Hello! My name is Gary.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply shortly.

Should be on top of the valve cover.

Do you have a cam sensor code?

PO3050 cam sensor code and he said he cant find anything on the valve cover.He said he has a diagnostic code detector and it came up with the cam shaft sensor code. Just needing to find it as he thought it was where you said but cant find it.

Sorry he has cleared them now he just had a guess. So dont know exact code but it is the same code every time. We have new sensor just need the location
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Can't you attempt an engine start, and then see what code sets?

Can you attach a photo of the sensor you have?

Captiva diesel has many other reasons for a no start condition. Cam sensor failure does not prevent the engine starting.

Okay no worries will tell my dad to send me a picture. Also it is stalling whilst driving along.
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Captiva diesel would be my least desired motorcar.

They have many issues.

Your stalling could be a wiring fault, fuel pump, or one of other things.

I'll be here for your photos.

It's just had a recall for the fuel line... so they did that then it was leaking diesel so they replaced the fuel filter casing and now it's not starting its turning over but not starting... then randomly stalls whilst driving and everytime the code that shows up is the cam sensor.I hate it...
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
