This usually means there is a problem with the timing or the timing belt. I would pull the covers off and make sure the belt is intact. If it's not then you know it's a timing issue. The cam sensor code is there because either the cam isn't turning or it's so far out of time it's not providing the right signal.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Ok. Just a side note, the cam sensor was very warn when it was replaced.
Chrysler Mechanic: Mike V.v, Technician replied 10 months ago

That's somewhat possible because it's got some voltage going to it. I think I would check the belt though. It's possible the belt is still turning the cam, just out of time.

is the crank shaft pulley
bolt reverse threads?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Timing belt is chewed up
Chrysler Mechanic: Mike V.v, Technician replied 10 months ago

No the crank pulley is regular right hand threads. A long breaker bar to break it loose and usually you can remove the starter or the shield for the torque converter and lock a wedge in the flywheel so you can break it loose.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Also, please remember to rate my answer.

Thank you

don't need to remove pulley, but the belt is pretty shredded, so I'm not sure where timing is correct. I would guess turn cams simultaneously until they both line up on timing marks. is the correct, and if so which mark, there are two
Chrysler Mechanic: Mike V.v, Technician replied 10 months ago

HERE is the procedure to replace the timing belt. It's 5 pages and has the alignment marks on it as well.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
