    I just fired up my crx today, B18A turbo (i'm running it N/A right now) and i'm getting a code 4. CKP sensor, and I have no idea what that sensor is and where it is. What could be the problem and where is this sensor? I also have an erratic idle due to bad timing. Could this have soemthing to do with it?

    that would be the case if the sensor was shot....

    but, look to see if theres a PROBLEM, and thus, throwing the code, in the first place.

    check your timing with a timing light. thats the #1 cause

    it could be two teeth off and throw a code, but the car wouldn't still run and probably start... albeit hard.
