If you note, I corrected myself, but it did depend on the engine 4 or 6 cylinder. I did send you the part number and piece for the 6 cyl/ I was also going tp send you information on every component on the car, so please bear with me.

    The best advise I could give is get a diagnostic scan tool or take it to any mechanic and have hime scan the system.

    The Data Link Connector (diagnostic connector), is a 16-pin connector located inside the vehicle, under the instrument panel and to the left of the steering column. On Sebring coupe and Avenger models only, there are 2 data link connectors: the regular 16-pin connector, along with an additional 12-pin connector. The diagnostic connector is used as a link between the DRB® or equivalent scan tool and the PCM. The PCM communicates with the scan tool through the data link receive and transmit circuits. You can attach the scan tool to the data link connector to access any stored DTC's.

    On Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring convertible and Breeze models, the data link connector can be found under the dashboard panel, to the left of the steering wheel

Testing camshaft sensor on 1995 isuzu rodeo

Cam sensor is basically a coil, so use a ohm meter to test for continuity, but be aware, it can test good when cold and still fail as it heats up and a cracked wire expands. If the car starts and runs, but then dies and won't start again until it cools, this can be the cam sensor, crank sensor (if it has one), coil or ignition module. Sometimes replacing each part one at a time until you fix the problem is the only real cure. Therefore, if you can find a junk car to use parts from to test this could save money. Once you find which part is bad, buy a new one for lasting cure.

Where is bank 2 sensor 1 O2 sensor

wow , no car evens stated, of the 14 models. gobsmack me.
no engine stated but bank 2 is V6 o rV8 tundra?
here are the rules of banks.
the bank 1 is that bank the #1 cylinder resides.
sensor 2 is that sensor most closest to cylinder, 1.
now you going to ask where is #1

now that rule, works on ALL V engines.
the cylinder that is forwardward, is #1
now where is forward, that is the direction that has
the water pump pulley, crank pulley, and altenator pulles
or the pulley side,
#1 is most forward
and #2 is on other bank sitting back a bit.

wild guess, see this toy v6, see #1 sitting forward?

I have a 2000 saturn that will not start it is an automatic i changed the starter the alternator and the battery and it wont crank\

Fuel system, replace filter, check fuel pressure and see if its acceptable, or just go ahead and replace the fuel pump so we can rule that out as the culprit.

Where is the Crankshaft position sensor?

CKP sensor

96 is the first year. for this sensor, due to OBD2 rules in USA.
if not USA, then , it can be missing... stated location for better answers, Canada? , USA?
the FSM covers this car. factory service manual.
or alldata dot com.
so i open up alldata, and is in same place as G16 engines
in 96 they added the CKP to the front tip of the crank shaft.
there is a new front crack timing belt cog wheel.
and the sensors point to those new teeth ,there.
there is only one wired senstor , there, so is easy to find.
#1 cylinder, at crank pulley there is your sensor.

96 jeep grand cherokee limited v-8. changed fuel filter,pump,coil,distrib. cap,when going over 50 -60 with press. on it starts to spit and sputter like not getting enough fuel. any suggestions someone said...

I could be the CKP (crank sensor), but it could also be several other factors including the TPS. The correct way to start a diagnosis would be to see if any trouble codes are stored in memory. I'm assuming all basic ignition components are ok ; spark plugs, etc.

Code p1472

could be a number of things; cam shaft position sensor, fuel pump, O2 sensors, even VSS (vehicle speed sensor). The code you mention states:

P1471 Land Rover Variable inlet manifold motor 1.Short circuit to V Batt. (vehicle battery?).

P1472 Land Rover Variable inlet manifold motor 2.Short circuit to V Batt.

I suspect it could be an electrical short with one of the sensors. Someone suggested you have your fuel pressure checked.

99 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0L V6 Intermittent ignition

i would have to suspect a crank sensor and-or connection there.
i see you checked it with an "o-scope" but i would be willing to
bet you dont have injector pulse either. without the crank signal, there is no rpm input, the pcm doesnt even know its cranking!
i have replaced many crank sensors with this intermitent concern....
