Actually it's not that it wouldn't know the correct timing, if you are talking about the cam angle sensor on the exhaust cam, then it will not send a pulse signal to the ECU at all, so no spark, no start. You can buy a new hall effect sensor from Jaycar Electronics for about $19 and put that in your original housing, otherwise multiply that amount by 20 for the Volvo product. There should be a crank sensor and a cam sensor, both of these have to work to get the car to spark. The cam angle sensor fails more because it is subjected to massive amounts of heat.Answer
Yes it would. The engine would not know the correct timing.
There are several no start reasons. If you have a scanner tool it could isolate and reduce guessing. Your hall sensor, mass air flow sensor, ignition coil, could prevent the car from starting and run erratically at worst. Replace ignition coil first, mass air flow next. Try junk yard for the parts if your not sure. This could get expensive if at a repair shop!
Yes, a faulty O2 sensor might cause a 1993 Sidekick to stall. It would also cause the car to misfire and use far more gasoline that it needs.
A faulty crank sensor can do that.
A faulty crank sensor would cause no spark and no fuel.
Faulty vehicle speed sensor.
Yes it could.
It could be a faulty wire or connection. It could also be a faulty sensor or display unit.
Most common cause would be a faulty wheel speed sensor or damaged wires.
make sure your gas cap is secure, I know it sounds crazy, but you would be surpized.
Yes, a faulty O2 sensor will cause the check engine light to come on. Many auto parts stores will plug in an ODBII code reader to your Expedition to get the "trouble code" that tells you which sensor (there are 4) is faulty, free of charge.
NO it will not. They have NOTHING to do with oil usage.
Yes it can.
In some vehicles, yes.
could be numerous things, like a faulty oxygen sensor/a.k.a O2 sensor, a faulty mass air flow sensor. it all depends on what year make and model of vehicle we are talking about
A faulty temp sensor.
yes if its faulty its like going into safe mode your engine will not fire drive safe
Hey John==It wouldn't start. Of course there are other things that would cause it not to start. It uses the cam sensor to tell it where #1 is. GoodluckJoe
Hesitation can be caused by several things: 1. A faulty throttle position sensor might cause hesitation. 2. A faulty MAP or MAF sensor might also cause hesitation. 3. A problem with the engine control module might cause hesitation.
The coolant sensor moniters the coolant temperature. A faulty thermostat could cause the engine to run cool.
That is True.. A faulty speed sensor will cause no shift or late shift..
Replace the faulty speed sensor and the light will reset itself after a short drive.
p0171 fuel system lean bank 1 Causes include faulty oxygen sensor, weak fuel pump, plugged fuel filter, low fuel pressure, misfire, faulty map sensor, etc.
A faulty crank sensor would cause none of the plugs and injectors to work. Without an input signal from the crank sensor the brain will not know how to time it's signals. Most are designed not to attempt to function without the sensors signal.
I would suspect the crankshaft sensor. It could also be a faulty connection. the ecm will also cause it.
