| | Crank Position Sensor Damage
I went for short test drive after getting my swap done. A small cap I have used to plug a heater hose bleed burst releasing coolant into the engine bay. The cap was directly above the portion of the harness the CPS branches off of.
After resolving the heater hose cap issue I started the car for another test drive. Right away something did not sound right. The car was idling rougher than normal. Within a minute the idle slowing deteriorated, and the motor would not rev without severe missing. Eventually it died and now refuses to start.
After pulling back the harness loom I found a good amount of moisture near my solder/heat shrink joints on the CPS wires.
I am am almost 100% convinced the CPS sensor itself has been damaged/shorted from the moisture. Can anyone confirm if this is a possibility, and is there any way to confirm it is bad before I purchase a new one?
edit: The PCM is not registering a CPS fault code. However, this could be a result of me clearing the codes just as the car started for the final time (mistake).
