Should be a 5-volt reference signal from the pcm (engine computer). if you dont have power at the sensor, you may have a broken wire.

I have a 1996 chevy k1500 pickup that is running bad. I did a complete tune up, no change. The check engine light came on scanner showed O2 sensor, random misfire and Crank position sensor issue. The cats...

These models have a tendency to leak water at the back of intake, which means you have to remove the distributor to change the gaskets. Do you know if someone has done this? If so, have you checked the timing. It must be set by a tester or computer on these models. You cannot use a timing light. If cam retard is off, slightly loosen distributor. The engine must be running while adjusting timing. You have to bring engine above a 1000 rpm's before adjusting distributor. They set cam retard at 0 + or - 2 degrees. recheck after tightening distributor.

Where is the cam position sensor on a 1997 chevy 5.7L

The camshaft position sensor (also known as the distributor pickup) is inside the distributor which is driven by the camshaft gear and directly below the water pump, the water pump must be removed to access the distributor to change the sensor. Here is a picture of the camshaft position sensor.

I got a code readout of P1391. What does it mean for a 1996 dodge pickup with a 5.2L engine?

The Engine Control Unit continuously receives information from sensors on the cam and crank shafts. This code indicates that there was an intermittent loss of signal from one or other of these sensors due to a sensor fault or a loose connection. If the fault persists the ECU will loose track of the relative position of the crank and cam and this will give rise to erratic engine firing. Try thoroughly cleaning the contacts within the electrical connectors to these sensors and see if this resolves the issue.

Were is the cam sensor on a 1996 chevy 5.7 liter engine?

if you are referring to the CPS camshaft position sensor, it doesn't appear that your engine has one. my auto parts store catalog says that it has no info for that part. I have a 95 chevy van with a 5.7 and it doesn't have a cps..........

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee No Start

I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.
