Question about 1998 Isuzu Amigo
I bought a used amigo with a check engine light on. The scanner indicated cam shaft position sensor. I though i would check the timing before buying parts. Where should the timing marks be on the timing belt?
The timing marks on the cam shaft sprockets are easily to see when you get the timing cover off. When the two cam shafts are lined up (pretty much at the top), then the crank should be almost down at the bottom.
Get yourself a good shop repair manual - I got mine from E-Bay for less than $15.00 (used).
Also, if your going to change the timing belt, have the water pump replaces at the same time.

Which engine, we cant guess that.
2.2 or 3.2L or 3.5L?
why not log in to alldata.com and read both engine pages on belt.
if over 60k on belt its needs new one. the 2.2 is Interference engine
so ignore at your huge risk that belt.
sure the OBD2 monitor for CMP can be sensor bad
or belt loose, the error can be 1 in 10 pulses dropping out.
id be all over that belt.
there is no DIS ignition timing but you can still look to see if
spark is way off, and if it is, the cam did slip.
takes me like 5min to check with a strobe light(automotive timing light)
the engines use a HALL sensor, that almost never fails.
unlike the 2 wire coil type, that tune like a radio, 1930
why not remove the CMP and clean the crud off end.
this can make them 100% like new, just that, (like all VSS sensors)
why not post the real DTC errors. so we can judge, all errors.
P0341 or 42?

Do you line the arrow or the line up on the right cam
