try keeping it every in one thread. No need for 3 threads on one problem. Changing the sensor isn"t the simplest thing. Bout as difficult as doing a time belt, which girlfriend might as well do when you"re in there. You"ll need to take the timing belt cover and crank pulley off to gain to the sensor. You"ll see it"s attached v 2 small bolts. Some people insist on using the alignment tool when installing the new one. Ns personally didnt use one and haven"t had troubles however that might be just luck. Anyways if you dont have accessibility to the tool you can use something like a buisness card or feeler guages as soon as installing the brand-new sensor to make sure it has an even gap ~ above both sides. When you start acquiring into it you"ll understand what ns mean. Good luck.

it dosen"t "plug in" top top both ends. One end is the crank sensor the other end goes to the wiring harness. The dosen"t come the end either. It"s bolted to the block behind the time cover.

the other finish of the cable is under the entry manifold, there"s one single wire connector and a 4 cable connector that space in the exact same loom.at very first glance friend would have to take the behind timing belt cover turn off to change the sensor suspect you acquire a sensor the isn"t just a pigtail come splice in. You can put the new sensor in without acquisition the cover off if you pull the wires the end of the 4 cable connector, push the wires under the cover then put them earlier in the connector. If you space lucky, the replacement sensor has the same wire colors in the same place as what your engine initially had. To traction the wires out of the connector, usage some little pliers and pull the end the red wedge indigenous the connector then release the latches ~ above the cable terminals v a needle tool.

A bad CPS will certainly throw the time off. You might throw a code. Girlfriend will have actually fuel and also spark and it will not start

I readjusted mine b/c i had actually the engine personal on the bench- cheap insurance. For this reason no symptoms. However i have had 2 camer sensors walk bad, and the truck just bucks choose crazy and dosen"t run very well. I"d imagine the CPS would certainly have about the exact same effect.

ok, now right here is the next problem. I gave the password that come up already for pip failure and also cylinder i would failure. Now i uncover out the i likewise have a camer position sensor i m sorry i discovered under the intake. Walk on with 2 screws. So how do ns tell i m sorry sensor is bad and also causing this problem? they both need to do with timing, correct?

Currently i uncover out that i likewise have a video camer position sensor i m sorry i discovered under the intake. Walk on with 2 screws. So exactly how do ns tell i m sorry sensor is bad and causing this problem? lock both have to do with timing, correct?
we require details, details, details..........update your car profile so the looks like mine..............GIVE united state THE ACTUAL code #"S friend GOT...............the camshaft placing sensor is much more of a fine tuning the the timing. I think the truck will run if girlfriend disconnect it.......they did not start adding them till 95, 94 in califonria

unplug the video camer sensor and see if it gets better. Sounds prefer you have actually a california truck like me. It"s a real pain come change. However it"s not important for the van to run. Just unplugg it and see what happens. If it it s okay better, then you know.

cam sensor is more for fuel injection timing, crank sensor is an ext for timing, for this reason a misfire worry would most most likely be a crank sensor.my symptom were random misfire then one day it passed away on me, 4 hours later that started however still had a arbitrarily misfire, replaced coil pack and ignition module and problem to be still there, the last component to be the crank sensor...
