Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX Thank you for your Question.
When you have a code P0725, engine speed signal code, that is normally do to a Cam Sensor or Crank Sensor.
Most of the time it's Cam Sensors..
for the Pathfinder.
So as for if you need to replace them both..
It's recommended cause when one goes, the other is normally right behind it or may not read as fast as the new sensor and still cause you issues.
But a Cam Sensor will cause stalling, hard start, jerking when driving
It's also recommend not to use After Market Sensors.
They never work right and most cases don't resolve the problem and generate different codes which has you spending money replacing parts you don't need
Cam Sensor especially.
If you were to install a After Market Cam Sensor, most times they will continue to cause stalling and hard start problems and can cause intake timing codes
So then you would be spending money checking timing chains and intake timing when it's actually just the after market Cam sensor..
So get the sensors from the dealer and I do recommend replacing both Cam Sensors..
im here just catching up on the dialog
Not a problem..
ok. so buy oem parts and buy both
the one crank sensor is easy to see
That is what I would recommend for your issue
Yeah, but that never goes..
the cam sensor is on the block somewhat hidden
You actually have one cam sensor on the front of your engine
Sorry.. Thinking of a different 3.5
You have one that is mounted on the front timing cover.
So it's only one sensor you would need to replace
easy to get too
You have two intake timing sensors that sit on the top and the one Cam sensor on the front of the engine
Yeah, it's not to bad if your handy
do i ask for a camshaft sensor or a cam sensor
If you asked both ways it's the same thing
real quick, the dealer is saying their is two sensors, one for each head. he is not aware of thr one in the middle. what name should i yell him?
Do you think by the description of the problem my issue is cam sensors (VTC Valve) or crankshaft sensor?
ok thank you
have a nice halloween
