Most of the time, you gotta pull it. The whole engine's gotta come out. The camshaft will have to slide out the front of the block. It's a whole lotta work.no you dont have to pull it allyou have to do is take your radiator out then your grill yhen you can continue taking out the cam
Not necessarily. However it would be advisable to replace the lifters and timing chain while you're in there. This is also a great time to upgrade the pushrods and rockers.
Replace the camshaft sensor
The camshaft of a 350 Chevrolet engine is held in place by a retaining plate or the lifters. The retention method depends on whether the cam is a roller or flat tappet design.
the camshaft position sensor is on the left side of the engine , at back on the upper side . you have to demont the conector , than unscrew and replace it
It is located on the backside of the engine. Go to youtube and type in how to replace camshaft sensor on 2005 Nissan altima and it will show where it is and how to replace it, that is how I did my one.
no The Chevy Celebrity 4 cylinder engine doesn't use a timing belt, it uses a timing gear. To replace the gear it is necessary to remove the camshaft from the engine as it is a press job. To remove the camshaft it is necessary to remove the engine from the car.
Need to know the year and engine size.
Replace the crankshaft and camshaft senors and then clear the codes with an oBD II engine scanner and that will fix it.

Yes, there would be subtle differences, but they are interchangeable.
You will more then likely have to pull the engine OUT to do that.
A bare Chevy 350 engine block weighs about 200 to 250 pounds. When you add in the crankshaft, camshaft, headers, and the intake it is more like 500 to 550 pounds.
Yes, you have to remove the camshaft from the engine to replace the timing gear. The timing gear is pressed both on and off of the camshaft using an arbor or other suitable press. Since there is not room to remove the camshaft in the car the engine has to be out of the car.
model year and engine size are relevant to the question.
Depends on which engine you have. More info please.
That is because of the way the gear on the distributor and camshaft is tapered. If you turn it the other way it will pull the camshaft towards the rear of the engine. That is all normal. When you put it all together it won't do that.
Code 11 means no camshaft position sensor signal detected during engine crankingFix : Replace the camshaft sensor
The camshaft position sensor is located near the thermostat housing. You should replace the crankshaft position sensor as well. This one is much harder to locate....it is on the backside of the engine that is between the firewall and the engine block. Both use the same sensor.
NEED to??? No. But the question becomes, why are you replacing the camshaft? You should always replace the lifters when replacing the camshaft. A worn camshaft usually indicates that there will be other wear as well, but if you just want to squeeze a few more miles out of the engine, you might be able to get by with just replacing the cam and lifters.
