Crankshaft position sensor?

Hi guys Does anyone know approximately how much it should cost to replace a crankshaft position sensor? I've gotten two estimates but one was incredibly low and the other seemed rather high... I'm a 21-year-old girl with minimal knowledge when it comes to cars so any help would be very much appreciated. I'm not trying to get ripped off but at the same time I want to make sure it's replaced with a quality part.

Thanks in advance!

PS - I'm not sure it matters but my car is a 2004 CLK 320 coupe.

Who told you that you needed a new crankshaft position sensor? The high or the low estimator?

Much depends on where you are located and where you take it. A dealer in a major city might charge upwards of $500. An indie in a smaller, competitive smaller market, maybe $150.

OEM brand is Bosch and they're around $50 online. That said if you are not going to DIY it's best to let the shop source the part so you'll have a warranty.

I'm also with your other response about a proper diagnosis, so that's also important.

If you click user cp and add details and put your vehicle and location in your profile you may get some shop recommendations or perhaps even an offer to give you a hand if you have an interest in learning a few DIY things about your car.

Good luck.
