That pic doesn't look like it's from my engine? At least I don't reconize it. Can you confirm 2.4L DOHC? I think the CAM sensor is on the driver's side intake cam?
Are you refering to the "key's" that are on each of the cam shafts that align the spockets to the shaft? I'm so lost :(
Here is a different view
Connect the scope of cross pins two and three and tell me if the square wave is correct
Is there any way to test this sensor on the bench? I'm guessing not :(
That's what I figured :( Hey when the Camshaft Position Sensor fails is it just the sensor itself or the part that rotates with the Cam? The sensor is only $40 if you think I should just replace it. Got a pic of the location of the Crankshaft Position sensor? It's only $17.
Could you also address the previous question?

Just take a look at this picture and tell me if this is the location on yours , it will save you from removing the cover if it is I'm not sure because this is from all data and they were wrong on the cam sensor , so this information may not be correct but if checked this location first
REMOVAL - 4 CYLINDER
INSTALLATION - 4 CYLINDER
Trying to figure out location from that pic. Do you think that is the Harmonic Balancer on the right side. If so that would be the back side of cylinder 1?
Nope, then that's not the picture of my application. Let's find another one.
grrrrr these two manuals are driving me crazy sorry about that Bear with me if you would please I just checked Mitchell it showed the same exact location but there was also a footnote from two other shops saying that the Mitchell information was wrong . Here is what two other shops had found
How many conductors does it have. When I was under there I saw a sensor near cylinder 4 with a single conductor (eg wire)
Check out this thread. Sounds just like my issue
Just found it! It's on the front side, with two conductors.
yes this one was never solved he was leaning toward low compression have you tested the compression yet
No I have not, but it sure feels like I've got compression when manually turning over the engine when checking the timing. I'll run to Autozone for a compression guage and a noid light for the injectors.
I tried cranking it just now and hooked up the Actron Scanner and she's throwing code P0562 something about a low voltage situation. I've got the battery charger hooked up, she sounded rather week after all that cranking and no running.
What's your gut telling you? I could just start replacing stuff. WTF:(
Off to the parts store again :( Would you recommend me changing the cam and crank sensors without a prior test. The boss would not let me take the oscope home with me, so I can't test.
The Actron CP9580 gives me a live readout of just about every sensor but I can't find any data for the CAM or Crank sensors. Would they possibly we called something else?
Cam and crank sensors in hand, also purchased a compression tester, forgot that dam noid light, crap.
How do I get the dam thing off :)
Ok, rebuilt Cam Position connector and installed new sensor.
Still same symptoms. Crankshaft sensor next.
How do those compression number sound?
It sort of runs momentarily now :(
So just remove the filter and squirt some in? Is this a two person job? How much?
Will do on the starting fluid!
The sensor I thought was the Camshaft Position sensor was not. Or at least it's not the part Autozone(AZ) sold me. The one I pulled off has two conductors and the AZ part number SU3334 has three and looks very different.
The one on the right is what I pulled from the car. Left in the new part.
Ok, I've been reading that I have to remove the front motor mount to access it?
I thought I'd give the girl one last try before going to bed and what do you know, she fired up. Ran like crap for 30 seconds (must have been lots of unspent fuel in the cylinders) but then she purred like a kitten :)
It must have been the connector on the Cam Position Sensor. I'm going to put the old sensor back to be sure.
What ever it was, your the man!
I'll hit you up in the morning and we'll get square.
