    I have a bad crankshaft position sensor but when I bought the new sensor I realized that there's some clearance issues with the crankshaft pulley. Is there some trick to installing the sensor that I'm missing?

    First make sure you have the right part. It is possible that your vibration damper
    is worn to the point where it might have shifted a little. The installation is quite
    simple you shouldn't be having any problems with it unless something else is out
    of spec.

    I ordered the 2 volumes service manual and found out that when I tried installing the crankshaft position sensor I took out the plastic positioner which the manual says I should have kept it in. So maybe that's the reason it didn't work.
