i think u mean cambelt not shaft as i cant see that snapping. Though the answer for both is the same yea it will damge the valve's and pistons this is because the cam will stop and the crank will keep on goin.This means pistons will meet valves at speed (not good) sometimes on petrol engines there is enough clearance so the 2 wont meet but u dont stand a chance on a diesel.

Where is camshaft position sensor on 97 Saturn?

There isn't a camshaft position sensor. If you are asking because of an error code you received, it is caused by a signal that mimics the same signal as a camshaft position sensor.


What would cause only the left side intake camshaft sprocket and exhaust camshaft sproket to be out of alingnment on a 1990 Nissan 300 zx?

That could happen if the timing belt slipped time. Something similar happened to a Nissan 3.0 liter I worked on a couple years ago. If the timing only skips a couple teeth it may only be off in one place. The car I was working on had a worn out timing belt tensioner pulley that caused the problem.

Can a code P1383 in a 99 ZX2 be for some reason other than incorrect timing?

yes the camshaft position is delay to de correct posision bank 1 ------------------------------- Added by ZX2Fast----------------- I'm not sure what the person above is trying to say. P1383 Ford Camshaft Position Timing Over Retarded This is almost always caused by a bad timing belt. It can also be caused by a bad camshaft sensor (usually sets a P0340 code so isn't likely), or improper oil weight. Anything over a 30 weight oil will cause VCT issues. Also, debris in the oil system will interfere with the VCT. The code can also be caused by a faulty VCT solenoid.

What causes valves on a Chevy smallblock to come loose making a tapping noise?

Mosy likely you have a camshaft that is going flat. When a piston goes up and down it pushes a rod that sits on the camshaft lobe or the high part of a cam shaft. This in turn pushes the valves. The motor spins turning the crankshaft which in turn spins the camshaft. When you have one or two valves that keep getting loose usually you have a camshaft that is going flat. This is caused by many different things. Poor installation. Not enough cam lube to keep it slipping in the valley. If one component resists even the slightest and stops during rotation this causes a lobe on the cam shaft to go flat.
