Quick Crankshaft Position Sensor Quest...

I have a 2000 E320. I was going to replace the Crankshaft Position Sensor. I'm confused on which one I need. The 1 clip or the 2 clip? I read somewhere that if your engine serial number ends in 370998, its the 2 clip. If it ends in 370999, it's the 1 clip on. My car reads 6937088. Which I found on the front of the engine.

Am I reading at the wrong place. Please help. Thank you.

I recently replaced the CPS on a friends car. I removed the connector from sensor and matched it up with the photo on the parts sellers page. The sensor I received fit the connector perfectly.

Yeah, I was thinking about doing that. But I was wondering if anyone knew which one I needed. I wanted to buy it in advance and do everything at once.

Chas, how long did it take to replace the CPS? And do I have to do anything special to the car after I install it?

It maybe took me 5 minutes to find the CPS, get the connector off and drag it out. You can't see the sensor, IIRC. You will need a torx socket to remove the single screw holding the sensor in place. Actually replacing the sensor took another 5 minutes. But you can't see what your doing so think it all out before starting.
I did nothing after replacing the sensor and connecting it. Car ran fine and the hot no-start was cured.

Go to startek epc, put your vin in, and it will show what you need for your car. Those 6 numbers they are referring to are the last 6 numbers of the vin.

Thanks!

No need for Torx - a 1/4" or 6mm socket also works.

Just did it on my 2000 ML320 - was the one clip version. Car now does not run rough intermittently like it has since brand new.

Resistance of old CPS was 1,700kohms, new Bosch one was about 1/2 this.
