What is the exact code number please?

When you get a Cam Sensor code it will cause a Engine Speed Single code.

which cam sensor did you replace and what code is that?

Ahh, ok.. Do you still have the old Cam Sensor? I want you to check something on it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I do
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Perfect take a look at the Cam sensor where the electrical connector plugs into it. Where the pins are located in the sensor do you see any sign of oil in there?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it seems to be pretty clean
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

ok.. Just wanted to be sure. I have seen oil seep through the sensor and get into the connector.

When you plugged that sensor in, did the lock snap out?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it did
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Did you plug the sensor in first, then install it, or install it and plug it in?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
installed then plugged it in.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

I am thinking you may need to take some brake cleaner and clean the connector for that sensor. Then inspect the pins and make sure none are bent, and plug it in first, then install it.
