Hello and thank you for using Just answer! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this. Feel free to ask if you need any further info.
On your model, you have a camshaft position sensor.
And yes, if faulty, or not reading on its trigger wheel, this would cause lack of spark.
However, first you need to check if the injectors (fuel injectors) are getting pulse.........or signal or power from ECU.....so they open and spray fuel.
And then, i would check for any loose wires in engine bay.....just make sure all connectors are clean and tight.....
Having done these, and if the problem persists.....the best way to tackle this, would be hooking a scan tool, and reading or monitoring the live data, to figure out, which component(s) is causing this......
You need to check for ECU power supply, and camshaft signal.....this would take a minute on a scan tool.....while trying to start.......and then you fix/replace accordingly.
i have tested that power is coming from the ECU by unclipping the connector to the coil
ok......and you have spark?
the most likely reason woudl be the camshaft position sensor.....
However, the real problem might be from the trigger wheel (the toothed gear, on which the cam sensor reads speed)....
As the oil might have caused damage to these..........
is there any i can take it of and get tested
So remove the cam sensor, inspect the gears.....(the trigger wheel), and take it from there......
you can first measure its internal resistance (so plug removed).....and at sensor, you should get around 380 to 460 ohms
ok i will give it a shot thanks
Next steps (test) will include either a scan tool, or a oscilloscope to read the signal
You're most welcome!!!
Thank you for trusting JA and myself.......get back to me if further info is needed.....positive feedback and bonuses appreciated...http://www.justanswer.com/car/expert-billy/
