Well there's the crankshaft sensor but it doesn't create any spark. The coil creates the spark. Suggest for hasve it read for any codes and go from there. The computer will usually be able to tell you what's wrong. No guessing that way.
Actually the crank sensor tells ECM piston position to then fire the necessary plug in the correct firing order.If your sure there is no spark crank sensor could very well be the culprit.
I changed only the camshaft position sensor on my 2000 Kia Sportage. So I don't think so.
i just had mine replaced by a mechanic and he told me it was sitting on top of camshaft
It was replaced by the Chrysler Sebring.It was replaced by the Chrysler Sebring.
The camshaft position sensor is an integral part of the distributor. If codes and tests indicate that it is faulty, the distributor must be replaced. Last I looked a cheap one was $1,500.
The interrupter magnet is normally replaced by removing the camshaft gear as the magnet is inserted through the back side of the gear.
there was a recall on this part for 2003. If you call your Infinity dealership you can have it replaced there.
Just replaced the sensor in my continental and it is no starts and will run flawlessly but won't be a reliable car
The camshaft position sensor on a VIN (X) model, it's located on the upper left-hand side of the engine block. It has two bolts and a flange with an electrical pig-tail with red connector attached. Easily removed and replaced. Have heard it should be replaced with genuine Mopar parts to avoid additional problems.
[img]http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/7/web/2551000-2551999/2551515_94_full.jpg[/img] number 2 is the camshaft position sensor, number three is the camshaft position actuator From my understanding th replacement is pretty easy. I have not replaced one, so I wont try and tell you how to replace it, however check out www.trailvoy.com for answers to any Envoy/Trailblazer question.
Camshaft sensor interrupter will send that code.
The camshaft position sensor is integral with the distributor. So, have it checked carefully by a professional because, if the sensor is faulty, the distributor must be replaced. That can get ugly expensive real quick.
the cranshaft and camshaft position sensor. the engine speed and cranshaft position information is supplied frome a sensor which is usually situated at the front or rear of the cranshaft.note that distributor-located engine speed sensor are generally being replaced with cranshaft-located sensors,as worn disributor drives and associated components can effect the accuracy of the engine speed signal. A camshaft position sensor,or cylinder identification sensor is used to determin the engine cycle position the information is used to provide individual cylinder ignition and injection cotrol.Many engine management systems use an inductive type of sensor that is located near the camshaft;when the camshaft rotates a single signal is passed to the ECU to indicate a reference point in the engine cycle.Some system manufactures may use a Hall effect-type sensor.
The distributor drive gear would be part of the camshaft. The camshaft would have to be replaced.
The camshaft position sensor is an intregal part of the distributor, therefore if the CMP sensor is defective the distributor must be replaced. Have it checked out by a qualified mechanic.
that's really something you'd have to look at for proper diagnosis. make sure you're not loosing power steering fluid because that's where your steering pump is located A front crankshaft seal or camshaft seal can also leak in the same spot.
If this is a 6VD1 engine, the camshaft position sensor will be located on the very back of the left bank head (on the inside, under the intake manifold). The easiest way to have it replaced or removed is to take off the intake manifold. The sensor is only secured with one 10mm bolt but it is a frustrating thing to put it back on with the intake installed, unless you have very slim hands.
Camshaft Position Sensor / syncronizer
The Secretary of War position (along with the Secretary of the Navy position) was replaced with the Secretary of Defense position.
It was a factory option. It should be replaced when dirty.
The solenoid pack on a Chrysler Sebring is on the bottom of the transmission. It is a bolt on unit and can be easily replaced.
You can check the Hyundai site... www.hmaservice.com... Sign up and there is a wealth of information on it. I just replaced my cam shaft position sensor on my 1999 Hyundai Sonata 4 cyl 2.4. It was a bolt and a clip. 2 minutes and done.. SONATA(EF) > 1999 > Engine > Engine ControlComponent Location Index > Camshaft Position Sensor (V6) > Camshaft Position Sensor (V6) >
The Camshaft sensor is located under the cap and rotor of the distributor. This is a common failure on the 2.4L engine due to oil leakage into the distributor. how is the camshaft sensor replaced on 1995 Nissan altima. what other considerations are there.
it`s in the distributer. you have to replace the whole thing to fix it, you cant just swap the internals. but if its having idle problems and you checked the check engine light, and it showed camshaft sensor it may be the fuel pump, that's what happend to me and i replaced the whole ignition system till i figured it at. good luck
It is located on the firewall side of the engine. Towards the passenger side. Just above the oil pan. (The original respondent) just replaced one on a 1991 3.1 liter. I was lucky that I had access to a lift. It was sort of a pain but I got it replaced in about 45 minutes. The bolt is 8mm. Use a 1/4 drive with a long extension.
