    I have been having issues with my jetta I'll be at a light or on a hill and it dies for no reason. I have looked into it a little and seeing everyone saying it's the crankshaft sensor I tried looking for it and can't seem to find where it located, can anyone help please?

    The crankshaft sensor for the BRM engine is an integral part of the rear main crankshaft seal. To replace it, the transmission needs to be removed. A special tool is required to install the new seal/ sensor and to correctly reinstall the "sender" ring on the crankshaft in the correct position. The engine will also have to be locked at TDC using the appropriate crank locking tool. Failure to use the proper tools will result in an engine that will not run or run poorly. There is a YouTube video for installing the rear oil seal on the BRM engine. I would highly recommend viewing the video to see if it is something that you want to get into. A new seal tool goes for $200 + or you may be able to rent from someone on this forum. The seal/ sensor sells for aprox $60-80. A shop will probably charge $600 + to replace the rear seal.

    Part of the sensor is included on the seal carrier. This (036-906-433-E) is the part that attaches to the part on the rear main crankshaft seal. Take a look at this post for more info on the crankshaft sensor and malfunction causes and repair.

    Be sure to scan for DTC codes first to ensure that the sensor is your problem. The only sure way to diagnose your problem is by using a scanner to get a read out of the DTC's. If you don't scan, you will be taking "a shot in the dark" and may spend a lot of money & not solve the problem.
    Here is detailed information on the sensor / seal replacement if it is the problem.

    The 2005.5 thru 2010 are "MK5" body style and look the same on the outside but vary in engine type and accessories

    The sensor is the same for manual or automatic.
    Do a scan first to verify cause of problem
