Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question!My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question today.
Is it not starting now?Has the engine been out of the car?
Ok so, for example, if I have you unplug the crank sensor and the car fires right up, we have no way of knowing if the issue is there and resolved or not right?
did you use a factory cam sensor from the dealer?Also, can you have a scan tool on it to watch for cam and crank signal when you are cranking the engine?
I am not looking to see if they are in phase, but which one stops sending signal. That's why you only get one spark. One of them is being bad and not sending the signal to the computer. This prevents the first and injector pulse.
I am a little bit suspicious of the cam sensor since the code won't clear out and stay out. Maybe not the sensor itself, but the wiring from the sensor back to the ecm could have a problem.
If you have a meter, check the wiring back to the ecm for continuity. That would actually explain the sluggish running too if the timing was off according to the computer. Do you have a code reader that can see the engine timing?
Ok, 16 isn't bad at all, I would check the crank signal wire, and honestly if it looks good, I am thinking you might just have either a loose connection to one of these sensors or an issue with the ecm itself.
They aren't clear on the reason for the recall other then the engine could stop. You could call them with your VIN and see if the recall has been done. If not, then they will do it for you at no charge.
This could be the problem of course, 10yrs old you figure most are done, but you really never know. Any dealer can search your VIN and find out.
I hadn't heard back from you so I thought I would check and see if you needed further assistance with this?
