Ran an OBD sensor thing and got this once I got it unstuck. What's the damage? Easy fix?

You might be able to order one of those sensors and install it yourself, but I would watch a YouTube video first and see if it is something you think you can handle.

Crackshaft position sensor is kind of a common thing that needs replacing on these. I don't think it's a horribly complicated job.

Is the motor running well otherwise? Sometimes people get that code when their timing belt fails.

Does it run well, or are you just pulling codes?

Treat the patient, not the labs.

I wonder how similar it is to an Accord crankshaft position sensor...



...or in fact an Odyssey crank position sensor?

I'd say it runs like boiling shit. VTM-4 light kicks on almost instantly, can't hold idle, stalls. Learned about parking mid winter and letting the ground thaw so she was stuck in a hole about 8 inches deep, it was a pain to get her in gear and out of there. Definitely wouldn't put it on the road, but that's the only error I'm getting and all signs of a bad crankshaft position sensor are pointing directly at my Pilot. I'm gonna start with the CPS and hopefully that'll be it, but I know the pump and timing belt desperately need a change.

It runs like a fat man. Not very well. She's been through a lot, I almost gave up on it and was gonna scrap it until I ran a test.

I'll definitely watch a couple videos first. I haven't ordered one yet but I will and me and my bro in law are gonna tackle it.
