OK, no response to initial enquiry, so I'll try a different tack. Just looked at thread re - crank angle sensor on a 2.8 which shows the crank angle sensor to be on the block, sensing pulley position. The advice I have been given is that on the 4.5, the crank angle sensor is part of the distributor assembly. Is this correct, as the sensor on the block makes more sense in sensing the angle of the crank.(?)
Does anyone out there have a picture from the TB45 manual showing the location of the sensor??
Would love some help here as the mechanic has had the vehicle for 4 weeks now and I'm getting withdrawl symptoms. He's trying to save me dough by looking for a secondhand dizzy as new is approx $1300 ex yapan.
All offers gratefully accepted !!
Cheers
Nige

Confirmed crank angle sensor is part of the dizzy.


Dizzy connected to the cam, cam connected to the crank (via a chain, but hey!).

TADA!

Roger to the above. Just wanted to know if the sensor could be removed and cleaned etc. Apparently its a sealed unit. Anyhow, thanks to another Patrol owner/forum member, I have another unit on the way. At least if this isn't the problem, its cheaper than a new one (ex - japan apparently!) to continue fault finding. This site has been a valuable tool for this and much other info. Thanks to all contributors.!!!

Hi, I know you had this problem years ago but I'm going through the same s&#t. How did you go with cleaning or was it a replacement job. I've got a TB45 deul fuel and it just dies after 15mins of driving. Been told it's getting to hot and shutting the car done. Can you please help with advice
