Get car scanned for codes at most parts stores for free. Could be a CPS crank position sensor or cam position sensor. If crank sensor is bad, will not start. Get codes checked first.

How can you tell if oil sensor works on a 300zx?

This depends on what oil sensor you are asking about. The oil pressure sensor light on the dash will light up every time on the dash just before you start your car and go out as soon as the car starts. If you mean your oil level sensor then you need to turn your key on, DO NOT START THE ENGINE!!, while the oil is drained durring your next oil change. If you pay a quick lube place then warn the person you wish to do this!

What are the symptoms of a bad camkshaft position sensor?

A bad crankshaft sensor will cause a vehicle not to start. The sensor sends a pulse to the system so that the spark plugs fire at the precise moment. If the sensor is intermittent then sometimes the vehicle wont start for no apparent reason, or may turn off while driving. Not sure if the question is about camshaft sensors or crankshaft sensors. Some vehicles will run with the camshaft sensor faulty or unplugged. But it would illuminate the "Check Engine" light.

How do you know if your crank sensor is bad on a Chevy Lumina Z34?

They way you can tell if the Crank sensor is bad, is when you run the car for a while and then turn it off, and when you go to start it back up, it won't start,then it's your crank sensor, it's probably cracked, so when it heats up it expands and doesn't make contact. but if you let the car cool off, it will go back together and start up, A faulty crank sensor should trigger a check engine light.

What problems can an oxygen sensor cause in 2000 Honda Accord?

I have a 2004 honda the engine light has been on for a while, I have had it check out and they said they thought the sensor was just giving a bad code. I went to start it today and it wont start. wants to but wont. I checked the oil even though its just at 3,000 mile to be changed and it was so low. A faulty O2 sensor will not cause a no start condition. I will cause loss of power and poor fuel mileage. You need to take your Honda to a professional who can diagnose your problem and not guess at what is wrong.

Why does a 1984 Corvette feed much to much gas into the intake if the engine check light is not on but when the light is on run normally?

When the lite is on the engine runs on a set of specs. When itis off, the computer controls the mixture. Have the codes read and repair what is causing the light. Does this seem to happen at different times? Does it seem to happen when you attempt to start the car after it has reached operating temp? Does it just happen when youslow or stop for a light and stall the engine? If you say yes to any of these questions, it may be the cold start sensor. This was a pretty common problem when the car first came out and had GM baffled for a while. Replace the sensor and it should fix the problem. The sensor acts like a choke whencold, giving a rich fuel mixture for cold start. When it goes bad, it gets confused and will give a rich mixture after the engine comes to operating temp and flood the engine. To start a flooded engine, take off the top of the air cleaner, unplug the injectors, start the engine and burn out the fuel. Just before the engine stalls, plug in the injectors and the computer will reset for a while and the car will run fine until next time the sensor gets confused.

Can an oil sensor and a cam sensor defect cause a car to stall?

Yes. A bad cam sensor can cause slight hesitation of the vehicle, ultimately resulting in complete loss of power suddenly while accelerating. If bad, the cam sensor worsens, possible causing the vehicle not to start.
