Crank Position Sensor Replacement - Stalling 3800 3.8 Engine
If you have a vehicle with the GM 3800 Engine which stalls randomly and may not always restart, then you likely have a bad crankshaft position sensor. If your vehicle runs perfectly but the tachometer sometimes registers incorrectly then you should replace this sensor ASAP before it leaves you stranded somewhere.

Crank Sensor Quick Fix
GET SOFTWARE HERE: http://www.autodiagnosticsandpublishing.com/Software_Catalog.html Crank Sensor Quick-Fix There are two types of crank sensors, and two types of tests, the 2 and 3 wire sensors. Here are the flash points for the crank sensor testing. 1) The 2 wire crank sensor generates a voltage, and is quick tested with a test light. 2) To test the two wire sensor, disconnect the crank sensor, ignition key on, hook the test light to battery power, and tap at each crank sensor terminal repeatedly. A spark click and injector pulse should be seen. 3) The 3 wire sensor has its own circuit, with 5 to 8 volt power, ground, and signal wires. Identify the signal wire using volt meter or diagram. 4) Take the test light and connect to battery ground. With key on, disconnect crank sensor, and repeatedly tap on the signal wire. You should hear a spark click and injector noid pulse. These are to test the ECM crank sensor circuit response. On both tests, you should see a spark click and injector pulse. Crank sensor is the main input to the ECM. If ECM working, then the crank is the only other issue. There are other ways to test, but involve an oscilloscope and more complex. This concludes the cranks sensor Quick-Fix.
