (because that's a fight I will lose). Its an extra step but it also allowed me to inspect that area etc, doing it this way also gives you better access to inspecting the wires to make sure they are mangled. It's so much better than trying to do it on your back.

Hope this helped!

Unplugged crankshaft while doing manifold gaskets on 5.7 v8 chevy.
Starts up and run but now is running rough and throwing P0300. Did plugs, set time and installed new distrubor. Is it possible the crank needs to be relearned to clear code?

Gotta be the worst videos out. “Make sure we didn’t unplug anything like a sensor “ lmao

Thank you for taking the time to share. Who would put the sensor behind the starter so that it would take this long to replace it.

Chef Zack Kasmar says:

After replacing a crank sensor is it necessary to do a Relearn with a capable scan tool? (07 Silverado 1500 (new body style). Thank you!

Justin Standifer says:

I would’ve changed that starter too. Rust bucket.

size tools needed?

Jose Cardenas says:

Will this cause p1381 code on my 2000 Silverado 4.3? And keep it from starting?
