Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.It usually means the cam sensor is bad. Sometimes its the wiring to the cam sensor. Do you have a multimeter for testing?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes I have multimeter
Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 3 years ago
Unplug the cam sensor just below the injection pump. Check for 5 volts on the Dark Green/Orange wire and on the Dark Blue/Red wire. Check the Light Blue/White wire for a good ground. Let me know what you get on those.There is also a TSB for reflashing the ECM to address this but that is when its intermittent.

Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 3 years ago
No problem.You do not need to remove anything else.Disconnect electrical connector at CMP sensorRemove sensor mounting bolt.Carefully twist sensor from timing gear housing.Check condition of sensor o-ring.

What Customers are Saying:

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.
