Is the coil pack working at all? It could just be a simple ignition ground gone bad, or even a power wire corroded to badly. Also, clean the connections between the plugs and wires, and also the coil pack and wires.

2.0l Can cam sensor affect both fuel injectors and spark?


Yes cam sensor can have that effect. The management system needs to know which stroke the timing cylinder is on - the crank sensor supplies information about crank angle and the cam sensor tells it which stroke it is on.

00 Explorer 4.0 ohv v6. If cam position sensor fails will it cause, #1 engine to die at hwy speed 60mph? Also upon trying to restart, it cranks very fast, is that poss. cam sensor failure too? Thanks


No, to the second question- sensor won't make it crank any different. Faster than normal cranking often means a broken timing belt -less friction with the valve train not moving, so engine spins faster. But you have a timing chain, right? Any engine noise when it quit at 60mph? You could watch some valve action through the oil filler cap while the engine is being cranked, to make sure the timing chain is still intact.
If all is good, check for spark and gas to the engine. If stopped while running, it could be a failed fuel pump or a problem in the ignition system- cam or crank sensor, ignition coil, ignition control module, some of the things to check if no spark.

Jeep cranks but does not start


Hi, First replace your plugs. Second check ignition coil(s) one maybe bad. replace with new. If all else is good, have your mechanic check the computer codes. (code scanner) Many of todays cars and trucks have computers to run and control the engine. (management system). Good luck

2002 ford zx2. I replaced the timing belt and the car is timed perfect but still wont start. Any suggestions?


Check for spark, if no spark check your crank position sensor, cam position sensor, plug wires, ignition coil, plugs properly gapped.

If you have good spark, check your fuel pressure, if good check your coolant temperature sensor.

Double check that you CORRECTLY aligned the marks on the timing belt, double overhead cam engines are more involved and require a specific procedure.

Location of cam and crank position sensors


The cam sensor is located at the front right front side of the cylinter head, while you are facing the engine.---------- The crank position sensor located below the pcv valve that is located on block not the valve cover, its below the exhaust manifold. You will have to remove the catalytic converter to see the exact view of both the sensors. The camshaft sensor is on the head. The crankshaft sensor is in the block, just below the exhaust manifold. ------------ Thanks.Helpmech.

Startin and runnin problems


Most common failure is crank sensor. Before running out and buying one, I strongly recommend that you do some further testing. Any decent manual has instructions for testing systems. Also: test both running and after it dies. (while running everything may check out as good) If you have spark when not running, check fuel filter as well!
